We have this treasure in jars of clay . . . - 2 Corinthians 4:7
Ladies, want to spend a day being pampered? Treated like the special woman you are? Then join us at the Punxsutawney First Church of God on Saturday, Oct. 16 for the Seasons of Life Christian Women's Conference. Speakers for the event, which is an extension of the Southern Christian Women ministry, are Deborah Dunn and Vonda Skelton, both born and bred Southerners. I'll be joining them on the platform to represent us Northern ladies. It's a day when North and South will meet again--this time to celebrate what we have in common: our womanhood and our faith.
Both Deborah, a licensed marriage counselor, and Vonda, a former nurse, are published authors and seasoned speakers. Deborah's books include Stupid about Men: Ten Rules for Getting Romance Right and Trapped in the Magic Mirror: Shattering the Illusions about Romance and Marriage. Vonda's books include Seeing Through the Lies: Unmasking the Myths Women Believe and the Bitsy mystery series for children.
I'll be featuring Deborah and Vonda on the conference blog page, Vonda in August and Deborah in September. But you don't have to wait until then to get to know them. Visit them online at their websites by clicking on their names in the first paragraph above.
Leading the worship songs that day will be John Tibbs, a gifted songwriter who travels around the country leading folks in worship with his energetic anthems and intimate spirit. A graduate of Punxsutawney Area High School, John is currently finishing his studies at Anderson University, as well as serving as a worship leader at Madison Park Church of God in Anderson, Indiana. John's high school senior project was a CD of his own songs, Music for Kampala, which he produced to raise money for an AIDS clinic in Africa. (He raised over $5,600.) I'll be featuring John on the conference blog, but until then you can visit him online at www.johntibbsmusic.com.
The conference's purpose is two-fold: to minister to the women of the Punxsutawney area and to raise funds for the Punxsutawney Christian School. John, by the way, was a student of mine when I taught at the school.

Mark your schedule for Saturday, Oct. 16--when North meets South to celebrate what we have in common: our womanhood and our faith.
