An Unexpected Silent Treatment – FGF Highlights, Little Rock, AR

When Meredith Andrews stepped on stage on Friday night of Fresh Grounded Faith Little Rock, she was in a tizzy of technical trouble! Her ear monitor wasn’t connected, and as she fiddled with it, she commented that there was a lady backstage who gave her the silent treatment when she asked for help. She wouldn’t help Meredith at all!

Well, I must admit, I was confused and so was the audience. We didn’t know what she was talking about until Saturday morning.

All Because of Jesus – FGF Highlights, Shreveport, LA

Let me tell you about my new friend, Maggie, who I met at Fresh Grounded Faith Shreveport. After I called her on stage, Maggie bounded up those stairs like a teenager and stood right beside me with a microphone as the audience cheered.

“Maggie?” I asked in front of the hundreds of women who filled Cypress Baptist Church, “How old are you?”

She turned and looked straight into the eyes of those eager women and said, “94!” And then she hooped and hollered, and so did everyone else.

I asked her how she did it. I wanted to know to what does she attribute her joy and vigor at the age of 94. And as you can imagine, every woman was listening intently.

Above and Beyond – FGF Highlights, Shelbyville, KY

The weekend started with high drama before any of us stepped on the stage at Shelby Christian Church. As final preparations were being made for the Fresh Grounded Faith conference, our Local Conference Coordinator, Evann Roberts, got an 8 mm kidney stone and had to have surgery!

So on Thursday, which was set up day for the conference, Evann went in for the procedure. She was released from the hospital around 11:00 a.m., but that woman is amazing! She and her mom, Kim—the pastor’s wife—picked up lunch for all of the volunteers and stayed at the church the rest of the day until our FGF National Conference Director, Terrie Bitter, left that evening.

We all showed up wearing masks and staying 6 feet away from each other but, girl, we all felt seen, known, and connected.

The Place Where Southern Hospitality Shines – FGF Highlights, Enterprise, AL

Did you know there’s a boll weevil monument in downtown Enterprise, Alabama? Friend, it’s true! And, this weekend at Fresh Grounded Faith, the sweet ladies of Enterprise told us all about it.

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!

Grace Poured Out – FGF Highlights, Indianapolis, IN

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!

Over a thousand women were worshipping, laughing, and learning together, and I loved every minute of it.
