It's here!


Can't believe the day has finally come! Mmmmm...I feel like it's a mixture of Christmas morning and a family reunion!

(I have wireless internet in the room, btw...yippee!) Will be able to update though probably not long ones til' Saturday night as I want to spend every waking moment with the wonderful friends who have come for this weekend.

Pastor T, my husband, and I came to Hilton last night at 10 pm, and worked on the initial set up of the media stuff and finished up around 1 am. I spent the night here last night, and Larry went back home after spending some time with me. He had to go back to take care of the kids and get everyone off to school this morning.

After Teeb left last night, I couldn't resist turning on the TV and watching the re-run of Guiliani and Palin's speeches at the RNC. I had already heard snippets of it on talk radio on the way over to the Hilton, and it only wet my appetite even more to stay up and catch the re-cap. So far I haven't missed a night of the DNC or the RNC. I suppose I will miss tomorrow night but I'm sure Larry will tivo it for me and Saturday night when I get home I'll catch up.

Going over notes for the big night again tonight (opening of Unstoppable!) This morning will be another busy time right up until the opening tonight. Registration begins this afternoon and the band and worship team will arrive to set up and get their sound checks, and all displays put up outside the hall, and then I'll see some of my best friends in the world...

only a few more hours until Tara Sloan gets here...

I CAN'T WAIT...

can you tell I'm just a lih-tle excited?

The two peas in a pod...the kindred hearts...will once again be together in the same location and able to actually eat out of the SAME box of Cheerios! Woo hoo!

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

Relevant Church doing something...

incredibly RELEVANT!

I just heard some news today that really inspired me. A church here in Tampa, Relevant Church is doing a new thing this month called the "30 Days Sex Challenge." (I've never visited the church but Pastor Trinity - our children's pastor - has visited or has met some people from this church and he was very impressed.) Realizing that this is a major element missing from some marriages (the frequency factor) their lead pastor, Paul Wirth, has issued a challenge for all the married couples to have sex for 30 days in a row. At the same time he has issued a challenge for all unmarrieds to completely abstain from sex. Of course we know the Bible says that those who are unmarried should not have sex in the first place but the point is, a lot of unmarried's aren't obeying the Lord's command to abstain and this is just one pastor's way of trying to get them to see that indeed, there is a better way! (God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no

Why You Should Never Hijack a Comment Thread
Social media etiquette 101

One surefire way to kill your influence in social media and wear out your welcome fast is to become involved in derailing somebody’s comment thread with your own agenda. Networking and hijacking aren’t the same thing. It’s surprising how many people don’t understand that this is a guarantee for tearing down a platform as quickly as you build it. Passion is good, even necessary. I appreciate people's zeal for their personal core values. What is not appreciated is the attempt at a redirection of a comment thread when the comment has little or nothing to do with an original post or is twisted at best. Social media provides ample opportunity for all of us to share what’s important to us on our own platform. Eliciting others’ responses and developing connections largely depends on our ability to communicate and compel. Some people are open to receiving private communication from others although they aren’t always able to answer personally or at length. But hijacking a comment threa
