The Sweetest Thing in Tennessee – FGF Highlights

Fresh Grounded Faith is a wrap!

We finished strong and sweet in Clinton, Tennessee this past weekend. And, what a way to finish for the spring!

Those East Tennessee women were the best! I used to think the tea was the sweetest thing in Tennessee until I met those women! We came to minister to them, but, I think they ministered to us even more!

Burdens were Lifted in Blountville – FGF Highlights

“What burden did you bring to the conference and how can we pray for you?”

That was one of the questions during Spill the Beans in Blountville, Tennessee this past weekend.

If you’ve never been to an FGF, you may not know that not only do we give the sisters a venti size portion of fresh grounded truth, but we also find out what they want to know. We ask them to write down their questions and, then, we sit around the bistro table and answer… We spill the beans!

She Said She Never Should’ve Come [FGF Highlights]

She had a hard time walking. She was winded when she made it into the conference and said “I knew it. I never should’ve come.”

But she made it in and found her seat. Fresh Grounded Faith began with Michael O’Brien filling the room with praise.

It was hard for her to sing along because she was short of breath. She didn’t want to stand because her legs were  weak. But, she stood and sang.

FGF Prestonwood Highlights: Felt Like Coming Home

Last week we had a Fresh Grounded Faith conference in Plano, Texas at Prestonwood Baptist Church. And, being there almost felt like coming home in a way.

I didn’t realize it before going, but so many old friends were at the conference! We saw friends from our college days at Palm Beach Atlantic University and friends from our years of ministry when we lived in Florida as newlyweds. Somehow they all seemed to end up in Dallas! ha! Isn’t it neat how God interweaves our stories and let’s our paths cross?

FGF Highlights: Sermons Don’t Change Lives

“Sermons don’t change your life, sentences do.”  That’s what my pastor, John Marshall, says. Great thought, huh? He heard it from another pastor, shared it with us, and now I’m sharing it with you!

I also shared that phrase both Friday night and Saturday morning with the 1300 women gathered at Fresh Grounded Faith Lubbock last weekend.

I challenged them to listen for just one sentence in my messages and Lysa TerKeurst’s messages – just one sentence that God could use to change them.

The result was so inspiring.  Women shared with me sentence after sentence God had written on their hearts and I was so, so grateful and inspired. Isn’t it neat how God speaks to each of us individually in different ways? And, our worship leader Michael O’Brien also offered up some great sentences too that really stuck with me.

So…wanna hear some of them?
