The small things

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

Yesterday I had a lovely catch up with a friend, we met up while her boys were at the movies.  After picking some new walking shoes for her we chatted over a sandwich and tea.  Then I went on my way and made a pit stop before getting home.  Amidst the fruit and veggies I grabbed […]

Letting go and letting God

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

What a wonderful journey with God this past month has been as I’ve dug into the first chapters of John to teach.  In that space God has been layering truth, peeling back barriers and tending to my inner most being. The girl from 2015 who felt on top of the world and ready to soar […]

Beach Rookie

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

The long weekend we had for Waitangi was an absolutely stunning summer weekend.  The sun was shining, the air was warm but with a nice breeze, the sand was hot and the water was just right.  We like many, flocked to the beach with some friends that were staying.  We got out of the vehicles […]

After a wonderful three week break in the States it hasn’t been easy to get back to reality.  I miss spending all day every day with my wonderful man.  I miss not being away from technology and demands.  I miss not seeing and experiencing new adventures, rather back into the familiar and known. And truth […]

Take Two

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

I love that God does not give you one chance, He allows you another take at it.  Or in some cases many more than that.  God’s patience is so much more than we deserve or can understand.  But given all the same. Last year I came to a place of surrender where many things were […]

The art of suffering

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

Since Friday I have had the pleasure of sitting across the table with people on three different occasions as I listen to their journey and walk beside them.  As I’ve listened my heart stirred and my mind ticked.  Then on Sunday at church our pastor spoke from 2 Cor 9 on generosity and the misconceptions […]

Got your fragrance?

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

This morning I was dashing about once more, I know, I need to slow down, but I am working on it!  Anyway as I was finishing off in the ensuite I couldn’t remember if I’d put my deodorant and perfume on.  A quick smell of my arm and I realised I had forgotten it, but […]
