I was listening to yesterday’s Girlfriendit Radio Show titled “How to Make a Sudden Impact,” and something that guest, Allen McCray said struck me about FUN. He said that in his earlier years, surrounded by legalistic viewpoints, he believed that if you were having FUN you must be doing something bad, evil or sinful. In order to be a good person or a good Christian, you must always be serious and Bible thumperish.
I have to say that this is what I grew up believing. Rather than dissect why I believed that—can we just say it’s wrong! I believe Jesus had FUN and our God has a FUN personality and we girlfriends are wired in His image of FUN! (I like to remind myself about Jesus and we know He turned water into wine—at least He wasn’t a party pooper. He celebrated the Passover with His disciples. He walked on water AND invited his friend to walk with Him….now doesn’t that sound like FUN!?!)
Do you struggle making time for FUN in your day, your week, your month, your year?
|My husband having FUN cheering on |

For those of you FUN seekers…you princesses with personalities raring to go for every party and turning every gathering into a party please be courageous and share some of you FUN stories. What do you do for FUN? Please share at least one FUN thing that you have planned this weekend.
You never know what FUN may transpire.
Then, for FUN go listen to yesterday’s Girlfriendit Show and hear Sheryl Cooper share the fun ministry that her and her husband, Alice Cooper have created call Solid Rock Ministries. Be inspired to read Acts and recognize the Holy Spirit running through your veins to make a sudden impact in our world. Then also hear more about how Allen McCray turned his own need into ministry. Be ready girlfriends, embrace the reflection of God in you and understand your God-given personality—then use it for His glory--you can count on it being FUN!
