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!
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.
The grace of our Lord was poured out on us in Indianapolis this past weekend. He came to Indy to seek and to save that which was lost, drawing women to Himself, releasing children from poverty, and sharing His great love with women who may have never felt it.

His joy was obvious in every woman who attended. His servant’s heart showed up in each one of the 144 volunteers. His compassion was evident in Local Conference Coordinators, Judy Siegle and Kathy Spriggs, as they worked tirelessly for months leading up the FGF weekend.
Nehemiah 8:10 says that the joy of the Lord is our strength. Well, since that is true, let me just say that there were some mighty strong women at Fresh Grounded Faith Chino!

The air was buzzing with enthusiasm when I walked into CrossPoint Church to meet the 168 volunteers who were helping us pull off this Kingdom-minded event. Before we even got started on Friday night, I just knew that the Lord was already moving because His joy in these women was so obvious.
