Fun Friday Maddie Update!


Jordan holds the bowl up for Maddie to eat while she wears her cone.  But she got messy and the food was spilling out on him, thus his face here...


Picking up the loose food that's falling and putting it back in the bowl...she's able to stand up on two legs to eat, and just rest on her back legs, then we have to lay her back down in the cage, to keep her laying the rest of the time and let the bones heal.  If we let her out, she tries to stand all the time and walk although she's not strong enough yet.  Three more weeks...miracles are happening!


You can see her little scabs that are fallling off...and new skin/hair growing...yeah!


Better view here...you can see that she's going to be made new!   All the pink areas are where the black scabs fell off and new pink skin is underneath and hair is growing back.  We thought her face was going to be permanently disfigured, but God is so amazing she is recovering.

Maddie gets her stitches out this morning!!!

You are so right. God IS working. Maddie looks so much better! As the external is healing, so is the internal...in Jesus name!
Yeah for Maddie!

She is looking much better - is it wrong to say that I think one of the most comical sights in the world is watching a dog try to eat with a cone on their head? I feel sorry for them and all, but I can't help but giggle at the awkwardness...

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 …

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…

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…
