OH MY STARS!! So where to begin? God is blessing our trip incredibly. Everything is better than we expected. Our flights were smooth. Our airport experiences were easy. Our rental car was upgraded from a Kia Rio to a cute PT Cruiser, with a sun-roof. Picture Brandi and I cruising down I5 with the sunroof open, hair blowing in the wind, and me singing "Ohh baby do you know what that's worth, ohh heaven in a place on Earth. They say in Heaven loves comes first, we'll make heaven a place on Earth. Ohh, Heaven is a place on Earth" at the top of my lungs. Prophetic . . . maybe!! Anyway, we get to our hotel, and it is better than we expected. This seemed to be the theme of this trip. Went to the night service and it was really good, but at 8:30 Kris Vallaton was still talking, but it was 10:30 our time and this was three plane rides, 1 shuttle ride, 1 sky link ride, and one 3 hour car trip later. So, tired and hungry we slipped out and ate and went back to the hotel to catch some zzz's. Next morning, breakfast then registration. Opening session was phenom. God showed me so much just in the first impartation time. Good Stuff!!! So, this is where it gets good. First session was really good. It was "The marriage of speaking and writing." During this session I had the opportunity to share my book concept to the room. A several people had comments of suggestions. All Good. They seemed to really think it was a needed topic. Then Yvonne, the speaker, prayed over me and when the session ended we left through a fire tunnel. Yvonne kept saying,"published, published" over me. Then she told me she wanted to talk to me later. So we ended up going to lunch. Yvonne, me, Brandi and our new friend Keleigh (pronounced Kelly), our new friend from Georgia. This is where I got the "OH MY STARS!" During lunch Yvonne and I connected well I think. I think this because I got blasted by her in the car on the way back. She prophecied over me and crowned me and broke stuff off of me. It was intense. My head was stuck to the window. She gave me some amazing words, I wrote them down and can share later if you want. Fast forward to the critique session. OH MY STARS!! I was a little nervous. When I walked up she said, "Oh, you're Francesca!!" Her first words were, "I read this book and I thought OHH this is awesome, it has got to get out there, and I haven't said that to anyone yet." I know it word for word because I recorded it. Woah!!! Woah!! The session was so amazing. I am so blessed and thankful and a million other adjectives I can't say, which I am sure surprises Erica. I am so jacked up. We have a hour with Bill Johnson, them some more sessions, Brandi has her critique session, then impartation with Kris Vallatton. There are plenty more details, but this is already getting so long. I love and miss all of you. Pray for safe and easy trip home tomorrow.
