Hello readers, and sorry for the long break

By Sarah Moore | Aug 12, 2019

With more than £500 million raised inside 24 hours to help rebuild the gutted building as people across the world suffer illness, disease,…

What is marriage?

By Sarah Moore | Apr 14, 2019

This week we’ve been celebrating our wedding anniversary and it got me thinking afresh about the unique, crazy yet wonderful institution that is marriage. We’ve all heard the old joke that marriage is like an institution – borstal. But, while we can joke, there’s no doubting that marriage is an important subject to consider. From…

Mother’s Day, a day for reflection and a day of challenge for many

By Sarah Moore | Mar 31, 2019

So today is Mother’s Day, a day when thousands of small children will excitedly hand over slightly-over-glued homemade cards along with breakfast in bed while grown men desperately scour supermarkets trying to remember what the flowers are called that their matriarchs like and what on earth the things even look like.

Whatever your circumstances, never forget that somebody loves you

By Sarah Moore | Mar 24, 2019

Sometimes songs come onto the radio with lyrics that make me cringe about the message they’re giving to those who hear them. For example, if I hear Big Girls Don’t Cry I have to switch stations for fear that might just get too angry about the potentially-damaging wrong impression it could be giving impressionable members…

Since we said goodbye to our little Lentil, we’ve been praying that we would in time be blessed with his little brother or sister. And that time has come. Baby Moore is expected in September.

Give up chocolate for Lent? God doesn’t need me to be a quitter.

By Sarah Moore | Mar 5, 2019

It’s that time of year again; the time when we traditionally eat our body weight in pancakes on Shrove Tuesday then give up something we love until Easter. I thought about giving up something this year but then I remembered, I’m no quitter. But in all seriousness, why do we give up things for Lent?…
