This Is the Day

30 days left in 2020. Can you believe it?!?! I know for one I can’t! This year has gone so fast, I can still vividly remember December 31st, 2019. My family and I were spending a couple nights with friends we visit every New Years. The five of us girls were eagerly awaiting midnight; watchingContinue reading “This Is the Day”

A Thought for Thanksgiving

It’s almost Thanksgiving, and things are beginning to get festive! In our house alone my mom has ordered fabric for my sister to make seasonal bunting, and this morning I went out to buy a pumpkin for my Thanksgiving centrepiece. In the UK, Thanksgiving isn’t a public holiday, but in the US where it is,Continue reading “A Thought for Thanksgiving”

When you’ve had a bad day…

The other day, I arrived home from school, totally shattered. My day hadn’t been going my way, right from the word go.

It feels strange to remember those days where we were basically trapped inside- it feels like a whole lifetime away! I am so glad thatContinue reading “My favourite podcasts”

Finding God in the Wilderness

This past summer, my family and I took a trip to north Wales. It was possibly the wettest holiday I have ever been on! Over the seven days that we were there, we were stuck inside for two entire days and spent a lot of other time inside because we couldn’t brave the wind andContinue reading “Finding God in the Wilderness”

I Am Who You Say I Am

A habit I’ve developed over the past couple of months is to speak words of truth over myself. I get it- that sounds pretty weird. But hear me out, okay? Since I’ve started Not So Perfect, I’ve felt like I’ve had to put myself ‘out-there’ a bit more and make myself more vulnerable. I’ve alsoContinue reading “I Am Who You Say I Am”
