I was tremendously blessed this weekend by the Awaken conference at my home church, First Baptist Church of Ocala. Margaret Feinberg, the key note speaker, gave an amazing talk on being intentional about poking holes in the darkness and seizing the wonder of joy!
A joyful heart is good medicine,
but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
Strength and dignity are her clothing,
and she laughs at the time to come.
When life gets hard, I crank up the praise music. Here are two of my favorites:
Amanda Williams is a forty-year old wife and mother of two who can still swing her pony tail and display just a tad of sass. She is also a Jesus loving girl who realizes she is nothing without the One who saved her. Amanda has two degrees specializing in serving students with special needs and is currently working in the field of Leadership Development. She is a Christian author, speaker, blogger, and publisher who loves serving beside her husband at her local place of worship, First Baptist Church of Ocala.
