Flourish: grow, thrive, prosper, do well, increase, multiply
Flourish: a bold or extravagant gesture or action
Spring is always such an inspiring season in Ohio. Everything that looked as if it were dead begins to once again show signs of it’s hidden life. Leaves reappear, flowers bud, daffodils pop up from within the still chilly dirt. It is a beautiful picture of what it means to really flourish because even in the bitter cold days of winter those leafless trees and daffodil bulbs were thriving. The warmer and somewhat rainy days of spring make an extravagant gesture that brings everything hidden into sight. Once again we are reassured of the strength of life nature has always contained. It was flourishing all along we just couldn’t see it as well.
We too can learn to flourish in every season of our life. Cold, rain, sunshine or cloudy. God has breathed his life into us and it’s in him we live, breath and have our life. This year as we gather my prayer is that you will be encouraged as together we learn how to grow in every circumstance.I’m praying that what you think youve lost you will discover has only been hidden for a moment. Together let’s make a bold extravagant gesture that brings heaven to earth and renewed life to our souls.
I’m bringing some new friends along to inspired. this year & can’t wait for you to meet them ñ as well as some favorite long time friends. Our conference speakers are all incredibly inspiring women who I know will bring a refreshing message to us. There are a few additions to our schedule this year that I believe you are going to love.
Thank you for inviting your friends to come along with you too. I’ve included an invitation here for you to share. And moms, I especially want to encourage you to bring along your young daughters. We have something special planned for our junior high and high school girls. It’s always a part of our prayer to inspire women and girls in every stage of life.
