Meme that doesn't require a lotta brain power...



Savanna is headed to Missionette Stars retreat today. She's all excited and I'm excited for her. She's still a little sore today, from immunizations. She had her well check up Tuesday and her arms is still sore. But she'll be alright. This is her last year at Missionette retreat...kinda nostalgic. Lots of "lasts" this year as she moves up into this next phase. It's surreal sometimes and yes, challenging for me as a Mom! I mean, I'm really blessed...she's a great kid. The issue is, she's my baby, and that the difficulty for me...letting go.

As for me I worked today and God is giving me fresh vision and dreams for a lot of things. Nothing deep to share yet...I've been working on so much and my brain is a little fried, so I'm just going for an easy meme tonight that I got from Pastor Leanne.

1) What is your favorite day of the week?

I'm with Leanne on this one. Friday. I love what I do, however - I love to sleep!

2) How do you usually do your hair?

I put a lot of product on it and blow dry it out straight.

3) What is your favorite item of clothing?

My African dress.

4) Where would your dream vacation be?

London with my husband.

5) Who is your favorite author? book?

Besides the Bible, too impossible to narrow down.

6) How often do you log on?

I am usually constantly logged on either at home or the office although I am not always sitting down at my computer.

7) What is one of your favorite internet sites to visit?

So many. But my favorite one right now is Perry Noble's.

8) Coke or Pepsi?

Coke, absolutely.

9) Healthy snacks or junk food?

Along with Leanne, I am a WW member. Obviously I have a problem with the junk and have to try to stay away from it. I "prefer" the junk but it's not good for me. So it's a never ending challenge to choose what is right for me. My favorite junk food -- potato chips. My favorite healthy snack -- low fat cheese.

10) Are yo a morning person or a night owl?

Night owl. Totally. I am creative and do some of my best work at night, then crash and absolutely adore sleep...when I can.

This Could Have Ruined Everything... (But It Didn't!)

No one would ever guess what happened to me this weekend in Jacksonville, Florida...so I'm going to tell you. :)


As I was preaching at the Fearless Tour at New Hope Assembly of God this weekend,  I got choked up, literally. For probably 2-3 minutes I coughed profusely and greatly struggled. Then I drank some water and kept preaching. Everyone was gracious to give me a few moments to get my bearings. If you were there, you'll remember it!

What no one realized at the time was that I swallowed a bug that flew right in while I was preaching! So disgusting! I said nothing because I was at a point in the sermon where I was really connecting and I knew if I said, "I swallowed a bug," everyone would either laugh profusely or be really concerned, or start feeling sorry for me.  And at that point whey wouldn't be thinking about the message anymore, but the fact that I had just swallowed a bug. They would then imagine what it would be like, and feel grossed out which is u…

I'm Just Being Transparent...

This year at the Stronger Conference, a young minister stopped me as I was walking out of the room at the conclusion of a workshop and she said, "I want to tell you something..." (I was all ears.) She said, "Do you notice how many of the speakers this weekend are saying, "Now, I'm just being transparent when I tell you..." or "I'm just keepin' it real..." I nodded yes. In fact, I mentioned that I was one of those speakers. I think I probably said a few times in both my keynote message and my workshop that I was just "keepin' it real."

After I affirmed that yes, I had noticed that -- she said, "Do you know why they have to do that? They do it...and you do it, because so many people don't keep it real. So many in leadership aren't transparent, Deanna. That's why all these people speaking here feel an urge to declare their transparency.." I let her know that usually when I say, "I'm just keeping …

What To Do First to Make a Profit

Today on Seth Godin's blog, he said:

It's tempting to decide to make a profit first, then invest in training, people, facilities, promotion, customer service and most of all, doing important work. In general, though, it goes the other way.
Yes, it does. If you are waiting to make a profit before you do these things, in my experience you're  not going to make a profit. So many organizations, ministries and churches are struggling with financial issues. I know your pain. As anyone who follows our story knows, our ministry was in a ton of debt four years ago when I came on as director.  Since that time, we've gotten out of debt and turned a profit every year.  God has done amazing things through out team, for which we give Him the glory!

I find that what Seth is saying here is absolutely true, with one disclaimer. For Christian leaders, spiritual disciplines must always be first. Before we started investing and training and all of that, seeking God for his blessing and…
