My prayer for the conference? Lord, use me.

One of my high points? Seeing MISTAKEN in the bookstore.
Best surprise? Seeing my agent, Rachel Kent, at the Books & Such gathering.
Heartfelt moments? Too many to count.
God has a way of meeting you at the conference, often at times you don't expect. His Spirit seems to whisper through the rustling of the trees. I love seeing conferees bowing their heads in small group prayers. My heart was moved when a faculty member reminded us, "You're not writing about God. You're not even writing for God. You're writing WITH God. He wants to walk this road with you." Another instructor paused his class for prayer every time someone needed to sneak out for a scheduled appointment. I shared a cozy cabin with three other writers, and it was sheer joy to come home in the evening and laugh together.
Here's a few more photos to show you the fun we had at this year's conference.
