A Lovely Week

What a lovely week it's been! Totally freezing at work on Monday (and a bit moany cos I was so cold - sorry everyone!) But then the sun came out on MY Birthday - hip hip hooray! My son declared that I'm "definitely late 40's now, and very close to 50" but not even that dampened my day! Simon and I were both able to take the day off, so that made it even more special as we ate posh lunch together. Those of you in Church last Sunday morning will be as relieved as I was that we had "worked through" our disagreement well before my Birthday!

So there's been a lot af REAL activity (of course!) this week.
The programme is looking lovely, and we're making the final tweaks before it gets sent off to the printers.
Kerith Office is buzzing with REAL - related activity.
Lots of fantastic media bits are being created.
This morning I took my two REAL preaches to the Preach Planning meeting - so pleased to get good feedback and some great perspective and encouragement from the team.
Sue and I are particularly excited every time another woman books to come to REAL! We've had a good response to our request for sponsorships for single mums in Kerith - you'll never fully know the impact your financial gift will make in another life. What a blessing - to them and to you!
Look out for more info from me on this Sunday's Reveal film at Kerith.

To whet your appetite for REAL, why not make some time to watch and listen to Shauna. She spoke a couple of weekends ago at Willow, for their Mothers Day services. It's a great message ...and in only 4 WEEKS TIME we'll all be together at REAL!
Have a fab weekend - thank you God for the sunshine :)

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…
