God is Your Protector

Today we heard from one of our North Dakota Godly Girlfriends, Heidi, with a story about her five year old warrior princess, Gracie: 

Girls! My 5 yr. old GRACIE told me about her day today - get this!!! 

She said "I played Godly Girlfriends at lunch today!" 

I asked, "How do you play that?"  

"Well, I stand on the slide and yell 'God is my protector' !"

On my gosh!! How precious is that???

My cup runneth over! 

I am constantly reminded of God's love through my girls. 

And to think that when I leave for retreats 

and such, that I think about my girls missing me, and I debate whether or not to go.

I realize that I am impacting 

them in ways I had no idea!!! I was so blown away with Gracie's game!! 

She told me, "The other girls play Monster High, Mom, but not me.

Sometimes I just play alone, but sometimes my friends join me."

Out of the mouth of a 5 year old! Spread the news!!

Godly Girlfriends is working and you are changing hearts!!! Young and old!

 Can't you just imagine Gracie all decked out in her pink armor (that is toboggan, gloves, jacket, and boots) standing firm at the top of the cold, icy slide, shaking her fist in that monster's face.
"I am NOT afraid! GOD is MY Protector. I will not FEAR!"

 What about us? What do we do when we stand at the top of this sometimes slippery slope called life? Can we shake our fist in the face of monsters who have names like fear, and disappointment, and rejection, and pain, and loss, and worry, and choose to play alone exhaling warmth from the bottom of our lungs, and yell as loud as we can, "GOD IS MY PROTECTOR".  And really believe it.


The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior: my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety. (Psalm 18;2)

Shout to the LORD, all the earth; break out in praise and sing for joy. (Psalm 98:4)


Thanks, Heidi, for sharing.

Make your plans to attend the next Godly Girlfriends Retreat. It's all about a Warrior Woman named, Deborah. And it's all about empowering us to know without a single doubt that 

God is our Protector

See you soon.

One Word Testimonies

The KING is ENTHRALLED with your Beauty
(Psalm 45:11)

 Godly Girlfriends Texas Retreat met at Beautiful Camp Butman, Merkel Texas for a Night with THE KING.

We have a few one word testimonies about the retreat.










Moms & Daughters


And More Sisters

(Signing Class)



The Wrong King
The Lost Sister


 and Shopping

What more could a girl ask for - 
shopping, crafting, laughing, eating, singing, dancing,  a sleep-over, and playing dress-up!

But more than anything, we heard over and over how our KING is enthralled, delighted, attracted, ravished, by our beauty. We heard and believed that we, like the orphan turned Queen Esther are also chosen for such a time as this. 

We believed that we are HIS princesses. 
We worshipped HIM. 
We spent time in HIS presence. 
And we surrendered to OUR KING.

Who is this KING OF GLORY?
 The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.
(Psalm 24:8)

He is enthralled by YOUR beauty, too.

Godly Girlfriends North Dakota 2014

 In May of 2014, 29 Texas Godly Girlfriends in pink shirts boarded a silver eagle bound for North Dakota and joined me for the first annual Godly Girlfriend Retreat North Dakota.  These girls made lasting impressions everywhere they went, sharing the joy of Jesus and praying for folks. Denver International Airport may never be the same!

As north met south, new friendships were born, encouragement was dispensed like medicine for the soul, and God turned our ashes into beauty (provide for those who grieve in Zion-- to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor. Isaiah 61:3). And miracle of miracles, we were invited back!  See you soon, North Dakota!
