In the clouds

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

A perk from my years as a missionary kid was the flying, changes and adventures.  I loved flying from New Zealand to Australia, then onto Indonesia and back again over the years.  Once all the sitting around the airport and goodbyes were done you got to get on a plane.  That is where the fun […]

Created for connection

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

I myself am no stranger to friendships and relationships being hurtful and ending.  You can easily put up walls, be cautious on entering new ones and adapt to a smaller world.  Lately I’ve been connecting with people who feel sidelined, abandoned and many other hard and real emotions.  While I listen I do get it […]

Being teachable

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

Now a days there is the push for independence, blazing your own trail, achieving at all cost, being known for strength and resilience.  Some of those things are good and right.  But in balance with other character traits and processes. I think of things people have pointed out in me, but unchecked they can be […]

The unnoticed

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

A few weeks back a friend and I were going for a stroll to the park with kids in tow.  The conversation turned to her new found appreciation for all that her parents did for her when she was growing up, now that she is pouring into her two wee boys.  She asked me some […]

The power of words

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

I remember walking through the tall grass tickling at my ankles and nearing the great big tent that was filled with people and one lone woman on the stage.  As I pulled the canvas back and snuck my head through I remember being in absolute awe.  I would have been  somewhere between the age of […]

Sensitivity tended to

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

I’ve always been sensitive!  From crying in bed at night at a young age and my mum asking what was going on, only to find out I was carrying the burden of a friend.  To being allergic to a variety of things that saw me sneezy, eyes flared or skin crawling. Through our journey with […]

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 […]

View Adjuster

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

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 […]
