If you’re yearning for the beauty of a genuinely life-giving home, where a real family can flourish — this book. Written by my friend and mentor, Sally Clarkson, this is a breath of fresh air and inspiration when you’re endeavouring to make home the place your family longs to be. A deeply encouraging and inspiring read to start a new year.

He walks right across our waves to us, pulls us real close & whispers:
“The winds obey Me. So the one thing I ask of you again & again is: Do not be afraid. Trust Me.”
And there’s this nodding right in the face of the gales: If even the blasting winds obey Him — then our storms aren’t, cannot be, bigger than our God.
Jesus didn’t just calm one storm — He can calm all our storms.
It’s like a steadying rocking into a sure rest right there on our waves:
‘Do not be afraid. Your Papa is the Maker of the universe —
so you never have to be afraid.’
Then there’s the exhale… and a Giving it to all to God so there’s getting some rest… the deep, carrying rest of God who can calm every known storm.
That’s all for this weekend, friends.
Go slow. Be God-struck. Grant grace. Live Truth.
Give Thanks. Love well. Re – joy, re- joy, ‘re- joys’ again
