Hello Beloved One,
First, thanks for taking a little time out of your day to come and be here. My hope for this site is simple:
Come Closer Together…. To encourage everyday women (like you) to come together and inspire and encourage one another.
Come Closer to God… My hope is that through the articles and materials on this site you will come closer to our heavenly Father God who God who loves you so wonderfully.
2020 has been a year of continual change and uncertainty across the globe. As we move forwards, we’re creating ways to bless and encourage you.
The first is the relaunch of our newly named blog ‘Simply Closer’. We chose the word ‘simply’ as we believe God told us to keep things simple. We can also come to God simply (completely) as we are and allow Him to change us in only the way that He can. Articles are written by myself, the Come Closer team and other everyday women who simply want to share with you their own experiences.
The second is aimed to strengthen you in your everyday life, particularly as we are not able to hold events at the moment. Colossians 2:6-7 says: Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving. So, we will post periodic videos or audios, called ‘walk closer’, which are designed to strengthen one another as we commit to walking, growing and being built up In Him.
We are all on a journey and the women who contribute to Come Closer are no different. None of us have the same story. We have all faced obstacles, some harder to imagine than others, but we know that God is real and able to help us and YOU every day no matter what your past or present situation is.
So, take a look around… Why not start by reading a poem that started us on this journey called ‘Come Closer’.
Be inspired. Be encouraged.

Emma believes in encouraging individuals to rise up, with dignity, strength and compassion; knowing their identity in Christ and understanding God’s unique plan for their lives, and the rich treasury he has for them. Women (and Men), who, for such a time as this, will encourage, support and cheer one another on through the gritty places of life as well the victories. To be generations together who will impact our communities in loving authenticity, be light in the darkness as followers of Jesus, and listen inventively to the Holy Spirits promptings).
