Rich Generosity in Hattiesburg – FGF Highlights, Hattiesburg, MS

Fresh Grounded Faith Hattiesburg is a wrap, and what a weekend it was! I am paraphrasing what Paul said about the Macedonian Christians in 2 Corinthians 8:1-2 to describe the women in Hattiesburg:

She Stayed and Prayed – FGF Highlights, Topeka, KS

Fellowship Bible Church was buzzing with joy when I arrived for Fresh Grounded Faith Topeka on Friday night. I met lots of eager and encouraging women, but I gotta say, one woman stood out to me right away…

Her name was Liesa, and she told me she had been praying and was planning to stay in that church all night on Friday to keep praying. So, when Terrie Bitter, our National Conference Director, arrived at the church early on Saturday morning, she ran into a very tired Liesa.

Strawberry Fields Forever – FGF Highlights, Plant City, FL

Did you know that Plant City, FL is the winter strawberry capital of the world? I didn’t, but I do now! This weekend at Fresh Grounded Faith, we had strawberry everything — soap, cookies, afghans, rain boots, toboggans, shirts, earrings, bracelets, chocolate covered strawberries, strawberry shortcake…. I am sure you get my point! It was so fun!

And oh, sisters… it was such a great start to our spring season of Fresh Grounded Faith. God was so very present, all of the volunteers gave generously from their hearts, it was so well-organized, and you could practically feel how open to the Lord’s moving the entire audience was. So thankful.

I Wish We All Could Be California Girls – FGF Highlights, Yorba Linda, CA

Yes, I wish I could be one of those California girls we hung out with last weekend at Fresh Grounded Faith – Yorba Linda! What a great, fun, gracious, loving, warm, beautiful group of women who gathered at The Friends Church for a jam-packed weekend of wonderfulness!

Buckeyes and Blessings – FGF Highlights, Centerville, Ohio

“Careful, Jennifer… there’s a lady in front of you!”

That’s what Christie called out from right behind me as we climbed up the moving escalator. Christie said, “She’s blind and determined, so watch out!” as she scaled the stairs just a step behind me.

The lady just laughed a nervous laugh and probably went home and told her family, “You won’t believe what I saw on the escalator today in Atlanta… a crazy blind woman with a white cane running up the escalator while the sane, sighted people just stood there.”
