Sew, MamaC, Camer Jas, Rasputin...and anyone else, everyone else....

The conference was absolutely awesome, healing, incredible, etc. etc. etc.
Real live women who are just like you and me, only some of the women have been through so much more than I...and their joy is so great, in spite of everything.

I had one of the best seats in the T & M, donw on the floor, second row, 10 ft from the stage. the music....the praise, the worship, with Amy Grant, Natalie Grant, Sandi Patty, Kathy Troccoli, Tammy Trent, Chonda Pierce, CiCi Winans, Nicole NOrdeman, Steven Curtis Chapman, all of it the speakers, Thelma Wells, Patsy Clairmont, Shiela Walsh, Jennifer Rothchild, Nicole Johnson, Luci Swindoll...Chuck Swindoll's sister, and Maariyn Meberg, Nicole Johnson, Carol Kent...all women from their 30's to their 70's, sharing their stories, and their victories in those stories...

It was like a mini-vacation for me, God ministred to me thorough these womwn, through the music, and the sweet spirit-filled 73 yr. old grandmother, that was so full of wisdom, and so full of God.

Also! one of the speakers was Stormie Omaritian, who wrote the books "How to Pray for your Wife" and 'How to Pray for your Husband"...among other books about prayer...and hoe the power of praise and prayer, God can change your life. This woman told her story: She was locked in a closet by her mentally ill mother when she was a little girl, every day of her life. He father worked long hours, ignored her, never rescued her or let her out of the closet. Her mother divorced her father, they moved to Ca, they were poor, she never knew if she was going to eat or when, whe was hungry all of the time, rats ran across a dirty bed that she slept with on the floor. She grew up got married, she and her husband had horrible problems, she hated him, and she asked God to change her,..and he did. There is more to the story, but all of these women shared their testimony, their lives and how God changes lives.
Julia Rothchild, blind since 15 years old, a beautiful woman, married, two boys, has neve seen either of them....has written a book about being in the dark....that she has learned that her value does not depend on who she is, or not how she looks, her mirror is Jesus Christ. She said that she had truly learned that "It is well with my soul"...maybe some remember this song.
The stories of faith in this weekend among 10,000 women, and God in that place was awesome!
Julia Shepherd the actress/comedian gave her testimony. Her story before she became a Christian, and her story after she became a Christian was one that touched many there.
We laughed, we sang, we worshipped, and we cried. God is awesome, powerful, your best friend...my best friend.

If you eve rhave the cahnce to go to one of these weekends, The Women of Faith...GO!!

OMW:

What a blessing you had this weekend.

Stormie Omartian has a while series of books: Power of the Praying Wife, Power of the Praying Parent, Power of the Praying Husband, etc. etc. I have these three. They are absolutely awesome books, and it's amazing what praying for your spouse, child, whoever can do. Specially when you pray for them daily. (and no, not to manipulate them.)

Take what you have learned and keep the candle burning. So many have the experience you've had and then go back to their hum drum life. They let the flame on the candle go out. What a waste. You keep your fire burning and use it to do good things for God.

What a blessing you've had. WOW!

Keep the candle burning....and I thought about that...how it is easy to get a high from a weekend such as this, and then go back to normal. I see things differently...and my middle son has taken it on him self to "take care of mom" in the spiritual dept...so I am letting him. Will keep going to church, SS, and may pick up a women's Bible study, but am also going to go back this week to start leading a 12 Step group. Keeping connected...is what it is about, and God will do the rest!!
