Women Of Faith Weekend

Earlier this month I won tickets (from the radio station that I listen to- KXOJ 101.1) to attend Women of Faith in Tulsa on August 67 & 28. Pretty exciting since I never win anything! I was really excited to go even though it didn't work out for anyone to go with me.
The program was called "Imagine" this year based on Ephesians 3:20. "Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us..."
The worship team was pretty great!
Sheila Walsh was the main speaker over the weekend. She spoke on trust, which just goes along with what I am learning about. Imagine that! Apparently the Lord is going to use every opportunity to bring that before me! Here is a thought to ponder:
Do I trust God? Ask yourself these questions.
1. How often do I feel the need to control?
2. How often do I feel like my life is governed by fear of anxiety?
3. Do I ever feel disconnected from God or others?

I thought this was just way cool - A shepherd leads the sheep. He doesn't walk behind them. He walks ahead of the sheep and makes sure the way is clear. If even just ONE of the sheep gets hung up the shepherd will go and get that sheep! Christ is my shepherd! He is NOT going to leave me behind! I CAN trust in Him to take care of me NO MATTER WHAT!!

I met these great girls (Shari & Tracey from Mountain Home, Arkansas) on Friday morning. They quickly asked me to hang out with them for the day. We ended up eating lunch together and then later in the day when we had a long break, we ended up going to the bookstore together and to dinner! Crazy!

The drama performed by Katharine Everett was amazing!
Karen James lost her husband in the Mt. Hood Tragedy in 2006. It was heartbreaking to listen to her story, but so amazing to hear how God has worked in her life since then!
Yes, I took a picture of my lunch. DORK!
You would never have known that I just met these ladies the day before! I had such a great time hanging out with them for two days!!
Natalie Grant ROCKED!!! She sounded great even with bronchitis! I wish I sounded that bad when I'm sick!
Michelle Aguilar: Winner of The Biggest Loser Season 6! Love her!
The Q&A time with everyone was hilarious! Good times!!
