This short film is really, really great. I loved it. psssst….it has a surprise ending that is so cute. It will brighten your day. ENJOY!
This is the dedication on the first page of Charlotte Scanlon-Gambill’s book In her Shoes
I dedicate this book to the true heroes of the Faith. Those who have not just lived life from their own vantage point but have stepped into the shoes of others and made a difference to another’s world.
To you who have loved the unlovely, embraced the unwanted, remembered the forgotten and included the lonely: you are amazing. Your reward is truly stored up in heaven but whilst you are here on earth I salute you for your strength, tenacity and selfless love. It is breathtaking.
The world is all the richer because of who you are and all you do I pray that as you refresh others you yourself will be refreshed. I pray you will feel the kiss of heaven all over your life in increasing measure.
WOW what an amazing women. I purchased her Identity book also while at Sistas Conference (post to come) this weekend just been. I am in the progress of reading In her Shoes and man what an amazing, thought provoking and awakening book.
Will fill you in on the book once I have finished it – I can tell just from the opening dedication, this will be a book I read more than once! Read a sample chapter here.
Check out the YouTube video below of her speaking – amazing talented women!

Easter, or Resurrection Day, as many Christians refer to the holiday, is a time when we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Today is Good Friday, this is a very significant day for Christians as Jesus was crucified today 2000 years ago – it is called Good Friday because of the good deed Jesus did.
My church (Life) held ‘The Watch’ last night which was a night where we all gathered at church which was open from 10 pm till 7am today, to reflect on what Jesus did for us on the cross.
Here are some photos of what church looked like, amazing job the creative team did
The cross is a very significant symbol for Christianity, Jesus was nailed to a cross and beard the sins of the entire world “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” ~ John 3:16
Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. (NIV)
On the third day of Easter, Jesus was raised from the dead (Easter Monday) like he had told his 12 disciples.

Easter is the most important time of the year for Christians (other than Christmas when Jesus was born). I am very thankful for Jesus giving his life for us
1 Peter 1:18-19
For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And the ransom he paid was not mere gold or silver. He paid for you with the precious lifeblood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God
