My name is Kate and I love gardening, exercising, and being involved with my church social groups. I have loved to write from a young age, and took up poetry as a teenager. I have recently got married and am enjoying getting used to married life.

  • Jesus loves the little children

    “Jesus loves the little children, all children of the world.” This well known children’s song dates back to 1862 and reminds us from an early age how much God truly cares for the little ones on earth.

  • Through the storm

    Everybody on this earth faces challenges or difficulties at some point of their lives. No one is immune from trauma or suffering. But as Christians, how do we cope when things go wrong? And what does God teach us during those struggles?

  • Disable or God abled?

    So long as there have been people on this earth, there have been people with disabilities and impairments. From Moses having a stutter in the old testament to the blind and lame beggars in the new testament.

  • The Kate Tooke Story

    The story of how I came to know God isn’t your standard story of a good Christian upbringing, nor is it a dramatic rags to riches tale. My story is simply one of how a damaged and bitter young girl took the chains of rejection and turned them into the armour of God’s redemption.

  • To live is to die

    The Bible teaches us that God is the author of life and not only gives us life, but has the power to take our lives away. “for you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mothers womb.” (Psalm chapter 139, verse 13).

  • Genie in a bottle

    “You may ask for anything in my name and I will do it.”( John chapter 14, verse 14).  This verse confirms to us as Christians that not only can God do anything, but we have the right to ask him for anything.

  • Eye in the sky

    As Christians we know that God watches over us and is aware of everything that we think and do. But does knowing this really make us more accountable for our thoughts and actions? Or do we just trust that God will forgive us and continue acting the same way as always have?

  • Thou shalt not kill

    Abortion has been a controversial topic with the new Zealand government with the recent bill passing which legalizes abortion right up until the birth of the child. But is the pro life belief outdated? Or is aborting a baby actually murder?

  • The heart of worship

    Worship. It’s a prayer, a song or even just a public declaration. But however you prefer to give our amazing creator praise, it is a well known fact that worship is an essential part of our Christian walk.

  • Living on a prayer

    Prayer. It’s our hotline to heaven, our time with our Creator, and a one of the most vital parts of our lives as Christians.
