About

Thanks for visiting my blog. Welcome :)

My hope with the writing and photos here is to encourage those who stop by in their faith. I also hope it might bring a smile to God’s face in some way as I share about His goodness and His love and what He means to me.

A little about me is that I’m married to Michael, and we’re both from New Zealand, and love calling London home. I’m a post-graduate student, in the field of Christian Spirituality.

‘May the LORD smile on you and be gracious to you’ ~ Numbers 6:25.

  7. Dear Birg,
    Reading your blog takes me back to years at school when we made time to talk about our spirituality, the role of God in our lives and the way Christianity impacts on everything we do. It is wonderful to see that you have never stopped making these tenets central to your life. I have been guilty of allowing other projects to distract me, but now and then I ask myself ‘what will my contribution be? How will I make a positive difference to this world?’
    Your energy and vision have reminded me of that incredibly important part of my life that I so long to re-awaken. I will tune in often to your site to seek inspiration.
    God Bless

  16. Hello! My name is Patrik. I´m married with Eija. I´m 38 years old. Can you please encourage me how I shall read Gods word? I´m longing for to grow and recieve that character that the Lord wants for me. That I shall be a true friend to the Lord, and that I might walk in His obedience. I want to change and recieve a ear that hear, a heart that is obedient. I want to be humble before the Lord. I would be encouraged if you could prophecy wich call I have. I would like to be a man of God that always hears Gods word. I want that the bible shall be a reality for me. I want that my heart shall beat like the Fathers heart.

    Thank you for your ministry

    God bless you and your family.

  27. Hi Pankaj, Thank you so much for this lovely comment and for stopping by. Thank you too for your kind invitation to meet if ever we visit India. With every blessing to you and your wife, Birgit.

  28. Hi Birgit, may I correspond privately wit you about a family member who is into Paganism. Heard your witness on Christian channel Revelation or Genesis. Can’t remember which one. It gave me such hope for family member.

  29. Hi Janet, thanks for getting in touch. I’ll send you an email, bless you.

  30. I beg your pardon for my English much bad. My name his Michele (Michael) and I live in Messina-Sicily-Italy and I inquired about sister Marie Monsen, so in internet, I found your blog. Tank you for the photo of the Marie’s headstone. I know an other history they are very much alike. A brother in Christ, missionary in Mexico, one day, he heard the Lord’s voice:” I send you in Italy”. So he went in Italy and preached the gospel and about in 30 years the Lord saved through him more than 2,300 people and he open 6 cherchs in Messina. To him death for a time, not either had a head stone. Some cristians maKe this for him. I remember the Jesus’s head stone: No the apostles, but Joseph of Arimathea & Nicodemus, two believers seemingly carelessly in the Gospel…

  31. Michele, it is lovely to hear from you, thank you so much for going to the effort of writing in English. What an amazing story about the missionary from Mexico who was led by God to go to Italy to preach the gospel. And that through this man’s faithfulness to God, so many people came to know Jesus. It is a wonderful testimony, thank you for sharing it. Many blessings to you.

  32. Do you have an email address I can write to Birgit.
    I’ve contacted Rev TV they have given me this site but there does not seem to be a proper email address as such?
    I’ve written an email but it’s far to long for this message box.

  33. Hi Peter, thanks so much for your contact, I’ll follow up with an email,God bless.

  34. My friend birgit, your blog has reached many hearts in the last 2 and a bit years.I believe God is smiling over your life. For God’s purposes: Persevere and pray, since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. I pray the fruit of the Spirit to continue to grow – love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. (Gal5:22-24)
    Love you

  35. Just seen you on Revelation TV and Oh My Word you are BEAUTIFUL!!

    Your probably married or something; but when you see something SO lovely, you’ve got to tell someone!! Your lovely inside and out!! RADIANT!! And people will see it!!

  36. Hi Birgit, I have just watched a TV programme, both seeing and haering you for the first time. From what I heard of you today, you truly are an inspiration to people. You spoke of the occult: this confuses me a lot. Why? because [some celebrity psychics], would never ever mention anything to anyone other than love and reassurance. If you have an e.mail address and you are happy for me to contact you, I would be most greatfull for that.

