All through my life I have enjoyed creating spaces and opportunities for myself and others to draw aside and meet with God. This has taken many shapes over the years: from playing church with my sister as a child, to setting up a youth group in the church porch when I was 13; to being Prayer Secretary at the Christian Union in my Uni days, to my 12 years as a church based Youth Worker. The last 15 years have found me alongside my husband in rural Parish ministry, where I have been involved with children’s, youth and adult ministries. It has been a challenge and a joy, over the years, working creatively to find ways to help others to meaningfully meet with God.
Having degrees in both English Literature and Applied Theology, and with a creative heart, Faith in the Unfolding finds it’s home in my love of words, ideas, the things of God and creative expression. Perhaps a little oddly, as a lover of words and ideas, I am also a contemplative at heart, drawn to silence and ’emptiness’ too. I find strength and inspiration from long walks out across the fields where His voice seems to find me in ways it doesn’t elsewhere. Faith in the Unfolding echoes this appreciation of stillness and nature as a way of hearing His voice. It is my prayer that it will be an open, spacious, gentle, reflective, meaningful retreat ministry, helping us meet with God along life’s way.
I am a mum of two delightful children (I am of course biased) and my husband is a Vicar in the Church of England and we share our home in beautiful Norfolk with our dear cat Chester.
