Welcome to Tarella Spirituality. Here you will read my musings and reflections as I try to find the God dimension in  everyday  issues, relationships and experiences.

If you are  not comfortable with the ‘church-speak’ of organized religion or miss Australian imagery in the way Christian faith is expressed or searching for words that recognise the feminine in your spirituality, then simply enter your email address in the box to the right on this page and you will receive an email alert every time I write a new post.

I look forward to your company,
