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?

My friends from work absolutely LOVED it (as did I!) They couldn't believe how good value the evening was and have already given me suggestions to pass on for the next singalong - I think Dirty Dancing rated quite highly! I'll certainly be inviting them all back for the quiz.

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…

African sky

I'm writing this in the eerie light of Monday afternoon - anyone else noticed the yellow-tinged sky? I'm reliably informed (thanks Jake!) that the high winds are picking up dust particles from Liberia and North Africa, turning our sky a yellowish colour and definitely giving off an unusual atmosphere! Kind of intriguing too, as we are about to leave for a 10 day trip to Zambia this evening! We're flying overnight, and when we get there temperatures are high 90s - I have no idea how I'm going to cope with that at all...so I'm not even thinking about it right now! 
We'll stay a few days in Lusaka, visiting Sam and Hannah Fairs-Billam and their girls;  and Tehila, the charity they run, Then it's a 5 hour journey North to reconnect with the pastors and families in Serenje, and visit the Dormitory to meet the girls. 
Please do pray for us - safety and good health, pray for our families, pray that everywhere we go we take people up in their lift! (If like me you…

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…
