Many of you have heard me talk about gIRL: girlfriends In Real Life and I’m so excited to tell you that TODAY, June 15, 2010, is the FIRST OFFICIAL day of gIRL! Nine months ago Melinda and I began this journey to gIRL. The concept of nine months gestation is not lost on me – don’t you just LOVE how the Lord speaks to us in the large things and in the nuances of life. Melinda has so much to share about the birth of gIRL and her grandgirl Lilli, but I encourage you to go there for her story.
As for me… well, when Melinda and I first starting talking all I really knew is I wanted a way for women to come together and fellowship in Christ. I was thinking more along the lines of a party with some prayer, but God had a whole different plan. Over these last nine months God has continually blown my mind with His plans and His provision for those plans.
I’m honored and awestruck to be in His service. I’m so excited to tell you about gIRL and the website launch
And about the FIRST gIRL Gathering in Black Mountain, North Carolina – September 24-26, 2010. I am so excited to tell you what started as an idea of a party with some prayer is now a weekend spent with a small group of women studying His Word. We will be building 21st century relationships based on wisdom from the Temple Walls to the Early Church – timeless truths from God.
Who would have thought that social media would make such a huge impact on my life and my walk with the Lord. He is my passion and I pray that He is yours, too.
I hope you’ll be able to join us! I know God has some incredible days ahead for all of us gIRLS!
