Cup of Faith is a South African online network for Christian women. Our platform is designed to share, inspire and encourage fellow Christian women through podcasts, blog posts, community reading plans, product reviews and much more!
Our bi-weekly podcast focuses on sharing a very relatable look at faith, with the hope that our members can share, support and encourage one another.
Each month, our community chooses a book to read and review in our virtual book club that encourage active discussions around your favourite Christian books.
Inspired by my own faith journey, I dreamt up the idea of Cup of Faith one morning, while sitting out on my deck, reading the Bible and sipping on tea. Realizing the impact that this habit had on my day, I wanted to create a platform where women could come to have their own cups filled.
My walk with faith started at a very young age. In fact, it started right from the time they placed me in an incubator following my birth. My gran tells me that she prayed over my incubator for the entire night and her and God had some serious chats about the life I’d lead.
My gran is a big inspiration to me. While she can rattle off verses until she turns blue in the face, the real beauty of her relationship with God is her love for Him – it’s so pure, raw and contagious that I can’t help but want to know Him more! To me, that’s the true testimony of Faith. Love God so much that others want to get to know Him too.
My grandparents are Christian missionaries who have travelled most of South Africa, England, Egypt, and Brazil. I have been really blessed in the sense that my gran encouraged and taught me about God in the most sincere and genuine of ways. I’d wake up on a Saturday morning to my granny singing loudly, while making me scrambled eggs and in between the songs, I’d hear her talking to God so frankly that I’d often think she were talking to my oups. I’d roll my eyes when she’d laugh hysterically and tell me, “oh Megan, God has such a good sense of humour. You know, your Oups really didn’t want to do this but God had other plans.” and then she’d laugh more. She’d marvel in plot twists, always taking it in her stride that this is God’s plan. But it wasn’t until my early twenties, that I wanted to forge my own relationship with Our Father.
My big God moment was during the birth of my first son. I was exhausted, things weren’t going as planned and well… I had never felt weaker. The doctors wanted to intervene, but I wasn’t having any of that, so I asked to go to the bathroom where I stood and called to God for strength. 30 minutes later, I was holding my newborn son surrounded by 4 doctors who didn’t believe I was ready to give birth. My birth was an experience like no other, and God’s presence could not be ignored.
It’s only recently that I’ve realised that my upbringing taught me to parrot-learn The Bible, but the more I explore faith on my own terms by really digging into The Bible, the more I’m in awe of God and His hand in my life which has encouraged me to seek Him, learn His word and share this journey with you.
Cup of Faith aspires to be an online community by women for women. No matter who you are, where you are from or where you are going, we want to share your stories.
I’m a beauty-obsessed, caffeine-fueled, soccer-loving, chocolate-eating, picture-taking, occasional-blogging, faith-inspired, mom of two boys. I live on copious amounts of coffee, work as a digital marketer, and spend my free time listening to podcasts, and bible journalling. I enjoy baking fresh treats for my family, exploring our local city, and looking for new family-friendly places for our kids to enjoy.
A struggling adult (where's the reset button???), part-time student, and natural hair fanatic. My life is dedicated to edifying Christ’s bride and assisting brides and grooms with their earthly marriages. In my spare time, I enjoy reading anything by Francine Rivers, lazying around with my two sisters and parents, or penning down (well, typing out) my thoughts on my blog Thoughts and Other Things.
I enjoy writing, quilting, gospel music, and being Oma to 8 precious grandchildren. We were a farming family, retiring to Medicine Hat, Alberta in 2000. My husband Tony, is the love of my life, and my faithfully patient caregiver. We have 3 adult children with families, and they are very supportive and loving. I am truly blessed, despite my health challenges, and I believe my ministry from home is God’s calling for me! I am privileged to share my Faith and bring God’s love whenever possible.
I was born and raised in a remote part of Cornwall and started work as a secondary school teacher before going into full-time Christian work. I love my family (including my husband, children and two hilarious grandchildren), my friends, the church I serve in, the sea and all nature, reading, gardening, theme park rides, I constantly marvel at God's grace and equally constantly need it. My first book, Finding Our Voice, was published in July 2019 and I'm currently working on the second.
Fueled by Grace, coffee and giggles! I am a coffee addict, chocolate-loving, playdough making machine who is passionate about living a life of faith and keeping things simple! I am married to my best friend, a mommy to my 4 miracle kids and we are in full-time Ministry, leading a church in Johannesburg.
I'm Jodi, wife and mom of two. I took a leap of faith and gave up teaching 3 years ago when my son was born. Since then, God has had me on a steep learning curve and now I devote all my extra time to encouraging women to grow their faith. I love creating resources and my heart is to teach and pastor women into full and abundant lives. Every day is a faith adventure and I love being on mine.
