Friday Date Night - Ministry & Basketball

Hey Covenant Groupies,

So, this past Friday, Kevin and I had a great date night. I wanted to post it up on Saturday, but instead we decided to continue it on Saturday. As a publicist for many-many years, I have garnered so many great relationships and a great friend of mine (Saideh Browne) invited us to an event to support Breast Cancer Awareness at Madison Square Garden. Dah, a basketball game and a way to help others for the Glory of God? Heck yeah. Kevin and I love all sports and this would make for an amazing night.

While there, we learned about the Women’s Cancer Alliance and the many ways to support the organization, how to perform a self breast exam, what to ask at your next doctor’s visits, and how to cope with it, God forbid, should it visit your home. Please support this organization by visiting:

We watched the Knicks beat the 76ers 92-88. Yeah we know the Knicks have been disappointing, but they pulled it out. It was so much fun!!!!!!

Something interesting happened this night while we were there. I was among some great women and, for a minute, got caught up with spending time with Kevin at the event instead of communing with the women. After about 20 minutes, I felt a nudge from the Lord to get up and chat with the ladies. We started talking about who we were and what we did. One lady asked a question about blogging which led to a marriage conversation. We discussed working and living with and praying for our husbands. I told her how difficult it was, initially, for Kevin and me to get acclimated to our environment of love, work, and home.

After which, she spoke to Kevin to better understand how to support her husband and we’ve committed to pray for her and her husband. I love that no matter where we go, God has work for us to do.

Then Saturday, we stayed in and just talked for hours about our marriage, other marriages, our ministry, our work, our family and s much more. It was a great ending to a date night.
