Welcome!

I’m so glad you’re visiting. Let me take you on a quick tour.

Who is Fruitful Today for?

My devotional posts and printable resources are designed specifically for Christians living with illness and grief.

Grief

Grief is something that many Christians experience… and it’s an experience we aren’t always sure how to deal with!!

Here, I dare to dive into the murky waters of grief and brokenness. (Didn’t Jesus do the same? Isa 53:3-4, Phil 2:5-11)

Here, you will find gospel-focused spiritual guidance. Here, you will get emotional support to sustain you in the bleakest seasons of your life.

And here you will sense empathy: I’ve been “there”. More importantly, Jesus has been “there” too.

You are not alone.

IllnessΒ 

My own story centres around invisible illness β€” a chronic neuro-immune condition, plus depression and anxiety β€” so I do tend to focus on those in my posts.

But the themes within my story overlap with other conditions and situations β€” experiences you might be familiar with:

Waiting.

Uncertainty about the future.

Hope.

Disappointment.

Learning to accept things that I can’t change.

Learning to face my limitations with dignity.

Realising I’m not ultimately the one who controls all things in this life (no matter how much of a control freak I’m inclined to be!! πŸ˜†).

Although I may not have experienced your specific illness β€” or loss, or trauma β€” I hope my devotional resources will resonate with you and bring you much-needed comfort within your own brokenness.

One final note: I don’t make any money from this site, and I don’t have any affiliations with outside sources.

And that’s the end of the tour.

I hope this overview has helped you to work out if Fruitful Today is a good fit for you. Happy browsing!
