She did a great job of speaking truth from the scripture! God is a generous God -- we don't need to be afraid of missing out by inviting others in. There is enough to go around.

Wish we could be there! You’ll do amazing! Love you!

Heather’s gonna bring the word?! Can’t wait to hear you preach my friend! 😍
