When my son, Clayton, was three years old, our local theater had a cheap summer movie series. They featured cartoon movies for just $2âand that included the popcorn!
Now, if youâre a new podcast listener, this might be a good time to tell you that Iâm blind. And, by the third film in the series, I needed a way to entertain myself while Clayton and the friends we went with enjoyed the 90 minutes of cartoon silliness.
She came, she saw, and she was in awe! God was so good to us this weekend at Fresh Grounded Faith Springfield!

The theme was âShe Canâ and our verse was Philippians 4:13, âI can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.â We learned to speak the three hope confessions of âShe Canâ women and the three actions of a âShe Can woman.â Wow is all I can say!
I not only taught the truth of Philippians 4:13 from the stage, but we also saw it on stage in my friends, Katherine Wolf and Sheila Walsh. Katherine taught us that the good things often are the hard things, and Sheila encouraged us to invite God into all areas of our livesâincluding our past and our shame.
Now, you might assume that one of the fringe benefits of blindness is that I canât tell when Iâm having a bad hair day. Not so! I donât have to see my hair in the mirror to know that it looks uglyâI can feel it!
And, as I was preparing to speak at a local womenâs event one day, I was feeling it! I knew my hair looked bad.
