Normally I don't get too terrified of speaking at women's retreats but honestly, 700 people! And it was in a big church auditorium shaped like a 3/4 circle, with stair-stepped pews at the sides rising to the balcony--the kind of place the Knox Brothers sing at. But there I was, and there was no Arnold over there at the piano to my left. Which is actually good, because that would have meant I had to sing.
The INSPIRE committee stayed a lot longer than I did, cleaning and dismantling, and I'm guessing they were a lot more exhausted than I was.
May they be greatly blessed.
