3ish things


Friday Night Games

This past weekend was the second annual Glory Gals Retreat . I’m honored that God has chosen me to play the role of organizer for it. As I was finishing the last bit of packing equipment up and getting it loaded into the truck, the director of the facility that is used asked me a great question. What were three things I learned from the weekend.

GULP – ummm ahhhh I had to think about that. It’d been such a busy weekend I hadn’t taken the time to ponder. So I sat down and thought about it.

Here’s what I came up with: Continue reading


He woke me up!

coversI’m awake…I look over at my phone for the time…4:43am. I want to close my eyes and go back to sleep, but I know if I attempt it, I’ll just toss and turn and wish I was asleep. So I take a moment to listen to the quite house. Pull my phone under the covers to hide the light from my sleeping husband, and open up  Continue reading

One of my favorite parts of organizing Glory Gals is watching God stretch people. This is especially true of the people I ask (thru his guidance) to be leaders and keynote speakers.

Today was a day of stretching – and I got to be the taffy puller instead of the taffy! Over the past couple of weeks Continue reading

Reflection on a Retreat

IMG_6672It’s a question I’m being asked quite a bit over the last two weeks – “how was the Glory Gals Retreat?”. My short answer – AMAZING

The longer answer…starts with WOW – I’ll start with a little disclaimer – I don’t feel the verbal (or written in this case) language has the proper tools to explain how incredible my heart feels having gone thru this process. So here’s my best go at it.

Positive and Glorious

zigI was perusing Facebook today while one of our syndicated programs played (Focus on the Family) and I found this graphic posted on Zig Zigler’s page on Facebook.
It stopped me in my scrolling tracks and I started thinking about how amazing God has been in my life these past few months. God has been providing so many wonderful things thru the Glory Gals Retreat I’m putting together (with an amazing crew of volunteers). Some of it has been hard and definitely challenging. There have been times Continue reading
