In November 2013 I felt God inspired me to start writing poetry, and I never want to stop. In January 2014 I felt called to share that poetry, so created this blog, which then began to also feature more varied creative writing.

If the blog glorifies God, it was worth writing; if the content means something to anyone else, it was worth sharing.

The blog, and its contents are constantly developing – all comments are very welcome.

In my first year, there was generally a piece of my own original writing every day Monday to Saturday, usually poetry. Thursdays featured verses from the bible, and on Fridays a haiku dedicated to a charity. Otherwise you will find worship music, videos, quotations and the work of well known poets mixed in with my own work.

The second year was a struggle with less than a quarter of the number of posts compared to year 1. Year 3 saw a bit of a bounce back.

2017 is now the fourth year of Faith Unlocked and I am trying once again, with God’s help and for His glory, to find the voice He has given me and the purpose to which it is directed.

You can read a bit more about what interest me here.

I hope you enjoy reading my blog! God bless you!

  2. Hi. I just wanted to say that it is great to see that you have recently visited my blog. I haven’t seen you for a long time. You know, frequent visitors start to feel like friends. And when friends come back after being gone for a while, it feels good. So thank you.

  3. Thanks for the “like” of my recent post. Your poetry is so encouraging and insightful. Thanks for sharing your gift. I will be back for more! Blessings upon you.

    1. Thank you for your kind words. (I apologize for not replying sooner. When life got busy, I lost track of several important messages in my in box.)

  4. Thank you for stopping by my blog.

    I really like your “About” page, but wondered if you might prayerfully consider changing one thing: “Evolving” is an evolution word, and I think is a bit deceptive. I prefer to use the word “develop”, which more truly connotes intelligent special creation. This probably doesn’t matter to most people; yet, I cannot help thinking there may be times when precision of language is pretty important.

    I look forward to reading more of your blog.

    May God bless you!

    Best Regards,
