I am an expat wife on an adventure with God. An adventure filled with discovery, awe, disappointment, trust, hope and a whole lot of waiting.  I would say I am a blogger who is driven to share my experiences of living a simpler life, devoted to God, soaking up His beautiful creation.  We are in the process of adopting our first child, a tough journey, but worth it, with God showing us the way. 

Colleen & Erik Black

I live with my husband, Erik, our son, 3 dogs, Lucy, Hamish, and Zandu, and 5 chickens all called Elizabeth, in Zambia. I was born in Eshowe in KwaZulu Natal.  After moving about and spending 10 years in England, I moved back to South Africa and met Erik, and we are currently living in Zambia.

I write to inspire you to feast on good things and live a simpler life, by sharing biblical inspiration and resources that have encouraged me. Find me on social media too – links in the top right menu. I do hope you enjoy!
