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

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 …
