Houston, We Had a Problem! – FGF Highlights, Houston, TX

Of course I had to refer to that most famous movie quote associated with the great city of Houston! Because, sister, we did have a problem. One big dark problem!

It was fun being with so many friends who have faithfully served during FGF over the years. And that includes our ministry team who got to be there too. I’m so grateful for these women who make all things Jennifer Rothschild Ministries work.

The theme this year was “Grace, Grace, Grace,” and that theme rang out long before the conference even began. When I arrived for the volunteer meet and greet, I could hear the volunteers collectively singing…

Living With Fresh Grounded Faith – FGF Highlights, Melbourne, FL

It was such a great weekend at Fresh Grounded Faith Melbourne. For this Florida girl, it was especially fun being with all my Florida friends. Even my high school English teacher was there! And since we were in Phil’s hometown, it was a treat to see a lot of his high school friends too.

There are so many things I could say about this weekend, but two attendees said it best in a Facebook post that was shared with my team.

After giving them a proper Texas “howdy,” I felt enveloped in love by those Texas women. Each of the 100 volunteers stepped up and showed off the goodness of God as they served with such joy.

Rich Generosity in Hattiesburg – FGF Highlights, Hattiesburg, MS

Fresh Grounded Faith Hattiesburg is a wrap, and what a weekend it was! I am paraphrasing what Paul said about the Macedonian Christians in 2 Corinthians 8:1-2 to describe the women in Hattiesburg:

“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)

The City of Sisterly Love – FGF Highlights, Philadelphia, PA

Philadelphia may be the “City of Brotherly Love,” but we were definitely in the city of sisterly love this past weekend. Such gracious and loving women with servant’s hearts—that’s how I would describe the volunteers at Fresh Grounded Faith Philadelphia.

Yet, those volunteers were just a sampling of the generous women who attended. I received so much encouragement, snacks, gifts, and over-the-top love from these women. Wow!
