Seizing the last of Summer

The alarm went off early this morning - back to school for me! The children go back tomorrow, so I guess that signifies the end of summer and the start of routine again. I love the summer. I love open doors and windows, eating outdoors, the warmth of the sun on my face and shoulders.

I know some of you love Autumn...I like making soup and watching Strictly Come Dancing...but that's about it for chilly old- it's- only- getting - colder - and - darker Autumn and winter. Summer's where it's at for me, and I reluctantly let it slip and leave...so I was cheered to read Ann Voskamp's blog where she spoke about planning a few simple activities to seize the last of the summer. I printed out her list, and we straightaway made plans...then we added a few of our own. Here's what we've already done- its been lovely, and special, and memorable. We can't stop time, but we can stop and enjoy the moments. What would be on your list?

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…

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?
