I have had the best time getting to know and serve the local women of Jacksonville lately! In September, I enjoyed the ladies of Lakewood United Methodist Church as I served as their retreat speaker at Epworth by the Sea. Our theme for the weekend was “Strong and Courageous” with Joshua 1:9 as our key verse.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
We first addressed why we don’t always feel strong and courageous so that was a great place to begin. Then we learned 3 ways to grow in our strength and courage and lastly, how hope is our resource for this to take place. We had wonderful worship and skits and even enjoyed roasting marshmallows by the fire with a guitar sing-along.
Then in October, I had the joy of serving the ladies of Shindler Drive Baptist Church for their women’s event “Pursue”. Our key verse for the event was Jeremiah 29:13.
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
I taught about what it means to pursue Christ with all of your heart by studying the man who was after “God’s own heart”. We had a wonderful evening that included a steak dinner, smores bar, and worship.
I invite you to check out my speaking schedule on my Speaker Page if you are in need of a speaker for an upcoming event or if you are nearby for an event of mine. I have upcoming events November 8-10 for my church ( The Church of Eleven 22 ) which will be held at Epworth by the Sea and also in Tallahassee November 12 for the She Found Joy national tour.
