The bravest women I know


*Guest post by Sara Horn, LifeWay Women author Here's a confession. (How's that for a start for my first time guest-posting here?!) I never wanted to "do" women's ministry. That sort of ministry, I thought early on, was full of drama and cattiness and gossip that I just did not want any part of. So I avoided women's Bible study sign-ups and passed on invitations to evening get-togethers. It just … [Read more...]

Heart for worship

I'm about to get some sleep after a great night at Living Proof Live Charlotte (9,400 strong), but I just had to share this video. I just saw it when I was getting tonight's pictures and videos off of my camera and onto my computer - and it so perfectly sums up the heart for worship that's shared by Travis and his praise team. This is sweet Julie. And what I love - what I LOVE - is that it … [Read more...]

Hey, Charlotte!


We're so happy to be here! I love that the Charlotte airport has a beautiful statue outside. So Southern. Anyway, we're about to get to work on some set-up stuff, but don't forget to enter the giveaway if you're going to be at this weekend's Living Proof Live. Can't wait to see y'all there! … [Read more...]

Not our typical Friday


Last Thursday Melanie and I went to Nashville so that we could sit in on a pre-event planning meeting for .MOM (which, by the way, will be here before you know it). We'll be emceeing the .MOM festivities (just think of us as your personal court jesters), and fortunately the LifeWay people are far more organized than we are and actually have a plan and a schedule and lots of ideas. Mel and I were … [Read more...]

The after


One part of Living Proof Live that people might not think about is how much activity goes on once the event is over. This past Saturday was no exception. Once all the ladies (and a few men!) were out of the building, the crew moved in full-force and started to break down the stage and the equipment. It's sort of surreal to watch, really. For two days that arena felt like a home away from home - a … [Read more...]

Consider yourself warned, LPL Lincoln


Tonight I was walking down to the bookstore at the arena when I saw this sign. You'll be happy to know that the ladies steered clear of any sort of mosh pit activity at tonight's Living Proof Live. But tomorrow? If there's body surfing? Well, you'll be the first to know. And I'll most certainly post pictures. :-) … [Read more...]

LPL Lincoln set-up


When Melanie and I first started blogging from different women's events, we mainly just sat in our seats and tried to take really good notes and then re-capped the weekend's lesson once we got home. Once we figured out that part of things, we started helping out a little bit behind-the-scenes. It really does take a lot of time to put signs on seats, get programs distributed, make sure that the … [Read more...]

Hello from Lincoln, Nebraska!


This weekend I'm in Lincoln, Nebraska for Living Proof Live. It's my first-ever visit to this part of the country (I think I may have already mentioned that about fourteen times), and I have been totally charmed by the friendliness of the people and the charm of the downtown area. Everything here looks very neat and clean - they're missing that nice sheen of humidity that tends to make the scenery … [Read more...]
