More highlights


So much to blog about and so many photos to put up! I haven't had time. I've been enjoying my family's company, especially my sister Shari from out of town, and I haven't been on line to blog.
We had a great day on Saturday with Jordan's graduation and party. I don't have time to post a lot tonight as we have family plans again, although we took Shari back this afternoon, we are doing something as a family tonight. But I wanted to post a few more photos of the big day.

Jordan with his girlfriend Emmy.


With Pastor Trinity and Misty Mackley, our dear staff members and friends...(Pastor T helped me and did a beautiful video for his party and the cake top -- soon to be shown in pictures here on the blog...)


With friend, Megan Russo. Jordan and Meghan are in the same class and have been good friends all through high school. She is the Pastor Ed and Janis Russo's daughter. They are the lead pastors of Victorious Life Church in Wesley Chapel. Jordan and Megan have a tremendous amount in common being that they are both PK's and both fantastic drummers! (They did a duet for senior showcase.)

I will post more photos as I can. Of this weekend alone we took 370 photos. I am not kidding. Shari and I went to CVS this morning before going to the airport, to put all of the photos on CD for her to take back to Charlotte and it took forever for them to load, but it was worth it.

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

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

What Verbal Abuse is Really Like, and Why We Must Care
Guest Post: Terri von Wood

In my speaking travels, I meet the most amazing people. Some are connections that go beyond just a night or a weekend of preac hing. One day on my journey, I met Terri von Wood, and we immediately clicked and have been friends ever since.  Just a reminder that all of our guest bloggers this week are available to chat with you in the comment section here on the blog or on my facebook page where the blog is also published.   *** People who have never suffered through or witnessed abuse (including pastors) often don't know how to help women in abusive situations. Knowledge is power and it is my belief that if the church understood the prevalence of abuse, help would be made available.  First, we must acknowledge that the divorce rate is the same  in the church as in the world.  Second, we must understand that the 50% divorce rate does not include all the women who are abused but stay because they do not know what else to do or do not have anyone to turn to.  If those women we
