We Are Here For You

Excited as I was last month at the continued growth of the blog, I was even more thrilled yesterday to realise we had broken our monthly views figure again in August. With a day to spare, no less. Yes, 14,000 of you clicked the view button on a FracturedFaithBlog post. Or maybe 7 of you did it 2000 times each. Either way we are very grateful for your continued support of what we do. There have been some ups and downs so thanks for sticking with us.

We will continue to keep the blog running as long as you want it. While, yes I’m an author and use this platform to promote my writing, the primary purpose for existing is to provide a message of HOPE to those of you feeling HOPELESS. Less than three years ago that’s how I felt. Yet, through the grace of God and a loving family, I crawled back out of the abyss into the land of the living.

You might not believe in God, you might be unsure, you might want nothing to do with him even if you do think there’s something to it all. But whatever your belief system there is still HOPE. What’s more, it’s free and in unlimited supply. I’ll not sugarcoat the pill. There will still be crappy days and any of those happy clappy, ‘perfect’ Christians who tell you otherwise are liars. Which makes them less than perfect after all.

But, rain or shine, we will keep posting a message of HOPE. Realistic HOPE. This blog is for Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, Atheists, Agnostics, Gay, Straight, Black, White, Abled Bodied, Disabled and everything in between and beyond. If you comment every day or are an occasional visitor you are welcome. It takes a lot to ruffle our feathers or shock us. We’ve been around the block once or twice.

Thank you and keep clicking that view button.

We are Stephen and Fionnuala and this is our story. We live in Northern Ireland, have been married for 15 years and have three kids - Adam, Hannah and Rebecca. We hope that our story will inspire and encourage others. We have walked a rocky road yet here we are today, together and stronger than ever. We are far from perfect and our faith has been battered and bruised. But an untested faith is a pointless faith. Just as a fractured faith is better than none at all. We hope you enjoy the blog.

  1. You do good work Stephen. Thank you for continuing to produce helpful, hopeful, meaningful content in ways that entertain, educate and call us to action. I do appreciate your transparency in sharing the struggles and joys of your journey. It is great the way you acknowledge Fionnuala and others who help. I have a feeling there are a lot levers to be pulled and buttons to be pushed behind the curtain to make this such a successful blog. Well done!

  2. You are a loving example of how to write, share, provoke thought and compassion. I love that your family participates, and it’s pretty dang awesome to be part of your blog family.

  3. Glad you are continuing to blog. I enjoy reading it. Love your description of a “happy, clappy” Christian. My Christian faith is my rock, but I have met a few of those “happy, clappy” Christians and I think they are a big reason why many have rejected the church.
