04 Aug Giveaway: Celebrating our first birthday!
On Saturday, we celebrated our 1st birthday. In such a short time, we’ve achieved amazing things through God! When I first launched this platform I had NO idea how I was going to do what I had so long hoped and dreamed of. I didn’t know enough women who wanted to contribute to my new space, I didn’t know how to record a podcast nevermind publish it, and the thought of speaking about my faith journey seemed daunting if I am being honest. But God called, so I answered and trusted Him.
In this last year, we’ve won the Best South African Religious Blog, we’ve grown to a thriving community of more than 6,000 members across all platforms, have launched a Facebook group to get to know our community more intimately and continue to push and develop this platform to be everything that I had hoped. Most recently, we’ve launched an online store which has a few basic products available to purchase, with more in development and waiting to be launched. In addition, we’ve gained the attention of several local and international authors, publishers and artists who have been in touch to work together on upcoming projects. But at the core of it all, is our contributors who help keep this space alive with beautiful, often vulnerable, and inspiring content. They help fulfil my hope that any woman is able to go to our blog and find at least one other woman they can relate to.
To say I’m proud is a massive understatement. The phrase, ‘online ministry’ often makes me feel uncomfortable because I don’t feel equipped to lead a ministry especially having grown up in my family’s ministry and seeing what it takes to be a minister, but I think that’s what stops so many of us from spreading God’s word. Truthfully, God doesn’t call us to be anything more than ourselves, He puts us exactly where we’re meant to be and it’s up to us to be obedient and trust. Online ministry still seems too large of a label but I will say that God continues to reveal an exciting path for Cup of Faith and as long as this platform is serving Him and our community, I’ll continue to be obedient and trust Him to guide me.

I’m a coffee-wielding mood reader and romance book collector who may or may not have a slight addiction to buying books. I read a variety of sub-genres within romance, including rom-coms, dark romance, and fantasy. I love sharing my thoughts on books, whether it’s through book reviews, quotes, or recommendations inspired by my current reads. Through my romance book blog, Literary Inspired, I aim to provide in-depth book reviews, curated reading recommendations, and exclusive author promotions. I’m passionate about supporting indie authors and sharing my latest book discoveries with others. When I’m not reading, you can find me cheering on my favorite football team and F1 drivers, crafting, baking with my kids or playing with my pets.
