Girls Just Want to have Fun

Posted by PicasaWe had a fun fun fun time on Saturday afternoon at the Sound of Music Singalong Movie!
Really great to meet lots of new women and also many visitors. We loved the popcorn, the hot drinks (on a cold snowy afternoon) and the ice creams. We loved sitting next to friends and singing along together. A few of us even shed a tear or two at times! We loved celebrating those women that had dressed up or brought along props. Like this postcard says - we just had fun!
I'm so grateful for the team that made the event happen - each of you who worked hard before, during and after the event knows that I couldn't have done it without you!!! Special thanks to both Colin and Kev - who worked really hard behind the scenes, with all the technical and all the practical components - I really appreciate them serving our event so happily - thanks guys!

We want to provide a variety of events for you all - because we women like variety and we don't all like the same things, just because we're women!  
So look out for future Simply events:
Saturday 10th March Simply Word and Worship 
Saturday 19th May : Simply Quiz

Just a thought - what are you doing that's FUN in your life at the moment? Who could you spend some fun time with?  I sometimes get so busy just doing (really good things!) that I realise I'm not meeting friends and having fun - in my experience, it needn't be expensive ,or elaborate, it just takes being intentional to plan and invite!
So, I'd like to hear what's fun for you and your friends?

Guest Blog: Esther in Indonesia

I'm delighted to welcome Esther Ross-Watson to my Blog today! She is a dearly loved member of our Kerith family. She and her late husband Michael served as missionaries for many years. Esther bravely made the decision to travel again, and she has recently returned from Indonesia. Here's her story:  Whilst Michael was on his last days on earth in August 2017 he received a request from the Island of Madura, Indonesia asking us to return to the town of Pamekasen, Madura, Indonesia where we had begun our Missions work in July 1973 exactly one year after we were married. They were keen to have us see what God had been doing in the years since we’d moved on and we excitedly said ‘Yes’ we will come!   Obviously that had to go on hold for a while because I didn’t feel I could, or even wanted to go alone! Anyway around March/April time 2018, I begun to feel a gentle nudging of the Holy Spirit urging me to think some more about it! It was like a feeling of wanting to know

3 Little Bottles

Thought I'd mix it up today and do something lighthearted here. I popped into town this morning (as an aside, anyone else still incredulous that "new Bracknell / The Lexicon is so great and that it's really here to stay?!)  Anyhow, I popped into town for a quick wander and bought 3 "essentials" I'd run out of, so I thought I'd share them with you - and of course I'd love to hear about your 3 recent essential purchases. 1 Contact lense solution I've worn glasses since Secondary school, and contact lenses since I left Uni. Gas permeables - great for me - slightly perilous in swimming pools / the sea / other people's sinks (£80 to replace). They work for me - and so a couple of bottles of solution each month keep me going.I ran out a couple of days ago, so it was £4.70 well spent for clean lenses and clear eyesight. 2. "Buffet" by The Ordinary This was a new one for me, a present I received last Christmas. I LOVE it and can

Meeting my Hero

Yesterday, I met one of my heroes! Bobbie Houston of Hillsong is a beautiful woman! I love her teachings, her godly wisdom, her self deprecating humour. I love the way she leads the whole Colour conference and Sisterhood movement. I listen to her podcasts and read her articles and books. Here at the Global Leadership Summit in Willow Creek,Chicago, her husband Brian gave the most extraordinary, vulnerable and honest responses to Bill Hybel's interview ( notes here) He was signing books at the end of the break and as I turned a corner, there she was! Not being mobbed by fans, but just chatting with a couple of people. Not sure if many of you realise this, but I'm actually an introvert, and quite shy. No really, I am! There's no way I would confidently walk up to someone I admire and begin a conversation! So I walked away. But as I was walking, I thought about how much I'd regret not being brave enough to say Hi..or to thank her for her
