5 top moments/speakers that impacted me the most at #Shine2012. 5. Christine Caine — Seriously, every time she speaks I feel the charge to press through and chase all that God is imparting in the deepest part of my soul. I am constantly inspired by this woman. I would encourage anyone who missed her message the last session of Shine to buy it — it will wreck you in the best way imaginable. ( I am currently allowing God to dig out all I am to build the foundation of His platform ) 4. Kerri Weems & Holly Wagner: This year my beautiful pastor and the epic Holly Wagner spoke about walking into the new seasons of life with courage. I am currently in major transition and after listening to them speak on being fearless in the next season I feel empowered to step mightily into the rain. “Fruit doesn’t grow on the mountain top, it’s grows in the valley” – Holly Wagner 3. My Group: I was able to serve alongside my girls this year. And I truly believe serving alongside each other in the house of God moved our relationship from friends to sisters. #wholenuthalevel 2. Friday Morning Worship: This year I sang one session and I helped Linda host the other sessions so she could prepare for her breakout session. In all the Shine conferences I have ever been a part of what happened Friday morning goes down in history as the most epic worship session ever. Not only was I able to sing along side my best friends ( lindseystar and Jules ) but God totally took that service to a higher level and just to be a part of it was UNBELIEVABLE! God really does give you the desires of your heart if you make his kingdom your primary concern! 1. Serving: This year again I was pushed WAY past my comfort zone. I walked alongside one of the people I honor the most and served at a capacity that stretched me and left me emotionally sore ( in a good way ). I saw things that opened my heart and moved me to love more, and to see with new eyes. I pray that I can continue to serve with an open and transparent heart the way Jesus served. Honorable Mentions: – Judah Smith “Bethel” dancing across the stage – Dr. Caroline Leaf’s accent — WIN – Finding out Lisa Bevere is coming to Shine 2013 — YES!!!
– Thank you Pastor Kerri for your vision and allowing the girls in the house to serve and learn from you. You truly are impacting generations. Love you, Charise
