We are coming to you LIVE from a Fresh Grounded Faith event in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, and we’re spilling some beans with author Angela Thomas Pharr and singer-songwriter Meredith Andrews.
Angela talks about being a single mom of five kids and what it was like for her new husband to become an instant dad. She also gives her best advice for single moms, and sister, it’s not what you may think. You’re going to love it!

“Now I want you to know, dear brothers and sisters, what God in His kindness has done through the churches in Hattiesburg … they are filled with abundant joy, which has overflowed in rich generosity.” (My paraphrase of NLT)
We’re spilling some beans on the podcast today, and we’re doing it from Little Rock, Arkansas, where we recently had a Fresh Grounded Faith conference.
Author and Bible teacher, Kelly Minter, and award-winning recording artist, Meredith Andrews, joined me at the event. And during our Q&A, they gave such insightful and compassionate answers to some really great questions from the audience.
You’ll hear my answer when I was asked if I could see when I dream. Kelly and Meredith addressed two hard questions about how to deal with silence from God and how to know your purpose in life. And Kelly talked about fitting in as a single woman in the church.
Fellowship Bible Church was buzzing with joy when I arrived for Fresh Grounded Faith Topeka on Friday night. I met lots of eager and encouraging women, but I gotta say, one woman stood out to me right away…
Her name was Liesa, and she told me she had been praying and was planning to stay in that church all night on Friday to keep praying. So, when Terrie Bitter, our National Conference Director, arrived at the church early on Saturday morning, she ran into a very tired Liesa.
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!
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.
