Now HERE'S a power walk!


A visit from a godly friend is like a triple B-12 shot! Sounds proverbial, but that's from my lips to your ears! So fun to have my dear friend Candy Davison visiting us from North East, MD this summer week in Hendersonville. You may know Candy as the most networked and admired women's ministry leader on the east coast, and that she is! Her "job" as Women's Ministry Coordinator at Sandy Cove Ministries in Maryland, is more than her job - it's her life, ministry and passion. But my most favorite thing about Candy (besides the fact that she loves raspberries, Trader Joe's, dark chocolate and has the best laugh - ever!), is that she LOVES God's word. And to take it one level past most of us, she has memorized many many chapters and consistently repeats the scriptures in her head and heart everyday. So, while on our walk through Sanders Ferry Park the other day, I asked her to recite to me while (in cadence) we "marched" around the beauty that God created. It was a divine moment. Here's just a segment from Ephesians 3. Powerful stuff. So here's my encouragement to all of you - let's get memorizing the Word of God. Let's tuck it so deeply into our hearts, minds and bone marrow - that it just oozes when needed, and becomes salve for days when your friends need it most.

This IS amazing. I've heard her share the whole PMS thing - encouragement to memorize scripture and it's quite cool to see her in action!

You are SO right, Frances!!! And this is just a portion of what I could feasibly get on video! She recited three chapters of Ephesians, and still had three to go!!!!! I'm inspired, although my A.D.D. brain is in need of help! When are you coming back to Nashville????
