I'm "Free to be Real!"

As promised, here’s my weekend in pictures. The Extraordinary Women’s Conference was AMAZING. The whole theme of the conference was “Free to Be Real”. Every speaker and singer was phenomenal and had something different to bring. It really just challenged us to let go off the shackles that bind us and to let go of every burden that we walked into that building with and just allow ourselves to be free. It was hard not to leave that place changed! Enjoy the pictures!







Chonda Pierce was flat out hilarious. She had me crying, haha!




Michael O'Brien led amazing worship!


Natalie Grant! This is one anointed chick!




My friend Sarah and I. I'm so glad she came. She was really blessed by it!


Kathy Troccoli. She doesn't disappoint ya'll. She's amazing!!!




Candace Cameron Bure spoke (AKA D.J. Tanner from Full House. I loved her testimony and was so blessed by it! And she's sooo stinkin sweet.)




Kathy Troccoli's niece, Gina, and I. We actually became friends on Facebook and were able to meet up for the first time while at the conference. She was there to hear her aunt sing and speak. It was so cool to meet for the first time.


Kathy and I. Have I told you how much I love her?? Haha! :o)


Yep, this pretty much made my day complete! Haha! I still watch reruns of Full House, lol!


Sarah with Candace!


So overall, the conference was just flat out amazing!!!! I'm already ready for next year. I did awhole lot of driving back and forth to and from Tampa, so I was exhausted by the end, but not too exhausted to finish Twilight. I finished it in no time flat. I finished it in less than two days. Oh yeah, I was sucked in BIG time!!!! I sat by the pool and read and this is pretty much what I look like right now....



Except I'm a woman and don't have hairy armpits, haha!!!!! Boy did I get sunburned. Got sooo wrapped up in the book and time got away from me, but it was so worth it though, haha!!!

Happy Monday!

Glad you had a great time! It's nice to just soak in and spend so much time thinking about what God would have you do, isn't it?

Jordan said...

I love Full House! That sounds like such a great time. I'm glad that you finished Twilight. I warned you that it's addicting! But they are so good. It took me almost the entire book to get into Twilight but the next 3 you will want to read in 1 day!! =]

How wonderful! I know you are so refreshed by a weekend like this! It is so great that you take the time out for your Spirit and it's so encouraging to just be around other women hungry for God and unafraid to show where they are broken so that they can be healed.
