Everywoman’s 20th Anniversary has given me pause to stop and reflect upon my own 30+ years journey with Jesus, and I have to concede, for someone who likes to strategise a fast 5 step plan to reach her desired destination, I seem to have chosen a rather scenic route, stopped off for a number of unscheduled pits stops and completely missed a few destiny stops along the way!Read More
Through grief stricken prayer I cried out to Jesus, ‘where were you when I needed you the most?’ He heard me, and he showed me. In that moment I relived the attack but this time I saw Jesus standing there. He didn't close His eyes, He didn’t turn away, it wasn't too ugly for Him to see, He was in the alleyway weeping for His daughter. Then there, in the very same spot where so much pain had been caused, I knelt down and finally let myself mourn. I laid down the bouquet of white tulips, as if standing at a grave and then walked away.Read More
Every Spring, when it comes time to gather as Everywoman again, I can’t help but be filled with so much joy as I watch the forecourt of Oxford Falls filling up with women of every generation. I love seeing those that are gathering with their Mum’s, Nan’s, Daughters and Granddaughters as we venture together on a beautiful weekend once more. It’s a precious time to hit ‘pause’ on our overflowing schedules and get away together.Read More
Everywoman Gathering is about moments. Twenty years of moments.
Moments that transport us. Moments of salvation, healing and liberty.
Moments of revelation and impartation. Moments that propel us forward.
While I lost my husband, my marriage, some friends, and a whole lot of unnecessary superficial stuff, I have gained a new perspective on life, a far deeper relationship with God and a fulfilling social life with loyal friends and family. I embrace it all and recognise that life is a journey… I try to enjoy each day for what it is along the way… Giving Glory to God for good things, relying on His grace for my shortcomings, and trying to encourage others along the way.Read More
As we see who HE is, we become who WE are. As we walk in obedient relationship with Jesus, as we grow IN HIM, our royal status is revealed. We serve a Heavenly King. Not only a King. But THE KING OF ALL KINGS!Read More
The dream of children was always on my radar, even as a little girl. My husband and I married quite young so waited a while before trying for children. Once we began trying to conceive the excitement was so great for me. The day I dreamed of would soon be here.Read More
What could be better than a shopping spree?! A shopping spree when you’ve been given a sizeable gift card, of course! Ahhh the freedom, the unrestriction, the joy when everything has already been paid for and you don’t have to add up all those purchases.Read More
Over the past 10 years I have often been asked this question: “how do you balance it all?”. Their reference I guess was life! Marriage, career, Church life, leadership responsibilities, kids, family, the list goes on. But if I am honest this question always irritated me and I found myself frustrated that I couldn't provide an articulate answer.Read More
As a full time artist I have recently been challenged with the reality of living in the world but not of the world. I was a finalist in the 2016 Archibald Prize at the Art Gallery of NSW. I painted actor and comedian Garry McDonald and portrayed his more vulnerable side.Read More
I have recently emerged from a season of prayer and seeking God with a new mandate on my life. For myself and for the many women I have the honour of ministering to. It begins with this simple truth, which is carried on God's heart for us. That we are called to cultivate a beautiful mind.Read More
In February 2016 at the age of 20, I departed my home in Perth to move to Sydney. I NEVER thought I would leave home, like ever. I had told my mum that when I grew up, I’d live next door to her and adopt 12 babies from Africa (and not be married, because boy germs ugh). So apart from “never say never”, here are some things I have learnt in my 2 years away from home.Read More
