Girls of Grace!

We love KTIS- our local christian rock radio station!

Year after year I would hear about the 
"Girls of Grace" event.
And I wondered what exactly was this event all about?

This year we decided to go to it!

Sarah, Mia and I got up early on a Saturday morning, got a coffee treat and stood in line for this event!
We already had our tickets but the seating within the different areas is first come first serve.

We had no idea what to expect but we were looking forward to it!
We only knew it was for Mom's and their daughters!

They had some great performers and speakers we were excited to see and hear!

We purchased good seats and got there nice and early so we were all set!
We watched everyone else file in!

These two were as happy as can be to be here! 

Both of their favorite artists were preforming so they were beyond excited!
I videoed some of this on my phone and they are still watching it and loving it!

Jamie Grace was awesome- that's Mia's favorite!
We had good seats and could see the stage well but the girls still crowded up toward the front of the stage.

Once they figured it all out... the wiggled their way right up to the front row!

 It was delightful to see how excited Mia and Sarah were about the whole event!

There was sponsoring opportunities at the event and Sarah picked an 11 yr old girl from Brazil!
 She is very excited to write to her and share her faith with her and help support her!
We may have more of the children do this next time we go to this event IF they are ready!

This is an event to empower our daughters.
To encourage them to make good choices as they mature.
And to let them know God's unconditional and infinite love for them no matter what!

Amanda Noelle was one of the many singers!
Along with "Point of Grace".
They were the group that initially got this going!

We purchased some wonderful faith filled tees for the girls to wear!
In case you don't know we love wearing our faith!

But the highlight of the show was seeing ...

Brit Nicole perform!
(here she is, about 20 weeks pregnant!)
Love it- you go girl!

The girls LOVE her!

And teens from all over the auditorium flocked to the front!

Including my two gals!

And I may have even seen a slightly impulsive daughter begin to hop up on the stage but then decide not to and get right back down again... whew!
(Thank you Jesus!)
That would not have been good since they had just told us that was an absolute NO and anyone doing that would be escorted out...
I could have been wrong... it may have been someone else's slightly impulsive daughter
; - )

It was a fabulous time together!
Praising God, watching some awesome performers, listening to good speakers!
And spending time with my two "early teen" treasures!

Next year we will evaluate who else is ready to go!

As we were walking out we met a bloggy friend!
Hi Kari!
Not sure if I am spelling your name right?
She has a handful of adopted kiddos too!
I love the instant connection us adopting Momma's have!

If this is coming to your city
check it out!
I think MPLS may have been the last stop for the 2014 tour.
But their's always 2015!

Fun! I've never heard of that event. "Point of Grace" has one of my favorite CD's at Christmas time- it's terrific!
