Lindsey in Haiti

I've been to Zambia with Lindsey Reece-Smith on two occasions . She was fantastic - never tired of my ridiculous questions or our preoccupation with "what's for dinner?". Especially that first trip - first time in Africa - she helped me to begin to process how we (in the UK) can respond to, and have  an ongoing relationship with our sisters and brothers in Zambia. It's a world away - and yet it's a day's travel away. The women live such very different lives - and yet we connected in so many ways, both deep and frivolous. Walking into a mud hut in the village to see a dressing table with a mirror and lipstick; shoes and hats displayed spoke volumes to me about how women are the SAME the world over!
Lindsey really helped me to process the intense experiences.

Lindsey is part of our church community at Kerith, and she is living and working in Haiti for the next two months.She is a fantastic woman - she is so very capable, and so if anyone will cope with living in Haiti , it's Lindsey!
So I'm writing to ask you to please take a few minutes to subscribe to her blog for regular updates - so that we keep remembering the people in Haiti who have suffered and lost so much; and so that we can pray for Lindsey and the others from Tearfund and the other relief agencies working out there. 
It's easy, just log on to her blog here and then sign up to receive it by email, by entering your email address. It will greatly encourage her to know that we are not forgetting her - and especially that we are praying for her. Thank you x

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…

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 ...to slip over on the back door mat....in 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…
