Hi, my name is Jane. I am married with three children. I love horse riding, reading and spending time together as a family.

Some of my favourite authors are Elyse Fitzpatrick, John Piper, Paul Tripp, Joni Eareckson Tada, RJ Grunewald and Timothy Keller.

I also have some “dead guys” I love which include Hudson Taylor, George Muller and Amy Charmichael.

Some radio programs, which have enriched my life, are familylifetoday.com, drjamesdobson.org and christholdfast.com

Just take a moment, began when my eighteen year old daughter and I would take a walk together to spend some time with each other.  We both love being outdoors and we would walk and talk.  As we chatted I would often stop and say, “just take a moment”, and we would look at the most amazing sunset, or the stars on a summer night or the storm clouds building.

There is always a reminder of an awesome God whose presence is very real.  He is never very far from anyone of us, if we would “just take a moment and look”.
The psalmist says, “the heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims His handiwork”. Psalm 91:1

To think that this majestic God gave up His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for you and me, so that we can not only look at His work, but have a very real and personal relationship with Him.

I pray that out of this blog we could travel together and learn how the good news of Jesus can be part of our everyday lives. I will be sharing how the Lord has been my strength through some difficult days of my life and my reason to give thanks for the great days of my life. By sharing the struggles and joys I hope you will find encouragement to cling to Jesus and trust that He is enough.

One of my favourite quotes comes from Timothy Keller’s website. “The gospel says you are more sinful and flawed than you ever dared believe, but you are more accepted and loved than you ever dared hope”.  This statement has transformed my thinking and my life and I would like to share that with you.

As a family we now stop often and remind ourselves to Just Take A Moment.
