Younger Women

Wow, what a Sunday we had last weekend! So amazing to hear 10 talks by the 10:10 preachers - all up and coming, many young.It was so humbling to watch and learn from others. So fantastic to hear God's heart for us through each of them. I listened to all 10..and it was exhausting just listening, being challenged and writing down the applications!
So, I prayed for a women straight after the 11 meeting thanks to Beccy's encouragement to pray straightaway. Then on Tuesday I prayed for one of my children to enlarge their faith  - and Wednesday saw a real answer to that prayer.
All of the talks are available on the Kerith website. They are all the kind of length you can listen to whilst chopping carrots, washing up , having a coffee break or taking a car journey - so have a listen God will speak to you.....then PRAY!

I had the privilege of helping one of the teenage girls prepare for her preach - and was so proud of her. We must hear from the young women. We must let the young women know that Real 2011 is for them. We must be those "older women" who live lives that others will want to follow.We are all an "older woman" to a "younger woman". (And we're all a younger woman to an older woman) We're always learning, always following.
Ok, so I know I am biased, but I'm so proud of our beautiful daughter Alice. She always gives 100% to what she is doing and I love that in her! She has her own blog, and (with her permission) I want you to read it too  Alice's Blog
God bless the young girls and young women amongst us as they live their lives; as they follow Jesus. Remember they are watching you (and me) , older women!

Hi Catrina. I just wanted to say that I have read a few of Alice's blog posts as she puts them on facebook. I am totally amazed by the depth of maturity and honesty that shines through....what a great example she is to younger girls. You have done a fantastic job in bringing up such a lovely girl, full of the grace of God.xx

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…
