Are you coming to Innovate08? I am! If you are, I hope to meet you if we haven't met yet. Sheila Beeson and I will be hosting one of the Casual Q&A sessions on Friday afternoon of the conference. Here is a brief description of what that means:
Casual Q&A’s are very specific topics where attendees have the freedom to ask questions and dialogue with Granger staff. They are not as structured as teaching breakouts but designed to be informal Q&A sessions with the questions being determined by the attendees themselves.
Got questions on: boundaries between your private life vs. the church life and how to support your spouse through the challenges of day-to-day ministry? Pastor's Wives: Sheila Beeson, wife of Granger’s Senior Pastor and Michelle Wegner, wife of Granger's Pastor of Life Mission will be hosting this Casual Q&A session.
With that said, if you are a Pastor's wife coming to Innovate, you need to come to this session and meet Sheila Beeson! She's amazing! I have known her and served beside her and Mark for 16 years. I watched her be an amazing Mom to Amber, Aaron, and Angela. I can credit my parents and the Beeson's for the way I parent my own kids today. Not only that, Sheila has been an amazing role model to me as to how to be a "normal" person and a Pastor's wife.
I am thinking of doing some cross-stitching or needlework together while we chat. Or, we can sing old hymns around a piano. WAIT! I AM KIDDING!
We won't be doing those things. Really. I was kidding.
If you are a Pastor's wife (or even if you're not) what would you want to talk about during this Q&A? What are some things you would NOT want to talk about? I'm curious. Let the research begin!
