What do you get when you put me, Annie F. Downs, Tammy Trent, and Shaun Groves together at a bistro table in Texas? You get the craziest, most fun, deep, and inspiring conversation ever!
These crazy friends joined me in Fort Worth for a Fresh Grounded Faith event, and at the end of the conference, we got to be both silly and serious as we answered questions from the audience.

It’s Thanksgiving! This wonderful holiday begs us to recognize life’s blessings – both big and small.
There are some extraordinarily ordinary things I am thankful for, so I thought I would share part of my list with you. I hope you will share part of your extraordinarily ordinary grateful list with me too!
