Some WP Hints and the LPL Tucson Recap

A few bits of randomness this morning:

-When you leave a comment, you only need to fill in the web site field if you have a blog or personal web site that you’d like people to be able to visit when they click on your name. If you don’t have one, you can just leave it blank.

-Feel free to use whatever screen name you were previously using in the name field.

-Our old avatars (pictures) aren’t showing up here because WordPress does not recognize our Blogger/Google accounts. Several siestas have recommended going to to get a free universally recognized avatar to use. I think we all miss seeing the beautiful faces next to the comments!

-Did you know that you can respond directly to another siesta’s comment by clicking “reply” underneath her comment? (Otherwise, you’ll just scroll down to the bottom of the page and look for the comment box.)

-Unfortunately, we lost the comments that were left on the blog over the weekend. I’m so sorry about that. Please feel free to type your comment again if you would like to.

-Did you know that Rich, our wonderful Living Proof Live photographer, and his wife just had their first baby? She was born a few days before the Toronto conference. (That’s why we didn’t have a recap video for that event.) Rich has promised to send me some pictures of Baby Polly to share on the blog. She is beautiful! In the meantime, please enjoy the Living Proof Live Tucson recap video. Thanks, Rich!

    Blessed… refreshed… and touched deeply with the truth that God comes to us personally and knows what we need ~ Worship of our LORD and Savior corporately and individually was amazing ~ I am so glad that I was able to come to the Tucson conference.
    Thanks for posting the video!
    In Christ,

    Ok, gonna see if this gravatar thing works. Loved the video! I say that every time I watch one. It takes you right there and for a moment you re-live whatever conference you were at. Rich does such an amazing job! And congrats on the baby girl! Add another siesta to the roll!

    I was at the conference in Tucson this last weekend and i was so blessed by Beth and her teaching. She read an affirmation at the end of saturdays session that we had to repeat to a friend-that was a very powerful moment for me and my girlfriend. Do you think you can post it on here so i can get a copy of it?

    The reply thing is very cool. It will be so much easier to see a reply when it is right under the original comment. Someday someone may actually reply to me and I will be so excited!!

    Is there anything more beautiful than a woman’s hand lifted high in the air? Always gets me – like a kneeling heart is a lifted hand. So wonderful to see women from other states – loving the LORD. Thanks Rich and Congrats!

    What a blessing LPL in Tucson was to so many women in our church. The comment I hear again and again is that they are still “chewing” on everything they heard. Praise God, and ME TOO! I have plowed into 1 Corinthians 15. The treasure! Beth, what we all love about you most I think is your deep, deep love for Christ and for the Word of God. It is infectious and inspired. You remind of us of how captivating and beautiful the Bible is and help to spur us on to not only fall in love with it, but fall deeper in love with it’s Author. Thank you for your faithfulness. There is a hum in our body of women. It’s fun to witness! And thanks too to Keith, and Amanda and Melissa and their hubbies for supporting you in this work. Their faithfulness is such an example. And the praise team and their families too, what a sacrifice of love and time. The Lord is being glorified. Just look at all of those raised hands in Rich’s super video! Woo hoo!

    Just a bit of randomness…
    My Wednesday afternoon Ladies Bible Study is doing the Daniel study. Such cool stuff!! Anyway, I was just wondering if Keith ever saw the kingdom calendar on your hardwood floor??? Tooooo funny!!
    Thanks for all your hard work preparing these studies. I certainly have my hands full with Daniel and SLI but it is so worth it.
    Blessings to you and your family

    had dinner with some friends one night and one of them said with as straight a face as i’ve ever seen… “yeah…there’s this girl at my work that looks like an avatar.” so every time i see that word, i think of that story. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yay – I finally found your new blog site. I kept clicking on my old bookmark and it brought up a 404 error. Somehow I clicked around on that site enough to get to the new home page and find you.

    Bobbie says:

    Just wanted to check and see if my gravtar worked! I’m going to be an expert on the computer by the time I learn how to use all this new stuff! We just got new phones this afternoon and I’m struggling with learning how to download pictures from our computer to the phone!! I bet my 11 yr. old granddaughter could do it in a few seconds!!

    Just wanted to say how blessed I was to see the video recap of the conference in Tucson. I struggled with going and glad I went. I was blessed beyond belief and the ladies I went with really blessed me too. It’s awesome to be with 3500 other women praising and worshiping and hearing the word of God. God Bless you Beth and all the other people that make this ministry happen.

    Watching the Tucson recap just brought me back to what an amazing experience this past weekend was for me! Thank you for coming and blessing Arizona! We were thirsty for some Holy Water, and you all brought it!

    Everything you ladies and gentlemen do at LPM makes a difference in our lives. Thank you for touching mine!

    Barbara says:

    I’m just checking to see how this is working. I’m up in the wee small hours thanking the Lord that He is always there to help me through the new “adventures” in my life. He is just so loving ~ no matter how much I’m hyperventilating; He just grabs me up and makes me feel loved.

    Deborah Hipp says:

    Thank you so much for the recap!!! I wept tears of joy and awe…O, to be able to see the expression on my Lord’s face as He looks down in the midst of our worship…as a group or individually, I know He must be delighted!

    What an encouragement to know I am not alone in love with my Savior, but there are others like me– thirsting and hungering to know truth and seeing God satisfy our desire through opportunities such as this!

    Heaven’s sounding sweeter all the time!!!

    wanted my see if my name would appear on the comment section

    Paula says:

    I don’t know how it happens. I am flying high in my Jesus. I am confident in the Lord. Then a client fires me. I know I haven’t done anything wrong. I don’t deserve to be fired. It’s just one of those things. But my insecurities rear their ugly heads. My confidence sinks. I am trying to read, pray, confess. Suddenly, my spirit remembers who I am in Christ. I don’t need anyone’s approval. I have Jesus and that’s all I need. Jesus knew this client would fire me before the client ever hired me. He has my back. So long, Insecurities.

    Love the new blog site and Miss. Beth I’m also loving the cow print boots! I live in the beautiful, yet rainy Northwest and rainboots are considered a fashion accessory. Bless you all in the transition.
