Loved ones have been rushed into intensive care […]

We agreed that this pressure is unhelpful and we agreed that working towards our own goals at our […]

Trust God

Inner Beauty

‘People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at a person’s thoughts and intentions’. We spend hours each week maintaining our outward appearance – our clothes, our hair, our skin – such things take up a large proportion of our daily thoughts. When we look in the mirror and see something ‘wrong’ with ourselves– […]
