1. “hold ’em or hundred fold ’em”


    My husband said that this series is to give us a running start into 2016.  To give us the frame of mind, the atmosphere of heart to face the new year.  This is for us as a church, but also for us individually.  I loved how he said that we can benefit from the momentum of the House.

    “If we are going to stay on this path God has for us, we will always be outnumbered, outgunned, and on the winning team.”

    This series tho.  I’m just so excited for my own relationship with Jesus as He takes me further up and further in, and I just can’t wait for what God pours into our hearts and how He leads us to give and live and to love and to lead. This is an exhilarating time, fresh life!  And grab this message if you missed it!

    And I love how our kids are learning the same things and getting to give toward all that is in our hearts in 2016!

  2. #FourthWallSeries “Afraid, but not Alone”


    If we put into practice the truths we have learned in this series, our lives will be radically changed.  The simple and yet powerful reminder that God is always with us, will change how we see our circumstances, temptation, wanderings, and our suffering, like we learned this weekend.

    “What comes against you is no match for Who is with you.”

    This weekend was so special and so powerful as we learned that our God is never closer than when He feels far away.  We learned the impact of His presence in our suffering, and how that changes everything. I love this story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego!

    When we remember He is with us:

    1 we are Invincible

    2 we are Blessable

    3 we experience the Unexplainable

    One of my most favorite things of this message was when my husband pointed out how the Bible says their clothes didn’t even smell like smoke!  And the beauty of how God can take our worst day, and restore and redeem and remove the smell of the trial from our lives.  Our darkest days won’t disappear from our lives, but they don’t need to define our lives. Thank You Lord for your presence and Your power in our pain.

    Here are some shots from the weekend, have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and see you next week for the start of our Multiply series!

  3. #EyesofaLion Melbourne FL

    Twenty three months ago we were in Melbourne, Florida with the o2 experience, and it was such a joy to get to bring the message of hope found in Jesus again to this city at Calvary Melbourne!

    What a fantastic finale to this special tour!  I am really so in awe of the opportunity to be a part of this.  God is moving so beautifully in so many lives, and we as a family, as a team, as a church get to be a part of it!

    And goodness gracious.  What a dream, what a team – home and away – what a life!

    Some sweet shots from this night:

  4. #EyesofaLion Ft. Lauderdale

    We love this city, and the last time we were here, we had the privilege of bringing the o2 experience.  We have met so many people during this leg of the trip that were there with us for o2, and it was really special getting to meet them and hear what God is doing in their lives.

    We’re thankful for Church by the Glades with Pastor David and Lisa Hughes for hosting us!
