Special Prayer

Hello my friends ~ I've so appreciated all of the love, care and prayers you regular readers have given me through years of writing and commenting here on the blog. Now I'd like you to ask you to throw some of those prayers in another direction as well as someone very dear to me is in need of them.


Our children's pastor, Trinity Mackley, was diagnosed with cancer (Hodgkins) on Thursday. We are totally confident that God will heal him! But we need your prayers to press this prayer request right on through to the heart of God. He will now be undergoing treatment notwithstanding a total miracle, and we do believe all things are possible!!! He is a man of courage and strength, and faith. He is equipped for this battle. If you look up "loyal staff person" in the dictionary you'll see his picture there along with some other guy named Sam Diaz. :-)

I am also praying much for his precious wife, Misty. I am believing that God would give her the peace that passes all understanding during this time. She is a woman of God and incredible staff pastor's wife if I ever did know one! I'm telling you, she's THE BEST. I have been, and continue to be so thankful for her. As her pastor and as her friend my heart goes out to her right now as much as it does to her husband. I am standing in fervent prayer for the both of them every day and ask that you would add them to your prayer list as well.

I will keep you posted as the miracles unfold, but you can also go to Trinity's new blog where he is keeping everyone updated daily as well here. It will be kind of hard for him to keep up with updating everyone individually so he created this blog to stay in touch. Stop by and comment if you like and let him know I sent you!

Deanna,
I will add them to my prayer list. In febraury our church is going on another Daniel Fast and one of the things that my family personally is praying and fasting for is those battling with cancer and life threatening diseases, we will add the Mackleys to our list. If it is alright - I will add him to our prayer blog also

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

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 kee

What To Do First to Make a Profit

The PF Women Team at our Annual Team Retreat  ~ 2018 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 inve
