I have a leadership meeting in and hour and a half (yes... can you say amazingly busy Sunday?!) and only have a second to post a few photos as I have to get the finishing touches lined up for this meeting, however I knew my blog readers as well as facebook friends would want to see a few photos of today. These were taken by Lourdes Manners. Thank you, Lourdes!

Totally amazing wedding cake (there were many more cupcakes in addition to this but we could not fit them all nicely on the table so we kept them in reserve for when these were gone. Check back each day this week, I am also going to post photo of the gourmet pretzel favors and the intructions with photos of us making them, so any of you who are interested can make your own for special occasions.

Hi Deanna,
You have the coolest church! What a beautiful testimony of God's changing power and a wonderful end to a love story between these two!

If I weren't living and working in our church....I'd definitely attend your church! You guys rock!

Awesome Job!

I agree with LaDonna! Cool church! The pictures are beautiful. I may take some of your ideas to bless a couple in our church.

WOW...I love it and everything that goes with it. Remember right before this you had a moment with Rita Springer? Doesn't times like this seem like such a gift from God to bless you and remind you how hard work and perseverance physically, spiritually and emotionally is soooo worth it?

God bless 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

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
