Toothless in Seattle – FGF Highlights, Port Orchard, WA

Have you ever been to Seattle? Girl, it’s stunning!! We had perfect weather, ate fish and chips on the pier, visited Starbucks’ headquarters, went to Pike Place Market, rode the ferry, and … went to the dentist.

Dentist? Yes.

Phil and I sat outside Pike Place Market, sipping Starbucks and nibbling on a cinnamon roll. Until one fatal bite changed everything.

Breakfast pizza! Yep—not pizza for breakfast, but actual breakfast pizza—is what we had Saturday morning this past weekend at Fresh Grounded Faith in O’Fallon, Illinois. Scrambled eggs, cheese, and bacon all on a glorious slice of heaven—it’s a St. Louis thing!

And then there was the Ooey Gooey Butter Cake! It’s another St. Louis tradition and it tastes just like it sounds—like biting into a sweet cloud of loveliness!

Buckeyes and Blessings – FGF Highlights, Columbus, OH

If you’ve ever been to Columbus, Ohio, then you know how much the ladies there love their state university. When you shout “O-H!”—they come back with a loud “I-O”! But that’s not all these sweet women are excited about. During last weekend’s Fresh Grounded Faith in Columbus, I experienced the even greater passion they have for the Lord.

All of the women were so cute and sweet, to say the least.

Everything about Elkhart was amazing, and some of it was a little crazy! A sold-out conference of sold-out women for the Lord!

We’re so grateful to First Baptist Church Elkhart and our nine co-host churches for hosting us. Senior Pastor Phil and Robin Byars of FBC Elkhart were so kind and hospitable. He opened the conference with a warm welcome, encouraging all of the women, and applauding the beautiful unity in the body of Christ.

Not a Whole Lot of Shaking Going On – FGF Highlights, Port Charlotte, FL

“What shakes you doesn’t have to break you. God can use it to make you unshakeable!” That’s how I began Fresh Grounded Faith Port Charlotte this past weekend. Oh girl, what a fantastic group of women showed up to Murdock Baptist Church in Port Charlotte!

We had fun and got into God’s Word. We talked about biblical habits that bring balance when our world feels wobbly and we learned practical ways to focus our faith when we feel unstable.
