More Artists Announced for Girls Get Away Cruise!

In addition to Lysa TerKeurst, the following amazing ladies were just confirmed. I'm excited to announce:
Chonda Pierce, Shari Braendal, Angela Thomas, and JJ Heller as being special guests sharing with us on the Girls Get Away Cruise! 

See my previous introduction to Lysa and some links to her website here.

Let me start with Chonda Pierce. She is one funny lady! She is a Christian comedian, and is from Tennessee. She has won numerous awards, has several DVD's, and you can see some clips here on her website. I am excited to see her in person. Looks like we're in for a such a good time! I'm extra excited to exercise my stomach muscles when I see her. I fully believe this will count as my work out for the day.   

I'll share a little about Shari Braendal. She sounds like one to see! She is a fashion coach, Christian speaker, and author. She works hard to teach women and girls of all ages to appreciate their beauty as God sees them!  Check out her latest book called, "Good Girls Don't Have to Dress Bad." I would love to see how she can teach me to dress up my jeans more! Jeans are my favorite, I just usually rock the boots during the winter, then the sandals (flip flops) any time I can get away with it! Isn't it funny how before we had kids, we'd spend every last cent on our wardrobe, now I'm just happy to find something clean to wear..even if it means sweatshirt and jeans! I run off to the store, or take kids to and from,  and am completely happy.

Angela Thomas will be another one speaking. She is currently working with Matthew West on a new book project.. She has written several books including her newest, "do you know who i am?" Questions women ask that are real! I will definitely be reading this one! Another thing that excited me about finding her, was her teen magazine called, Wild About You. As the mother of a teen girl, with another one not far behind her, we need all the resources we can get, don't we?

Finally, we have JJ Heller. JJ's album "When I'm With You," and current single "What Love Really Means" reached new levels this week on multiple Billboard Magazine charts. "What Love Really Means" reached #14 after 22 weeks on the Christian Songs Chart.  I love this song! If you haven't heard it, look it up! Or grab her CD. 

Her story really hit me when she told about how she started really being serious about her singing. We have a similar situation where our talented one (in the singing department) sometimes tries her hardest to be amazing at everything, but where she is really amazing, is her singing abilities. When I heard JJ's story, I heard it on KLove radio. I stopped short, turned it up and listened to every word. I just wanted to hug her as it was just what I needed to share with my daughter. God has blessed some people with an amazing gift, and I'm so happy that JJ has a great story of encouragement to tell! What is her story? Find out, here!

Do you have a story about any of these artists that you could share? I'd love to hear what you have to say about your experience listening to songs, or attending a conference where one of them spoke. Have any of them spoke to your hearts in any way? Do tell!
