Life Saving Hope


Some women in Miami got fresh hope this weekend.  Here's Tammy (our amazing emcee) as she was introducing something or someone -- I snapped this photo on my iphone.  It's not the greatest photo but it's what I've got...there was a professional photographer there and I'm hoping to snag a few of their photos that I'll post later.

It was a fantastic weekend but I am just so exhausted right now when I'm writing this (as 12:30 am after getting home) and need to crash before having to get up this morning for church.  We have a full morning at Celebration and then our friends Pastors Russ and Betty Jones, Pastors of Faith Family Worship Center in Palm City are coming to spend the night at our house tonight and be with us tomorrow for the holiday.  It's going to be a really good time but I need to get some sleep so I'll actually be half way alert to enjoy it. 

I am so thankful for all that God did on this Hope Tour stop.  One lady who had been struggling with deep depression and was set free at the altar flung her arms around me and said, 'THIS HAS ABSOLUTELY SAVED MY LIFE!!!"  There was such an anointing yesterday for healing and much more...I can 't wait for four more weeks when we hit the road for Jacksonville and do it all again!  C'mon, Jesus!!!

Deanne, you did saved my life because the Holy Spirit spoke to me when you asked for healing.
My life has change. Some people talk, walk, work, take care of family just because is what we do, but I was dead and now I AM a living proof of a miracle.
Thank you so much for allowing the anointing one to give life again.
May our Heavenly Father continue to used you to save more lives.

Forever grateful,

Kathia

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…
