Personal catch up


Just thought I'd throw a few things out for those who keep up with any details of my life aside from the other prolific (?) boundary pushing things I post here.


This past Friday didn't get out of bed all day/night except to take Jordan to work. Larry says, "are you really going to go outside in your nightgown?" Yes. That's how tired I was. I figured the world wasn't going to fall apart because I was walking outside to the car and driving him to work in my nightie.

I'm going in for my scope (Endoscopy) on Friday morning. Thanks for your prayers, friends.

This weekend is our missions convention. My friend Pastor Walter from Kenya will be arriving on Saturday.

Larry and I will preach a tag team message on Sunday and Pastor Walter will speak for the banquet. It's going to be a busy weekend and another awesome one.

School started yesterday and I signed a bazillion papers for Savanna. She's excited...she loves school and does well, despite me signing all those papers without reading them.

Jordan is meeting with an air force recruiter today and taking the Asvab test. (Please pray for him for wisdom and that God's will be done.)

So........let's end today's blog with 5 things I love...

1) Sandpipers!!! I fell in love with these little birds on the beach. Adorable.

2) Scrunchies. Yeah, I still love 'em.

3) Blogging. I never get tired of it.

4) Getting my hair highlighted.

5) When someone surprises me by doing a job I was dreading doing and they take if off my plate. My "love language" is "acts of service." My husband gets 100% sexier when he takes out the trash, does the dishes, or cleans the bathrooms. I am just so blessed when my husband, children and others in my life do such nice things for me to make life easier.

You deserve to have a relaxing day like that more than anyone I know. You work so hard and do so much for others that you need a day of just resting. You need to do that more often just for yourself.

I love you, Susan.

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
