5 Years Today

Today is our 5th wedding anniversary! I am so happy to have had these wonderful 5 years with Eric & even more happy that we still have so many more years ahead to enjoy our life together. I don't like assuming how long our life will be so I like to treasure each & every memory that we make together. Here are some of the highlights of the past 5 years:

Eric proposed to me & the girls - how sweet is that! Went to USA to visit my mom. Got married in a beautiful park in London. We had a wonderful honeymoon in Sardinia, Italy. I bought Eric his first pair of roller blades for his birthday & he roller bladed for the first time. We made our first snowman together.

Went on a paddle boat in Hyde Park together.
Moved from London to Cheltenham - that was an adventure. We climbed an indoor wall for the first time, I was a bit frightened but Eric went up & down in a matter of seconds. Bought our first car. We went camping in Oxwich, Eric's first time camping (also our last time we decided). We met my real granddad for the very first time - found out many interesting truths about my family's history. Started a youth group at our home with a crazy bunch of teenagers - they keep us young, we love them to bits.

Had our baby boy, Daniel, such a peaceful little one with big chocolate coloured eyes. Went on a bumper car together for the first time at the fair. Had a few Sushi parties. Played croquet for the first time. Had a holiday in Oxwich, this time in a chalet not a tent.
Went on a river boat in Stratford-upon-Avon.

Bought our first house which has three working wood fireplaces - something that we absolutely love. Many cold winters nights are spent around the fire place in the living room & sometimes we light the one in our bedroom. We also discovered that we both absolutely love gardening & have a beautiful garden that we spend many ours in. After a series of bad cars that kept on breaking down we bought a nearly new 7-seater car which we prayed for for two years. Still thanking God for this car today. Went for a long weekend in Snowdonia which was so lovely, it felt like a full holiday.

Planted King's Church. Had our baby girl, Amy, who is the cutest baby I have ever seen & brings us hours of joy (all times of the day & night) . Eric preached for the first time & I preached for the first time - very scary - lots of running to the loo with nervous tummies before ha ha. We did our first baptisms & so many other cool first time church things.


  1. This is so beautiful!
    All those beautiful memories :)
    U have a gorgeous family - God has blessed u and u r a blessing to others xxxxxxxxxxxx

  2. I am thinking of planning my highlights in advance this coming year. What I mean to say is that I am going to decide on some memories that I would like to make & would have like to see in next years highlights. That way I won't miss out on anything :) Sounds like a fun idea, what would you like to see if you were planning some highlights in advance?

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. Jill Chitty from the Entrepreneurs Circle spoke to the women in business offering practical tips for business growth. Other breakout sessions included a Hope for Justice talk by Naomi and Cynthia shared her testimony of life as a Samburu woman . Molly Catherine Beebee from Cirencester Creative Dance Academy dazzled us with

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
