So, one night, a girl brought a brand new $700 dress and veil with the tags on to my front door and said... "Use it for God's glory.... if it fits".
The day before the conference I decided I was too chicken to do what God was calling me to do.
That is Tim as Christ and Phil as "the enemy". Phil was the only one of us who knew how to act. He was so scary during rehearsals that I didn't even like rehearsing. Phil loves Jesus so was happy to be a part of the gospel drama even though he had to pretend to be evil.
I love these two pictures. They reflect powerful truth in MY personal walk with the Lord. It wasn't really hard play "the girl" since I am "the girl". We had prayed about what to write on those signs to reach hearts and the lady who made the signs for me decided on those six words.
Here is the panel of 5 cute, godly guys who answered their questions. Total hit.
Tiffany rocks. She was created to do this. So beautiful up there and her voice is STUNNING! Helping these girls move toward God in worship and washing them with God's Word in song.
That is Lisa ( a mentor of mine) on the left. Lisa is like a momma to all of us and keeps me IN LINE. She is no nonsense about following Jesus. You either get on the train or get left. She is such a resource to all of us. We are all taking notes when she talks.
Ok, now back to Mellette. God did a huge work in Mellette's heart. She understood the gospel and it has radically changed her life. She is a powerhouse speaker for young girls.
I am so proud of her and her life constantly shows me the power of the gospel in a heart. She is amazing. She is single... but not for long. Can't wait to see God's fairytale for her! God is currently batting 1000 in writing love stories for the girls who trust Him for marriage. Keep your eyes on Mellette, girls. If you question the power of God to bring a godly husband, just watch what happens in Mellette's life. I can't wait!! She may have her own TV show. The godly guys will be lining up for her! She is a total catch and guys are starting to figure that out.
But, there will be one who is different.
He will recognize her and she will recognize him. ;) (Romans 12:1,2)
moowaaahaahaaa! I can't wait!!!!
Lisa+Tiffany+Mellette+Tim and the band+the counselors+the behind-the-scenes workers+prayer warriors=
I may have pee-peed in my pants during this. If only you could have seen us sneak him in and me pushing him on stage from behind the black curtain!! I lost my mind for a few minutes. I was SO excited.
He said, "I could sit here and tell you all the reasons I love you and how I think you are beautiful but you have been teaching the girls all weekend what to do while they wait. Well, I am here to tell you one thing.... (gets down on one knee)... you don't have to wait anymore! Will you marry me?"
BLAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAAAHHAAAAAHAAA! Everybody was crying! Even the big tough guys in the band! It was CLASSIC GOD! The girls got to see Tiffany's God fairytale unfold before their eyes!
I saw the power of God that weekend. It was amazing. Serving God with Tim is the coolest thing we have done together! Way better than date nights watching some silly movie. These are our new "date nights". I have so much respect for my husband. I am so thankful God brought me a godly man to lead me and serve with! What a gift He is!!!
Almost all the feedback from the girls I got said the same thing, "I was overwhelmed by God's love for me".
That was exactly what we prayed would happen!
I could write and write but I have a cute guy waiting on me to come to bed. If you want to know more about it, you will have to come to the next one!
I have also had a few rough days...
I fell down some steps while holding Hope on Sunday and thought I broke my tailbone. I am doing better but have been going through a lot emotionally (worrying about 1 million things) and because of my bruised hiney. I will make a full recovery though- Praise God!
***Finally, I would like to announce the dates for
His Proposal 2.
It will be Oct 29, 30 in Knoxville Tennessee at Calvary Chapel Knoxville.
There are 300 seats and we are praying God fills them all. The band is reason enough to come but the message will change your life. If you know a young girl who needs to know how much God loves her, get her there!
John 3:16 has changed my life and is changing many others!
Come see us in Knoxville for an experience with God you won't forget.
Love and miss you all!
