Yes, yes, and yes to LOADS of opportunities to meet and hear incredibly gifted authors and preachers at the North American Christian Convention (NACC), from July 9th to the 12th, right here in Louisville, Kentucky! (www.gotonacc.org) ‘Tis time to get this on your calendar!
The Women’s Ministry portion of the convention has two exceptional offers which include the opportunity to hear Ann Voskamp speak at the Ladies’ Luncheon on Thursday, July 11th, from 12:00-1:15 p.m. Ann is the author of the best-selling book, One Thousand Gifts—A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are. (A must-read for us all.)
I was blessed recently to trek downtown with my sweet friend, Judy Russell, to taste what we’ll be having at the luncheon. You will be delighted in so many ways, not to mention the piece de resistance, the chocolate mousse cake! Chocolate and more chocolate!!! (Hey, I’m not beyond bribing!!!) Add to that the chance to hear Ann speak and you have a win-win scenario.
I also had the pleasure, this past March, to meet Ann at a conference where she and Liz Curtis Higgs were speaking in Minneapolis, MN. (to read more, click on….Magnificent Manifesto in Minneapolis…) She is a profound and sincere speaker. She was written up recently in Christianity Today for being one of the fifty most influential Christian Women in the country!
Believe it or not, our other speaker, Nancy Sleeth, was also one of the top fifty most influential Christian Women in the same article! Nancy’s newest book, Almost Amish–One Woman’s Quest for a Slower, Simpler, More Sustainable Life—is delightful. She spoke at our Book Club last fall and was incredibly encouraging. You’ll get the opportunity to have breakfast with her on Friday, July 12th. It begins at 7:30 a.m.
To add further intrigue to that early morning breakfast (We must have incentive to rise so early, huh?!!!), Nancy’s husband, Dr. Matthew Sleeth, will also speak. He, too, has a new book out (Quite the inspirational pair, aren’t they???), 24/6—A Prescription for a Healthier, Happier Life. The first chapter will hook you while the entire book enlightens and inspires you to cherish and savor the Sabbath.
Matthew and Nancy will be speaking on “A Simple Plan that Simply Works.” You do not want to miss this opportunity! Look at their company, Blessed Earth, and you can see where their hearts are. (www.blessedearth.org )
Judy and I were also blessed to get to taste our menu for the breakfast (Well someone must take the time to make sure you won’t be disappointed!!!) and it, too, will be delicious! The breakfast will get your day off to a great start coupled with fantastic teaching and information from the Sleeths.
Both events, the luncheon and breakfast, are ticketed events. You can purchase tickets via the North American Christian Convention’s website: www.gotonacc.org
Please join me and several others at these highly inspirational events. Incredible workshops will also be offered. Checkout the program line-up on the NACC website. You will be BEYOND blessed.
The convention’s theme this year is VICTORIOUS: When Life Seems Hopeless, Read the End of the Story—The Message of Revelation. Meanwhile, please pray for all of these speakers, all of the details to come together, etc. Pray for the attendees whose lives will be changed because of the Gospel. VICTORIOUS!!!
See YOU in July!!!
‘Til next time!
