Born to Bloom

Whoo Hoo!

I am home! For 11 days 🙂

My next trip takes me off to Grand Rapids, Mi to pray and plan and party with the amazing team of women who are hosting our upcoming “Imagine me…Set Free” Woman’s Conference on October 7 and 8th.

We are planning for 400 women! Do you want to be one of them?

Read on…..

I honestly have so much to share with friends here on “Living Free” that I don’t even know where to start. The tough part is, after being away from my office since July 10th I have so much work/email back-up I don’t have much time to tarry on the blog for a few days. In spite of the stack of work that is calling my name, I have to give you a tiny taste of some fun stuff I have coming your way.

First of all—I have TON’S of books and goodies to give away that I brought home from the International Christian Retail Show.


I have a stack of FRESH, NEW just published books, most personally autographed, on my dining room table ready to be mailed. At least half of them are brand new FICTION titles from many of your very favorite authors. Like this fabulous lady…..

I grabbed a fresh copy of Liz Curtis Higg’s latest fiction Mine is the Night. It is  on my nightstand right now. It has been with me from Georgia to California over the past few weeks. I am reading until I can’t keep my eyes open each night. It is awesome!! I have another one for one lucky reader 🙂

And, THIS ONE from my sweet friend Pam Farrell. 52 Ways to Wow Your Husband. Her books always challenge and inspire me.

Also, coming soon, my darling “little sister” Renee Swope is going to guest blog for me next week and give away 2 copies of her new book A Confident Heart.

I got to read the book before it went to print–YOU MUST READ THIS ONE!!


I promise, I will get to that give-away soon but for now..for the next few weeks, my give-away focus is a FREE—FREEDOM WEEKEND!

All you have to do is say Hi here on the blog. Do it! Right now!! It is so easy, just tap on the comment button below. Tell me you want to come and if you don’t have a blog–don’t forget to leave your email address!

Tell us you want to join a few hundred women for a weekend alone with God! It is truly amazing how he does that isn’t it 🙂

Here is a testimony from our last “Imagine Me…Set Free” in Ruidoso, New Mexico that JUST CAME in my email today! I’m blessed afresh!!

“Pat, I planted the sunflower seeds that you gave us in Ruidoso this Spring as soon as I got home. Look at this! Amazing fruit of your conference!

Bless you”

Debby Pardue

You bless my heart bloggy sisters. Today I pray Isaiah 59:21 for you and YOUR CHILDREN and Children’s children!!

Our God is Good. All the time!

    An inspirational book.. Awsome..

    oh to finish being set free from all the rest of what is in me.. would be so good for all. I have been freed of so much in the past 2 months. God is working overtime in my life right now.
