Inspire Conference Day Three

Vicki Yohe and me...at Inspire '07
Speakers from Inspire Conference '07

Well, Inspire Conference is officially over now and I’m back in Tampa. What a time. It was life changing for so many reasons, many of which people would never understand, unless they were walking in my shoes. It was a prophetic weekend to say the least, and is setting the next level for me into motion, and bringing me into Kingdom connections that are needed for that.

Above you can see my photo with Vicky Yohe, who was the worship leader for the conference. Awesome. Of course I’ve known of her ministry before in fact we hosted her at Northside a few years ago. (And – surprise – she’s getting ready to come back! I’m in the midst of setting it up with her right now….) But we really got a chance to spend some time together this weekend, talking, eating, talking about “next levels” in all of our lives. Also pictured above was our speaker team for the weekend. Left to right are Missy Monokian, conference host Sandy Phinazee (co pastor at Crossroads Assembly in Callahan, FL), Vicki Yohe, me, and Terri Yohe Huffman (Vicki’s sister – also a speaker at the conference. She also leads worship for Benny Hinn.) So there we are! Don’t we look like we’re having fun?! We were.

The energy that emanated from the placed this weekend was just incredible with the dynamic women of God that had fasted and prayed and plowed in the spirit for this conference. It was prophesied that Inspire will triple next year and I wholeheartedly believe it. God did a special work in many ladies marriages this weekend who shared with me how they were impacted by my message. We sold most of the books I brought. Doing good at the product table basically means an increase of opportunity for my women’s ministries back in Tampa. Most of it is funded through my book sales.

I made some great connections this weekend, just in general in ministry and then also for our upcoming Unstoppable Conference. I’m talking it up and can’t wait to get the brochures out on it. There seems to be a lot of interest. Just want to have something tangible in my hands to give them. Right now I’m just saying, “save the date!” One thing I’m just so grateful to Jesus for is helping me to get physically through this weekend and be able to ENJOY not only my time of ministering to the ladies as I spoke, but being able to attend all the other aspects of the conference and enjoy that too. Larry came and stayed with me – we basically just had bedroom time together, but hey…that’s the best kind.

Monday is time to finish up my physical tests and start getting back on the mend physically. I’m holding steady this weekend, but come Monday it’s time to get serious about getting well. Since I’m in this for a marathon and not a sprint, doing this is something I have to be real intentional about.
