Are you an introvert or an extrovert? What do you do to unwind? What’s your favorite smell or sound?

These are just a few of the questions we were asked as we sat around the bistro table in Plant City, Florida at a Fresh Grounded Faith event.

Author and podcaster Annie F. Downs and singer-songwriter Laura Story were with me, and these women gave so much insight and inspiration when we spilled the beans.

What do you get when you put me, Annie F. Downs, Tammy Trent, and Shaun Groves together at a bistro table in Texas? You get the craziest, most fun, deep, and inspiring conversation ever!

These crazy friends joined me in Fort Worth for a Fresh Grounded Faith event, and at the end of the conference, we got to be both silly and serious as we answered questions from the audience.

We talked about how to deal with loneliness, how to let go of hurts and disappointments, and how to find fulfillment in the monotony of everyday life.

Georgia on My Mind – FGF Highlights, Cumming, GA

Who sang that great old song, “Just an old sweet song keeps Georgia on my mind”? When I got home from Fresh Grounded Faith Cumming, that song came to mind as I kept reminiscing about the weekend.
