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. And we at Fresh Grounded Faith got to watch Him work!
According to author Bill George, “True North is the internal compass that guides you successfully through life. It represents who you are as a human being at your deepest level.” We found True North in Fargo because we found Jesus there.

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.
We’ve got family everywhere when we’re in the family of God, right? And, that was so obvious at our first Fresh Grounded Faith event of the fall in Plant City, Florida. There were over 1,200 of us sisters all together worshipping, learning, and laughing.
This was our second time to be with these amazing women of Central Florida—including our wonderful local conference coordinator, Kay Morris. We are so very grateful to Kay and to our host church, First Baptist Church Plant City, along with our 11 co-host churches and all our fantastic volunteers.
Our best for Him. Those four words sum up Fresh Grounded Faith New Jersey!!

One of the amazing volunteers, Rob, used these words when he signed off on a text to me this past weekend. He represented just one of the 120 amazing people who poured out their lives in Wyckoff so that women could know the love of God and become rooted and grounded in that amazing love.
