Women of Faith 2010

This year, I went to Women of Faith with a close friend of mine (Amber).  We went to the opening show on Friday morning and stayed through Saturday evening. We even got 11th row seats! The weekend was filled with many popular guests including Steven Curtis Chapman, Lisa Welchel, Patsy Clairmont, Andy Andrews, Anita Renfroe, Mandisa, Sandi Patty and many more.  It was an awesome time!  I left feeling refreshed & closer to God, having a renewed spirit. I recommend Women of Faith to ALL women!

I even got to meet Patsy Clairmont! She only signed 30 autographs & I was one of them. :)  There were over 13,000 women in attendance.

Anita Renfroe singing Sweet ol' Iced Tea! So funny.

Steven Curtis Chapman lost his small daughter almost 2 years ago, in a tragic accident. He wrote this song to all of his daughters before she died. He sang it at women of faith. Let me just tell you, its tear jerking. He talked about how she would always come up to him in her little cinderella costume and ask him to dance with her. It totally reminded me of abigail.

Its not letting me embed it on my blog.  You can go to the link on you tube to watch it.

Mandisa perfomed this song at the conference. It was my favorite performance & it gave me chills watching her sing this in a room full of thousands of women. It was an emotional song.

Here are the lyrics...

Mandisa “He Is With You”

There’s a time to live
And a time to die
There’s a time to laugh
And a time to cry

There’s a time for war
And a time for peace
There’s a hand to hold
In the worst of these

He is with you when your faith is dead
And you can’t even get out of bed
Or your husband doesn’t kiss you anymore

He is with you when your baby’s gone
And your house is still,
And your heart’s a stone
Cryin’ God, what’d You do that for
He is with you

There’s a time for yes
And a time for no
There’s a time to be angry
And a time to let it go
There is a time to run
And a time to face it
There is love to see you
Through all of this

He is with you in the conference room
When the world is coming down on you
And your wife and kids don’t know you anymore

He is with you in the ICU
When the doctors don’t know what to do
And it scares you to the core
He is with you

We may weep for a time
But joy will come in the morning
The morning light

He is with you when your kids are grown
When there’s too much space
And you feel alone
And you’re worried if you
got it right or wrong
Yes He is with you
when you’ve given up on ever finding your true love
Someone who feels like home

He is with you
When nothing else is left
And you take your final breath
He is with you
