Healing…Adoption…Completion 

My journey into motherhood, like so many of my journeys, started with Jesus.
Jesus gently leading me to acknowledge the loss of never going to be able to
have biological children. Jesus leading me to mourn, to cry, to surrender and to
allow Him to heal me. This was hard, but when it was done I was free, free to
move on, free to adopt.

The Gospel

We don’t need another hero 

We live in the day and age of the superhero franchise. Marvel and DC comics have successfully made movies based on superhero stories a must watch. Each one of the heroes has an origin story, a tale that outlines the hero’s fate as decided on by factors beyond their control. Although none of them set out to be heroes, they find themselves compelled to take a stand against crime. Tragedy usually strikes, propelling the yet to be discovered hero into his destiny, forcing him to emerge. These stories often portray the heroes as individuals with needs, weaknesses, and even passions, like our own, who choose to set them aside, accepting the life of loneliness and secrecy to protect those they love and a city in need.

Christian Living

Ubuntu in the ‘burbs 

I happily grew up in the village (read: Limpopo, cows, chickens, dirt roads, clean air etc.), and have now settled in the ‘burbs of Joburg. Just recently, I was struck by how different life is in these two worlds. Back in the village, life was great; you knew all your neighbours around the block and could easily pop in to ask for a little sugar for your tea, or a little help with something.

When I Look At My Life 

When I look at my life, I see a full testament of how God orchestrates every single thing I’ve gone through for a grander purpose.

I grew up in the small city of Mzuzu, Malawi. I was raised by very religious grandparents who were very active members of the church. I recall never missing Sunday school, so from a young age I had an awareness of who God is, as well as an understanding of right from wrong. But I wouldn’t say I was saved.

Out of the Charismatic Closet 

I used to be in the charismatic movement. I was a fully-fledged member. I had gone through the rites of passage; I attended the conferences, the leadership seminars, ‘prophesied’, ‘spoke in tongues’, lead worship, played in the church band, wrote a few worship songs, started a Christian band, lead a small group and even had Jeremiah 29: 11 bookmarked. Basically, I was in there!
