When I first heard that I could get FREE books in exchange for writing an honest review, I could hardly believe it…but it was true, and I’ve definitely taken advantage of that. I love getting to choose the books I want to review, anticipating their arrival in the mail, reading them, and then posting a review. Some of my favorite books come from Thomas Nelson and I’ve been so thankful that I just keep getting them again and again.
So, when I received an email from Thomas Nelson’s program, BookSneeze, asking if I wanted to be a blogger at a Women of Faith event in my area, I thought, “sure!” I have to admit that I have always been hesitant of the big Christian conferences. I don’t know what about it was off-putting, but I am going to conquer my fear of cheesiness and of crying ladies and all that I have pictured that goes on at these Women of Faith conferences. More than simply “conquering my fear”, I am actually getting excited about going!
The theme of the conference is “Over the Top” and I’m excited to hear the speakers (Patsy Clairmont especially; I hear she’s hilarious) and to hear Mandisa too (I have a secret love for her fueled by my secret love for K-LOVE). Mostly, I’m excited to journey there with my best buddy, and to be encouraged and challenged.
I know the conference isn’t until the end of October, but thanks, Thomas Nelson/BookSneeze and Women of Faith for offering this opportunity! I’m thankful to get to blog about my time there too! 🙂
