Take a ride on the ‘peace train’ Day Seven


Day Seven Peace train series

Peace, what is it?

In contrast, we can accept that peace is an internal condition.

One we navigate each day by challenging our assumptions about how life should be, reviewing our goals and aspirations, interpreting feelings, revisiting our priorities, and making corresponding modifications to where we are spending our time.

It comes back to us – we determine and judge our own peace.

The most complete word that encapsulates my desire for peace is shalom (the Hebrew word for peace): wholeness, health, welfare, safety, soundness, tranquility, perfection, fullness, rest, and harmony.

Take time to review your own goals and aspirations.

Breathe in and rest.

About Kelley

Kelley is a speaker, author, overseas aid worker and perpetual student. She is passionate about women and gender issues, both in the local and international context, which underpins her enthusiasm for kinwomen and its contribution to women ‘living their finest life’. In 2014 Kelley completed a Masters in International and Community Development before establishing The Foxglove Project. Foxglove is a registered charity focused on supporting international development projects that are sustainable and driven by indigenous leadership. Kelley’s paid work requires her to travel extensively to evaluate and support projects supported by Australian funds. This experience and networking enables Foxglove to partner with outstanding overseas agencies delivering real opportunities for the poor and vulnerable to lead independent self-determined lives. Kelley combines these passions with a love of family and faith. Across more than 30 years of marriage, Kelley and her husband have worked through many of the challenges of building a relationship while raising three sons. Their boys have now finished high school changing the dynamics of family life and relationships. One of her great joys is sharing parenting lessons and learning from good and bad (sometimes disastrous) experiences. She uses humour and common sense to talk about the everyday challenges facing parents in today’s context.
