Drum Rolllllllll Please........
Can you believe that we are already into 2011? I have felt like I was in a whirlwind since the year started. I am almost finished with Community College and well on my way to my Bachelor's Degree!!! I think I can, I think I can.....
Sorry to be gone so long, but every week proved to be a challenge to be still. 2010 went out with a bang and 2011 started shot!!! But God is good, able and a sustainer. I feel like I am leveling out now.
With all of that being said, the most exhilarating and also breathtaking is the 2011 Mother's Day Banquet. This is truly my baby and I am pushing, pushing, pushing. I thank God for the FaithWithHeels family, who are the mid-wives, nurtures and even wind beneath my wings. When I feel like it is enough, their love, support, joy, hope and especially FAITH!!!! keep me going. Their prayers and calls of encouragement are vital to the success to FaithWithHeels. This beautiful women, love God and His people and never cease to amaze me. Heels off! to you ladies.
The 2011 Mother’s Day Banquet is well on its way. We are so pleased to announce that we have the pleasure of honoring some powerful women!
This year’s banquet will prove to be our very best yet. Guess What???!!!!!! We have booked COBO Hall. I still can't believe it, COBO HALL, y'all and we are celebrating on the water. We have the gorgeous Portside Ball room all to our selves. I am most excited to see all of you again this year. Mother's Day is a great time to celebrate the women in your life.
