Willow day 2

830am
Apologies if you received my first willow blog 5 times - it was my first go at writing and sending the blog from my phone and I guess it was just too exciting for me and my phone :)
So we woke at 5...its a beautiful day here...simon did his usual fantastic job of driving us the 40 minute drive in...we met the rest of the team at Dr B's coffee shop at willow (where else?) For lattes (what else?!)...now the seats are saved and we are waiting for the 2nd day of the GLS to begin. The schedule is incredibly diverse. Really excited to hear the speakers and to listen out for what God will be whispering to me. Already feel challenged and refreshed.
Will update as we go today.

Amazing amazing session - introduced by my favourite author Shauna Niequist- Jeff Manion talking all about "the land between" - time in the desert fertile ground for complaining and sin but also for God to transform our hearts- v powerful. I seem to be close to tears most of the time at the moment.
Btw thanks Kunbi for tweeting this link "Willow creek video highlights here: www.willowcreek.com/events/leadership/2010/highlights2010.asp

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…
