About Me

About Me

 So, I'm a 40 something wife, mum of 3, lover of Jesus and I tend to start a lot of sentences with 'so'. I started this blog back in 2010 shortly after my husband and I had committed our lives to Jesus. There was so much going on that I just wanted to write it all down, really as a record for us, but as time went on and people asked about our story and gave nice comments on the blog I realised it might be impacting others.

Me at work, wondering whether this skirt
is perhaps a tad too short for church...?
So, now, 5 years on I still write about the crazy life of following Jesus and what that means for us and our family. In 5 years sooooo much has happened, our lives have literally been transformed in amazing ways and much of that litters the virtual pages of this blog, so do have a dive in and see what you find.

I now work for my church and I'm an Ordinand too, training for ministry in the Church of England (also known as #VicarSchool ) so I write about that sometimes and you'll find the odd sermon or theological reflection in amongst it all as well. Plus, I love God's word and love to write about that so expect the bible to appear frequently.

Reading the word of God
on the beach - perfect day out :)
I also love to rant, er I mean write, about my love of the good old CofE, which is at times sorely tested but someone once told me that the greek for 'frustration' is the same as the word meaning 'vision' so I take frustration as a good thing... (after the event that is, during, there is much ranting, which also litters these posts, sorry about that).

What I write here is just my opinions and don't necessarily represent my church or the CofE, but I hope that they might be a little bit interesting, perhaps entertaining and maybe even sometimes faintly amusing. If they impact you or make you think, or mean something to you then that's just amazing. I do love to chat, so feel free to comment, it's always good to discuss other peoples views so do join the conversation!

You can also follow me on Twitter @redjules or Facebook  and feel free to share/link/like etc there's links on the bottom of each post, so do use them!


Just a little thing, and a bit dull, but feel I should say...

I am a creative type so I do value the stuff I put together, whether it's in words, photos or pictures, however I also recognise that it's all God-given. So I'd love it if you want to share anything I've written, after all I don't feel it's owned by me. But that said, if you are copying, quoting or using a picture from this blog, could I ask you nicely, to include a link and a credit? I'd really appreciate it, thanks :)
