Finding a Wise and Trusted Friend

Last week I wrote about Inspire, Unique's mentoring programme. We're currently signing women up for the next round of mentoring that runs from September 2009 to June 2010 . The closing date for applications to our next programme is 12th July. So if you want to be involved, then please fill in an application form, which you can download from the Inspire webpage.
I wrote about the older women teaching the younger women in my last blog (do you think you could be a mentor? If so, come and have a chat with me or with Caroline )

This time, let's hear from Rebecca about her perspective on being mentored in Inspire.

"My mentor and I did not know one another before we started meeting. We knew each other only by name and face. So we spent some of the time just getting to know each other. My mentor did quickly create an atmosphere for me to feel comfortable and safe in. She is an amazing listener and in most of our meetings allows me time to just talk and work through what I am thinking, feeling, and so on. I am the kind of person who needs to talk through my thoughts and my mentor lets me do this without interruption or giving me answers. There were no expectations on how the mentoring time should go or look and so our time together is tailored to what I need which I appreciate so much. Our time together also provides support from a sister in Christ - whose purpose in mentoring me is to support me, love me and help me grow in Christ. I would definitely recommend being mentored to anybody who is interested!"

I Have Decided To Follow Jesus, No Turning Back

I have decided to follow Jesus...no turning back.Take a listen to this beautiful song from Hillsong - every time I hear these words and sing along it changes my perspective, turns me around, gets my focus off me and onto Jesus - "Christ Is Enough For Me". ...No turning back, I've been set free...Christ is enough for me.

Discover your Worth, your Strength, your Purpose

Following a successful Kerith launch in the Spring, Sarah Farley and her team are ready to go again,leading their 2nd SHINE course.
SHINE is an eight week self esteem course for women. The evenings are a mixture of Talks and discussion time, with a practical approach to learning. It's a really encouraging environment, and the evenings are a lot of fun. The course starts this Tuesday evening, and there are still some spaces available.Here's your personal invite from Sarah!Shine is about to run again and I'm excited to see what God is going to do this time round. If you haven't already heard, Shine is a course designed for women who want to live their life in abundance, the way God designed them to live it. To recognise all their worth, to grow in self-esteem, to see all their strengths and positives and ultimately live a life of purpose.We've still got a few places left so if you're interested there's more information here on the Kerith website, where you can…

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 …