    Ron…..Surrey ..(ex NZ)

  37. Dearest Des, thank you for this, and for your prayer, I love you too, you are a precious friend xo

    Hi Chris and Ron, thank you so much to you both for stopping by, and for your really kind encouragement. That’s wonderful that you’re able to watch the programmes on Revelation TV, and I hope they continue to bless you both. Lots of blessings.
    P.S. Ron – I’ll follow up with an email to you and your wife. God bless.

  38. Hi Birgit, I watched you on Genesis TV interviewing Betty Bourke of the Good News Bible Book Shop. I was absolutely fascinated with the show, and learned a lot about prayer from both of you. You both really inspired me. I immediately wanted to know more about you. I was thrilled to find your web site. (I am being trained at Genesis TV – you are streets ahead of me! I will keep watching you for inspiration, and do very much hope to meet you some time soon!) With warmest wishes, Richard(Kent)

  39. Hi Richard, it’s lovely to hear from you, and thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind encouragement. That’s wonderful that you were able to watch the interview with Betty, and that you felt encouraged by it. I loved hearing the stories Betty shared about being prompted by the Holy Spirit to pray for people in different situations, and then seeing the power of God heal people, and minister. It really was amazing. All the very best for your training, I look forward to watching your interviews too :) With every blessing to you and
    your family, Birgit.

  40. HI Birgit
    Thank you so much for today, you have such a gentle and encouraging spirit. You have truly blessed me

  41. Dear Tina, it really was so good today, thank you so much for sharing your testimony, which is so inspiring. How awesome to know our God passionately loves us, and desires us to experience this love, and His goodness in our lives. I so look forward to more opportunities together in the future, with every blessing to you xo

  42. Birgit, can I tell you about the Christian Dance Fellowship of Britain. There is also the International Christian Dance Fellowship.
    They praise God using dance, often using colourful flags and ribbons. This is Biblical as Psalms tells us to praise God with music and dance. This is a lovely way to worship and children love it too. It can be used to illustrate a Bible story. Of course we dress respectfully in trousers of long skirts. Visit: http://www.cdfb.org.uk

  43. Hi Ann, Thanks so much for stopping by and for letting me know about the Christian Dance Fellowship of Britain. I love this idea of worshipping God through all forms of creativity and art. I look forward to looking at the website.
    Many blessings to you,
    Birgit.

  44. HI Birgit, was unable to listen to your Premier Radio interview on Saturday, the internet at home stopped working and I haven’t been able to tune the stereo in yet :( I trust God blessed you richly and those who listened to you.
    God bless

  45. Hi Tina, Thanks so much, I really had such a wonderful time, and Tony and I had lots to talk about in this whole area of exercise addiction and body image. I notice that you’ve now found the link to listen to this on the Premier Radio Archive. Just in case anyone reading this would also like to listen, click on this link and scroll down to the comments to get the link to the interview :) – https://birgitwhelan.com/2010/01/15/radio-interview-body-image/
    Lots of blessings to you xo

  49. That’s so great Freya, thanks so much for letting me know, I look forward to visiting :) love Birgit.

  50. Birgit, the other day when you were on “she matters” Jane Parks mentioned that you went to bible college. I was wondering which bible college you attended and how you found it. Was it really hard work. Did you already have an understanding of the bible or were you starting totally afresh. Was it really expensive and did you actually have to physically go or was it distant learning? I would love to know the bible better and enjoy the monday night bible study on revelation each week.
    With love, freya xxx

  51. Hi Freya, Thanks so much for your interest and questions here, and sorry it’s taken me a while to come back. It would be best for me to email you in reply, which I will follow up with, take care, God bless xo

  59. Birgit,
    I finally found you! (Thanks to other about.me user…)
    So you’re married… Oh, it’s OK.
    I just would like you to know that your photos (found on your about.me page) are very impressive for me. Actually, they look very similar to the pictures I like to take: landscapes, close nature, sunshines… I found also many photos from inside churches (or something like that) that didn’t hurt my conscience at all!
    Well, if you wish, have a look at a few photos of mine at:

    Cheers!
    Christian
