Stuck for gift ideas?

Has it happened yet? That sinking feeling? The time of year has come around again where we have to be creative, we have to think and search and scour the shops for the perfect gifts for our loved ones. Some people are easy, aren’t they? My sister, she’s easy, my mum – easy. But my dad, […]

How to have a jolly holiday

A friend asked me a couple of weeks ago ‘What’s your ideal holiday with the family?’ My response was to laugh because in my head, those two phrases ‘ideal holiday’ and ‘family’ don’t go that well together. When I think ‘holiday’ I think sun, pool, a gripping book and good food. When I think family […]

Who are Vanessa and Haggai Mwiko?

How do you know when you’ve met ‘the one’?

I recently spent some time with some students. They interrogated me on issues surrounding love, relationships, dating and sex. It was the most fun I’ve had in ages. Being with them reminded me that when you’re a teenager, love is a mystery. That evening they asked lots of great questions. ‘If you get married, how […]

A time for hope?

Does January really need to be ‘Divorce month’?

On a slow news day in January, this story is often wheeled out and it can make for pretty depressing reading – January is the month during which most divorces are filled. But does it really need to be like that? I did a little investigating and apparently, it’s true. Not only that, but the […]

One year down the line…

A perfect gift!

What’s the most important thing in your life? Ok so that’s a really big question. A little part of me that wants to be flippant and say: chocolate! But, my honest answer is: relationships. My relationship with my Creator is number one. My relationships with family and friends come a close second. If I Google […]
