Freedom Weekend

Hey girls, when was the last time you sang into a hairbrush or jumped up and down on a mattress?

How about laughed until you cried or worshipped God until you just sank into a puddle of praise??

Maybe, stayed up through the night, until the sun came up in the early morning,m talking and sharing with girlfriends??

Maybe mined God’s Word for some fresh truth and thirst quenching living water??

Maybe you are way past due??

Trust me, it is worth the investment in time and treasures!!

I think this may have been my longest stretch away from blogging in quite a while. Sometimes God has other plans for my attention.

The past 2 weeks have been like that. After hanging out with my friend Lysa Terkeurst and her right hand sweetheart, Holly for 3 days here in sunny Tampa, I headed for the beautiful Rocky Mountains.

THAT was an easy diversion. I love the snow!! I love fireplaces that burn all day and night! I love to see deer on the lawn when I wake up in the morning! Unfortunately, I forgot my camera this trip so I just have a few not so great I-Phone shots.

For 5 sweet days last week, I enjoyed one of the “set apart” times that I take twice each year. I was blessed to spend these precious days with some treasured friends in worship, prayer and seeking God for all of the download that He wanted to bless us with. He showed up in a such BIG way! I came home full of new vision and ready to overflow! Mercy me!

Since my return home, I have been pulling together my final keynote preparations for “Imagine Me…Set Free”, an event that God has been building in my heart for over a year!! I am getting so excited I am close to hyperventilating with anticipation and expectation!


Maybe this retreat would be a good “Set Apart” time for you?? It is going to be held at “The Cove” in Asheville, NC in just a few weeks. I promise you that God WILL show up! You will laugh. You will sing. You will have some great girl time! You will be refreshed!

Hairbrushes will be provided!!

I would love to see you there and will have a special treat for you if you tell me you came because you have a relentless desire to sing into a hairbrush!

Register at the the Mecklenburg website or to get more info on this fun FREEDOM WEEKEND at “Imagine Me…Set Free” check out my website.

Truly… I can barely think straight,

can barely think straight,

can barely think straight!!!!

Are you FREE to be there???
