A big shout out to all my new friends in Fort Smith, Arkansas. The Outside of Ordinary team had a great time at the Live it Up Conference. 175 women gathered on a Saturday morning to worship, laugh, learn, cry a little, laugh more and have some serious Jesus time. Kudos to the All-Girl worship band that worked hard and did great (and were incredibly patient with moi). We discovered that God’s got a plan, His plan is perfect, and His plan is in place…we learned that not only do we need to “get in the water” but we need to depend on the Holy Spirit if we’re going to dive deep and we learned that there is ALWAYS another side to any obstacle. To recap we can just say “He’s the God of Amazing”.
The day started with registration and the first 100 women getting a free gift – we love free stuff! The women of Central Christian Church welcomed everyone with homemade goodies, fruit and coffee. Amped up on sugar and caffeine, we worshiped and dove into everything God had for us. Let’s not forget the “minute to win it” games for door prizes (more free stuff-woohoo) in which I lost my “Champion of the Kleenex box Shake” title to a mother of 3. We obviously had tons of fun but we left encouraged and full of the promises of God. We all need a day like that once in awhile.
I hope you’ll join us at our next event – stay tuned for more details. Patti Beth Anderson, Susie Niehus and I would LOVE to come and share the fun at YOUR church. Please reach out and learn how we can make that happen. Meanwhile – take a gander at our celebration of hope.
What was your favorite moment of the day? I would love to hear from you below in the comment section!
