This past weekend was so awesome guys! Such a great time to spend with you all in one place for longer than 2 hours! :D One of the biggest blessings to me was how much talk, conversation, and intentional use of the Spiritual Gifts. This is something that the Lord has really been pouring to my heart and pounding into my head over this past year. Couple that with this past weekend and add what our Church Leadership and Family at RockHarbor is doing, I am really inspired!!

I just wanted to encourage you ALL to continue to walk towards the Lord and risk for Him! Use the spiritual gifts He has given you, develop them! If you are not sure what they are, I would encourage you to pray about them specifically. He will show you what they are, and 9 times out 10 you are using them without realizing it! As long as your concern is for His glory you are safe in the center of His will! During worship I looked across the circle of us slices and saw Kate praying and singing. I got an, for lack of a better term, "image". When I say "image" in this context it's more of a braiding of an image, inspiration, and insight. That sounds much move convoluted/complex than it needs to. Basically we all know how the Spirit speaks to us individually, He spoke to me in this. So during the study and I drew what I saw and felt, praying about it here and there and listened to Darin teach. I could have kept that to myself and that could have been the end of it, that would have been the comfortable thing to do. What if my silly drawing was way off, what if it wasn't any of my business to do that, what if? what if? what if? Instead i didn't mind risking and showing her. Thirty minutes and two smores later we had an awesome conversation! It was encouraging to her and me. When we willingly walk into what the Lord has for us Glory is generated.

So thank you again for all of your hearts and minds! The Lords is almighty and POWERFUL! WE WILL WALK IN THAT POWER!


  1. this is so cool.
    your gifting is so amazing & inspiring.
    so glad you are in Circles.
    you bring joy & laughter everywhere you go.

  2. thank you for the conversations we had at the retreat, frank. ah, i just love being around you! thank you for encouraging us. i've been wondering about spiritual gifts since the retreat. not sure what to think. you are wonderful.

  3. What you said about spiritual gifts is just what I have been wondering. I am one of those people that feels like they have no clue what mine are, but your 9 times out of 10 was an interesting realization that I just had. So now I have a new way to enter and approach prayer, so thankyou for that!

  4. Thanks for writing this Frankie. I know we also had a little conversation about giftings in which you gave me some excellent insight and advice (like you always do). I love having conversations with you because they are always awesome. I'm still trying to figure out what my unique giftings. I know I have them, I just need to recognize them.

  5. yay : ) thank you so much for the encouragement!!!!
