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.

Not a Whole Lot of Shaking Going On – FGF Highlights, Port Charlotte, FL

“What shakes you doesn’t have to break you. God can use it to make you unshakeable!” That’s how I began Fresh Grounded Faith Port Charlotte this past weekend. Oh girl, what a fantastic group of women showed up to Murdock Baptist Church in Port Charlotte!

We had fun and got into God’s Word. We talked about biblical habits that bring balance when our world feels wobbly and we learned practical ways to focus our faith when we feel unstable.

I opened the weekend with the phrase, “You are safe with the Shepherd because He’s got your back, He guides your steps and He’s on your team.” 

Little Rock Rocked (Again!) – FGF Highlights, Little Rock, AR

We were so excited to be invited back to The Church at Rock Creek for another Fresh Grounded Faith last weekend! What a fun, kind, gracious group of ladies!

It was like seeing old friends again. Shannon Calhoun did another beautiful job this year as our Local Conference Coordinator, and the volunteers and eight co-host churches were such servants. Thank you all so very much.

And the friends who came with me! Such a fun group…

Women On Fire — FGF Highlights, Las Cruces, NM

In most cities, fluoride flows through the city water system. But, in Las Cruces, I think the water is caffeinated!! These Fresh Grounded women were on fire! They came from Texas, Arizona and all over New Mexico — different ages, different races, different denominations… but one thing in common… these women were full of the love of God!


Sparks were already flying when Liz Curtis Higgs and I arrived at the church. We were greeted by cheers, hoots and hollers from over 170 volunteers who were gathered just outside the sanctuary.
