God does not call the qualified, He qualifies the called!

Unashamedly in love with my Lord and Saviour.
Living life by loving others.

In a committed and wonderful long distance relationship with an inspiring California woman where our love of God and each other spans the 5,000 miles between us. :)


Passions and things that make this man include:
ministering to the young hearts of the world,
watching films,
submerging myself in the wonder of music both through listening and composition,
photography,
tattoos,
acting and theatre,
coffee,
adventures,
wildlife,
space and astronomy,
writing in many forms,
and exploring the beauty of the world around us.

If by this point you think we're on the verge of becoming new friends, feel free to inform me of this rather wonderful realisation...

Ask anything or drop in a prayer request too! I'd love to pray with/for you!
Be blessed. :D

This week has been fantastic, and a tremendous team made it all worthwhile. Inspirational young people. And they voted me as the winner of their NCS Awesomeness award of the week. Genuinely humbled; here’s my medal with our mascot, Apple Shaun (don’t ask).

A wonderful moment.

We had a meeting with the children this afternoon regarding our Summer Residential, and during that time they announced the staff who would be attending the school trip in July.

Despite the fact that the soon-to-be-Head and Deputy Head are among the staff going,

when they called my name out I got the loudest cheer of all.

Don’t misunderstand, i’m not getting prideful at all,

I certainly don’t think I deserve the reputation I have with these precious children;

I’m just sharing a short passage of time that was both heart-warming, and served as a beautiful and timely reminder of just why I adore my job and have a heart for working with young people.

God has oh so definitely placed me here for a purpose.

Never doubt His manoeuvring over your life, brothers and sisters.

I did a couple of Summer Holiday Clubs at my family Church, and here is some of the mail I got from kids over the course of the week each year.
Looking through these stories, compliments, jokes, pictures and sometimes almost incomprehensible scribbles (the children were aged 5-11) never fails to make me smile, and is brilliant evidence of just why God values these little ones so much, and why we should aswell!
God is so good to me in allowing me to work daily with children in a school as He knows how close they are to my heart, but being in this environment is so different, where I can not only talk about and demonstrate, but am actively encouraged to teach about the love of God and engage in being a Christ-like influence and invest in their future in a way that the education system does not really allow, even for such a short period of time; it’s such a fantastic opportunity and I always embrace it fully!
Thank you Lord! Just another way in which You bless me! :) <3

Ben Howard is a skilled, rare, and sadly under-appreciated talent in an era when music is more about the artist image than the sound…where the emphasis is money and me, not music and message.

This guy changes that, and I’m sure that slowly he will make his mark on this planet.

I will say one more thing - He is one of very few songwriters I know of that can not only change my mood, but change the season I’m living in.

Autumn? …nonsense, this track transports me to an afternoon of sun and flawless blue sky overlooking a meadow in high-tide July…every single time i hear it. :)

Long may it continue, Ben, bless you.
