Be A Change Agent ... Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway... Who Cares What People Think!

Today I have some random thoughts to share with you. They are a combination of Eric's message yesterday, Holly Wagner's God Chicks* and a recent message from The Vine**.

Yesterday's message was really powerful, we have to realise that we are 21st century women for a purpose! I love technology and all the things we can do these days and all the people we can keep in touch with - it's really fun to be able to do so much! But we have to remember that we were born in this time to be a CHANGE AGENT . I am not here only to enjoy all the benefits of being alive in 2009 but also to actively use all these tools to make a difference. Too often I hear excuses from people for doing nothing! Two of these excuses are fear and people's opinions.

"Feel the fear and do it anyway! It's not that the warrior princess is's just that she keeps on going. Every person who ever did anything amazing started out just a bit afraid, it is always a risk to try something new. By letting fear contain me, it not only limits me - but it could very well hurt others. We need to take the focus off ourselves and be the warriors for a world that so desperately needs to see courage in action." *

"Until you quit agreeing with those who've mistreated you, or bowing to the events that crippled you emotionally, you'll remain locked in a prison of your own making. When your critic's opinion becomes your opinion, you've built a prison inside your soul with only one prisoner; you. Are you prepared to accept that some of the people you've spent your life trying to impress, may never be impressed and can you accept that from God's perspective; it doesn't matter? To succeed in life you must be able to work alongside people without allowing yourself to be controlled by their moods or governed by their opinions." **

So come on girls, let us be a change agent ... feel the fear and do it anyway... who cares what people think! Get started, leave a comment about what you are going to do, it will be great to share ideas and see what we are all doing to make a difference in our world. 



  1. I really related to this article on Be A Change Agent, Feel the Fear and do it anyway
    I have been having some problems at the School where my daughters attend with another mother
    She is Russian so a different culture but this cannot excuse her mistreatment of me
    She refuses to allow her daughter,( who is my daughter's best friend) to come to our house and play or my daughter to go to her house and play
    She is prepared to do this when my ex-husband has the children and gets on well with him
    This is very hurtful to both me and my daughter and gets worse when I walk right across the playground to ask her one more time to please my daughter only to feel humiliated by her "No" again
    She speaks to the other mums but not me and seems to think I have been saying
    "ugly things" about her, ( her words)
    I have felt crippled by this but after reading the article I am determined not to be controlled by what she thinks of me anymore
    God sees me differently and His opinion is the most important one
    Give me strength Lord as I see this lady every day to rise up and walk with my head held high in the knowledge that you love me and accept me just the way I am

Saved by grace, a new creation, on purpose for a purpose. I am free with a future and a hope!

I've considered deleting this blog many times but can't seem to let it go for some reason. Perhaps because it contains such an important part of my life and I'm hoping that somehow my 'scribblings' can inspire and help others going through some of the things I've been through. So, I continue to hold onto it for a little longer. Tonight, 31st December 2021, I reflect on not only the year that has passed but the many years before that too. I love to look back and reflect before plotting the way forwards into a new year. So I've pulled out all my journals and as I flip through the pages I am in awe of how far I have come.  Only today I found myself chatting with Jordan about the importance of not comparing ourselves with others but without past self, and as I look back I am amazed and how far I have come. I can't help but go back to that day. The day that I hit rock bottom. I had been a Christian for 10 years at that point and yet still found myself on the

Conference Feedback

We had a beautiful day together on 8th September, thank you so much to you all for your incredible support and prayers. Feedback and testimonies have already started flooding in, have a read of some of them here . Also, keep an eye on our YouTube page as we update it with the speakers messages and conference highlight videos. We had the stunning Instruments of Praise gospel choir lead us in worship and it was truly heavenly. We also had Daughters of Davis who absolutely blew us away with their fantastic acoustic folk/soul vibe. Our Women in Business section was a real treat with stalls offering all sorts of beautifully displayed goods.

Daniel Fast - Odours, Tiredness and Pains

These are some of what can occur during a fast but don't be alarmed, it is only worse case scenario.  Many people don't go through all of this so don't worry.  This info is merely so that you understand what is happening in your body and that you don't become concerned if some of these symptoms present themselves. Odours, tiredness, dizziness, headaches and other pains - these are some of the things that you will face during your fast.  As you continue to fast you body will begin to cleanse itself and eliminate toxins.  These toxins will come out of your body wherever they can which will mean that you might sweat more and your sweat will have a stronger smell than usual.  You breath will also be stronger than usual and so will you urine smell.  You may even get a funny taste in your mouth or feel that your tongue has a thick coat on it.  It sounds nasty, but for a while you will face unpleasant odours from your body, so brush well with a natural toothpaste (as you don
