Tworship Interviews Present:

Louise – @LadyLu8

 

Please provide us with a short bio of a few things about yourself including a few of your favorite things.

My family began attending church when I was 10 where I fell in love with Jesus, was baptised and decided to live for Him at the age of 14. Emmanuel and I met and became childhood sweethearts in church.  We married young and have 4 adult children: Joshua, Melissa, Jason and Jordan.  Josh is married to beautiful daughter in love, Veronica.  We also have an adopted daughter, Lucy, and are proud grandparents to Ashlan Louise, her little girl.  My family is my life.  Emmanuel was always involved in some form of ministry and followed Gods call to Bible College and on to ministry first as Assistants and then Senior Pastors after 3 years. Over the years, through the highs and lows, God has kept us.  Today we enjoy loving 0n and leading a multi cultural church – Real life where the journey continues.

Throughout my life, God has been my constant source of strength and security.  Through life events, I had learned to fear people, and became a timid and very obedient child. I withdrew emotionally as my issues with trust grew, finding solace, acceptance and a trusted friend in God. After years of feeling like a “square peg in a round hole” God met me and gave me a purpose – to love on and encourage those within my sphere of influence.  He also gave me the strength and resolve to let go of the things I cannot change. I find comfort and peace; I find rest and renewal; i find strength and continuing joy…in worship.  It’s my life-line. It’s my safety net. Its my life.

Being a “mercy” and “maternal” kind of gal, I embrace all who need me, sincerely. To the best of my ability, I also make myself available to all who need a listening ear as a qualified counselor.  People fascinate me and I’ve found that all have stories and all need love.  At times I am moved to tears…it comes with the tag : )

I love children! Sincere and honest, they tell it like it is and you know exactly where you stand. Some of my favourite things include: Wild, red poppies, walking on the beach, my family, reading, cooking, live theatre, entertaining, going on missions trips, and… people.

Has Tworship helped strengthen your walk with the Lord? Does it encourage you? If so, how.

I stumbled upon Tworship by accident and for a while followed anonymously, reading comments posted by @McProdigal.  I didn’t realise he was worshipping as I RT’d some of his posts…  From these shy beginnings, I was very kindly drawn into a community of worshippers that I’m still getting to know and growing to love.

Thru Tworship, God has gifted me with an opportunity to connect to a community of God-lovers, that are not ashamed to shout their love for God from the Twitter roof top.  I find my faith strengthened and fanned to go higher and stretch wider.  Apart from that, I have been gifted with a community of Prayer Warriors who will pray for me at a moment’s notice if I need it.  Can it get any better???

Life has its ups and downs and it can become a long time between Sundays during a “low” week.  Tworship is the invitation to participate in raising our minds, eyes, ears and hands…and is extended to everyone during the week.  Church is great… Worship is great… Tworship blends the two and provides all who participate with an opportunity to enjoy God’s “Presence” and “Church” 5 extra days per week!  I LOVE it!   The idea of “holding hands” across the globe in Tworship through the medium of Twitter is a testament of Godly and brotherly love.  It’s also a light to the path of all who may be searching for The Truth.  It is giving seekers the opportunity to connect with “The Church” for those who have yet to enter its four walls.  You could say, it’s calling out to the “Prodigals” and showing them the way home.  Bible says, “By this will all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another…”  John 13:35  That love is evident and shining brightly through Tworship.

What does the worship in Tworship mean to you and how do you display it?

Worship is everything to me.  I am a sinner, saved by the grace of Almighty God.  It is my reasonable act of service and love to extend my gratitude to The One who first loved, and died, to save me.  I display my worship in various ways depending on where I’m at.  From raising my hands in surrender, to dancing with joy; from kneeling in reverence, to being so overwhelmed by Gods love, that I can only cry.   It’s all worship to me.

Even though we are separate when we participate in Tworship, can you feel the closeness through the Holy Spirit? How does that make you feel?

Yes! There is no distance or time difference when “family” comes together in one mind and with one purpose.   The Holy Spirit has connected us, and is continuing to bind us together as we lift up Jesus Name… For this, I am grateful.

What are your top 3 favorite Tworship songs?

Some of my favourite songs are those by Artists: Hillsong, Delirious, Michael W Smith, Chris Tomlin, Brooke Fraser, Jesus Culture, Planet Shakers, etc, etc..  but also showing my bias by saying that some of my all time favourites have been written by my son Josh who heads a band called The Kingdom.  I love the well known “golden oldies” right through to contemporary ones.  Each generation has etched its notch into the worship lyrics of our God and I enjoy them all.  If it glorifies God, I’m happy!

1. This Is Our God – Hillsong

2. The Fathers Heart – Hillsong

3. Show Me Your Glory – Jesus Culture

Any other comments about Tworship you’d like to add?

I’m sure I speak for Tworshippers world wide when I say THANK YOU to Richard Mayhan and Marie Wikle for having this vision, for bringing it to fruition and facilitating Tworship.  Love it.  Love you.
