Where There Is Family, There Is Home – FGF Highlights, Wichita Falls, TX

This past weekend, I was with family I had never met before in Wichita Falls, Texas. Yep, it was Fresh Grounded Faith! Sister, it was like going home.

In Christ, we are brothers and sisters, and it was so obvious at this event. Let me just tell you two quick stories that proved this.

Can I Learn to Wait on God? [Episode 20 with Meredith Andrews]

When Phil and I had been married about a year, he was the Director of Student Life at Palm Beach Atlantic University. Part of his job was to oversee the student body’s formal banquets.

So, twice a year I had to squeeze some money from our tight budget to buy a formal dress—and, for the most recent event, I’d found a beautiful black dress at a bargain price.

A Thousand Little Blessings in Big Texas – FGF Highlights, Lubbock, TX

For Texas to be such a big place, it felt awfully small this weekend. Maybe it was because there were so many little blessings that made such a huge impact on my heart!

For example, I met Amy. She served as the professional counselor this weekend at Fresh Grounded Faith Lubbock. Oh my—I think I met my double!

Caffeine In the Water — FGF Highlights, Redding, CA

If I could sum up our last weekend of Fresh Grounded Faith for this Spring in one word, it would be ENERGY. Those Redding ladies were awesome, and I couldn’t ask for a better way to end this season. They were so creative! Each group wore something different to indicate who they were — the greeters wore pretty teal scarves, and the hostesses and drivers wore blinged out FGF baseball caps, etc. So fun!

Strawberry Fields Forever – FGF Highlights, Plant City, FL

Did you know that Plant City, FL is the winter strawberry capital of the world? I didn’t, but I do now! This weekend at Fresh Grounded Faith, we had strawberry everything — soap, cookies, afghans, rain boots, toboggans, shirts, earrings, bracelets, chocolate covered strawberries, strawberry shortcake…. I am sure you get my point! It was so fun!

And oh, sisters… it was such a great start to our spring season of Fresh Grounded Faith. God was so very present, all of the volunteers gave generously from their hearts, it was so well-organized, and you could practically feel how open to the Lord’s moving the entire audience was. So thankful.
