Unique's book club Activate are meeting again this Saturday evening. Exciting news is that the book club has been growing, so there will now be three venues and hosts. Check out Activate on the website for details about the locations of the new venues, the book being read and how to contact Ope who leads Activate. For those who want to get ahead, the next book will be "Get Out of That Pit!" by Beth Moore.

I love reading , and have always got a variety of books on the go. I wasn't expecting any books for Christmas, so I bought myself a present (!) it's a very challenging book called "Boundaries" by Henry Cloud. Think it's going to be a bit of a landmark book - watch this space!

So, what are you reading at the moment? x

'Get Out Of That Pit' is an outstanding book. Solid biblically and downright practical & encouraging while giving a swift 'kick' where needed. Love it and love how Beth Moore brings incredible insight into areas of life where women in particular struggle. Great stuff! :0)

I've just starting reading 'All I need is Jesus and a good pair of Jeans' by Susanna Foth Aughtmon. It is recommended by Mark Batterson. I have only read the first 2 chapters but already absolutely love it! It grabbed me from the word go - a very frank insight into one lady's life. It has a sub-title of 'the tired supergirls' search for grace'. Says it all really - a window into the life of one very honest woman - her failings and frequent shortcomings as a wife, mother, friend and christian. Reassurance that we are all normal! Love it...

African sky

I'm writing this in the eerie light of Monday afternoon - anyone else noticed the yellow-tinged sky? I'm reliably informed (thanks Jake!) that the high winds are picking up dust particles from Liberia and North Africa, turning our sky a yellowish colour and definitely giving off an unusual atmosphere! Kind of intriguing too, as we are about to leave for a 10 day trip to Zambia this evening! We're flying overnight, and when we get there temperatures are high 90s - I have no idea how I'm going to cope with that at I'm not even thinking about it right now! 
We'll stay a few days in Lusaka, visiting Sam and Hannah Fairs-Billam and their girls;  and Tehila, the charity they run, Then it's a 5 hour journey North to reconnect with the pastors and families in Serenje, and visit the Dormitory to meet the girls. 
Please do pray for us - safety and good health, pray for our families, pray that everywhere we go we take people up in their lift! (If like me you…

Not the Summer I'd Planned

"Life's detours means  God wants you to run right into His arms  so He can reconstruct your heart"  Ann Voskamp
Well, let's just say that it's not been the summer I thought I was going to have!!! 
I'm so grateful we had our relaxing holiday in the sunshine
I'm so grateful it's summer time, and therefore not so many work commitments
I'm so grateful for my family being around
I'm so grateful for a wonderful and kind church family

If I was going to have an accident slip over on the back door my wedges...feeding the dogs.. and dislocate and fracture my ankle...then I'm so glad I was at home with family around and with access to swift expert medical help.

The accident was so sudden and it was immediately obvious that I couldn't sort it on my own! I'm pretty squeamish so I'll save you the details, but the angle of my foot prompted me to say out loud "I've just done something really bad".

Funny isn't it, when yo…

It's been a while

So, I've been gone a while....and  I've been wondering about launching a new blog - perhaps a new look,a new blog, a totally new start? In the wondering I've done nothing, so instead, I'm just going to pick it up again, and start writing.... 
So this week I had the privilege of spending time with some Prayer warriors in the Kerith Prayer room. We gathered to pray for the upcoming Mission Trips to Albania and Macedonia.  - They did me such good, as they shared what God had been saying to them in their own prayer times - words of encouragement that He will bring restoration of relationships; He will bring healing ; there will be lots of new people who haven't been to UNIKE before; there'll be a fresh move of the Holy Spirit; somethingnewandmoreis going to happen this year; He is going to take things to another level. You can imagine how excited I was to hear these whispers from God - join me in a moment's prayer right now, that we'll see Him work?
It's …
