I arrived in San Antone just in time to swing by the airport and meet my ministry partner Ginger Moore, VP at Speaking Thru Me Ministries (STMM). What a treat! I felt like I already knew her as we visited for hours before the Living Proof and Siesta Fiesta event started.
“You must be another Leigh Gray!” Those were my welcoming words to the Siesta Fiesta. Not so perfect timing, ha!
It was time I explained. My name was Alene and I’m from Texas not Tennessee. Leigh had an accident days before the event and with agreement from all parties I was to take on her identity and use her tickets all weekend. I was found out upon arrival! (check Leigh’s blog and please pray for her recovery)
As I walked in I was greeted by Shonda with a warm hug and smile! Perfect timing! How cool to have blogging buddies and finally meet them in person. Shonda, love ya girl – can’t wait to work with you at the Living the Life Conference in Corpus.
Participating in the Siesta Fiesta events was a hoot. Meeting girlfriends from all over the US was a huge blessing. The hilarious thing was we knew each other by our blogging names not our real names! Lopsided Halo, Crown Laid Down, Jenny Hope, The Simple Wife. Crack me up!!
As we arrived Saturday morning we had an opportunity to meet Amanda Moore Jones, Beth’s daughter. What a pleasure! Amanda is expecting their second and her husband, Curtis is booked to speak at the STMM conference in the Fall of 2009.
Spending two hours in a special Q&A session with Beth and her girls was definitely perfect timing. There were group pictures, girl talk (hair, make-up, boobs, daily schedules, babies, etc.) and lots of laughs. How I wish you all could have been there!
Seriously, I’m processing each and every amazing moment of the weekend. It was perfect timing!
