As promised last week, I saved the pictures from the last day of conference to post this week on my Tuesday Travels page. So, here are my friends from the 2016 ACFW conference photos. On Saturday morning, I was so busy with classes, an appointment, and visiting with friends that I only took this one photo with Sharlene MacLaren and Janice Thompson, two of the people I met early on in ACFW and enjoyed catching up with.
Then, that evening everyone was dressed up in their finest for our Gala and awards dinner. We started with a prayer and a beautiful song by the choir. Sorry I wouldn’t fit everyone in one shot.
After the banquet everyone took pictures of old and new friends, so here are a few of mine. First is Christy Miller, who is one of my favorite brainstormers. We met up during conference to plan another book, and Gregg and Hallee Bridgeman–great friends who also published one of my books under their Olivia Kimbrell press. Also, Carrie Turnasky another long-time member who has always been very gracious and encouraging to me and many others. Friendships are one of the best parts of ACFW. And since we are all Christians, those friendships will last for eternity!
