Women of Joy

This weekend my friends and I attended the Women of Joy conference. This was the first conference we had attended as a group. We had such a great time worshipping God and fellowshiping together. The conference started Friday night with Travis Cottrell as the worship leader for the weekend. Travis led us in blended worship through out the weekend; One of my favorite song from this weekend was In Christ Alone. Who am I kidding, I can't just pick one song for a favorite, I loved all the music...So, I'll just say that all the music was my favorite part!
The second part of the evening our speaker us Kirk Cameron. Kirk Cameron was one of the main reasons I ended up going to the conference. Kirk had an awesome message...Once everyone stopped taking pictures...LOL!! It was like someone called the paparazzi; Their were flashes going off everywhere. Kirk encougared us to witness to others by loving others instead of letting our fear stand in the way.
Throughout the weekend we heard several wonderful speakers including Lisa Harper, Priscilla Shrier, and Carol Kent. On Saturday night, we arrived at the conference center at 5:00 (well, at least some of us did; some of my good friends had trouble getting the door locked at their cabin...LOL) to get in line for Casting Crowns. The doors didn't open until 6:30. So, anyways we waited and we waited and we waited some more. But, it was so worth it...We got seats in about the 10th row. It was the fist time all weekend we hadn't been in the back...At least all of our waiting paid off!!
