Post Conference Check-In
Sorry about being awol Thursday and Friday. I was so very busy at the conference I didn't even get online until Sunday night. Even after the conference ended Sunday at 11:00, I was driven away for a full afternoon of a book signing in a store. Then it was back to meet two people for dinner. Finally after that I had a short time to write this post before falling into bed.
The conference was wonderful. Keynote speaker Angie Hunt did a great job, as I knew she would. The Mall of America booksigning went well, with lots of people milling around. I'll tell you my favorite story from that signing in a future post. I also have a comical story to tell from my book signing on Sunday afternoon.
I took a few pictures at the conference, but not nearly as many as I'd planned. Carried my camera with me in my fancy little purse to the banquet Saturday with the best of intentions. Did I get one picture of anyone in all their finery? Noooo. If anyone has pictures out there, please email them. Or if they're posted, send me the links.
As has been the case each year, the highlights of the conference for me happened very quietly in the prayer room. I saw God meet emotional/spiritual/physical needs in a powerful and very merciful way.
I'm traveling home today. Hope to blog in more detail tomorrow. If you've read an interesting blog post about the conference elsewhere, put the link in the comments for us all to check out.
