As I sit, reflecting on an action-packed weekend, my heart is overflowing with gratitude for all of the bold (as well as subtle) reminders of how God is at work in and around me.

For the past few months, I (along with my mom and sister) have been planning to host a Priscilla Shirer simulcast event at my church.  We were so excited to welcome the ladies joining us for the simulcast this past Saturday.  The worship, led by Priscilla’s brother Anthony Evans, was spirit-filled and uplifting.  The Word that Priscilla brought impacted me so deeply that it will take quite some time to process it all.  I felt God whisper to me…

Being with other women is life-giving…

There is safety in My presence…

Feeding your own soul spiritually is vital to your relationship with Me…

I want to be part of EVERY aspect of your life.

After the simulcast concluded, I helped my son pack his final things for his senior class mission trip.  Early yesterday morning, we sent him off to serve in Belize. For the next week, he (and his classmates and chaperones) will run a VBS and Easter Egg Hunt for a local school there in Belize.  This year has been filled with moments of letting him go and this one was a big one!  Sending my firstborn on his first international mission trip was a huge deal for me, but I know that (1) he’s ready, (2) he’ll enjoy being with his classmates, and (3) he is so capable of helping to run the VBS and egg hunt.  I’m so proud of him and the ways God is shaping is life.  I felt God whisper to me…

You love him but I love him more…

Each season of his life will be filled with exciting and teachable moments…let him go…

All of the ways you and Lance have raised him have prepared him for this moment.

As if that wasn’t enough, my new Associate Director of Children’s Ministry was commissioned for service yesterday.  I am so thankful for her and the energy, gifts and passion she brings to the team.  I cannot wait to see all that God will do through her ministry to our children, families and volunteers!  I felt God whisper to me…

I am faithful…

I heard your prayers for many, many months.  My timing is perfect…

Cherish her, mentor her, do life with her.  She is more than your co-worker.

And last but not least, five children in our ministry celebrated their First Communion yesterday.  For the past three weeks, these children (plus an additional one whose First Communion will take place later this spring) have learned what Communion is, why we take it and how to personally reflect before taking it.  As I watched those precious children partake of the elements, I felt God whisper to me…

What you do matters…

What you train and equip others to do matters…

You are impacting my Kingdom for eternity…

This is the call I have placed on your life.

The prayers I have prayed in recent weeks have been some of the most heartfelt I’ve ever prayed.  I have seen God’s spirit move in mighty ways.  For that, my heart is grateful.

What are you grateful for today?
