God Rescued Hearts – FGF Highlights, Augusta, GA

Girl, I’ve got Georgia on my mind! It was wonderful being back in Augusta last weekend for another Fresh Grounded Faith event. I’m telling you, these southern sisters were on fire for the second year in a row!

As the doors opened on Friday evening, one of the women entered with a t-shirt that read, “He left the 99 to rescue me” (Matthew 18:12). What a fitting verse this turned out to be!

Did you know there’s a boll weevil monument in downtown Enterprise, Alabama? Friend, it’s true! And, this weekend at Fresh Grounded Faith, the sweet ladies of Enterprise told us all about it.

This 1919 landmark was erected to show appreciation to the boll weevil. But you might be surprised to hear why! You see, this beetle—who likes to feast on cotton buds and flowers—had actually destroyed the people of Enterprise’s crops. But, this community didn’t give up!

Something to Celebrate – FGF Highlights, Bossier City, LA

Friday, November 22, was a historic day for several reasons. John F. Kennedy died that day in 1963. C.S. Lewis also died that day in 1963. And, in 1963, on that same day, my husband, Phil Rothschild, was born!

So, we celebrated his birthday in Bossier City along with 800 of our newest friends at Fresh Grounded Faith. The whole weekend was a celebration of God’s faithfulness.

Warm Hearts – FGF Highlights, West Michigan

The ground was covered with snow when we landed in Grand Rapids for Fresh Grounded Faith. Winter decided to show up early and crash our party!

But we barely noticed the cold temps because the hearts of the women were so warm. It was a sold-out conference with every seat full!

There’s No Place Like Home – FGF Highlights, Springfield, MO

You know that feeling you get when you’re with family? You belong. You’re safe. You’re accepted and loved.

Well, that may not all be totally true about how you feel when you’re with family because you may have a tricky, prickly family dynamic. But, it is totally 100% true when you’re with the family of God. And, that’s what it felt like this past weekend at Fresh Grounded Faith Springfield.
