See ya perfection

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

I don’t know about you, but growing up those subtle and not so subtle words and actions, ads and experiences that make you think perfection is required.  You feel like if you are going to fail at something you shouldn’t even try it.  If you might be embarrassed in front of others you shouldn’t give […]

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 […]

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 biggies of life

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

This morning as I lay doing my pilates with the music of my playlist “Captivate” belting out of my phone there were many swirling thoughts in my mind.  In part there is such excitement that in less than an hour I will be at BSF leaders unpacking a fav part of scripture.  We’ve slogged through […]

God’s extravagant love

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

I am sitting here in awe at God’s extravagant love!  Today I woke with great apprehension over some impending things.  And yet as the day has unfolded I know I have had a front row seat yet again to the extravagant love of my God.  He knows our fears, the cause of our tears and […]

Line in the sand

By Natalia Hatton | Blog

The lingering notes of Jadore remind me of walking down the aisle and starting the rest of my life with my wonderful man.  The beat of music making their way to my ears take me back down memory lane to so many moments.  A simple smell or noise remind me of the ‘friend’ days with […]
