attended Women of Faith last year and had such a great time. It's a marvelous weekend of rejuvenation and spiritual growth that I would recommend to anyone.
Celebrate What Matters event being held at the Time Warner Cable Arena. The lineup of speakers and artists this year looks really great! My favorite singer, Amy Grant will be there, as well as former American Idol contestant Mandisa. I'm also looking forward to hearing from Patsy Clairmont and Chonda Pierce, who will make your sides hurt from laughter and your heart sing from their powerful messages. Ballet Magnificat, America's premier Christian ballet company will also be performing. I've never seen a dance production like this at a Women of Faith event, but I'm sure it's going to be beautiful and inspiring.
If Charlotte is not a good location for you, there are many other event sites around the country. Check out the Women of Faith website for a full listing, but here are a few upcoming dates that may be in your area:

Here's a short video with testimonies from women to attended a recent event. You can hear in their voices how touched they were by their time there:
Here's a bit more information about Women of Faith, right from their website:
Women of Faith events are produced by the world’s largest producer of inspirational events, Live Event Management Inc., a Thomas Nelson company based in Plano, Texas. Through authentic connection with audiences, humor, an atmosphere of encouragement and support, and our line-up of world-class talent including well-known Christian authors and performers, Women of Faith delivers life-changing messages via high-quality programs in cities across North America.
If this sounds like the kind of Friday night and Saturday that you'd like to have, start praying now about attending. For many of us, our desire to go may seem overshadowed by external forces, like taking time off of work or getting childcare for our kids. But I can tell you that if it's the Lord's will for you attend one of these events, He can certainly make it happen. There have been countless stories told over the years by women who overcame remarkable barriers to be there, with the Lord's hand leading the way.
And of course, if you're going to be at the Charlotte event this coming weekend, let me know-- I'd love to meet you in person! I'll also be back here on The Calico Critic, reporting about the event and my experiences there. 2012 has been a rough year in more ways than one for me, and I am eagerly anticipating my time away. I'm sure it's going to be great. Hope to see you there!
