Girlfriends in God ~ and a recipe!

I had so much fun yesterday! I hosted a get together/meeting for all the gals helping with the Praise and Coffee/Loving Well Weekend. (To the girls who couldn't make it...we missed you!)

It was so cool to get all these women from different churches and walks of life together to hash out all the details of our conference. They had so much great input.

My heart for the Praise and Coffee ministry is to bring us all together in unity with the common cause of Christ, no matter what church we attend. With 9 churches represented, our get together was a beautiful snapshot of just that idea.

Then to top it off we had a powerful time of prayer for the conference and the Project Pamper outreach that we are coordinating with it.

I am so thankful to be a part of what God is doing among the ladies in the community, I can see us becoming Girlfriends in God and I am loving it!!!

For those of you that weren't there with us, I want to share an easy recipe with you that we all loved:

Lemon Blueberry Poppy Seed Bread

1 pkg. Duncan Hines Bakery style blueberry muffin mix
2 Tbls poppy seed
1 egg
1 Tbls grated lemon peel (I used lemon juice)

1/2 cup confection sugar
1 Tbls lemon juice

Heat oven to 350, grease and flour 8x4x2 loaf pan
(Rinse blueberries, set aside)

Combine mix & poppyseed. Break up lumps.
Add egg & water, stir.
Fold in blueberries & lemon peel. Pour into pan.
Sprinkle with contents of topping packet.

Bake 1 hour. Cool 10 minutes.
Remove from pan and pour drizzle over bread.
(Hint, use aluminum foil to stop topping from coming off.)

Invite a few girlfriends over and enjoy!!

This ministy is doing great things; all through God. When I am older; I want to become a writer. I want to write Christian books; that is my true goal. Though I am only 13 year old, I am thinking and writing about God. I know more than most people my age; because of all the dinner coversation about the bible and church. I learn a lot. I want this type of blog when I am older; I am trying to make my blog right now reflect God, and I pray that it may bring pagans to Jesus. Because of the fact that I love God and enjoy writing, I think that has lead me to want to become a writer. I have a long way to go; but with God anything is possible. Sorry for this long dragging comment; but I felt that I to say all this. I don't know if you understand; but it was just, "Lauren Ann, say what you are thinking right now, love God."
I am hoping you don't mind. I will be coming back to visit your blog; because it makes me think about God more, because what you write glorifies Him. I love your blog; really. I know I need to stop talking, but I can't make myself. I will, though, for your sake. You probably don't want to know everthing about my feelings and goals. *hugggggg*

God Bless,
Lauren Ann
