As the problems in the world seem to overwhelm our own ability sometimes even just to breathe, let alone think of meaningful solutions, we need to remember that, whatever we are facing, God is still very much in control!
In this week’s Marriage Matters, Andy B and Jo face the fact that things can go wrong and use the phrase ‘pear shaped’ to describe difficulties in marriage. Jo wants us to know that they are not being ‘pearist’ and have nothing against pears! And, as usual, Jo and Andy share their own experiences to encourage and support us in celebrating marriages in spite of these unattractive problems and help us find a healthy way to grow our marriages.

There are times in our lives when we feel hopeless, when we can’t see a way out, a way forward, a way to resolve our circumstances and we lose hope.
The UK has seen a terrifying increase in costs for heating and cooking. In the middle of summer, heating seems like something to not worry about. But the latest estimates are that a family who are paying £300 in the summer, will be paying £500 by October and £550 by January.
Broken dreams happen to all of us. It can be as simple as looking forward to a cup of tea when we get home from work, only to find you forgot to buy some milk. It can be waking up to a letter that has been pushed through your door over night telling you that you have just 2 months to find a new house to live in, when you know there is no way you can afford to move (we've had that happen, more than once).
We've checked through the proof of Broken dreams, and Hope! And apart from a couple of super tiny tweaks and edits, we're good to go for Andy B's first, ever, proper, page turning book! This means that the books will be officially published in just 7 days time. Eek!!
We're getting super excited for Andy B's first ever book to be published. Andy B gets raw, and real, in Broken Dreams, and Hope! Through the many difficulties he has faced, and his many broken dreams, there is one thing that always keeps his head above the water – hope! And it is a hope that can not be quenched, no matter what life throws at him, or anybody.

Much like the temperature of our lounge, that fluctuates with the sun, we can choose to warm it via the fireplace, or open the curtains and let the real source of warmth in. And, as the lounge warms up, we open the door to the entrance hallway, and the heat then spreads through the rest of the home. Of course we could skip the fire, and just be cold and miserable, in the hope that it warms up with out any effort on our part. But, like life, that just doesn't happen! It's often said that hope isn't a strategy. But, it can be! Especially when that hope is not in a 'something', but it is placed upon a 'someone': that someone has a name, and His name is Jesus
Andy and Jo are fasting for a week, because of some big life decisions coming up in the future, and found themselves waiting for these big changes to occur, before they start really enjoying living life to the full. Can you relate to this? Waiting for something external to improve before you start enjoying life, and experiencing the joy that a relationship with Jesus Christ gives us? It’s easy waiting for a better moment to start dieting, or going to the gym. We can wait for the perfect moment until we make the move for a better career, or tackling that unloved garden. But, tomorrow never comes!
