So Long, Insecurity

On April 24th, my friends Leah, Kristen and I joined about 10,000 other ladies at First Baptist Church in Woodstock, GA and 300,000 worldwide to hear Beth Moore speak on her book So Long, Insecurity. Yes, I am slow but it has taken me this long to process everything. It was wonderful day of worship and fellowship with old friends and new. I am ready to say goodbye forever to my insecurities. They have taken up too much space in my life

Here are some of the points of the day: A Secure Woman is:

  1. Saved from herself (Insecurity is a twisted from of self-interest)
  2. Entitled to truth (The more we live withdrawn, the darker our thinking becomes)
  3. Clothed with intention (We can't be weak willed women)
  4. Upended by grace (Grace is the only thing that we can give away that we can also keep)
  5. Rebounded by love (We are loved by God regardless of our pasts)
  6. Exceptional in life

We traveled to Atlanta the day before the event for some girl time. I hadn't seen Kristen for several months and there was a lot of catching up to do. Kristen had never been to Phipps Plaza and so we decided that it would be a good place to get a bite to eat and do a little shopping.

We then met a group of Siestas at Pappasito's for dinner. I knew a few of these women through their blogs but hadn't met them in person. It was a great time with about 30 ladies. And the Mariachi Band!

Lora and me. I was so excited to meet her. I feel like I have known her forever. I also met Yolanda and Georgia Jan, but failed to get a picture of them. I was so excited it's a wonder I got any pictures at all!

And no Mexican dinner is complete without a Mariachi Band!

Wish I'd seen you! It was a great day. I'm still processing it myself. The book is eating me up, in the best way.

You know what was fun for me here? Seeing faces of some bloggers I've come to love but have never met... Leah, Lora, and Yolanda! What fun I know you had with them and others. Wish I could have been there. I hope to read Beth's book this summer, as she is one of my favorite mentors.

Hi there. I stumbled upon your blog as I was clicking the "next blog" at the top of the blogger page and I love your blog! I am new to the blogging world. Just started 2 weeks ago. By the way, a fellow blogging friend I just met has recommended I read this same book. She said it changed her life. I have a very low self esteem and care way too much about what people think of me. I was encouraged that you also enjoyed it. I will have to go read it soon :) I will also continue to check back on your blog for new updates and posts!

WOW Cindy it looks like all where having a good time!! I know Yolanda, Lora and Karen online and would love to meet them in person. Karen and I have communicated via Email about hooking up.

Wish I could meet you as well! :)

I haven't read Beth's book as my collection of books is unbelievable and I committed not to buy another until all of these are read (smile) but I also get books as gifts from sweet people so this book is on the list to read.

Thanks for sharing with us. I've been reading several of your posts today so now I'll comment on all of them (smile). I've enjoyed my visit.

Hugs and blessings.
