I Wish They All Could Be California Girls – FGF Highlights, Fresno, CA

I don’t know if it was the fresh air, the fresh produce, or the fresh wind of the Holy Spirit, but these California girls were full of refreshing life and energy! They were so enthusiastic about coming together with their sisters in Christ, and it was inspiring to be with them!

We were all super grateful for their vibrant spirits because it gave us—the other speakers and myself—the energy we needed to minister that weekend, especially with the coast-to-coast time difference combined with some of the worst travel delays and reroutes ever!

You feel the grace. You feel the love. You feel like you’ve walked into a place where God is welcome and His presence is apparent in each person’s heart.

Well, that’s exactly what I felt at Grace Church this weekend as they hosted Fresh Grounded Faith St. Louis.

An Angel in Detroit – FGF Highlights, Flint, MI

I met an angel in a red car. Even if he wasn’t a real, bonafide, heavenly-being kind of angel, he was an angel—sent by God—for a heavenly mission!

Just one mile from the Detroit airport and one hour before our flight home from Fresh Grounded Faith Flint, our rental car began to shake. A loud scraping sound, like metal against asphalt, filled the interior of our minivan and panic began to rise! This was followed by the sound of shredded rubber flapping in the wind as my husband Phil maneuvered us onto the shoulder of the road.

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!
