Reading for me is a wonderful combination of necessity and recreation.

Some books that I read give me an opportunity to learn, whilst some keep me entertained.  Of course, the very best have a way of doing both.

Every year, I set out to read every day, with the goal to complete 25 books and in 2018, I have had the privilege of learning from, and being entertained by, some terrific writers.

Here are my favourite books from 2018: Read the rest of this entry »

Merry Christmas from Madison, Logan and Hayden

It’s that time of year again when we send and receive Christmas cards with updates from friends and family.  I have a few family members who write lovely letters with the details of their year and so here is the annual message from our tribe.

22 years ago, my darling Karen walked down the aisle and we made a covenant together and started an exciting adventure.

That adventure has led us across Australia, from the Pilbara in north-west Australia to the suburbs of Melbourne.

We’ve holidayed throughout the country and in her homeland in the UK.

We’ve had two houses and a range of jobs and cars.

For over 8 years, I have run my own resume writing and career coaching business, the last 6 years full-time.

It’s been a fantastic opportunity and it has been a privilege to work closely with thousands of clients from around Australia (and globally), helping them to achieve their career goals and find meaningful work.

But that has come to an end and I had my first day in my new role today.

When God wanted to express how He felt about us, He didn’t send a love letter.

He didn’t send flowers, chocolates and a card.

He didn’t read us a soppy poem or write our names in the sky.

He sent his son, Jesus.

Happy 13th Birthday Hayden

He’s like a big stag.

An athletic beast who can run all day and crash through anything in his path.

And yet there’s something likable and gentle and humble about this brute.

He’ll crunch an opponent in a tackle, then check to make sure he’s OK.

He enjoys sport, but footy is his true love.

23 years ago today, our relationship started on a playground in Parkville.

It was a lovely summer evening when we shared our first kiss.

It’s beautifully symbolic.

We’ve been on the see-saw a few times.
