Hey Friends 🙂

Have you ever had a week filled with so much of God’s goodness that your mouth hurt from smiling so much?!

That was my week this week. Woo Hoo!

Before I go into my launch of how God showed up during my birthday week BIG TIME, I’ll be honest and share I’ve been struggling. Wrestling with “stinking thinking”. Needing new coping skills. Wanting to be grown up and mature, and sick and tired of being pelted with lies.

I’ve been crying out to God in prayer…especially as I headed into a week where my biggest fears and insecurities would be brought to the forefront.

Not only did God answer my plea, He has lavished more love and grace on me than I ever deserve. Amazing grace, how sweet the sound….

Tuesday Night was the Video Premiere for He Loves Me!

My best friend Julie rented out a theater at hosted a private viewing of my testimony.I was nervous about what it would be like to bear my soul (on a huge screen, no less!) in front of 200+ family members and friends.

As I was lamenting with one friend of what a crazy idea it was to view all of my junk, hurt and poor choices in a theater with hundreds of other people – she said, “Cindy, that’s not crazy, it’s victory!”

My friend was right! What a night of victory and celebration!I couldn’t have asked for a better reception, and thanks to the generosity of RBC Ministries, everyone who came left with a DVD copy of “He Loves Me”. For a photo album of the night, check out my FB page here.

Wednesday was my birthday!


I was so blessed with fun surprises (like a Starbucks delivered at 7 AM by my sweet mama), fun notes and kind words, and an overall wonderful day.


Besides a great birthday dinner with my family, another highlight came from my Manda’s 3rd grade class. I showed up for my normal Wednesday lunch duty, and they surprised me with 21 homemade birthday cards for me. I nearly cried. Precious!

I’ve had a blast sending out DVD’s this week. I love sending surprises in the mail, and it’s blessed me to surprise my prayer partners around the nation with a copy of “He Loves Me”.

This project has been a labor of prayer from day one, and I love reflecting on the special women (and men) who have helped pray it into fruition.


(If you’d like a copy, it’s not too late to enter my giveaway. I’ll be sending out 42 DVD’s on Monday!)

Lastly, on this amazing, whirlwind week, I’ve been overwhelmed and blessed by my amazing partners in ministry and their support. All around blog world, dear friends have shared the kindest blog posts from “He Loves Me”. If you have a minute, I’d love if you’d stop by and say hello and read their encouraging posts!

Mother’s Day is the official airing of “He Loves Me” across the nation (and more!). You can also watch it in its entirety here.

Would you please join me in praying that God would use this DVD to turn hearts towards Him, and for His glory alone?

I was chatting with a friend last night….reflecting on the fullness of my week, and shared, “Most importantly, I just want Jesus to be KNOWN. It is so not about me, about me being known, or about anything else… It’s all about Jesus. That’s it”

It’s all for Him! 🙂

Whew! What a whirlwind week! What have you been up to, my friend? What has God been teaching you? When was the last time you experienced a miracle in your midst? I would love to hear from you!

Thanks for stopping by *She Sparkles*! God’s richest blessings to you!
