Hungry by Stephanie Hamilton

"We all HUNGER for more meaning.  Searching endlessly, and insatiably so...trying to fill the cracks that creep into our existence.  We are waiting for someone, or something to come and light up our lives, when all along WE are the solution, WE are the creation, WE ARE OUR OWN SAVIOR." Stephanie's book is quite unique, it is hard to really classify. When reading it I am drawn in by the inspiring, thought-provoking, and thruthful words that she speaks, reflecting on our journey into finding what we need to fill that hole inside, that hunger we feel, but know not what for.

As most of our friends keep telling us “It’s like you never left”…..and I guess you could say that in spirit, we probably did leave a little part of us back here when we left 3 years ago and moved to New Zealand unexpectedly. … [Read more...]

Into the Clear

Let me ask you something...... There's a question and a reasoning that's been playing on my mind lately, and it's almost been standing there with a red banner saying "Hello!! Read this message loud and clear...do you hear me?? Then, when you really get it...go out and SHARE it!!". And so my question to you is.... "Would you consider going for a day without a bath/shower? What about a week? Or even maybe......a month??" I can see you writhing now, I've gotten under your skin (which by the way is really, really dirty if you haven't noticed?? Take a bath will you!! lol), and it's amazing … [Read more...]
