Women of Faith Pictures

Here are a few pictures from the Women of Faith Conference.



Mark Schultz blessed my socks off with his music. I'll be downloading his tunes from iTunes.

Anita Renfroe performed her MommySense song right away. She has a new one that she performed that will be out later this year called "Before I Eat" done to Carrie Underwood's "Before He Cheats." I rolled out of my chair on that one and I'll be getting that DVD when released.

Patsy Clairmont! What can I say? She's such a hip lady. I want to be more like her--her laughter, light-heartedness, and cool clothes!

On the concourse with my friend Tiffany, me, and Marina. We had a hoot of a time between the shows!

Mandisa! She shared her testimony of the trials with American Idol and her food addiction. I could so relate to her issues with food as I have the same problems. I'm glad I had the opportunity to have my picture taken with her.

Thelma Wells! I just wish I could hug her!! I would love to adopt her as my grandma. She told her escort to stop and let me take this picture. Thank you Thelma! You're so sweet!

There's so much...but if I posted it all it would take me three days to write it and you three days to read it. To summarize:

I received encouragement from the Women of Faith conference. I didnt know what to expect. This conference was a lot of entertainment--comedy, drama, singing and very professionally done. Fabulous men and women of God spreading the gospel through their talents. After Max Lucado, it was reported that 640 people gave their lives to the Lord!!

I'm glad I had this experience. I want to thank the Lord, for He opened so many doors for me to attend and paid the way for many of the expenses that made it possible for me to go. Thank You my Lord!

Hop on over to Marina's blog. She's posted lots more pictures of us at the conference.

Blessings in Christ--
