Our family is preparing for our cross-country road trip to Nashville. Destination? The MOPS International Convention at the Grand Ole’ Opry! I can’t wait. We were in Nashville last fall and loved it. Did I say loved it? I’m sorry. I meant to say, WE LOVED IT!
National author and speaker, Kathi Lipp, has taken me and adorable new-mommy author, Erin MacPherson under her wing (we all share the same literary agent, Rachelle Gardner) and is letting us share her book table. Kathi is more than kind. If you haven’t read any of her books, maybe it’s time you did. She loves Jesus and shares lots of been there-done that wisdom. Plus, her sense of humor is like homemade chocolate icing on the cake.
Apparently, there will be over 4,000 moms in attendance. It’s going to be spectacular. The lineup of speakers is incredible. Click here to see the list.The musicians that will be there? Sara Groves. Travis Coltrell. Steven Curtis Chapman. Mandisa. Lots of Christian authors too. I’m especially excited about Jon Acuff, the author of Stuff Christians Like. Hilarous.
Did I mention that Kathi is the main speaker alongside Max Lucado?
I know, right?
I told Paul, “I might get to meet Max Lucado!?”
Paul said, “Max Lucado might get to meet Joanne Kraft.”
I love that guy.
