In my last post I told you about the Radio Pulpit interview on the 24th of April. I had so much fun talking about being sensitive with Christine Ferreira on her weekly program "Met hart en siel". You can listen in on her program on Tuesday mornings from 9:00 to 11:00.
What a privilege to talk about something so close to my heart and also something close to God's heart. It is also very exciting stuff being on radio and witnessing how it is all done.
I hope that you were able to tune in and listen to the interview. If not, you can order the CD (we order directly from Radio Pulpit) and the interview booklet with extras like a book recommendation list, directly from my online store, here.
The topics we addressed where:
1. How I found out that I was "Highly Sensitive".
2. What it means to be Highly Sensitive.
3. How this temperament can influence your life.
4. The nature of a Highly Sensitive person.
5. How a believer should judge this temperament.
6. The profile (Do the test by clicking on the tab on my homepage here)
7. How it affect kids and their emotional growth.
8. Healthy strategies to manage this temperament well.
9. The role of creativity and developing creativity in the Highly Sensitive Person.
Some of these we just touched on, so I am putting all of my preparation for this talk into a little book.
Extras that I am adding in the book is:
1. A quick book recommendation list.
2. All the content that we didn't get around to talk about.
3. Info about my Kaleido workshops.

Workshops coming up:
I am currently putting together my first online workshop for the 30th of June 2018.
The workshop will include a workbook and videos. If you order the printable/digital kit, you have to print the workbook and creative kit yourself. If you order a printed kit, the workbook and creative kit will be sent to you. You can also order a journal with your printed bundle.
Just a recap:
You can get all this and order a printed kit to be delivered to your door. You will still get access to the online classroom and video links.
Who will benefit from this workshop:
Anyone interested in the highly sensitive temperament.
Any creative temperaments.
This is in introduction to being sensitive and how to deal with it.
There will be practical creative focus elements to this workshop as well.
Hope to see you in class soon.
Welcome to 2018!
Yes, I know it is April already and going on May, but so much has been going on behind the scenes over at Ivytree Studio. This is the first opportunity I have had to update the Kaleido News.
24 April 2018 - I will interviewed by Christine Ferreira from the lovely Lèèf Magazine, on her regular Tuesday program between 9:00 and 11:00. Click on the Radio pulpit logo below to go to the website and listen live online.
You can also visit their website to find out about other ways you can tune in.
Christine and I will be talking about being Highly Sensitive and Creative from a Christian's perspective.
We hope you tune in. You can leave me some comments here or on my page over at KaleidoSA on Facebook. Click here.
I am also very excited about my first Kaleido workshop. It will be a creative workshop but also very informative one and it will be fully online and digital. Via the online workshop, a larger audience can be reached with the message that your sensitive temperament is NORMAL. It is also not as intrusive as in person workshops, something the HSP person will relate to easier.
My workshops for now will focus on informing people about this temperament and teaching them basic strategies to manage it well.
Click on the images below to book your workshop for the 30th of June (New date).
More info to follow soon.
The first Kaleido talk was held at the Holokleria Church in Pretoria in March 2017.
It has been a while since I had to do public speaking so a little nervous at first. It was a small group of ladies who got together on a Saturday afternoon to help pack goodies for the less privileged ladies in their community. I loved the warm and friendly welcome and kindness and love so obviously shared between them. I totally felt at home.
At first I planned to stick to the message I had prepared and shared here in my previous post, but as it was already available to them online and with the limited time we had together, I needed to get to the point and share the most important part and that is the message that as women and generally sensitive believers, we need to remember that God has a purpose with us and all that we experience. It is to grow us in Him and for the benefit of the whole Body in Christ. So I shared away about my journey as a Highly Sensitive person. I tried to encourage them that when life gets hard and world's noise is to much, we can turn to God for help and answers. He always answers us back in His time, but he does answer.
I could see God using my limited words to touch their hearts and that they identified with my story was for certain.
I hope that they left encouraged and filled with hope for the future.

To all who call upon Him in truth.
19 He will fulfil the desire of those who fear Him;
He also will hear their cry and save them.
20 The Lord preserves all who love Him...
As God vir jou 'n sensitiewe hart gegee het, dan is hierdie boodskap vandag vir jou. Hy begeer dat jy 'n heel hart die wêreld moet binne gaan en vir Hom leef. God se boodskap is: Vryheid gesetel in Sy verlossingswerk, vir almal wat in Hom glo. God wil hê ons moet voluit leef as die persoon wie Hy ons gemaak het om te wees: uniek en enig in ons soort met 'n unieke plan vir elkeen, wat presies in pas in Sy groter plan.
2. Kom ons vra die Here om ons te lei - Gebed:
Here, dankie dat ons hier bymekaar is. U Woord sê waar twee of meer in U Naam saam kom, daar is U met hulle. Sal U asseblief vandag die Spreker wees. Gebruik my woorde en blaas U lewe gewende krag daarin en wys ons U Wil, U Hart en U unieke plan vir elkeen van ons hier bymekaar.
In Jesus Christus se Naam
3. Die Vreugde van 'n Hoogsensitiewe verhouding met God
(Geneem en vertaal uit die website www.highlysensitivechristian.com, AUGUST 17, 2009)
3.1 Die moeilikheid met "anders" wees: Ek wil begin deur 'n konteks te skep vir die hoog sensitiewe hart binne die Liggaam van Christus.
3.2 Belê jou sensitiwiteite in die Hart van God.
Eerstens is die boodskap dus vandag: Geniet jou hoog sensitiwiteit! God se Woord bevestig dit:
4. Kom ons kyk verder wat sê die Woord oor sensitiwiteit en ons harte:
5. Don’t Let Your Hearts be Troubled
John 14:1 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me.”
6. The Lord Weighs the Heart
Proverbs 21:2 “Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the heart.”
7. God Knows the Heart
First Kings 8:39 “You know what is in everyone’s heart. So from your home in heaven answer their prayers, according to the way they live and what is in their hearts.”
8. Purify the Heart
Psalm 51:10 “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.”
9. Peace with God
Philippians 4:7 “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
10. Mending the Brokenhearted
Psalm 34:18 “The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
Wat beteken dit alles vir die sensitiewe hart? Na jare se swaarkry, seerkry en gebrokenheid, kan God vir jou 'n nuwe hart gee. Vertrou Hom hiervoor. Vra daarna en Hy sal jou hoor en antwoord. Hy het dit vir my gedoen. Hy sal dit ook vir jou doen.
