About Patience

I work with YWAM Burgtigny as their Basic Leadership Program team leader, I'm pioneering the B2B school (Be the Leader God wants you 2 be) for YWAM Switzerland and I'm a budding author. I love God and enjoy seeing Him captivate and transform others into who He's created them to be. I grew up in Scotland but I've also lived in the USA, England, India & Romania too.

#14 The Inductive Bible Study Method

Many of us have a prefered way we study the bible. Others aren’t too sure of how to study the bible apart from reading a section or chapter and praying that God would show us more of Himself through it. Today I’d like to share with you a method which will take you longer than the average, but the amount you get out of it is worth the time (and effort). It’s called the Inductive Bible Study method because

August’s book of the month – the me I want to be – by John Ortberg

I enjoy many of John Ortberg’s books. But this one - the me I want to be - is particularly dear to my heart as it focuses’ on us becoming more of who God has created us to be - especially as individuals. For us to become better leaders - we need to understand and be comfortable with who we are as unique individuals. Ortberg’s book takes us through many of the areas we need to examine as to

July is the month about getting to know yourself better. Therefore my website recommendation for July is i.e. Spiritual Gifts Test The website is straightforward to look at - not many graphics or colour, but it delivers what it promises. Jeff Carver created the site after God put on his heart to help fellow believers be good stewards of the gifts He’d given them. If you’re new to thinking about having or using the Spiritual Gifts, then this website will

What to do when you think your leader is wrong

All leaders are people, therefore not perfect. Only God is perfect. Depending on where a leader is in their personal journey will affect how they deal with and respond to situations. But the question for today is what to do when YOU think your leader(s) are wrong. I'm sure many of us have had a similar experience at some point where a leader has come in, quickly shared what's going to happen next and then added at the end

#12 What is Mentoring – why it’s wise to have one?

Intro - what is mentoring? In it's purest form, mentoring is learning from someone who's been in your position before and can help you grow. It can cover simple things like learning to bake, leading a small group, getting used to working in a large office environment to leading a ministry or church. A mentor can be your official leader or a peer or a friend of a friend. They can even be a stranger at the beginning. You

The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman

"So what's your love language?" This may be a strange question to hear someone ask you if you're not familiar with Gary Chapman's books on The 5 Love Languages. If that's the case, then my book recommendation for July is especially relevant. We all need and want to be loved in ways that are meaningful for us. Not just in a sexual way but also by our family and friends. Gary's original book titled - The 5 Love Languages
