Freedom's Call



Here we are!!! These are the ladies God has allowed me to serve with. Aren't they beautiful! Each one of us are in a different stage of life. Each one has a distinct story, but those stories have the same theme. There is Freedom in Jesus. There is life! A good life regardless of our earthly situations!

This is what God has been preparing me for the last 2 years. I knew it the moment I looked into this group of women's eyes that Saturday in Greenville. When we began to talk about the things God was doing in our hearts and lives, there was this common thread that just seemed to knit us together. God orchestrated this. He handpicked each one of us for this time and let me just tell you, I'm so humbled. I still get chills when I think that He would allow me to minister next to these ladies.

Our speaker is Jill, she's in the middle of each picture. I've had the privilege of praying with her over the phone this month. There is no better way to get to know someone than by praying for and with them.

The other 3 ladies, are Debbie, Debbie and Amy. We all sing in Worship Choir together and that is how we met. You know what I love about these girls? They are as real as real can be! When we practice, I completely forget about the time, the place, it's just pure worship. Don't get me wrong we work hard, but we love to worship our Jesus!

All of these ladies make me want to love Jesus more. I sure hope that you have women like that in your life. Women who will hold your arms up when you get tired.

Maybe we should start asking ourselves who's arms can I hold up today?





This is our favorite picture. I call it the Fountain Picture.
We hope that one day soon we will be putting it on posters! Right now, God has opened several doors for the worship team to sing. We are praying that God will give us opportunities to minister to women in retreat settings. Either on church campuses or at get-away retreats. Jill is an anointed speaker, who delivers truth in a powerful way. If you would like to know more, you can e-mail and I'll be glad to chat with you!

It's exciting to see the pieces fall into place for you after the time of turmoil and testing. I love the pictures.

Stephanie,

Don't you just love having women who are God's choice for your friends! I have that same type of group and I just love them to pieces. Thanks so much for sharing the picture. I love the concept of holding each other's arms up. That is the picture God gave me from the book of Exodus when I began my Tuesday morning ladies Bible study. We would be there to hold each other's arms up and that is exactly what we have done over the past 7 years. I am unspeakably blessed.

Have a great day!!
