Women of Faith LOVED Tour

Thank you to Ruth Ayres for providing this space to share our celebrations. Please join us and share your own!

Saturdays are often for errands or cleaning or laundry. It's rare that a Saturday is reserved for friends, but that's what yesterday was. Months ago, my friend Jessica, invited me to Women in Faith. I'd never been and it sounded interesting, so I agreed.

Saturday morning came quickly. I picked her up and off we went to begin our adventure. Since we work together, most of our time is spent at school and talking about teaching so this time was precious.

As we arrived at the conference and walked into the arena, the first woman who greeted us handed us a card and said, "Good Morning, Beautiful!" I'd like to officially declare that the very best way to begin the day. I smiled back at the lovely woman who complimented me.
Inside the arena we listened to strong and funny women sharing their stories...We heard stories from...Patsy Clairmont

We listened to soulful music by Building 429. Powerful days like this change me.

I celebrate bravery, transparency, and authenticity. I celebrate shameless and honest storytelling. I celebrate the opportunity to hear the powerful words of these women. I celebrate the time with my friend, Jessica.

Thinking about my one little word for this year, SELAH. Glennon Doyle Melton said of selah, "
Selah means holy pause. The Selah is the space between what happens to us and how we respond to what happens to us." After this experience, I need a SELAH to process the words and experiences from this day. Exactly how will this experience change me?


  1. It sounds like a day you didn't want to end, right? And now taking time for Selah helps bring it back to stay. What a great friend you have to invite you to join her, Michelle. I'm glad you had such a lovely time.

  2. What an uplifting event! Thanks for sharing.

  3. I see you had a wonderful time, Michelle and your word is serving you well.
