We are approaching that wonderful time of the year again where we remember the manifestation of our redemption, Jesus.
‘And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.’ – 1 Timothy 3:16
Our redemption is a beautiful mystery, explained only by Jesus.
As we celebrate with our families and loved ones, we also remember those in need. Let us use our freedom to give others that same freedom. Let us use what we have, to provide for others. Let us serve as we have been served.
For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ – Matthew 25:35-40
I will be volunteering with a Charity called CRISIS this Christmas! If you would like to volunteer, do check out their website for information on the variety of roles and locations available during Christmas week 2014! They will have various centres providing food, shelter and company to those in need. You can select the centre that you would like to work at, as you fill out the ‘General Volunteer’ application form.
I will be volunteering for 14 hours on two days at the South London Day Centre (Wednesday 24th December 3-10pm and Monday 29th December 3-10pm), which will be held at:
City Of London Academy
If you would like to be placed in the same centre as me and possibly work the same hours, when the form asks you for ‘a friends application reference number’ you can put mine down which is: ’41s1xk46′
If not, grab a friend and volunteer together at a different location! It’s a great way to give back and serve this Christmas.
If you’re unsure about anything, please email me, firstname.lastname@example.org
God bless you and Merry Christmas 🙂

Kanayo is a Multi-award winning, Author and Senior leader in education whose experience ranges from being a Deputy Head of Sixth Form, Head of Psychology and Lead Practitioner. Kanayo believes that these 3 elements are the driving force of her ministry and career. D.I.G; Drive, Integrity and Grace.
Having a psychology degree provides me with a broad scope to experience many industries and fields of work. Although, my main aim is to continuously learn and also to share my knowledge and experience with others, within and beyond the constraints of the psychology community. Hence my pursuit to teach!
Hopefully, the readers of this blog will find that it is infested with a scope of psychological knowledge, with the intention of conveying psychology in such a way that it is interesting and understandable to those who aren’t studying it as a discipline. In addition, you will find that I heavily cover various topics aside of psychology such as, Christianity because I am a Christian. I draw both passions together, Psychology and Christianity, observing how they complement and sometimes clash! This blog is where ‘Psychology meets Scripture’.
As well as teaching Psychology, I know God has called me to do something far greater in this world. My passion is for His Word and to encourage others to read the Bible, fall in love with it, but most importantly…fall in love with The Author! My role of teaching is not limited to psychology. I strongly believe God is stirring up the ‘teacher’ office of the Five fold ministry in me.
I’m a doctor by virtue, healing and performing heart surgery with words of encouragement.
I am extremely driven and passionate about getting everyone; both Christians and non-Christians to read, understand and live out the word of God. To achieve this, I’ve created online Bible Challenges, whereby people around the world via social media, read a book in the Bible, one chapter a day and share what they have drawn out from the text. I have numerous Bible challenges, all accessible from my blog (www.doctorkanayo.com) and the YouVersion Bible App where over 250,000 people have completed my devotionals around the world. One Bible Challenge at a time, I aim to change the skewed perceptions of the Bible being irrelevant and to show the true reality that the bible is ‘juicy’, tremendously relevant, fun and easy to read. My one prayer is that my teachings and writings from His word, will touch at least ONE person. That would be a serious mission accomplished to the glory of God!
If you have anything you would like me to blog about, do let me know by either commenting, or contacting me via my contact form.
Thank you for visiting my blog. With love, Kanayo x
