Life Edit



Although this site is dedicated to creativity and writing, I am blessed to have found my life branching out into a few different areas all of which give light and colour to my world. So, if your interested, here is a small edit of my life. 


We are blessed to be part of an international family of churches relating through love and commitment to see the Kingdom of God extended on earth. The Church today is a kaleidoscope of personalities with an even more diverse palette of passions and motivations for living out this life we have in our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Within the Church of the Nations' (COTN) family, the heart that is in us determines what we all agree are our values, no matter where in the world we live and serve our Lord.

Freedom Hill is a family of Apostolic Churches advancing the Kingdom of God. We are passionate about developing and equipping leaders and leadership teams for planting, building, and strengthening churches. Freedom Hill is a Cluster of Churches within the wider family of Church of the Nations (COTN).

thirty one: 

I am privileged to be able to contribute to some beautiful publications and projects, both online and in print. Thirty One: is perhaps my nearest and dearest, it is a beautiful online publication dedicated to sharing stories about everyday people who happen to serve an extraordinary God. 



I am a girlfriend girl. I love my husband and my babies, but I also love my girlfriends. There is nothing like your girl friend to listen, laugh with. And then there are those extra special people who just "get you" and you don't just want to hang with, but collaborate with as well. My girl Rebecca is one of those girls. In fact she's my sister. And KaraBex is our fun space to collaborate creatively.
