I Don't Know What to Say :/

I have sat with my hands on the keys several times now, to write to you but never know what to say. So here it is, I am just going to let it come out, raw and real. You see, I have a choice, I can pitch what I have to say to you in a very positive, exciting way (which would be honestish) or I can pour out my heart and soul which could be overly negative and draining for you. For your sake and mine I will do neither, I am not pitching anything to you, it is not positive nor negative, it just is. This is where the journey has taken me and many of you have been reading my posts for years and have stayed with me through all the ups and downs, trials and tests, joys and laughter.

Not A New Beginning

I considered calling this post A New Beginning but realised that it is not a new beginning at all, it is the next chapter in our book, a new season in our life, perhaps even a turn at a cross road. I considered calling it Starting Over only to realise that nothing is starting over but this new chapter, or perhaps we can even call it a new book, is the wonderful culmination of all that we have been through, learned, failed at and enjoyed. Life has brought us to this point and it is both terrifying and wonderful. We had to go through every single thing that we have been through to get to this point and this point is all part of God's master plan. This is what I choose to believe. If I don't believe it then life just doesn't make sense. God is good. He is always good. He is full of mercy. He is love. So what I am choosing to believe makes sense based on these very important facts.

Death Brings Life

Truly, truly I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains by itself alone. But if it dies, it bears much fruit.  - John 12:24

Sometimes we just have to die! Die to self. Die to our selfish plans and desires. Die to our way of thinking. Die to so many things. If we don't die we will never live. The Bible is full of things that are hard to understand but once you come out the other side they make perfect sense and offer so much freedom that you wonder why it took you so long to get it. I am currently in the pre-die stage, working through dying. At least in this area. In past seasons I can testify to the pain of dying and how wonderful it is bearing much fruit when you come alive again.

The one who loves his life loses it, and the one who hates his life in this world preserves it for eternal life. - John 12:25

King's Life 

So this brings me to our big announcement. We haven't worked out the details yet, we don't know where this path will lead, but we do know that this is the right next step. As you may have noticed, our website address, name, logo, branding, social media, email address and everything has changed! This is a nutshell overview of what is happening:

  1. King's Daughters, AD Life and Cheltenham School of Music have merged into one amazing ministry called King's Life Ministries. Eric and I have joined forces and will be coming together to build what we are most passionate about, which is;

  2. King's Life Ministries is about the church - the wider church not one building in particular - the body of Christ. We are most passionate about this which is why it makes perfect sense to make this our main focus. Our mission is to 'equip the saints for the work of ministry and building up the body of Christ' as it says in Ephesians 4:12  Eric and I will write and preach along these lines under the general category in the blog called King's Life.

  3. King's Daughters will continue under the umbrella of King's Life Ministries with a clear mission to create connection opportunities for women. We will focus on prayer, study of the word and friendship. You can continue to follow these posts in the blog category King's Daughters.

  4. King's Life Music will transform from Eric's existing music business, Cheltenham School of Music, to a more specific focus of teaching music, worship leading and songwriting. We will also record our own music and make it available for your enjoyment.

This is the new season, next chapter, change in direction or whatever you wish to call it. I am exciting about partnering directly with my husband on this project, we work well together and have complimentary skills which is great. We will take it slowly though and not rush into anything, we would love you to walk with us, share your views with us and please pray for us. All King's Daughters mailing lists and social media have changed now to King's Life Ministries so please invite your men over to join us.

So that's it - for someone who didn't know what to say at first, I said quite a lot didn't I!



  1. Great post, Angela! Look forward to reading your blog!

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
