It was such fun to read Cara's post about the ACFW conference. Our blog was so well represented among the finalists for the big ACFW awards this year--and it was sooo exciting to see Cara take a first place!
I came away from the conference feeling incredibly blessed to be amongst so many wonderful writers in that atmosphere of faith and enthusiasm. And the workshops were amazing--I couldn't write notes fast enough, even though I knew I'd also be buying the conference recordings. There is always so much more to learn in this business! The photo, by the way, is of new Steeple Hill Historical author Pam Nissen and me. This is the first time I've tried adding a photo, and I hope it works!
I loved the worship and devotion times. Such beautiful praise music--it really touched my heart. I'd love to find a list of all the beautiful songs we sang, so I could try to find recordings of them, as they weren't songs used in my home church. Then--if my kids can finally manage to teach me how to use an iPod, I could listen to the music, the recordings of all the wonderful workshops, and Angela Hunt's wonderful keynote talks, during my walks with our dogs. Angela is one amazing lady, by the way. After the conference, I went to Barnes and Noble, and bought her latest novels.
But ahhh...technology. The world of iPods and iPod Touch and Zune still have me a bit baffled. So many features, and such a range of memory amounts, from one gig to 60. If anyone has suggestions on what to buy, I'd love to hear them!
Wishing you all blessings,
