Not the best preacher in the familiy

Well, this weekend solidified the fact that I am not the best preacher in the family. Some of you know what I'm talking about. A few of us men have the degrees, M-DIV's, and experience, but our wives are the theologians and pastors.
Kayci was the keynote speaker at the West Texas Girl's Conference. Over 600 teenage girls came from Abilene, Lubbock, San Angelo, DFW, Odessa, Midland, and even Memphis. For one weekend, I was the preacher's husband. Our roles were reversed as she spoke, and I sat as her biggest fan. She spoke straight to their hearts. There is absolutely no doubt that Kayci is extremely gifted, and she will have plenty of opportunities in the future to use her gifts.
This was her 3rd straight year to keynote this conference. (Do you think I'm a proud husband?)
For those of you that prayed for her, thank you!!!

I always miss not being at my church on Sunday's, but there was no other place that I would have rather been this weekend than right here in Abilene.

I have been tellilng people that I am considering becoming Assemblies of God so that your mother can preach. I have no doubt she could pull down some big bucks. We could be like Joel Olsteen and his wife.

I am so proud of Kayci!

One of the great joys of living in this decade is seeing (and hearing) women using their talents to praise the Lord. I have often wondered how many more people would have been reached in the previous century if women had been allowed to fully serve God.

Kayci told me about this at the Zoe Conference. I'm glad it went well!
