Welcome to a Vivid Life! It is my dream that this will become a platform where women can inspire women to authentic living and where grace will be extravagant. A place where we can encourage one another to run the race with joy and abandon, our eyes fixed upon Jesus – the author and finisher of our faith!
Married, a Mother and a Missionary, often Martha and occasionally Mary, I am afresh struck by SONDER – the realization that everyone is living their own vivid life. Therefore, I believe sharing our stories, and linking our journeys will strengthen us to be and do more. For we all know what it feels like to:
- Drive around in circles – unable to make decisions,
- Get stuck in peak traffic – being pulled in opposite directions by home and work,
- Break down next to a highway – from burnout and exhaustion or
- Find ourselves traveling alone through a life storm – abandoned by colleagues, family, or friends.
Fellow pilgrim, join me in the Land of Hope, where I have already pitched my tent! En route, we can inspire others to wholehearted living, single-minded devotion, and unceasing prayer. Planted not packaged, our Farmer-Father promises us wholeness, purpose and abundance; freedom, fun, and fruitfulness! Thus, let us remain in the Vine – a planting of the Lord – that He may be glorified!
Each month you will be challenged to reach out to someone else, by blessing them with a basket – generously filled up from the overflow of your own lives, pantries, gardens, and experiences. Books to read, organizations to contact, playlists to download, recipes to make and Bible studies to dig into – all according to the topic of the month.
Yes, 12 months, 12 baskets, and 12 different themes to help us live generously and joyfully in 2021.
The idea is that we will venture out, armed with a basket put together with love and care, and as the Holy Spirit prompts, bless a neighbour or a friend, a newcomer or family in need of encouragement.
