Women of Faith will fill the American Airlines arena in Dallas on October 2-3, 2015. And I want you to come with me!
The group ticket rep said they are expecting the largest attendance in the 20 year history of the organization. So, I could only get a small group of tickets and may not be able to get more. But the good news is, you can claim your spot now and get better seats for less money than if you booked on your own. Plus, we’ll have a lot more fun together, don’t you think?
Not familiar with Women of Faith? Check out this quick video to see what the excitement is all about…
Looks fun, doesn’t it.
GET MORE INFO AND CLAIM YOUR SPOT!
You can even order your box lunch for Saturday when you order your ticket.
Don’t wait, these tickets will go very fast and I may not be able to get more.
(If I sell out, I will try to get more tickets for our group; and if I succeed I will issue those in the order people signed up for the waiting list.)
Deadline to order is next Tuesday (August 4) at 5:00 pm but I’m pretty sure they will be gone by then. So call your friends and claim your spots now!
I would love for you to tune in on Saturday, January 3, when I join Evelyn Davison and Cathy Endebrock on the radio show, Love Talk. The Show airs at 9:00 am and again on Sunday at 3:00 pm. We will be talking about how to have a GOOD START – perfect for the start of a new year!
If you live in the Central Texas area (New Braunfels to Waco) you can tune in at 1120 AM. If you’re outside that area, they broadcast worldwide via the live stream on their app or website. You can download the app via your app store (search for 1120 AM The Bridge).

If you’re in the Georgetown area this Friday evening, stop by the Christmas Stroll on the Square downtown and visit me in the Toy Shop of Bethlehem Village. Meander through the streets of Bethlehem and connect with the reason for the season! This is a photo of my son Justin with me at the Toy Shop from a previous year. I love this event. Be sure and stay for the Nativity play which runs every 15 minutes or so. We will be there Friday, December 5, from 6:00 until 9:00 pm. I’d love to see you!
This week marks one year since I launched Making It Real Ministries. It has been an adventure and I’ve learned much. As I reflect on this past year and the lessons learned, I am deeply appreciative for all God has done. I’ve had a front row seat to observe his strength demonstrated through my weakness. (see 2 Corinthians 12:9)
I’ve been humbled to see him touch the lives of hurting people. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting so many wonderful people. All in all, I’m so glad I said yes and stepped out on faith to answer what I perceived to be his call.

While the following lessons were learned from my journey this past year, I doubt they are unique to me. I would love to hear how you see these same truths evidenced in your own life or to hear what lessons God has taught you lately.

Come Join Me Saturday for Beth Moore Simulcast!
This Saturday, Beth Moore’s Living Proof Live event will be simulcast across the country. My church is one of only three in the Austin, Texas area offering the simulcast. I will be at the event and would love to worship and study the Word alongside you and your friends. I’ll be staffing the Bible Study Registration table all day, so I will be easy to find. Please stop by and say hello!
Click on the image below to register via the Women’s Ministry page of Main Street Baptist Church’s website (scroll down to bottom of page).
The event is FREE, though we will be taking a love offering to help cover expenses.
You can come on your own or invite some friends to join you. We will be taking a break for lunch and the church is located just off the beautiful, historic town square of Georgetown. There are cute shops and restaurants, so plan to make a fun day with your friends! And if you’re coming on your own, meet up with me and we will go have lunch together.
See you Saturday!
P.S. If you don’t live in the Austin area, but want to view the simulcast, visit Lifeway by clicking here to find a location near you or watch on your own.
“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” (John 15:13) These words of Jesus echoed in my mind as I reflected on the men and women we, in the United States, honor this Memorial Day. In today’s post, I curated some information and links to several articles and resources I found meaningful as I prepared for my own personal observance of Memorial Day. I hope you’ll join me in pausing this day to remember those who fought and died to keep us free. And as we remember them and their sacrifice, may we also remember the sacrifice of our Lord and Savior which provides us with the greatest liberty: freedom from sin and to be in right relationship with God.

History of Memorial Day
This national holiday began in the post-Civil War era. In the years after the war, communities gathered to remember family and friends who died in the war. Officially, the ceremony held in Waterloo, N.Y. on May 5, 1866 was recognized by Congress as the “birthplace” of Memorial Day. Town businesses closed their doors and residents flew flags at half-staff in honor of local veterans of the Civil War. Two years later, May 30 was established as Decoration Day, a time for the nation to honor the fallen by decorating the graves of soldiers with flowers.
After World War I, Decoration Day, also known as Memorial Day, encompassed remembering soldiers who died in all American wars. In 1971, an act of Congress designated Memorial Day a national holiday to be observed on the last Monday in May. In 2000, Congress passed “The National Moment of Remembrance Act.” All Americans are called to pause at 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day for a minute of silence to remember and honor those who have died in service to the nation.
