Saturday Morning with Friends
For tickets contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
One of my favorite groups of Southern ladies have invited me to speak at their annual, Saturday Morning with Friends silent auction and breakfast at the First United Methodist Church in Pensacola, Florida. I am so excited, I just can’t wait!
Some of you will remember I was their speaker a few years ago, and it was one of the most enjoyable, well organized events I’ve ever seen. This team of women mean business when it comes to raising funds for good causes and have a ball while they do it. They are also world-class Southern cooks and serve the best grits I’ve ever had — no kidding! (Click Here for facebook and ticket info).
The breakfast previously had a red/Valentine’s Day theme, but since it’s scheduled for March this year, we’re all going green with a special “Seeing Green Auction.” Oh, how I love a good theme.
And speaking of themes, since St. Patrick’s Day reminds us of the luck of the Irish, I’ll be speaking on, “Happiness is not just Luck!”
What do you think about that? Have you ever been accused of being lucky, when in reality, you worked yourself to the bone to get to a place of happiness? Have you ever had God bring you to a peaceful place of joy only to have other people say, “you lucky dog!” (how dare they! hahaha!).
Seriously, share your thoughts in the comment section so I can get some feedback from you. If you are a personal friend, you know how shy I am and I may not have much to say unless you help me. — Hold on . . . must-get- a- Band-aid for my knee where I just fell out of my chair laughing!
Tickets are only $15 and include breakfast, shopping and laughter. You also get to see my green dress for free. The money raised benefits the Family Food Box Ministry that serves homebound folks in the Pensacola community. Some recipients are older, some have young children and others just need temporary help with good nutrition and love.
Also benefiting from this event will be the Methodist Youth Fellowship Outreach of the church. Adding to their general fund for on-campus activities, we will also raise funds for Scholarships for teens to attend a once-in-a-lifetime experience of Hiking a portion of the Appalaichain Trail. This program deepens their relationship with God and provides strong Christian mentors.
I’ve been on many, many church trips and can tell you how valuable they are, especially these days when teens are so bombarded with stressful social media and hurtful people. But if I get my choice of going with them on a hike, or raising money to send them . . . give me a green dress, and I’ll be a “sender!” I’ll even throw in prayer on top of it. (forgive me, and bless those who work with teenagers).
Saturday, March 7, 2020 is the date, and the auction starts at 8:30am with the breakfast following at 9:30am and the program at 10:30am.
Get your ticket by MARCH 1st!!! Details are on their facebook page.
We’ll have lots of laughs, and I’m sure you’ll meet nice new friends. I can’t wait to see you in Pensacola! (and for my Fairhope friends, it’s barely an hour away!)
Don’t forget to leave me a comment about your thoughts on happiness and luck!
