Yep, four of my favorite peeps showed up at our recent Fresh Grounded Faith Event in Waxahachie, Texas. Three of them are pictured here. My girlfriend Lysa TerKeurst, my beautiful daughter-in-law Caroline Rothschild, and my handsome son Clayton Rothschild. Not pictured — Jesus. And boy did He show up.
If you’ve never heard of Waxahachie, TX (commonly referred to as “Hachie” by locals), then you’re probably not alone. It’s a small little town and a southern suburb of Dallas, but that doesn’t stop them from doing things BIG. It’s true – they do everything “Big” in Texas, including Fresh Grounded Faith. God overwhelmed us by His amazing power to meet women where they were and not leave them there.
My sister in Christ, Lysa TerKeurst, is president of Proverbs 31 Ministries and the author of two amazing New York Times Bestselling books, Made to Crave and Unglued. She spoke so honestly about how we try to keep it all together (guilty). Yet, God is in control, so we need to leave it in His hands. Another great thrill was having our amazing worship leader, Dara Maclean, join us on the platform. She has written many songs that penetrate deep to the heart. It was such a blessing to know God was using all of us together; because together we’re better.
There were many highlights of the weekend and too many to mention all, but let me just share two that blessed my little heart (insert Texas accent here):

1.We had a group of 49 women come from Kirbyville, TX on a charted bus and guess what? This was their first women’s conference to ever attend! When I got to meet them, I found out that their pastor paid for them all to attend and also chartered a bus. Wow! I think that pastor loves Women’s Ministry and should be a spokesperson for others.
2. As a mama, the other blessing I received was having both of my sons, Clayton and Connor, there with my new daughter-in-law, Caroline. Caroline shared some time on the stage with me. I love that girl. She is an amazing young woman for Christ, and God is using her.
When it was time to leave, we headed to Waco for the night to spend time with family and rejoice in what God had done. Love Texas, love my peeps there.
