The Gift of Friendship

Having a group of ladies to laugh, share, and connect with makes life so much richer. Connecting with women, whether crying or laughing, feeds the spirit and nourishes the heart.

During the first few months of 2010, The Live Love Laugh Club will be meeting twice a month—once at my house for prayer and deep, heartfelt conversations and once a month at a restaurant for a more lighthearted time of sharing.

Last week, a few of the ladies and I met at a restaurant to hang out and chat. It’s amazing what a few hours of cheerful gab can do for the spirit. It’s exciting to be a part of a group that’s growing closer together and helping one another to move forward.

Later in the year, the club will begin meeting more often to begin training together for a race. Our goal is to be healthy (mind, body, and soul). So when the weather is warmer we will hit the trails and start strengthening our bodies.

It’s going to be awesome to see the progress we make in 2010 as individuals and as a group. There is more power in numbers. Two together can do more than one by herself.

God meant for us to journey together. He knew when He created us that we would need fellowship with other believers.

How blessed we are to have been given the gift of friendship.

Amy, I am so excited at what God's doing in your group! I know that you are a blessing to each one there. How cool that you all get to actually run a physical race together....great symbolism.

I loved seeing how God is blessing your Live, Love, Laugh Club!

Love ya!
