We're All Older Women (Word and Worship recap)


Yesterday I wrote about how busy the previous week had been (and by the way, here's a short highlights video of the HTB conference which I think you'll enjoy!)

So please indulge me hopping back a whole 9 days to the Word and Worship Brunch on 11th May!

We had a fabulous time together - delicious bacon rolls and fruit pots (yum!) wonderful worship and so many great people making it all happen - thank you to everyone who came, and everyone who served us.I so appreciate you all.
I loved speaking,and bringing the Word - its always a privilege. It's also always nerve-wracking and takes a lot of time to prepare, but its a real privilege to do so. I thank God that He gave me something to speak about, that will help us all live lives that glorify Him.

My talk is now up on the Kerith website, and you can listen again here

Teaching from Titus 2, my aim was to encourage us to see that we are all both older and younger women to each other.
Older women, (and that's all of us, OK?!) - the phrase "teaching what is good" refers to informal teaching by lifestyle - that's sharing our lives, our hearts and homes with others as we model a godly lifestyle.
So the challenge is: Are we living a life worth imitating? and Are we sharing our lives with younger women?

Younger women - are you actively looking for mentors?
Don't imagine that one woman will be all that you need. Look for someone who is great with money, another who is great at her job, watch how another woman loves her husband, or manages her home, how another raises her children, and how another serves God.

We need each other, we can impact wisdom and learn from each other.
Each of us extending a helping hand up and down the generations.

"Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path" Psalm 119

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…

It's been a while

So, I've been gone a while....and  I've been wondering about launching a new blog - perhaps a new look,a new blog, a totally new start? In the wondering I've done nothing, so instead, I'm just going to pick it up again, and start writing.... 
So this week I had the privilege of spending time with some Prayer warriors in the Kerith Prayer room. We gathered to pray for the upcoming Mission Trips to Albania and Macedonia.  - They did me such good, as they shared what God had been saying to them in their own prayer times - words of encouragement that He will bring restoration of relationships; He will bring healing ; there will be lots of new people who haven't been to UNIKE before; there'll be a fresh move of the Holy Spirit; somethingnewandmoreis going to happen this year; He is going to take things to another level. You can imagine how excited I was to hear these whispers from God - join me in a moment's prayer right now, that we'll see Him work?
It's …
