This 1919 landmark was erected to show appreciation to the boll weevil. But you might be surprised to hear why! You see, this beetle—who likes to feast on cotton buds and flowers—had actually destroyed the people of Enterprise’s crops. But, this community didn’t give up!
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.
She came, she saw, and she was in awe! God was so good to us this weekend at Fresh Grounded Faith Springfield!

The theme was “She Can” and our verse was Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” We learned to speak the three hope confessions of “She Can” women and the three actions of a “She Can woman.” Wow is all I can say!
I not only taught the truth of Philippians 4:13 from the stage, but we also saw it on stage in my friends, Katherine Wolf and Sheila Walsh. Katherine taught us that the good things often are the hard things, and Sheila encouraged us to invite God into all areas of our lives—including our past and our shame.
