I didn't want any of you to think I had succumbed to the flu. I continue to fight and see small improvements every day. Unfortunately, Hannah came down with it on Sunday, so I am trying to care for sick me and sick Hannah. To top it off, Scott is away on business, so I don't even have his healthy helping hands, ugh!
I need some special prayers this week. Several months ago, God placed a calling into my heart, a brand new ministry. He asked me to start a group for Middle School girls to help them grow in their faith lives. This has weighed heavy on my heart, especially since Hannah's Irish Dance interferes with our ability to have contact with our church community.
After much prayer and research, I started the ball rolling four weeks ago and began planning a Pure Freedom Retreat for a group of 10 girls here at my house for, guess when?... Yes, this weekend! Thankfully I have an awesome co-leader who has picked up the physical prep for me this week, but I am still trying to mentally prep for this huge weekend.
We will be using the book "And the Bride Wore White" by Dannah Gresh. Thankfully she has an amazing leader's guide that lays out the entire weekend, what a blessing! Check out her Pure Freedom Website at www.purefreedom.org .
Please, please, pray that I will have the strength to give these girls an experience that will light a fire in them for Christ. So much planning has gone into this, for God's sake, I want it to be an amazing success! I so appreciate your support of me and know you will lend your prayers to my cause!
