I love that Fresh Life’s birthday is at the beginning of the year. There’s always so much celebration and remembering to start off the new year!

Seven years ago this week, my husband, 15-month old Alivia, and I – along with Eric Melzer and a friend helping us, Carrie Rowe – drove from California to Montana in the adventure of our lives. We had absolutely no idea what lay ahead, we were driving in faith, believing the God who was leading us.

We’re in a season of celebration these next few weeks as we remember  what God has done, and as we anticipate what He has for us going into this eighth year of ministry. This weekend was incredible! And if you missed it, watch it here.

God gave my husband a specific word for us from Exodus 19:4, that in these last seven years, God has carried us. And he gave us seven reasons how he knows that God has carried us on eagle’s wings throughout this whole time.  His first reason was that more has been done than we could ever do. And the incredible number of people who have surrendered their lives to Christ in these seven years – 6,891 people – is proof! That’s not even to mention all the lives changed, all the marriages saved and now thriving, because as my husband said, we can’t change people, this is work only God can do.

Last year, we learned what it meant to run with horses, and this year, we are continuing as we trust Him, take it in, and take it to the next level!

Happy new year!
