312 Women in Bracknell for the REAL Conference

So exciting to see that women are still booking in for the REAL Conference this Friday evening and all day Saturday - it's not too late to come and join us http://www.kerith.co.uk/Publisher/Article.aspx?ID=200612

We're busy busy busy preparing for you all - bring it on!

Last night I had the privilege of meeting up with Donika, Ornela, Valentina and Bardha from Albania and Marija from Macedonia who have all come over for the Conference. We were also joined by Mrs Leah Mutala who is our key contact in Serenje Zambia. We had a great time getting to know one another- realising that women (and children/teenagers it seems!) are the same the whole world round. We didn't get to talking about husbands...maybe next time?!

It's so exciting to hear their stories of what God is doing in their lives and their Churches. I've been thinking about the theme of the conference being "Real" - that we'd live authentic lives of faith, allowing God into every area of our lives - and they are doing just that. Two of the girls told us some of their story of growing up and being a teenager in a communist country - they started their Church when they were 18 and 21, and Albania had just become independent. Come and talk to them at the Conference - you will be blessed and encouraged - and I know that they will too! (their English is great!)

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…
