That’s the take-away truth we celebrated last weekend in Springfield, Missouri, at Fresh Grounded Faith. We gathered for two back-to-back identical events to learn from Isaiah 40 what it means to be strong.
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!
Now, you might assume that one of the fringe benefits of blindness is that I can’t tell when I’m having a bad hair day. Not so! I don’t have to see my hair in the mirror to know that it looks ugly—I can feel it!
And, as I was preparing to speak at a local women’s event one day, I was feeling it! I knew my hair looked bad.
“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.
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…
