In a bind

When Liz submitted this post, I couldn’t believe how timely it was – I could have written it myself, albeit with more ranting and CAPITAL LETTERS. I know from recent conversations with a lot of readers with young kids that it’s a highly contentious, relevant topic and I know that no one seems to have [...]

Christianity, sex, and an approaching marriage

We nearly posted this as V is for Virginity, as part of the AOW A-Z of Getting married, but we decided that this piece was important enough to have its own space, to not be part of a series. It is one of the most honest and personal posts we’ve ever had the honour of [...]

AOW A-Z of Getting Married – R is for Religion

  The AOW A-Z of Getting Married is a resource for brides (and grooms) to be.  It’s a welcome piece of sanity in an industry-saturated world where people are bombarded with what weddings they should have, what they should act like, and how a bride should feel.  Created by the team behind Any Other Woman, this A-Z is the first [...]

Having Faith

For someone who claims to be open-minded and accepting of people of all walks of life, I am ashamed to say I make assumptions towards people who are religious, deeply or otherwise.  I make assumptions about what they must be lacking by having faith, and rarely think about what they must gain from it, instead.

I believe…

…in angels. (*something good in everything I see….* Is that stuck in your head now? You’re welcome.) Joking aside, I truly do. I believe in heaven, or at the very least, I believe in the idea of something more after death. I believe in hope and the hope that faith can engender. I believe that [...]

My Confession

When this post landed in our inbox,it spoke to me. I love it because it’s cleverly written, very honest, funny and thought-provoking but I really LOVE it because it makes me feel a bit uncomfortable. Weird, I know. You see, I was raised a Roman Catholic and if I’d held on to my ‘faith’ as it were, I could [...]

Raise your hands if, like yours truly, you’ll be doing the majority of your shopping and wrapping on that 14th day…and if you’re all done, with labels written and ribbons tied, PIPE DOWN. I don’t want to hear it. Thanks. Today should be a post that [...]
