Hello everyone! I feel it's important to start this week by addressing some of the questions that are reoccurring weekly. The first question I am asked frequently is, "What type of Church is Free Chapel?" Our church, Free Chapel OC, is a non-denominational Christian church. You are correct to think that our church is not traditional and not rigid. Free Chapel is such a great fit for my family for many reasons. #1. Pastor Jentzen is so genuine. You cannot fake genuineness. #2. It is a contemporary church. #3. I have fun at every service and STILL receive a huge word from the LORD. One thing I know is that God has a sense of humor and does not mind if you laugh while you are learning about him.

Another question I am often asked is where that orange dress came from that I wore in Florida. Well, all I am going to say about the orange dress is... There is a huge surprise coming soon. You will just have to wait and see!

This week you see my reaction when I discovered Tamra would not be attending Gretchen's Tupperware party because of the blog Gretchen has posted on her website. I have a motto that I live by and that is: Go by your own experiences with each person, and not by another person's experience. This may not be the easiest road to take, but I truly cannot side with either woman. I was not present last year when everything went down, and I cannot, for one minute, act as though I'm able to keep all the facts straight. All I can do is listen to both sides of Tamra and Gretchen's argument, and go by my own experiences with each of them. So with that said, I truly was completely shocked to learn Gretchen had a blog up about Tamra at a time I thought they were 'burying the hatchet.' However, after being friends with both of these girls for nine months now, I am very aware that they both have GOOD POINTS. One thing I have learned is that I need to let Gretchen and Tamra hash out their own differences. When I read the blog on Gretchen's website, I realized that it really is factual. There is not bad-mouthing or name-calling, it is simply stating the facts of what Gretchen feels has occurred. Now with that said, I also know Tamra has some valid points about what she feels has occurred. So it's best for me to STOP trying to make peace between two adult women, and simply let them work it out...or not! All I know is that I love them both and they are both freaking funny!
