The Last Time I Fell In Love by Anna Radosh

Last October, I fell in love with…

Each time as a woman, I knew that if I had said something, it would have looked as if I was the woman waving her hand whining about her situation so at first, I did not say anything at all. Enough is enough. When we don’t say anything…

Who do you stand up for

Why should we step up against acts of injustice? Why can’t we just live our own lives in peace? Do our voices count? Does standing up make a difference? If I call myself a Jesus follower, then I must…

One of the leaders of the Newbold Church Walkers group, Veselinka Becejac, shares one of her recent experiences where she felt God demonstrate His care once again… “Every day as a Christian is an exciting new experience for me.” On Saturday, 7th August 2016, our Newbold Church Walkers group began our 5 mile walk in…

  “Love will prevail!” – This is so much easier to say than put into action. In light of recent events, I have been considering that despite us saying that we are all about charity, equal rights or loving unconditionally, we do not actually do what we say. We do not put our words into…

A Prayer For Nice

A prayer from our Sisterhood member, Gil Senty, who lives in the south of France… Dear Lord, We live in a world that is dying. So many people have lost sight of you. Such terrible things are happening. Today we pray for the people of Nice. We can’t believe how people can feel they have…

Not all the tears that we cry are lost. I believe that someone hears. Nine months ago, I cried a lot. I was distressed that my daughter was being asked to leave a private school she had been attending for 4 years. During this time, God had come through for us financially. So, why was…

how to get the peace you are looking for

Don’t you just love those people who buy very noisy and annoying toys for your children? I am one of them! I am one of them because I don’t have children of my own and, at the end of the day, I just want to be their fun aunt. Recently, when my nephew came to…

5 lessons learnt from being a leader of The Newbold Sisterhood

In late 2015, The Newbold Sisterhood celebrated the fifth year of our women’s conference, ‘Our Story Our Song’ and the beginning of The Newbold Sisterhood itself. Here are 5 things that I’ve learnt in the past 5 years as leader of The Newbold Sisterhood which I hope will resonate for you in the coming year: 1. There…

Our Wonderful Merciful Saviour All Powerful One Our Father Full of love and who is the main source of Peace. We praise you and give you the glory for all the great things that you have done. We thank you for the peaceful surroundings that we can worship you in. We humbly come to you…

Sometimes it seems to take very little for a family to break down – it might start in the form of an argument, a misunderstanding, or even a justified reason of never to speak to a person once very dear to you. I have also noticed that after we might have already forgiven the dear one who had previously…

I must admit that there have been days in the past month when I did not want to step out of my house. Have you had days like that? When the only thing you can do is just to do the next thing that needs doing and then the thing after that… My friend, J,…

Spring 2015

Dear Spring You beautifully voice your greetings as you come in The sight of you brightens our day The daffodils announce your arrival You are a true gift. But I want to know, who orders your steps? How did you know to come now? Right now when I needed you the most? Your warmth is…

new beginnings

Over the last few years, I have suppressed the thought of living in a new home, with new furniture, and have felt completely out league to utter the statement, “My house needs a total makeover!” Can anyone relate to this? This feeling that your current condition or problem – whether it be health, financial, marital,…

magictrickthatwentwrong

In November, 1820, a Polish magician couple named DeLinksy were performing a Gun Trick in Arnstadt, Germany, for Prince Shwarzenberg-Sonderhausen. The Gun Trick is one of the most dangerous magic tricks. The magician pretends to be shot by a gun and gives the illusion that they either will stop or catch the bullet with their…

Small Acts of Love

My father was never good at remembering anniversaries. Women’s Day in March was no different. The day would come and he would just get on with his work. My 7 year old brother, on the other hand, was well prepared for this day. He had saved his pocket money in order for him to be…

When You Don't Feel Strong Enough

Earlier this year, at the beginning of 2015, when the content editors, Anna Radosh and Judith Nyirenda, and I were planning out this blog’s content calendar, we came about with a main theme – “Stronger Together” – and then we broke it down even further into 12 sub-themes: 1. A Strong Woman… seeks strength from…

happymothersday

I grew up loving my father much more than my Mother. I felt that Dad understood me, even my four siblings felt the same (Please note that my reference to my siblings excludes my twelve half brothers and sisters), but it all changed days before I got married. I came to England when I was…

Have you seen the movie Fireproof? If you haven’t had the chance to watch it, do try your best to so. Let me give you a snapshot on what happens. A husband, who is a fireman (hence, the reference to the name of the movie!), is mean to his wife. His wife has tried what…

My Uncle Janusz was my Dad’s only sibling. He did not have his own children, and my brother and I were the only children in his life. Our best summer holidays were spent on his farm in the countryside. My uncle had the special gift of making every person feel very special. When we came…

I used to go from believing that God loves me to not being quite so sure how he could love me as an individual. There’s just too much going on in my life for Him to love me. These days, I believe I might have learnt the difference. When I wake up and plan my…

I really dislike New Year’s resolutions. Do we really need to wait till the beginning of each year to make them and how long will they actually last?

New Year’s resolutions are common at this time of the year. For some of us, it feels refreshing to have a clean new slate of a year to begin with. Apparently, only 8% of New Year’s resolutions are kept. Whatever your resolution might be in 2015, Judith Nyirenda shares five ways she will be motivated to keep her resolutions this year and hopefully they will help you too!
