8 Great Christian Songs To Find Peace In The Storm

Hi there, this is our first post, and to get things rolling lets start by getting some peace in our lives. Hope these tracks below inspire and encourage you as much as they do me. Since this is the first post, please note the format as this is how I intend to do things moving forward. We start with a hymn and then move to more contemporary choices as the list goes on. Much Love Hayley xXx 




"I love this old hymn I like to start these lists with a older song because I think it is important to remember where we came from and how praise and worship has changed over time, but the message still needs to be full of reverence to God" - Hayley

Graduating Sheep School

Wrapping Up Sheep School

_sheepyschool_sept2015

Sheep School for me, was a time of transition in many forms. It was good to get back to the foundations of what I believe and am all about, but some unexpected changes took place during September, (which I look forward to telling you about most soon) that got me thinking about life and death and everything in between. I told you my story and then I said in one of last months posts that it is important to drop your story at the foot of the cross and move on. I highlighted the importance of working with other people, and kicked off a new feature for this site and overall September was a good month here, but that said I am happy to be moving on! I am so excited for the new series starting right now!

Introducing Mysterious October

Lambi_mystery_oct2015rt
Over all for me September was a time of settling, and I am sure it was for many of you too. Despite of this, my life is far from stable!
There are some big decisions I will have to make shortly that will be life defining moments. This together with some other life experiences and thoughts I've been having lately has contributed to the decision for this months theme to be all about mystery.
Let me be clear at this point, I know that this theme can tie in very well with Halloween, but I do not celebrate it at all, so nothing I write will be Halloween themed, (unless I decide to highlight some scary things, which I guess could tie in)
In general this time of year, people are far more inclined to ask the big questions. The days draw short and the nights are bitterly cold, meeting friends and family takes a back seat to working to save for Christmas and staying in with a hot-chocolate in front of a screen of some kind.  Many of you reading this may not usually read that many blog posts, but because of the cold you are in right now and you are not alone. My blog always gets the most attention in the Winter months, because of this I am extra careful about what I decide to write about.
I feel like much of what is happening in my own life right now is a little mysterious and I am sure I am not alone. I want to use this month to call out a few things that need to be said ( in love of-course) I know timing is everything and so right now the time just feels so right, so I am going to let you see a side of me I rarely talk about publicly.

How This is Going To Work 

We are going to start in familiar territory by  exploring mental health, I'm going to tell you my stance on social justice issues, and warn you about some of the tactics of human traffickers. We are going to look at why working together works better then standing alone. We will look at the mystery of how grace and holiness can be friends. We will look at the spirit world, (yes, I just said that) and expose some of the reasons why it's important to look after your spirit if you want to have a healthy temple. I am going to let you in on some things happening in my personal life, (something I very rarely do) and there will be a few surprises along the way in this series.
As usual, I am not going to tell you the order, but my general posting days are ,Wednesday Thursday and Saturday, although you will see posts on other days this month.
Coming up this week,
  1. I want to explore the mystery of how two opposing feelings can exist at the same time. How can we still have peace and clarity when our souls are in turmoil and confusion?
  2. What is home?
  3. Working Together Wednesday
I am so excited to get started on this series!!
More so than the others because I get to share my heart as it is now. No past, no future just now. That's so amazing for me because my head usually either back there or going somewhere, so to be in the moment is awesome!
Anyway I think that's about it for now.
Catch you next post,
Love Hayley
