Pearls from


The Butcher’s Wife

I am a Mother of seven…. so why do I still feel like a kid playing grown-ups?

I have a background in education but over the past 13 years, it is these 7 little Australians that have been my study and obsession, as well as helping my husband in our small business where I can.

I hunger to know more about life, love, faith and particularly the science behind creation. There are many areas I lack but I want to learn more. I am hoping that this can be a forum in which I can share some pearls I have found. It feels pointless to learn alone so I am hoping through this blog I can journey and learn alongside others. I would love you to join me. I am planning to post regularly on various topics where I know I need help, and it hopefully speak to the heart of others also.  And just maybe….. I will soon make it to adulthood!
