Women of the World

I didn't sleep well last night.  I was troubled.  What I had heard yesterday disturbed me.  Surely that can't be true.  Surely that sort of thing doesn't still happen in this day and age.  There are women in this world, many women, who have real problems.  Life threatening problems.  These women have no help and they continue to suffer without any hope of change.  I tossed and turned all night, wrestling with God, saying, "What can I do, I am just one woman with little to offer."  
    It was then that I realised that King's Daughters is not about me, it never was and I never wanted it to be, but it is all about what God wants to do for His daughters in this world.  He is grieved that His precious daughters are suppressed and we who are free should rise up and do something about it.

How?  I don't know but that doesn't mean we will sit back and do nothing.  
When? Right now.  
Who?  You and me
Why?  Because we can

Together, we can make a difference.  We will start by raising awareness of the suffering of other women.  We will start by raising up a team to build King's Daughters into an international organisation.  We will start by praying that God's will be done.  
    Women in the UK and USA, do you know how rich you are?  Do you know how small your problems really are?  Do you know that if you lost everything today you would still be better off than most women in other parts of the world?  Consider women who are trapped in the sex trade in most of Europe, Thailand and Brazil.  Young girls who are being subjected to genital mutilation in Kenya as a part of their culture, young girls being abducted and raped by LRA warlords in Sudan.  Do you want to hear more or would you rather turn a blind eye? 

Open your mouth for the speechless, In the cause of all who are appointed to die.
Open your mouth, judge righteously, And plead the cause of the poor and needy.
- Proverbs 31:8-9

And so, today, I have started a new category on this blog called 'World Wide' where we will explore what is happening to women and see what we can do about it.  As wealthy and privileged women, we must fight for those that cannot fight for themselves.  We will all stand before God one day and have to give account for how we used everything He has given us, and saying that we maintained a nice house and nice car  and raised 2.4 children won't cut it!
    Soon I will share with you what I heard about yesterday.  Be prepared to have your heart ripped out, it's gut wrenching and we must do something about it.  If you want to get involved in the King's Daughters Causes team please get in touch and if you live in the South West of England why not join us this Saturday to raise money for a disadvantaged Kenyan woman's son, Amos - join us for a fundraising meal this Saturday in Ross-on-Wye. It's £15 for a traditional African meal and promises to be a fantastic afternoon. For more info please contact Mark and Cynthia at


  1. I recently saw the movie ' The Whistleblower' with Rachel Weisz and it discussed the sex trade in Bosnia. When you see the statistics at the end of these movies, such as 'Trade' with Kevin Kline - it is very disturbing. I cannot believe a lot of this goes on in America too - it's very scary and sad.

      Hi Yona,

      It's terrible how ignorant us western women are don't you think? Most of the world's women are hurting and we need to do something about it.

      Thank you for stopping by.


  2. Hello,

    It's horrible that women are suffering in the world and I know that I have to pray for them. We can't turn away we have to do something and it starts now. Thank you for posting this. Coming from the Thursday Katherine's corner blog hop.

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
