♀ Dare to Be †

 A well spent Saturday afternoon...
 I took my mother in-law to this great event for women!!!
Dare to Be !!!!
Natalie Grant & Charlotte Gambill 
are such an inspiration to women!!!


About Dare To Be

The word Dare can have a variety of different meanings. Have you ever had any one say to you “Do it! I Dare you!” Probably so! But more than likely it was when you were young and your friends wanted you to eat something crazy or stay up later than you were supposed to. And there was something fun about accepting that challenge….. about walking into the unknown and taking a risk. Not knowing where it will lead or what will happen.

However, as time marches on in our lives the risks we take start to lessen and lessen. The warm blanket of comfort and familiarity comes over us and we let go of that sense of adventure and wonder.

The wild thing about God is that He continues to call us to step out and take risks to trust Him. To Dare to be who He created us to be. What does that look like for you?

This event is designed to speak directly to the part of you that tends to shy away from stepping out into the unknown. God is calling you on an adventure that is unlike anyone else’s journey—it is designed specifically for you! This is a journey that you don’t want to miss. It is yours to experience with your Creator.

So the Dare has been set before you. We cannot wait to see what will happen as you continue to accept the challenge and Dare to Be!

An interview with Natalie Grant & Charlotte Gambill

 We arrived at City Life Church in Tampa and my mother in-law is already shopping!
I bought the Dare to Be Devotional book by Natalie Grant & Charlotte Gambill

and my mother in-law bought me a Dare to Be bracelet that I just love !!!  
It was a full house of women !!!!
Both shows were sold out today !!!
A few pics of us at the event ....
Natalie Grant is an awesome singer !!! 
I have her latest CD -Hurricane!!!!
I tried to record one song "I Will Not Be Moved

We all lit our candles while Natalie sang the song 
"Burn Bright "
I kept my candle and wrote the words Burn Bright 
so I can remember to keep my flame burning!!! 
When we are stressed out in our own lives we forget what the true focus really is and we sortof lose ourselves in the midst of things that we need to focus on Jesus and our family and friends ! 
Hand over our troubles to God ! Focus on who we were meant to be !
I haven't been feeling  well and I'm in a lil rut right (AKA via Charlotte-I'm in the Middle)
now but I know GOD has put me in TIME-OUT 
 so I can focus on me for the moment !

We enjoyed all the songs from Natalie and we were moved
 by Charlotte's Spiritual teachings.
As we were leaving we decided to take some silly pictures in the Children's play area ...

 I really enjoyed this afternoon . 
After the show we went to the International mall for dinner 
at the Cheesecake Factory and then
 enjoyed  some Ice cream after we did some browsing through the mall. 
It was such a great day with my Mother in-law !!!!
We always have a fun time together!!!
I really enjoyed her company !!!!
