I had an exciting time at the Women in Christian Media Conference in Nashville Feb. 5 & 6. It was held at the beautiful Opryland Hotel. My wonderful roommates were good friends Donna Skell, Director of Programs for Roaring Lambs Ministry and Karol Ladd, speaker and author of more than 20 books. WCM precedes the NRB (National Religious Broadcasters) Annual Conference. Many well known ministries were represented at both events.
This WCM event was blessed with guest speakers Kay Authur, Thelma Wells and Anne Graham Lotz. Anne, who was named the “2009 Recipient of Excellence in Communications Award,” gave a powerful message at our Banquet. It was a joy to be in a room full of dynamic godly women who serve God beautifully as authors, speakers and in many areas of media ministry.
I was especially blessed to spend time with Anne Graham Lotz (SEE PHOTO.) Donna and I had the opportunity to greet Anne, her daughter Rachel Ruth, and Anne’s travel companion Carol at the airport and we were also asked to pray for Anne in a private setting (PHOTO ABOVE) before she entered onto the platform to speak. What an honor. What a stunningly beautiful woman Anne is . . inside and out. Her incredible message was presented with such passion! Anne is a gifted speaker . . . a woman after God’s own heart.
One of the things that inspired me the most at this Conference was to be in an intimate setting with Kay Arthur, Thelma Wells (PHOTO ABOVE), June Hunt, Vonette Bright, Anne Graham Lotz, actress Jennifer O’Neil and others - who still, in this season of their lives, are serving God with a passion and purpose!
