Earlybirds

After a really lovely chilled out break over Easter...tonight I've got that "school in the morning" feeling - for me and the kids (even though they went in today - and survived the early morning!). Packed lunches are ready; think I know what I'm wearing; my "porridge-in-the-travel-mug" is even ready to go. So after this it's off to sleep for me (thankfully Simon and no 2 son are taking Nemo for his before-bed walk :) too)


Just wanted to thank all you "earlybirds" out there for the great response on Sunday to Real. 
It's so exciting to see the growing list of women attending . So, if you intended to book up, come on and do it! Remember that the earlybird rate lasts until May 3rd. And if you need some help in coming to the Conference, please let someone else know so that together we can love and care for one another.


By the way, when I say that Easter was a chilled out break it was, as in no work - but oh boy I cracked on with the conference and had some great and strategic conversations (and walks in the woods; and coffees) with others who will contribute to the day. It's the together bit that's fun when planning an event, and I love being part of this team.


Bless you as you sleep; and bless you as you wake and work and live - may you see God in everything x


You're blessed when you get your inside world—your mind and heart—put right. Then you can see God in the outside world Matt 5:8

Guest Blog: Esther in Indonesia

I'm delighted to welcome Esther Ross-Watson to my Blog today! She is a dearly loved member of our Kerith family. She and her late husband Michael served as missionaries for many years. Esther bravely made the decision to travel again, and she has recently returned from Indonesia. Here's her story: 

Whilst Michael was on his last days on earth in August 2017 he received a request from the Island of Madura, Indonesia asking us to return to the town of Pamekasen, Madura, Indonesia where we had begun our Missions work in July 1973 exactly one year after we were married. They were keen to have us see what God had been doing in the years since we’d moved on and we excitedly said ‘Yes’ we will come!Obviously that had to go on hold for a while because I didn’t feel I could, or even wanted to go alone!
Anyway around March/April time 2018, I begun to feel a gentle nudging of the Holy Spirit urging me to think some more about it! It was like a feeling of wanting to know for myself what had …

3 Little Bottles

Thought I'd mix it up today and do something lighthearted here.

I popped into town this morning (as an aside, anyone else still incredulous that "new Bracknell / The Lexicon is so great and that it's really here to stay?!) 
Anyhow, I popped into town for a quick wander and bought 3 "essentials" I'd run out of, so I thought I'd share them with you - and of course I'd love to hear about your 3 recent essential purchases.



1 Contact lense solution
I've worn glasses since Secondary school, and contact lenses since I left Uni. Gas permeables - great for me - slightly perilous in swimming pools / the sea / other people's sinks (£80 to replace). They work for me - and so a couple of bottles of solution each month keep me going.I ran out a couple of days ago, so it was £4.70 well spent for clean lenses and clear eyesight.

2. "Buffet" by The Ordinary
This was a new one for me, a present I received last Christmas. I LOVE it and can't recommend i…

Our Living Hope

Not sure what happens with my blog...or me writing my blog! Can't believe I've been away from it for almost two months. Oh well, no condemnation! Let's pick it up and start again :)
Yesterday was a great day in Church! I was so challenged and encouraged - I love Sundays and all the different ways God shows His love and who he is to us. Natalie Jones preached at both our morning meetings in Bracknell , she gave such a good message on generosity, be sure to catch it when the podcast comes on our website, but for now, watch a summary of Natalie's preach
At the 6pm meeting, we had Paul Manwaring sharing about culture : the 4 Gamechangers - again, a really challenging message to check out if you didn't get to hear it live.

I wore my HOPE earrings yesterday - sometimes I deliberately choose to wear them as a practical symbol that I am choosing HOPE - that I choose Jesus, I choose trust, I choose hope.
I'm so glad I did, as throughout the day I felt God speak to me about …
