A few photos from today...

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

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

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
