Hey Friends –

When was the last time God called you out of your comfort zone and asked you to do something that only He could accomplish through you??

This Wednesday, September 12th I’ll be the keynote speaker at the Allegan County Fair’s Women’s Day program.

They had a popular speaker in place (who is known for sharing amazing, hilarious cooking demonstrations), but unfortunately she had to cancel due to a family illness. I received a call just a few short weeks ago, and now I’m the “Plan B”. 

Can I be honest with you?? I am so super nervous! :/ 

This will be the first time in years that I will not be sharing at a Bible study, church retreat, etc..  Since I’ll be at the fair ~ I need to choose my words carefully (if you know what I mean). 

They typically have 400-600 women attend – and I’ve heard they love to laugh! I’ve been praying and preparing BIG TIME since this opportunity came my way…and have been blessed to have friends joining me in praying for God’s intervention!  

Thankfully my message “Laughter, Lice & Lemonade” is finally finished. Woo Hoo! (Remember my lice ordeal from last year – ugh!) I’m super excited about how it came together, and if I’m able to share it like I do when I practice on my dog – hopefully the women will laugh out loud – a lot! I’m praying so any way!

Would you please join me in praying for me this Wednesday at 10 AM??  As one of my good friends shared, “Cindy, what an awesome opportunity! What if they come expecting a new recipe and leave with new life.” Now that gets me fired up! 🙂 

However, many of the women will not find out until the day of the program that the speaker they’ve been expecting won’t be there – and instead they get me! :/

May God prepare their hearts in advance and soften their disappointment and open their hearts to the message I’ll be sharing.

Thankfully I can have a table with my He Loves Me” DVD’s, so I’m
praying God would draw women to this resource so they could hear the
whole Truth!  May God use this event to turn ALL hearts towards Him!

When was the last time God called you out of your comfort zone and asked you to do something that only He could accomplish through you?? Share with us please!

Thanks so much for stopping by *She Sparkles*! I thank God for you!! Stop back later this week and Lord willing, I’ll have fun pictures to share!

With much gratitude for YOU ~
