"Unglued" Telecast

 I've had the MOST FUN last two days!  Yesterday morning I got up at 4 a.m. (whew) and left home and flew to Charlotte, NC.  I've never been to NC but I thought it was SOO pretty and nice and I'd love to go back and visit someday!  I met up with Courtney at the airport and we went and met Lysa Terkeurst for lunch.  Lysa was SO kind and welcoming! I just enjoyed my time so much with her and she is just as nice and funny as could be.

We also ate lunch with Renee Swope who works for Proverbs 31 ministries and you may hear her on the radio programs they do and she also speaks.  She has a precious little girl she adopted from Ethiopia who is the same age as Harper and she ate with us too.  Renee has a neat story and I loved getting to spend time with her  as well! Courtney is a blogger who writes about homemaking and home schooling and leads Bible Studies. She was so neat to meet in person!

We had a fun afternoon and prepared for the telecast while enjoying a VERY delicious meal at a Mexican restaurant I loved!!

I was so excited because my sweet friend Faith got to come watch the telecast. She has a friend who works for Proverbs 31 who invited her.  It was so good to see her and her little "twin" bump!!!  Such a precious friend! It was such a highlight for me to get to see her! And so unexpected!

Dr. Tim Clinton who is the President of the American Association of Christian Counselors was on the telecast with us.  He ate dinner with us and just had so many interesting things to share in the way of conflict resolution and marriage dynamics.  He offered a lot of insight!
Lysa is a New York Times Best Selling Author and speaks at events all the time. She is joining Women of Faith next year. She has such a huge heart for the Lord and I was extremely honored to get to hang out with her.  Both she and Renee told me that they had prayed for Harper when she was born and I got so choked up I almost couldn't breathe.  I couldn't even speak to tell either one thank you.  (I hope I never stop crying when someone tells me they prayed for her because I want to never stop being thankful for her little life).  I'm also excited because Lysa is travelling with Compassion in November with my friend Angie Smith and Shaun Groves and some other bloggers! You will have to follow along! (and maybe I will just tuck myself in one of their suitcases).

The telecast was really neat. If you missed it - you can watch it HERE.
