Alice In Wonderland and SHINE

Happy Easter, everyone! Here's a brief update on the weekend before last, the weekend of "Alice In Wonderland" and the SHINE Conference. Above, you see me and my good friend Eunice Bez, along with Christy Guenther (far left), the main speaker, and Tiffany Mayne (far right), the organizer and creator of The SHINE Initiative.

I'm not sure how many girls came, but Friday seemed to be around 500 and Saturday hovered around 400. The girls had a GREAT time! Hannah is in the picture above in the green shirt, center. Lindsey Kane lead worship all day Saturday and it was nice to see so many girls eager to run down front and dance.

Here's a shot of Christy giving one of her messages. Her theme was "Hello, My Name Is...". She talked about identity and who we are in Christ. Christy and her husband pastor River Stone Community Church in San Marcos, TX. They have three adorable kids. Christy was a great speaker and fun to meet! You can find out more about her ministry through her website.

Also that weekend was the first three shows for "Alice In Wonderland"! I was unable to make the show but gave my tickets to Bess. Mary Nell took Sophie and had a good time. Above you can see the mushroom which finally came together. I spray painted the white sheet and Amy Buck stapled it over donated beanbags which rested on a wooden spool painted purple. Very creative teamwork!

Below is Alice's house, which I had lots of fun painting!

And here are those butterflies again, soaring high above the stage! I think they were a huge hit. I liked how the lighting created so many shadows of butterflies on the wall. An unexpected effect!

I'll post again soon with photos from this past Easter weekend. We had a lovely weekend and hope you did, too!
