I attended Up From The Ashes last year in 2015. The theme was “HE COMPLETES ME!” I left there feeling empowered.  It was confirmed in my spirit that the way that I am is not a mistake and that God made me this way for a reason.  That day I decided to come into agreement with God that I am fearfully and wonderfully made.  I have everything that I need to be whole and complete because He made me in His image.  Thank you Pastor Karen for allowing God to use you and your guests in such a mighty way.   I will forever be in attendance!
