Overview

A true story of restored hope and God’s unwavering faithfulness.

In “The Rhode to Zimkesalia” Cathy tells her story of being born in Rhode-sia and living a life that became tainted with fear, failure and loss.

Her journey of life moving through Zim-babwe, Ke-nya, S-outh A-frica and Austra-lia, (hence the name Zimkesalia) is a testimony of God's unwavering faithfulness and her faith in God who upheld her through upheaval, insecurities, guilt and pain.

Growing up in a country at war, where fear, family illness, loneliness, insecurity, death and change caused enormous grief, Cathy tells the account of her struggle through those experiences, interwoven with the faithfulness of God and her faith in Him.

It's a story of hope and restoration, of healing out of brokenness, victory over grief and how God’s amazing grace, love, peace and comfort has brought freedom to her life.

Cathy explores the inadequacies, insecurities and survival methods that many of us grow up with as a result of our life experiences.

She tells of how she survived, how she coped and how she failed throughout those difficult times and shares the lessons she learned along the way.

Cathy gives hope to others who are struggling with tough experiences and suggests tools which worked for her and which have led to her not only surviving life, but coming to a place of thriving and living to the full in a place of freedom and flourishing.

She has written from a place of vulnerability and honesty and aims to encourage and point the reader to a life of hope and joy.
