Allowed

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

This day seventeen years ago the declaration for our desire to have children softly sounded in the ensuite bathroom as the birth control tray dropped from my hand and bounced at the bottom of the rubbish bin.  It was a subtle sound, a small action in one sense and yet the very swirling in my […]

No Encore

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

My wonderful man and I went to a gig on Saturday night and as we arrived I knew already that there would be an encore.  I don’t know why it bugs me so much, but it does.  We all know the full set has been decided on and will  be completed, that two to three […]

The pursuit of holiness

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

Most in life, myself included, pursue happiness.  There was even the movie with the cute kid in it and the dad who had an uphill battle to better their life.  Showing that happiness is not fluffy and easy. But with Easter my thoughts went to our Holy God…and His desire for us to to be […]

Overhauling Life

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

Today I’d just finished sweating it out at my Thursday morning 9 Rounds class and was chatting to one of the lovely instructors who’d patiently, encouragingly, without judgment got me to try jumping on this large box as part of the routine.  I failed, but I’d tried over and over again and that was the […]

When God’s got you!

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

At five this morning I woke, knowing that the hope I had was once again dashed for this very moment in time.  But as I thought on things I know my God is not only for me, but has got me so securely in His tender, purposeful hand.  I am grateful for His fingerprints that […]

What’s in a name?

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

This week at the bible study we have poured over Ruth and what amazed me was the attention to detail that was seen as the names and meanings were looked at. We see that Elimilek’s name meant ‘my God is King’ and the roots of his life were grounded in God, so that makes sense. […]

The Intrigue of Prayer

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

Ever been confused by verses on prayer and the unpacking of those where it says to ask and you will receive? “And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son” John 14:13 “He replied, Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, […]
