"Leadership is Influence"

Wow, this is it - the first week back into the routine of work! Well I say that, 2 are back at work; 1 is back at college...and the other 2 still have 2 days at home until they go back on Monday hoorah! So the pace at home has picked up a bit - and I remember again what it is to set an alarm, and to be tired of an evening! This afternoon I'm doing a new thing - leading a couple of sessions on the Kerith Academy. I'm really excited to be involved in this new venture. Really passionate about my subject. And really quite apprehensive...but I'm always like this...and it will be ok once I start! So can you guess this afternoon's topic from the picture above? Yep, been doing a  lot of reading these last couple of weeks! The session's on Leadership - leading others; leading up and leading yourself. Wow, there's a lot of wisdom out there - really practical stuff based on Biblical principles.
Fresh from Willow...and thinking about our own GLS in a few weeks time, I know I'll be "preaching it to myself" this afternoon (and hopefully the students!). My friend's an adult tutor - her top tip to me? cookies :)

“When you were made a leader, you weren’t given a crown, you were given a responsibility to bring out the best in others" Jack Welch
“Good leadership is a channel of water controlled by God; He directs it to whatever end He chooses” Prov 21 v 1(Message)

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…
