More Cayman Memories...

Our host pastor ~ Pastor Torrance Bobb, First Assembly of God, Cayman Islands ~ seen here with his grandchildren.  Pastor and Mrs. Bobb were just amazing hosts.  At the end of the conference, Mrs. Bobb gave each of the women on our speaker team a Cayman beach tote bag as a special gift from her.  HOW SWEET!!!
Marsha Woolley, our Pen-FL Women's Director  prays over those who came to the altar for salvation.  The anointing flowed so strongly through Marsha, and all of our team...we had some incredibly powerful times.
Woo hoo!  Caymans Hope Tour!!!  (Me, Tammy, Marsha standing in back of sanctuary...another session was about to start -- waiting for rest of ladies to come in.  There was a fantastic attendance at this conference, which was the first one of it's kind in the Caymans. )
Cayman Ladies at altar...so many breakthroughs, and victories were received at the altars during all of the sessions and services!!!  We have already had miracle breakthrough testimonies come in!!
Upon Tammy's suggestion I brought this "brain" home from the Caymans - it was on the beach. It's on my counter top now. :)  It is reminding me to keep positive thoughts in my brain -- not toxic ones.  Just introduced to the book, "Who Switched Off My Brain" by Dr. Caroline Leaf and read it on the trip.  Excellent!!!  
We filled up an entire van with our luggage!  And had a second van to actually get around in.  I think Marsha brought one suitcase of just shoes...ha ha ha! 
Tammy tries to "baptize" me...she grabbed me and screamed, "I baptize you in the name of the goose, when we get to the bottom I'll turn you loose!"  No I am not kidding.    I fought back and she DID NOT get away with baptizing me. 
Traveling home on Cayman Airways...here are Rebecca, me, Sandy, Marsha and Jennifer.  We were delayed for quite a while with our plane having mechanical problems but we passed the time easily, as these ladies are all such wonderful friends and we talk to our heart's content.  I was glad to see my family on Monday when I returned but I really miss my sisters on the Hope Tour team.  They are among my dearest friends.
Tammy and I all cozy in our seats on the plane...reading and waiting to take off.  So grateful for my dear friend, not just on this Cayman trip but all the time.   I am so blessed.

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…

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 …

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…
