Thankful and undeserving of the opportunities and blessing that God has put in my life through the lives of those around me. And now I’m thankful for the biggest blessing of all, my wife and soul mate, Josie Kellyn Balka.” The bride went on to write, “So excited to begin our life together.”

Friday 12th July 2019. It’s my birthday. Don’t feel any different. Greg makes me breakfast, gives me a card and a huge bunch of flowers. Blues and cream. It is lovely that he always picks the colours. There are roses, daisys and stock, plus others I don’t know the names of. Not the most practical […]

The Godly Wife, the Modest Life

Home. This simple word means different things to many people. Some see physical locations, other see people.
