So Long Insecurity - Part 2

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

Back in early March I was having lunch with some co-workers when my cell phone rang. The caller was the Director of Living Proof Ministries, beautiful Sabrina Moore. She wanted to know if I would be willing to organize a group of women to serve as hostesses at the LPM resource tables during the So Long Insecurity event. I said "let me think, yes." It took less than 2 minutes with a Facebook message later that evening to gather the 12 workers! A chance for us to give back a little by serving Beth Moore and LPM after all they have invested in us? Done deal!

The "Delightful Dozen Southern Siestas" were Fran, Robyn, Tammy, Stephanie, Nikki, Wendy, Emmy, Lora, Deborah, Miranda, Karen, and me! My friend Alaina and Emmy's daughter Lizzy even helped us! We worked so hard and had so much fun! No one would have believed we were newbies.  You know why? We knew and believed in our products! Bethie's books, CD's, DVD's and studies! We knew of what we "speaketh!"

Here are two overhead pictures of us in action...I cannot tell you how much fun we had, but we did. We laughed, explained, worked, walked back and forth, prayed, explained some more, hugged necks, answered questions, hugged more necks, and had a blast!
Robyn (blonde) and K Mac and Nancy!
(K Mac and Nancy are LPM Staffers)
Wendy is bagging up a purchase for someone!
K Mac, Nancy, Tammy and Deborah
Me, Alaina, Fran, and Karen stop for a picture
Nikki - I was so happy to meet her "in real life"
Lizzy, me, and Emmy
(Emmy and I traveled to Houston together back in January
to attend the Scripture Memory Team Celebration)
Karen is having a good time! (Always)
Lora is a sweetheart! She writes beautiful poems.
I am saying "So Long Insecurity!"
I can't remember when I simultaneously worked so hard and yet had so much fun. I know it is because we were all like-minded in spirit and in purpose. Thank you Living Proof Ministries for allowing us to serve you and our sisters in Christ. We were SECURE in our love for you and in our jobs as resource table hostesses!  It was a great day that I will remember for a long time. I miss my siestas already.

So Long Insecurity - Part 1

Monday, April 26, 2010

The long-awaited So Long Insecurity Conference at First Baptist Church of Woodstock, GA and simulcast to 869 locations for an attendance of 300,000 was one of the best events in which I have ever been privileged to participate!

Beth Moore taught from Ephesians 4 on what a "Secure Woman" is using the acronym for the word secure.
S = Saved from herself
E = Entitled to truth
C = Clothed with intention
U = Upended by grace
R = Rebounded by love
E = Exceptional in life

I will share my notes soon and which "letter" meant the most to my heart, but right now I just wanted to share some pictures.
Here I am on the bus with the book written by Beth Moore.  Go get it and read it if you haven't. It will make a difference in your life and your attitude toward life. 





There were 300,000 women that participated in the conference, and 10,000 of them were at the host site at First Baptist Church of Woodstock, Georgia. They were great hosts and served us well.  I know their pastor, Dr. Johnny Hunt is so proud of them!  This is the women waiting to get in to their seats...

The worship, the Word, and the women were wonderful.  More to come...

Love,
Jan

Chocolate Cobbler Recipe

Tuesday, April 6, 2010

Happy Spring, sweet friends!  We had a family picnic Easter Sunday afternoon and I made "Chocolate Cobbler" at my husband's request.  This dessert is pure old-fashioned chocolatey gooey goodness with a delicious cobbler crust!  It is made with simple ingredients that I invariably have on hand.

Now you know that this PW (pastor's wife, not pioneer woman) would never lead you astray due to my Southern roots and hospitality and manners and all...  You must trust me when I tell you that this recipe will DELIGHT your soul and impress your guests, truly it will.  When you make it, I want to hear back from you!  (The recipe is for an 8x8 casserole, but I "doubled" it in the pictures below...double the goodness.)
 
INGREDIENTS (in order of use):

6 tablespoons butter
1 cup self-rising flour
3/4 cup white sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups boiling water

DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Melt butter in an 8x8 inch baking dish while the oven preheats.
3. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, 3/4 cup sugar, and 1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa.
4. Stir in milk and vanilla until smooth.
5. Spoon this batter over the melted butter in the baking dish.
6. Stir together the remaining 1 cup of sugar and 1/4 cup cocoa powder.
7. Sprinkle over the batter.
8. Slowly pour the boiling water over the top of the mixture.
9. Bake until "set" for 30-35 minutes in the preheated oven. The crust will rise to the top.
It is wonderful just as it is, and also good served while still warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side, or on the top...

Go ahead and just do the math and DOUBLE it!
Use a 9x13 pan...you'll be glad you did!
