5. Inspire, Olympic Games, Resilience - The Bounce Back

Unstuck. Moving Forward.

It's been a while. I had nothing to say before, but now I think I do. Back in a Team GB & NI vest for the third time this year, I can't believe the complete u-turn my athletics career has taken over the past 12 months. For an update, check out past posts. But I'm… Continue reading Unstuck. Moving Forward.

My New Daily Prayer 

Jesus was born in a stable. Yet became the Saviour of the world. From terrifying & humble beginnings to being resurrected and eternally worshiped, there's a reason for it all. Don't be afraid of the pain. This is my prayer in the storm of confusion, in the midst of the 'Why me, why now, whyyyyyyy?" You can use it too! God's got us.

Life Lessons & Blessings – Overcoming Everyday Struggles

So I keep asking God when my time will come. Because I know as Christians we have to trust in ‘God’s perfect timing’, but at the same time missing out time and again on major championships or being unable to fulfil my potential is getting really depressing.

Beware! The dangers of filming and hiking in the Arizona desert.

I'd like to say: ‘No humans were hurt during the making of this film,' but cannot honestly end with this disclaimer. Filming action shots required real action – not just for the protagonist. Who knew that camera men suffered too? Here’s a picture of my amazing cameraman, Alpha losing in his battle with a cactus.

Patience – The Fruit of the Spirit

“So when you’re in the car I bet you’re the type of person to switch the radio station if a song you don’t like comes on?” Personally I change stations each time the DJ plays a song I dislike. Yet, here’s my training partner telling me he hasn’t switched his radio station ‘for about six months’. Now that’s what I call patience….or insanity! He told me to give it a go, so I did...

Keep Smiling!

I have recently been incredibly inspired by an absolute soldier of a woman smiling hard through all her adversity. And I had to share because smiling (and prayer) helps me get through a lot of the bad times too. Smile. We all know it is important to smile through the hard times as well as… Continue reading Keep Smiling!

The Power of a Crowd – the Easter Experience

I initially began writing about how gutted I was that America does not celebrate Easter with yummy chocolate eggs because their chocolate is painfully lacking in good taste levels. (UK chocolate is far superior). Then I checked myself and thought I’d articulate the true reason for the season...

God is bigger than our failures

Let me just quickly share with you a snippet of the message my pastor, Glyn Barrett spoke this morning (22.215) in church (http://audaciouschurch.com/grow/#podcasts). It really encouraged me to remember and trust in how magnificent and big my God is. It’s a word we Christians all know about but sometimes forget to grab hold of in… Continue reading God is bigger than our failures
