Women of Faith: Columbus, Ohio

I was very blessed to have the opportunity to work with Women of Faith for a review and giveaway for Peanut Butter and Pickle Reviews. In addition to allowing me to give away 6 tickets to the Columbus, Ohio event...they also gave me 4 tickets.

So on Friday morning my awesome co-worker, my mom, my aunt and I piled into her car to go to Women of Faith in Columbus, Ohio

Both Friday and Saturday were beautiful with temperatures in the 80's!
We got to hear awesome music by the Women of Faith worship team.



and hear great speakers like Patsy Clairmont

Lisa Welchel a.k.a. Blaire from The Facts of Life
and Marilyn Meberg
We ate great food too. Here we are waiting for our Friday night dinner reservations at Gordon Biersch.
On Saturday we headed to the North Market for lunch. I had Musaka from a Greek Restaurant. We also got to sample some yummy ice cream from Jenni's Ice Cream. We tried some pretty crazy sounding flavors...such as Queen City Cayennne, and Thai Chili. They were actually very good!
We were also very privileged to hear such great artists as
Mandisa!!!
She was simply incredible!
and.....none other than Steven Curtis Chapman! Talk about heart wrenching and uplifting all at the same time.

We also took time to take a picture of ourselves with our "Praying for Stellan" sign. If you're not familiar with this story. Please visit My Charming Kids and look at the photographs HERE. The story will touch your heart and maybe you'll start praying for Stellan too :)
We had such a wonderul uplifting and fun filled weekend. Despite all my fun....I was glad to get home to my hubby and sweet babies.....who I couldn't quit kissing,hugging, and thanking the Lord for!
