The theme for our 2016 event is “Rewritten: His story, Your life,” based on the scripture from Psalm 139:16, “Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” What a huge truth with lots of layers, but underneath is God’s sovereignty in all things and His great love for each of us individually. He has planned our days – each one – in His desire to see us know Him and honor Him with our lives. God’s love for each of us is truly amazing!! His plan is also amazing for each child and family served through the ministries of Florida Baptist Children’s Homes. So, our Rewritten theme speaks of our own lives as well as how we can help “rewrite” the stories of children and families in great need.
This theme will come to life for us throughout our day together in February with incredible inspiration from guest speaker, Allison Allen.
Allison has a message you will want to hear. On her website, Allison says, “Everybody’s got one – a story that is.” She goes on to say that “ours is a divine story, an epic tale penned by God Himself.” Allison asks questions that are worthy of our consideration, “As believers, exactly how do we manage to tell a better story with our lives? How do we interact with the characters we encounter? How do we adjust when we’re blindsided by a plot-twist we didn’t see coming? How do we reflect the Author in the nitty-gritty of everyday life? And, finally, how do we encourage others to see the divine fingerprints evident in their own stories?” Allison’s background in drama, theater and writing will come out in her presentation to encourage us all to dare to tell a better story with our lives. A former speaker with Women of Faith, Allison is married to a worship pastor and has two sons. She is passionate about taking the journey with God’s women in telling a better story.
In addition to Allison, our day will include special music, ministry updates, personal testimonies, a delicious lunch, laughter and more. The more, to me, is really about the best part because it’s about the relationships. Enjoying a day with so many wonderful women, renewing friendships, encouraging one another – all with the primary goal of combining our resources to help reach just one more child through the ministries of Florida Baptist Children’s Homes, One More Child and The Porch Light.
