Respond Women's Retreat: A Letter from Little

little blog When my grandma purchased the land that camp sits on, she made a sweet request to the Lord and asked that everyone who stepped foot on this property would feel the presence of the Lord. I have had the golden opportunity to watch this peace land inside the heart and soul of many lives while being a part of the ministry here at Snowbird over the last two decades.  The Lord is so very good!

My life is a beautiful chaotic mess, raising 2 teenagers, one pre-teen, a kindergartener, and a toddler. I’m always on the go—like so many of you. However, in the busy-ness, it has been very refreshing to have a few moments to myself preparing for the Respond Women’s Conference.

Most of that preparation has been in reading through the book of Philippians.  The old truth that to live is Christ has breathed a new freedom into my lungs and drawn me into His marvelous light once again. Paul’s words compel us to dig deep and press close to our Savior, dying to ourselves that we might live. If our lives are found in Christ, we can be women who are unified in a way that speaks the truth of our Savior in the midst of suffering.

My prayer for the women who come to Respond is that they would feel Christ as they step onto the ground here…that they’d hear Him softly calling them into a place of humble re-purpose…soaked and saturated with the joy of the Lord.  I can’t wait to see each of you ladies! There’s still a few spots left, so if you’re thinking of coming, please do! Register today.

 

 

The joy of biblical community

"Behold, how good and pleasant when brothers dwell together in unity." —Psalm 133:1

Every year in September the full-time, year-round staff at SWO heads to Cades Cove in the Great Smokey Mountains National Park for a monster camp-out. We spend three nights just decompressing from the crazy summer routine and gearing up for the busy fall and winter. One of the things that has always set SWO apart from a lot of ministries is the bond the staff members have with one another. It is so biblical to honor and serve each other, but it is also vital to ministry effectiveness to ENJOY one another. The Church needs more than an occasional Sunday afternoon dinner-on-the-grounds, as good as they are. We need to drive toward unity and pleasure in fellowship. Most churches that I speak in are empty within fifteen minutes of the closing “Amen." It is almost like we don’t really like each other.

Slow down, and enjoy the brothers and sisters Christ has died to reconcile not only to Himself, but to one another. Let’s move beyond toleration to enjoyment.

Thanks SWO crew for an awesome week and an even more awesome reminder!
