What a weekend!

I had the opportunity to attend the sold out Deeper Still Conference in Atlanta, Georgia this weekend. It was AWESOME!!! The Holy Spirit was definitely present. Check out the Deeper Still Blog. You can scroll down to the bottom to the entry Friday night in photos...the arena was packed! Can you imagine what 19,000 ladies praise The Lord does to satan...LOL I get chills just thinking about it.
The ladies who spoke were wonderful! Priscilla Shirer was hilarious. She is a down to earth mom (expecting her third) with a pasiion for Christ. And I have always wanted to hear and see Beth Moore speak. And I am looking forward to doing her newest Bible study in Esther when it is released. Now I have to admit, the other speaker, Kay Arthur, I didn't know a lot about. I knew she was suppose to be a powerful speaker, but I had no idea just how powerful she is! WOWSERS! That lady has a powerful conviction for the Lord. She was amazing. God definitely has brought these women together for a reason and I can't wait to see His work done through them. I know they lit a fire under me to get more excited and step out of my comfort zone and to stop sitting around waiting for someone else to spread The Word of God!!!
Travis and the praise was amazing and truly project the love they feel for Christ. Our special musical guest was Mandisa. Boy she can sing! If you don't know who Mandisa is, she was a finalist on the 5th season of American Idol. She was such a blessing to hear and I was moved by her love for Christ.

If you ever get to go to a conference with these three ladies (as a group or individually) you should! You will be blessed and your life will be changed!

Hi Sandy! Thanks for pointing the way to your blog on Creative Scrappers. How wonderful you were able to attend this conference! I would love to hear Mandisa in-person sometime! I was always impressed with the way her light shined on A.I., and her CD is fantastic! And, I'm excited to learn Beth Moore has a book on Esther coming out soon! I will look for that one!
God bless you, and thanks for sharing!
