Thirteen years ago...

Thirteen years ago Ken and Keira responded to the call into ministry once again. This time they would give up their jobs and jump in with both feet. Their hearts beat for the same thing - seeing university campuses produce leaders that would take the Presence of God into their spheres of influence and lead others to do the same, seeing cultures radically changed for the glory of God...Welcome to their heartbeat...


When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion,
we were like those who dreamed. Our mouths were filled with laughter,
our tongues with songs of joy.
Then it was said among the nations,
"The Lord has done great things for them."
The Lord has done great things for us,
and we are filled with joy.
Restore our fortunes, Lord,
like streams in the Negev.
Those who sow with tears
will reap with songs of joy.
Those who go out weeping,
carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy,
carrying sheaves with them. Psalm 126 NIV

After a week of what has seemed like an endless attack of negative thoughts and emotions running wild, I was encouraged by a friend to push through in worship. My God is a great God and He does Great things! I was thinking tonight about the creative power that my King embodies and it lifted my spirit just thinking about what He could create through me. There are no limitations really! "Keep on dreaming", I felt Him say to me. So I have created another page - a page that will contain songs that flow from my devotional times

A faith, a love and a hope that's come into this world

We give thanks to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of your love for all the saints; because of the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, of which you heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel, which has come to you, as it has also in all the world, and is bringing forth fruit, as it is also among you since the day you heard and knew the grace of God in truth. Colossians 1:3-6 NKJV

A very good friend of mine asked me if I was a "shouter" this week. Do I let people know when I'm in need? I said I'm getting better at it. I am in need now. I really want you to pray these verses for us. I asked God on the weekend why I kept crying. He said to me that He was growing in me a deeper hunger to see His Kingdom flood this earth, to see His people rise up, link arms and be His hands and feet. He told me that He takes us into these deep places of emotional rawness to compel us with His heart for freedom and power in the lives of people. His heart is deep. Tapping into it can leave me shaky. I was shaking while playing the keys at church on Sunday. I watched my hands shaking and realised God is doing something new in me. My yearning desire is that this new thing will reverberate throughout my surroundings...This morning God encouraged me that His fruit has been amoung us since the day we heard and knew of His grace...

I've added a new link to this page - I'm slowly uploading the pages of a book that's been brewing inside of me since going through my darkest days almost four years ago now. It's called The Women of Virtue and it's a work in progress. I strongly believe that nothing with lasting impact comes without a story behind it worth telling. There is purpose in everything.

He's making all things new

So yes, it's been eight years since we started out on this venture, seven since we completely resigned from our jobs and, well, in our eyes, we feel as though we are right back at the start! Thankfully God's perspective is often very different to ours and we know that He has been constantly at work. What is He up to now? That's the question I've been asking, and that's what inspired this blog. We have a massive vision and in order to stir up the faith for it I wanted to have something tangible online to follow the journey - to encourage us and for others to join their faith with ours! In years to come we will look back at where it all began and remember each step of God's Testimony through our lives!
