Holy Hangover

Hey friends –

Happy last day of July! The month of July has been a crazy, adventurous, wild month for me!

While I was at the She Speaks Conference last week, Renee Swope warned us we may experience a “Holy Hangover,” and that totally describes how I feel!

Note: a “Holy Hangover” is when you’re exhausted after much HOLY fun. Please don’t get that confused with an alcoholic hangover. Y’all know after my rebellious past, I am 100% alcohol free these days. Just sayin’, please don’t misread or misinterpret. 🙂

In case you’re wondering what I’ve been up to, here’s a quick photo recap for you –

1. Red Hot Faith Summer Bible Study –


Red Hot Faith Kickoff at Baker Book House

Red Hot Faith discussions

I had the absolute BEST time with this Red Hot Faith-filled group of women. We had nearly 150 women from 38+ different churches. Wow. My heart is sad it’s over – but filled to the brim with special memories from our Red Hot summer. Only God!

Red Hot Faith study in action - woo hoo!

Love serving with Julie Richardson & Amelia Rhodes

2. Anointed Teachings

I was super blessed to have the chance to sit live under the teachings of both Rick Renner and Priscilla Shirer this month. I’m still soaking in their amazing messages. Wow.

Loved bumping into my Woodside Bible friends at Priscilla Live!

3. Proverbs 31 She Speaks Conference

What an amazing time I had at the Proverbs 31 She Speaks Conference!

My friend Erin  was super kind to pick me up at the airport with beautiful flowers to remind me that “He Loves Me” (and run me through Chik-Fil-A before the conference).

Once I arrived at She Speaks, I had the opportunity to reconnect with many friends like Dana MacCord, Amy Lively (taking the picture) & Natalie Snapp.

It’s always fun to see my West Michigan friend and prayer partner Karen Ehman.

But the real highlight was my time as a speaker coach leading evaluation groups!

I loved getting to know my group –  10 super gifted, beautiful women from all across the United States, Canada, & even Paris! LOVE, LOVE these women! What an amazing opportunity to facilitate their evaluation time.


#SheSpeaks13 Room 1008 Speaker Group

Yes, of course, we marked the moment with confetti! After each woman shared her Truth-filled presentation, we capped off the night with a confetti wand celebration. FUN!

Cammie's first confetti wand. :)

As we know, all good things must come to an end.

As sad as I was to leave my amazing roomie Amy Lively, and all my She Speaks friends, I couldn’t wait to get home to this group –

Welcome home Mom!

Welcome home Mom!
