After publishing our devotional, one of our greatest desires was to connect with this community of women face to face. I can honestly say, it has been the greatest privilege traveling city to city to meet our sisters. They come from all different backgrounds. They each have a story to tell. They are doing BIG things. By the end of the night, after talking with many of these women, 1 Corinthians 12:12 resounded in my heart.

The women who gathered with us that evening painted the perfect picture of the body of Christ. There were pastors, TV show writers, teachers, designers, photographers, entrepreneurs, nurses, stay at home mommas, bloggers, accountants, personal trainers, fitness models… there was even a chemical engineer! All very different parts of the body, working in different ways, AS ONE BODY to cover the earth with God’s love. Wow. What a great reminder that each of us play a very important role in the body of Christ. You are positioned to reach people I will never come into contact with. And just the same, I have the opportunity to love on people you may never know. Listen to me friends, YOU HAVE A PURPOSE. Don’t get lost in comparison or self-doubt. The body needs you! Plus, it’s just more fun with you by our side;)
Thank you to all the amazing women who joined us in LA! And to everyone else- we hope to see you soon! – xoxo, Kelly + Jenn
