Whew! The last month has been one I’ll never forget. I had to take some time off from all things sewing to take care of final preparations for a huge speaking engagement.
I was invited to be the Guest Speaker at the Desert Winds Community Church DEEPLY ROOTED Women’s Retreat. The event was held November 1 – 3 at the Four Points Sheraton in Ventura, California.
With over 80 women in attendance, I shared the story of our family’s recent tragedy, how I’m overcoming, and words of encouragement to those in attendance.
In the Bible, Jesus says, “In this world you will have trouble, but take heart. I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33) When the storms of life SHAKE you to the core, what will your roots reveal?
When the trials of life are upon you, will you be able to STAND, TRUST & ENDURE? These are some of the questions I addressed in the message that was shared with the women.
I witnessed the power of God at work in me over that weekend. He prepared me to stand before His daughters and speak the message He placed on my heart. It was a message of hope, one risen from the ashes of devastation.
If you are interested in hearing the message I shared, you may listen on the DWCC Podcast. There are 5 Sessions. Click HERE to listen.
If you prefer the old school method, DWCC will have a 5-CD Set available for online purchase soon at $20/set. I will let you know when the CD’s are available. DWCC is donating 50% of the proceeds from CD sales to the Widows, Orphans & Disabled Fire Fighters Fund, a Division of the Los Angeles Firemen’s Relief Association. This organization has been a huge support during our family’s storm.
Below, I’ve posted a video highlighting the special moments from the Retreat.
