Throughout my whole church life I was made to believe that all of the people who left our church and ever questioned its motives were bitter. So very, very bitter. We were told to be better not bitter. What does bitter mean? The church I went to for 17 years definitely left a pungent taste […]

As you can see from my previous posts there is a lot of rumbling within the church community both locally and globally. Church abuse is all to common a subject now. Every day a new story is released into the media all ranging in their topic and severity, one of the latest being the sexual […]
Yesterday we decided to go out and collect dandelions to make the infamous dandelion honey we have seen for several years on social media. After finding a few recipes online we found the jist of the recipe and what it required. I’m not going to bore you with pages of info before I share the […]

It is time to speak up and stop letting narcissists get away with hurting people in the name of God.

But in all honesty that’s a load of rubbish. Home education isn’t for everyone and that’s ok, but it’s definitely for us. We are […]
