My daughter took these pictures of Luci Swindoll. The line was so long to meet Luci Swindoll we didn' t have time to wait in her line and then get back to the conference. She got a pretty good picture of Luci as the others waited in line to meet her. Luci was recovering from bronchitis and they said she didn't have much of a voice 4 days before this event. From the Youtube video you can see how spunky she really is when she isn't battling sickness. She still was funny and real! This was the first time I'd every heard her speak. Fun and moving!

This is the story I heard her tell at the conference.

Luci has a new book coming out early next year. It looks good!

Product Description: Simple rules for a successful, intentional life approached in a no-nonsense manner with a solid, scriptural foundation.

Luci Swindoll, a beloved Women of Faith speaker for sixteen years and a distinctive Christian voice in writing and speaking for thirty years, gives readers common-sense rules to live by. These are rules we may know but don't often use-because we don't think about them.

Luci's book places these practical rules in one small, well-organized, fun-to-read compendium that can be referred to again and again.

The 50 simple "secrets" are in five parts:

Beginning with the Basics
Developing Your Style
Achieving Balance
Living a Good Life
Staying Connected
Simple Secrets to a Happy Life is sure to delight readers-from young people needing advice from a friendly voice to older readers who realize they still don't have it all right.

While I was waiting in line to see Lisa D. Harper and finally talked to her she brought out her friend Kelly Minter, to meet my daughter and I. I had told List I worked at a Christian book store and she wanted me to meet Kelly. I only knew of Kelly's work in books and bible studies. It wasn't until I looked her other projects up did I realize that she also sings. Wow!
Love the book trailer to her book The Fitting room and the music she had for the study of Ruth! Check it out!

THE FITTING ROOM: Putting on the Character of Christ
By Kelly Minter
Published by David C. Cook (April 1, 2011)
205 Pages

Product Description: Kelly Minter explores what it means—in real life—to “clothe” ourselves (Col. 3:12) in Christian virtues like forgiveness, joy, patience, compassion, and more.

Colossians 3:12 tells us to “clothe” ourselves in Christian virtues like forgiveness, joy, patience, compassion. But how does that work in real life? Can we really “dress up” in the character of Christ? Kelly Minter says the answer is yes—if we let the Master Designer do the fitting. This relatable book offers insightful Scripture study with real-life stories and simple, down-to-earth explanations of tricky concepts as justification and sanctification—stitching it all together with dry humor and down-to-earth honesty. There are no gimmicks, no guilt trips, just an irresistible invitation for women to enjoy a spiritual makeover—to put on a life that’s personally tailored by the One who knows and loves them best.

Kelly is a multi-talented women with books, and bible studies under her belt she is also an accomplished music artist! The next study Kelly said she is working on is Nehemiah. Can't wait.
