Tell us a little about you I am Jo - a strong, loyal, honest, hard-working woman, committed to serving Jesus and learning more in order to be transformed by God’s grace. Currently, I’m a full-time (Licenced) Lay Minister for Youth, Children and Families at a vibrant Anglican church in Brisbane…. just completing the last two subjects of my Bachelor of Theology. What's your favourite bible passage & why? Psalm 103:1-5 is my prayer, my testimony, and my hope.
Let my whole bein
Tell us a little about you
I am a highly sensitive, over-thinking introvert, who loves to delve into the deeper meaning of life and who values relationships above most other things.
My academic pursuits have been in psychology, English literature, gender studies and politics, including notions of identity and the politics of power. I have worked in the areas of social policy, parliamentary research, family and domestic violence counselling, and as a conciliator for the An
Tell us a little about you I am an Aboriginal Christian Leader and a descendant of the Waka Waka peoples. I was born in Cairns and grew up in, and now reside in Redcliffe on Gubbi Gubbi country so Redcliffe is very much home. I was raised with my younger sister in a single parent home by my Mum who inspires me by her strength, passion, loyalty and by helping others less fortunate then we were. I become a Christian 17 years ago at the age of 21. I am the Aboriginal spokespers
I am a dramatically saved, beautifully free, humbly grateful, graciously blessed woman of God. I have known pain, sorry, isolation and despair. But now I live a life of healing, of laughter, of love and of joy all thanks to Jesus!
I have been a Christian now for 18 years and have been married for 8 and have 3 incredible children. I was born in Adelaide but have lived in Melbourne since 2010 and love it here. It truly is the land of lattes, and who doesn't love a l
Tell us a little about you
I am the 55 year old woman, mother of two beautiful adults (a son and daughter), who has wrestled with the call to priestly ministry for 40 years. At 51, after at least three previous promptings by the Spirit (including a time in my 30’s when I went to Theological School while I was caretaker at a Anglican Parish in Sydney, living in the rectory with my two children), I was on a silent retreat with the Third Order Franciscans (I am a tertiary of th
And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this? - Esther 4:14 It is unlikely that we will ever be able to truly comprehend the impact that each of our individual lives will make on the world around us. It is not possible (to my great displeasure) to back-track and discover how we have influenced the people that we have met. On the flip side of this, that might just be a good thing. If we only knew how that negative attitude or off-the-cuff rema
A little about me: I have just shockingly turned 60 ... how could that be? But now that the shock has settled, I am so grateful for all the blessings of this life, all that I have experienced and the love and grace I have been shown. I have 3 children, a loving husband, 5 stepchildren and 4 grandchildren between us, so life is never quiet or without incident of one kind or another! Favourite Bible passage and why? Joshua 1:9
Have I not commanded you to be strong and courageo
“Where are you?” the Spirit whispered to me. “I am right here!” I quickly replied. “Where?” He asked again. “I am here. I am with my family – teaching my daughter Your ways and loving my husband. I am in Your House – building your church. I am with my friends – encouraging and supporting them to be all that You have called them to be. I am right here!” The Spirit whispered to me again, “I didn’t ask what you were doing, I asked where you were.” I sat stunned by my inability t
Tell us a little about you I was recently described as "an English teacher, pastor, feminist, journalism graduate and punk-crafter" and that about sums it up! I'm also allowed to feed and cuddle a Russian Blue cat. What's your favourite bible passage & why? I spent a long time with the book of Habakkuk and I just love it. The extremity and intensity of Habakkuk's final hymn of trust in God smacks me in the face every time I read it. So, Habakkuk chapter 3. How do you keep you
