Conference Countdown

A very excited Mindy here. I can hardly wait. Tomorrow is the day I've been waiting for since I got home from ACFW conference last year. I'll soon be Denver bound for this year's ACFW conference. So today, I'm spit-shining my pitch, saying it over and over and over and . . . well, you get the picture. Packing and whole list of to-do's still await my attention. But before I get to them, I think it's best I take some time to honor the One Who gave me the gift, the joy, of writing.

Thank you, Jesus.

What a precious opportunity to be able to come together with other Christian writers. Like minded people, who know what it is to lay awake at 3 AM because your characters won't leave you alone. To plot a murder with someone you haven't seen in forever. (Ahem, keep in mind that I write romantic suspense :-) To join together in worship, praising the God for Whom we write.

Father God, I pray that you would bless each and every soul at this year's conference. Go with us, Lord, guiding us along the path you've set before us. And may this conference bring honor and glory to Your name, Amen.
