What a time we have had this week in Nash-vegas for two big events…the National Women’s Leadership Forum at LifeWay and that little event last night called the CMA awards. Those country icons don’t have anything on our guy Travis who led us in some serious worship and even blessed us with a Christmas concert as he shared songs from his new album.
We had 500 incredible leaders from across the country like Liz from San Jose, CA and the sweet pastor’s wife slash women’s ministry leader who came by her self from the hills of New Mexico…and the girls right down the street from Mount Juliet, TN. We worshipped, shared ideas, had full breakouts and heard a great word from Kelly Minter and Angela Thomas yesterday. Basically we got together and told our stories…some hard stories, but all stories of God’s faithfulness. I’m not just talking about women dealing with one hard thing…but how about the woman who found herself near bankruptcy, with a serious illness and a teenage son who’s girlfriend got pregnant. She beamed as she told of God’s faithfulness and how sweet her little grandchild is. Only GOD!
We have had a blast. Be safe going home girls. We hope to see you next year when we try our two Forums back to back! That’s right. Pray for us! ;0) We won’t think about that now. We’ll just bask in the glow of having 500 women in the halls of LifeWay. Forum energizes us for the year to come. We love you so! Any sweet Forum stories to share?
Fired up for some women’s ministry!
