The Heart Behind SHE LEADS

I believe we all labour under the weight of words spoken over us; sometimes, words have come at us with great force, while other times, as a whisper. Nevertheless, we’ve all been dealt with words that we must contend with.

It doesn't matter how experienced you are at life or how many years you have up your cutesleeve - the truth is that each and every "new season" (and each and every invitation to soar to new heights) demands of us afresh ... it demands new devotion, new faith, new boldness and new realms of faithfulness.

Love in Full Flight

In 2014 the news of the Yazidi people stranded on top of Mount Sinjar in the wake of ISIS reached me and I was struck to the core. As a young mother I couldn't help but imagine myself in the shoes of the mothers fleeing with their little ones and the atrocities they were experiencing.

With every hour that passed as we were driving, the environment around us changed drastically. Our eyes were truly opened to the diversity, greatness and creativity of God!

Have you ever wondered why the promise land was won by a group of people, slowly walking around the walls of Jericho? In Joshua 6 we find the account of the people of Israel finally taking the promise land and it wasn’t by war or battle, it was won by worship and walking. I thought this was so unusual until God showed me the powerful disciplines that the Israelites learnt in the slow walk of the wilderness.

The Devil Wears Fast Fashion

Love in action does not look like buying into the production of fast fashion when you are aware of the impacts it has on garment workers and communities, not just in the third world. We have choice. We have the freedom to choose between endless products. We drive the consumer demand of products and our shopping habits determine the future of fashion trade.
