And breathe…

Despite all the hectic running around oganising and packing for a family of five, which I hate, I do love it when we get here and I begin to unwind. 

I posted a photo on my Instagram account of the stack of books I’ve taken with me that I hope to peruse since I’m switching off Social media for August.  But I forgot to add this favourite that I return to again and again when I need a bit of soul comfort and inspiration as a woman. If there’s one book that I’d recommend any woman who wrestles with spirituality this is it. 

Sue Monk Kidd is a gorgeous writer. I love her novels The secret life of bees, The mermaid chair and The wings of invention. But this raw, personal memoir is goes right to the core of what it is to be a woman, especially within the Christian tradition. 

My own tradition is by no means perfect but I’m grateful that within Methodism there are highly visible women inspiring and leadIng. I am in training to be a fully accredited lay preacher and get to lead services locally as I study. My most recent talk at Dundrum Methodist Church was recorded and you can listen to it here

While I’ll be quiet on Facebook, Twitter and  Instagram, I’ll blog a bit over the coming weeks and tell you a little about the exciting women I’ve got lined up to interview in the autumn. 
Til then, keep struttin and bellowin’!
