Being part of the team at Step is fabulous. You'll mostly find me in schools in Harpenden. It is a great town to represent Step within. While I have been there I even managed to bump into a Stormtrooper outside High Street Methodist Church. Turns out not only did he have an amazing sense of humour, he was a Bridesmaid for two wonderful Step Volunteers, Sam and James Manning. 

A little about me...

I grew up in Scotland on a small island called Tiree (pictured above), lived in Devon, Watford, Harpenden and now find myself living south of St Albans with my Husband. 

Photography, Poetry, lighting fires, talking with friends, Grand Designs, David Attenborough documentaries and walking in the sand.... are just a few of the things that I spend my free time doing. 

Here are a few of my favourites from between June and November. I will keep updating these as time goes on so do look out for a good view or two of God's creation.

Can you guess where it is?

Why Step?

Talking about my faith is something I like to do. I found faith when I was 17 and decided that it changed my life so much that I wanted to spend as much time as I could sharing about the difference it made.

 I have been part of the Step family since I was 19. I joined as part of my Gap Year, I did two with Step and then have been very fortunate to have been encouraged by Chris to take on a degree and become qualified as a Schools Worker. I have had an amazing time with Step in the last few years.

The reason I love working with Step is the opportunity to spend time in local schools, enabling young people and teachers to understand more about the Christian faith from a group of local people who believe in God. I am convinced that life lived with Jesus as a Christian is the best way to live and I am still learning what this looks like on a day to day basis.
