This past Friday night in Springfield, MO at James River “Run Like a Girl” Women’s Rally, and it was a great turnout of registrants and volunteers - 2,000 total. I can honestly say that speaking at this event was extra special! Anyone who knows me very well can vouch for my love for sports. Some of my favorite verses in the Bible are those that admonish or talk about training to win the prize and be the best you can be for God. It was definitely a night to remember!!

The theme scripture for the night was Hebrews 12: 1-2 (CEV), “Such a large crowd of witnesses is all around us! So we must get rid of everything that slows us down, especially the sin that just won't let go. And we must be determined to run the race that is ahead of us. We must keep our eyes on Jesus, who leads us and makes our faith complete.” This scripture was even printed on an event shirt that I had the privilege of wearing while I was speaking – SO FUN!!!

Debbie Lindell is an amazing leader (Pictured right). She knows how to gather and inspire women of all ages to work together to serve the needs of humanity. There was even a post-rally party that lasted until almost midnight, and the women had a chance to show off their sports skills with such games as flag football, basketball, volleyball, dodge ball, and a take-off of The Amazing Race. It was an amazing set up as they had the games set up on the vast grounds outside the church!

If you think this looks cool, you need to consider attending Debbie’s annual women’s conference, Designed for Life, September 30 – October 2, 2010 – click here to check it out. You will definitely not be disappointed!!!

I want to personally thank Debbie and her team for an amazing time!
