Asking God for your heart's desire with Ruth Leigh

Show Notes

My guest for this episode is the author, blogger, and writing coach Ruth Leigh. I met Ruth relatively recently through a mutual friend and she has spoken at a conference I organized in Cambridge England in 2021. Ruth is a warm and funny person and that generosity of spirit that she has, that has been gifted to her by God comes out in what she says and what she writes. 

In this episode, we talk about trusting that we are assured of God’s precious love for us as His children and that he wants the best for us, the fact that everyone has a story to tell, and how important it is for us to follow those little nudges that God gives us through the prompting of His holy spirit.


For those of you who are based in the UK or can get to the UK in September of this year, 2022, Ruth will be speaking at the Christian writer’s conference in Cambridge on Saturday 3rd September, and there are still some tickets left for that event.


I had a wonderful time talking to Ruth, as I always do, this is her story.

18.That which seems impossible God will make possible

My guest for this episode is someone who has spent nearly twenty years faithfully pursuing what seems like an impossible task.  He is following a calling from God to build a piece of public art in England that will be a visible demonstration of God’s answers to prayer. The Eternal Wall of answered prayer, or Eternal Wall as it’s referred to is designed in the shape of a Mobius band, an infinity loop that will stand over 50 metres tall and contain over 1 million bricks. Each of these bricks will represent an answered prayer and visitors to the Eternal Wall will be able to access the story for each prayer, and search for answered prayers on different themes and issues. So who is the guy behind this project, what are the challenges he has had to overcome? How has Jesus been his companion on this journey and what lessons has Jesus taught my guest along the way? These are important questions for a man who believes that the journey we take as we seek God in prayer is actually more important than the answer we receive. That man is the leader of the eternal wall project, his name is Richard Gamble and this is his story. ...

9. Commit your work to God, with Michael J Harvey

My guest for this episode is a charity worker, historian and author of the Fantasy series 'Oron Amular'.  His name is Michael J Harvey and in this episode he talks about giving your art to God, holding on to His promises, and not giving up - a subject he has earned the right to talk about this because he had to wait 17 years to see his work published; he didn’t give on his dreams over that time, rather he held on to the promises that he felt God had given him. This is his story. ...
