Lucy Mills is a writer and editor based in the UK. She is a Christian and is married to a Baptist minister.

Her first book, ‘Forgetful heart: remembering God in a distracted world’ was published in April 2014 by Darton, Longman and Todd.

Forgetful Heart uses the language of remembering to ask questions about how our faith impacts our living. So much crowds in on us, that the things – and the people – we claim are most important get sidelined. But what does it mean to ‘remember’ God? Do we actively recall him in our daily lives? How can we get better at it? The book comes out of the author’s own tendency to forget and her longing to remember.


Lucy is on the editorial team of Magnet - an ecumenical Christian resources magazine specialising in colourful and meditative content.  She’s also on the committee of the Association of Christian Writers as Competitions’ Manager.

each day is its own

It’s been one of those days where I’ve struggled to do anything constructive at all. You know those? Yesterday was quite a good day – I did some future planning with a coffee in hand and felt quite positive after a morning’s work. I replied to some emails. I did some prep for Sunday. I tidied up an article I wrote a couple of weeks ago.  And then I had a nice evening out with friends.

Today – my goodness, I’ve been slow.

However, two magazines popped through my letter box, reminding me that I do get things done occasionally – on was the latest Christian Writer, which is the members’ magazine for the Association of Christian Writers, and one was the latest Christianity magazine.  

My writing features in both – you can read the Christianity piece online – looking at the value of spiritual disciplines in a technological age. 

The other piece was a Finding Inspiration column in which I extol the virtues of rest – and how this can help writers.

I’m beginning to think rest is a spiritual discipline these days. We rarely understand what true rest looks and feels like and even more rarely discipline ourselves to practise it.

Plus I discovered this lovely review of Forgetful Heart just at the moment I was feeling most useless – so that gave me a lift!

Each day comes with its own challenges, its own light and shade. There’s no point comparing them to one another…
