We Are Women, Hear Us Roar!!!

"Let heaven roar, and fire fall, come shake the ground with the sound of revival!!!"
~Like a Lion

I could not be prouder of the women and girls of Celebration Church. Last night many of them came out for W.O.W.W. night at the church (Women of Worship and Warfare) to cry out to God on behalf of our families, our church, our city, our nation and our world. 

THEY. WENT. AFTER. IT.

Nothing like Pentecostal girls who know how to chase God!

Here are some photo highlights of the night -- all photos courtesy of Rachael Rice.

What can stop us? What can stand against us? NOTHING.
Kaitlyn has such a tender heart. So glad she shares it with us...
Sunshine prays over North Tampa...
Joining together as a unified force for CHANGE!
Cindy knows how to reach God's heart. Love. This. Woman.
Angela, sweet Angela...loves God and others, so much.
Mary...one of God's gifts to me. So thankful for this lady.
Joining together in unity, pressing in and going to war in the spirit for our marriages, our children, the church, our city, nation and world. 
You look up sweet in the dictionary. This girl's picture is there. Taylor Faux. She's amazing.
We get things done for God. 
At the end of the night, Michele came and took the microphone and said, "PD, we want to support you and surround you in prayer." Pretty awesome. They prayed for me for strength and wisdom as I lead Celebration with Larry as well as anointing as I fulfill the speaking engagements God continues to open up for me outside of CC.
So blessed to lead this amazing group of girls and women and thank God every day for His presence and guidance.

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…
