Here’s the blurb:

We can change the world.

There are God-dreams stitched into our DNA. He’s given us each a slice of history to live free – full of wonder – for his glory.

So what stops us?

What stops us from earning our numbered days, living on purpose and being the revolution?

In Dragons and dirt, Dalene Reyburn battles the external life pressures that punch our dreams in the gut, and the internal heart entanglements that keep our capacity for good buried deep. Because when life happens, things break on the outside and things break on the inside, and what we do with that determines the fullness of our lives. We can look back with regret and look forward with fear and live a mediocre present. Or we can recognize that we have space and scope to leave the planet better than we found it.

This book is a reminder that when we brave the dragons that breathe fire at the borders of our influence, and when we dare to be honest about the dirt we hide in our hearts, we can get busy living.

We might even change the world.

The Next Right Prayer: daily hope for moms

img_1531No catch. And feel free to pass it on to a mom you know. 

Because raising kids is difficult and devastating and the most beautiful thing you’ll ever do and your heart will get ripped out happy and whole. Over. And. Over.

So I wrote a month of prayers for you, friend. (And for me.) You can clutch one close day-in-day-out, every month of the year.

Shall we do this thing? Start the revolution? Change the world?

Other Writings

I’m part of TheWordSpace – a team of writers who post short daily devotionals to the smartphones of about 10 000 teenagers and young adults.

I’ve also contributed to (in)courage, Beauty for Ashes, Joy Of It, Katie Reid, Scripture Union, brettFISH and various poetry anthologies and online devotionals.


For two and a half years I blogged here to survive.

Our eldest son, Cameron, was born with dense bilateral congenital cataracts and microphthalmia. I wrote about surgery and visual therapy. Setbacks and grace. Fear and hope. It was an incredible way to connect with other parents of VI kids. And it’s an archive of how we learned the terrifying joy of watching your heart walking around in someone else’s body.

For three and a bit years I blogged here to revel.

I hunted for God-glory in the marvel and the mess of raising little men. I wrote about motherhood and marriage. Cuteness and courage. There’s some poetry. And tons of love letters to my boys about life. All things magnificent – heart-breaking – real. All things worth celebrating.

Flight to Fabuland

(©2007, Phakela Press)


Here’s the blurb:

Fabu what?!?!

Something marvellingerous is about to happen.

Big Ed and Big Art have been looking for adventure, but they certainly weren’t expecting this. It’s the Christmas holidays, and when Professor Zoododge agrees to lend them his pet helidonk, they set out on a quest of epic proportions. They go from the Himalayas to Monte Carlo, across the globe and in between, all on a mission to reach the legendary Fabuland – where people trade in tea and where anybody can be fabulous.

Unfortunately, the Two Bigs are not the only ones who want to get to Fabuland. A fiendishly evil, annoyingly mysterious and most unfabulous somebody is hot on their trail, trying to trip up their every move…

If you haven’t read Flight to Fabuland, you totally should. You can order here and I will post you a signed copy – in a brown paper package tied up with string. ($6.50 / £4 / €5 / R70 excluding postage)
