Wheatful Woman Event: Birthday Bash + Worship Night

WHERE TO BEGIN. This is Britt Goff, founder of Wheat and Honey Co., and last Wednesday was our third Wheatful Woman Event.

 

We planned a modest back-yard, boho-themed, candlelit dinner and worship night to celebrate W&HC's 5th birthday. Less than 5 days before we welcomed our guests, God made it abundantly clear He had other plans.

 

Friday afternoon, we signed a contract with BRIK Venue Fort Worth due to torrential (quite literally) rain. We put our heads down, we prayed A LOT and we did what the intention of this event was to do, give HIM the Glory.

 

On Wednesday, we opened the doors to the BRIK and welcomed women, both local and a plane ride away, to celebrate all God is doing in our lives within this community and independent of it.

 

We had the most fabulous local businesses put together pop up shops for a marketplace (shout outs: The Sweet Hive, Hazie Sue Vintage, Winton and Waits, The Green Queen BI Am His Jewel, LD Naturals, and Spoiled by Annie), live music by Aryn Michelle, we gifted forty hand-painted Bibles to the Freedom Shield Foundation team (30 NIV, Journal the Word Bibles gifted by Harper Collins and 10 were graciously gifted by Living by Design Ministries), I spoke on hearing God's voice and living a life marked by courage and we ate a yummy dinner catered by Ida Claire.

 

 

The tables were beautifully decorated by Out of the Garden Floral, moments were captured by the talented Judy Rodriguez Photography, wine was served by Landon Winery and the stage was complete with a balloon display by our new friends Jessica and Alex of Pop! Fort Worth.

 

 

There were tears, lots of laughs and quite moments with the Lord. There were far more "moments" that matter so greatly to me to share here but I will summarize it with this: God sees this community of women and He INTENDS to use every one of us. It's beautiful. It's overwhelming. It matters.

 

 

 

These gatherings always leave us feeling overwhelmed with the Lord's Holy abundance. We are grateful for the space the Lord creates (time and time again) for us to rest, laugh and seek Him together. We hope to see you at our next event!

I cannot sign this post without a very special thank you to family, friends and our W&HC team that jumped all in when this event grew from a modest backyard event to a full blown Wheatful Woman Event over a weekend. I love each of you and your passion for this ministry does not go unnoticed or unappreciated. Thank you, Mary Beth, Jantzen, Katie, Jani, Hannah, Diana, Jessie, Erin, Jeff, Terry, my Polished Fort Worth girls, and my husband, Michael.

 

- Britt

The Importance of your Testimony
The Importance of your Testimony

September 22, 2021

Your story matters. Each time we are brave enough to allow people in and share what we've been through or currently going through, we’re trusting God with our testimony and giving Him permission to use our story to showcase His power or move in someone else’s life. Keep showing up in faith, being willing to tell others about what God has done for you and what He’s teaching you. Keep opening your heart with courage and vulnerability.  Because it’s not about US – it’s about HIM. We are just ...

There’s never a perfect Goldilocks season where you feel “just right.” You’re too young, and then one day you realize that you’re too old. There’s never an in-between.That is, unless you choose to believe that God can use you at ANY age for the plans He has for you.Use this as your reminder today that God doesn’t see you as the world sees you. He is not fazed by age-restrictions or traditional time frames. The Lord is never late and never early, and He wants us to trust His timing.When you re...

We don’t have to spend our life trying to measure up or please others around us. When God gives us direction, we can move forward with confidence. Not because we think we’ll be popular with others, but because we have the approval of God.
