Passion & Purity - Introduction

It's that time again - time for the much awaited release of my next book, Passion & Purity.  I say much awaited because I already have pre-orders lined up ready for the official June release.  This is the third book in the three part series and my wonderful friends who have proof read say it's the best of the three - the cherry on top of the cake.  Personally, I found this book the hardest to write and I really didn't want to release it.

Never-the-less, I have put my pride in my pocked and am going to share it with you despite my fears.  So here goes... the very first pages of the Introduction.

For obvious reasons, I really didn’t want to write this book and I dreaded the thought of publishing it! The Loving Life Series has been a series of three books covering my story but the part of the story that I focus on in this book is very difficult to admit to. Never-the-less, I knew I could not avoid writing it!

Philippians 2:4-7
Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation...

In writing my story I chose to lay down my reputation for the interest of others. You see, I could have kept quiet about my life and preserved my good reputation as a pastor’s wife and leader in our community, but how would that help anyone else. My story is a story of redemption, a story where God gets the glory because it is clear what sort of woman I was without Him.

I fully expect the criticism and insults of those that are either religious or have never needed grace (or so they think). But the ones who struggle and feel that they have fallen too far from God to ever get back to Him, to these people I write as I know that what God did in my life will bring hope to them too.

Precious woman (or man) of God, no matter where you have been or what you have done in your life, you are only one step away from total forgiveness and restoration. You will read how I hurt God on many occasions, how I chose to walk away from Him many times. You will also read how He loved me in the good times and the bad times, how He always made a way for me to come back to Him and how He never gave up on me – EVER!

I am free, I am pure, I am forgiven and I am totally in love with the One who loved me before I knew how to love Him back. I write to you, making myself of no reputation, so that God can get the glory for the awesome life that I lead today.

Chapter snippets will follow soon, full details about this book here.

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

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
