Real Lives

Bread and Whining - doing church with three kids in tow.

How do they do it-those lovely unflustered ladies, who arrive well-dressed and serene first thing on Sunday mornings!? How in years past I watched in envy as their little ducks come in, all fluffed up and bright, following Daddy duck and Mummy duck to fill up a row - quite near the front- with never a quack. I mull their great achievements as we arrive (- do they beat them? do they bribe them? do they practise all week?) 


Early miscarriage

Can you describe your situation?

Having had two pretty uneventful pregnancies, we went into the third one with our thoughts turned towards how I would cope with two children while dealing with morning sickness and what the early days of having three children would be like. We didn't really consider that this pregnancy would be any different from the others. Obviously I knew that things could go wrong but assumed that this wouldn't be the case with me.


When my Dad died

Can you describe what happened to you?

It was just a normal morning. I was getting out of bed when the phone rang. I can't even remember now whether it was my mum or my sister on the phone, but they said that my dad had been taken into hospital suddenly with chest pains, and that they were working on him now. This had happened a couple of times before. The hospital would keep him in for a couple of days hooked up to some machines, "under observation" and then make some adjustments to his medication and let him out. That's what normally happened. I was scared, and I said a pretty desperate prayer for him that God would keep him safe and not let him die,


Living with allergies

Can you describe your situation?

The first few weeks with our first baby, Reuben, turned our lives upside down. He never slept for longer than two hours and he sicked up after each feed but mess and tiredness comes with the children. I assumed it was the same for everyone.

At about eight weeks, his scalp became dry and crusty. "Cradle cap" we thought, but none of the normal remedies helped.


Toddler praise at Tiny Church

Where did the idea of running the service come from?

A small group of young mums at our church have started running a small pram service each week for pre-school children and their parents to come to. It is called 'Shake, Rattle and Praise.' A friend and I both had the idea, independently of each other. We wanted something we could invite non-Christian friends and their children to. We each had a friend who was thinking of having their child baptised at our church at the time and we wondered whether we could offer them a gentle way of in. Cell groups, though wonderful in their way, must be an odd place for a non-believer!
