Meet René

renebadenhorstWe would all like a little piece of heaven in our homes. That place of total peace, contentment and the feeling that life is making sense. We live in a broken world and life has its ups and downs. I don’t have all the answers. But, the more I surrender to God, the more I experience Heaven in my home.

Wherever you are in your life-journey, may these articles give you hope and inspiration, and bring a piece of Heaven to your home!


More about me:

I’m a freelance-journalist who lives in the northern suburbs of the beautiful Cape Town, South Africa. I’ve been writing for a Christian family magazine for the past 11 years. Since I met Jesus Christ it has been my passion to make a difference in other people’s lives. Being married to the love of my life and the parent of two lively children, I especially love to encourage others in the area of marriage and parenting.

I love nature, reading and travelling. After I finished a degree in Communication Studies my love for different cultures moved me to do an honours degree in Tourism Management. I also enjoyed doing various Biblical counselling courses.

After I finished my studies I served as a missionary in South Korea for two years, while earning my daily noodles teaching English.

My favourite Bible verse is Matthew 6:33: “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”
