INSPIRE CONFERENCE

Get in on a life changing weekend coming up on March 5-7 at the Inspire Conference in Orlando, hosted by my dear friend Pastor Sandy Phinazee. Ladies, I realize the economy is tight right now but you can't afford to miss it! My suggestion is to get three friends together and share a room for four, which makes it much more affordable for all.

You will experience phenomenal worship, preaching and altar times. Speakers are Pastor Sandy Phinazee, Pastor Sheri Hawley, Rev. Marsha Woolley, Pastor Tomeika Williams, Pastor Jennifer Lee, and...........yours truly! This is my third year in a row of speaking at Inspire but I want you to know, even if I was not speaking I would be there unless there was a very compelling reason not to be which would be something like incapacitation, hospitalization or...being deceased. Yes, I'm serious. YOU WANT TO BE THERE. If you have ever wondered, "Does God move today like He moved back in the days of the Bible?" WONDER NO MORE. The theme for this year is LET IT RAIN, and trust me, it's going to. Come and join us as we have one of the most powerful weekends you have EVER experienced.

They have graciously held the pre-registration rate of $55 over, and you can still get the special hotel rate as well with the Florida Mall hotel. Check out this link for more information, or you are free to contact me personally for more info and I'll be glad to help you.

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…
