Shiv Rapley explains how God laid Made for More on her heart and how it’s now helping Christian women socialise and fellowship.

Something special happens when ladies have a safe space to connect and do life together, writes Shiv Rapley (inset in the picture above).

I’ve always found great joy in women’s gatherings, and this is how Made for More (MFM) was birthed! I’m passionate about event planning in general, and building godly connections with women specifically, and I felt led to combine the two.

In fact, MFM was founded after a season of prayer and asking the Lord, “What next?” MFM curates monthly events for Christian women to get together, socialise, encourage sisterhood, accountability, prayer, and fellowship inside and outside of church.

When God laid MFM on my heart, I was scared to step out and do something new.

I was worried nobody would come or be interested! After seeking God and reaching out to several women, I asked what sort of things they’d like to try, events they’d choose to attend and topics they’d appreciate being covered.

The response was so encouraging, I thought, “Why didn’t I start sooner?” I coordinate an annual youth conference called Girl Talk for teens and their youth leaders.
