Sunday Snapshot: Women of Faith

I had the awesome opportunity to attend a Women of Faith event in Philly on Friday night and Saturday.  I had attended one other time in 2001.  My mom and aunt were supposed to go with me, but due to the flooding in the Susquhanna River they couldn't make the three hour journey south.  One of my fellow teachers was able to come in my mom's place and D. (who traveled with us to China) also came.

If you have never attended, you are missing out.  It is such an awesome experience to sit with over 10,000 other women all praising God.  The music and speakers were so amazing.  I got to hear Sheila Walsh (love her), Lucy Swindoll, Lisa Harper, Nicole Johnson, and Angie Smith.  The musical guests were Mary, Mary and Natalie Grant.  On Friday night we were treated to a performance by Tim Hawkins.   I haven't laughed that hard in a long time.  Here is one song that he performed.
I wanted to attend this Women of Faith when I heard that Angie Smith was going to be there.  I have been following her blog since shortly after we lost our Samuel.   Her story is truly amazing and you can find it at her blog.  I was so excited to be the last one allowed in the line at the meet & greet following the event.
Here are some pics of the hotel room were we stayed:
