I enjoyed my first Women of Faith experience. It wasn’t quite what I expected, but I guess I’m not sure what I expected. So I’m not sure how to recap it for you. In fact, I started to and realized it was way too boring. I expected more Bible teaching ala Beth Moore or Kay Arthur style. All of the speakers were phenomenal and told fabulous stories. I didn’t have any “aha” moments or really perceive anything too deep into my life, but I guess that’s not where I’m at right now. Really, I just needed a breather and a good laugh, which Anita Renfroe so willingly provided. That lady is just way too funny. If you haven’t seen her Mom Sense video on You Tube, Go. Right now. Watch it. You can find it by searching her name on You Tube. She’s geniously funny. The surprise for me was how much I enjoyed hearing Sandi Patty sing and lead worship. That lady can sing. I want to sing like her in heaven. Wow. And I’d like jeans like Nicole C. Mullen had. But I’d like those down here, not in heaven. Although if we can wear jeans in heaven, I’d take a pair with fringe on the bottom and bedazzled up the leg. But I’m pretty sure I could make a pair of my own down here. Not sure I can manage to get her toned arms though. That lady is super woman if there ever was one. She can sing, play the keys and guitar, dance, mom to 4 kids and be amazingly tone. Yeah. And Max Lucado is probably one of the kindest most compassionate men you will ever meet. I didn’t meet him, but judging his demeanor on the big screen, he’s a pretty loving man.
And that’s about all I have to say for the actual conference. I laughed. I cried. I wondered why in the world I’d need a Women of Faith manicure set or credit card, but that’s a different thought on commercialization. Like I said, I’ll go again next year, and I’ll be looking for a few books the speakers have written. Not that I’ll actually finish them. I don’t think I have read a complete book since I had kids. I keep trying. Maybe in 2008!!
