Most Amazing Ministry Experience!

I long, yes, I faint with longing to enter the courts of the Lord.  With my whole being, body, and soul, I will shout joyfully to the living God! ~ Psalm 84:2

Yesterday, the Lord allowed me share HIS love at Starkey Road Baptist Church.  This incredible group of ladies have one of the most well run moms groups I've ever visited.  It was their Moms Of PreSchoolers organization and it was truly refreshing.

This wonderful team was overflowing with warm hospitality from the moment I walked through their front door.  From their greeters, to their decorations.....from their outstanding their outgoing friendliness, these girls had it going on!  They were a well oiled machine working together to pour HIS love into the hearts of hungry-for-more moms.

My Strength radar was overstimulated with so many obvious giftings being used to make it a day of refreshing and renewal.  I truly enjoyed watching the Lord weave together HIS beautiful Masterpieces (ladies) into one place with a strong purpose!  

Just look at some of the work these incredible women invested, and you can see HIM!

 I was very impressed with the attention to detail put into every single table.

 Not only did I feel welcomed and loved by their personalized newsletter sitting at each spot, but I also happen to be forever friends with a graphic designer (Hi Christa) and was in awe of how well this precious gal laid out each article and picture. 

 As I first laid eyes on their speaker sign I couldn't help but think of all the time invested behind the scenes when putting together this meeting each month.  The leadership team at Starkey Road Baptist has an obvious heart for others.  You know that every single woman walked away inspired, refreshed, and renewed!  

Everything was put together to make each person feel special, wanted, included.  (and you girls would know that my includer would notice that!)

Even the staging area was designed with detail and thought. 

Listen, I love talking about my Jesus!  I am energized and blessed by helping women discover their God-given strengths and who HE made them to be.  It's my delight, passion, and in this season it's my purpose.  The truth is, I would stand in the middle of Wal-Mart if God told me too.  But I simply cannot tell you what a blessing it was to be ministered to and blessed in the process. 

Thank you for having me Starkey Road Baptist MOPS Ladies!
