Atlanta Day 3

Sunday was our third day in Atlanta. It was the official start of ICRS (International Christian Retail Show).

For me, it started with author boot camp from 8:00-12:30. Jasmine hung out, played DS, watched a movie on the portable DVD player and read not far from where I was at.
Angie Hunt was the keynote speaker for the author bootcamp. She writes womens' fiction and her tagline is "Expect  the Unexpected." Check her out online. 

Later in the afternoon I had a table in the kids' section at Change a Life Festival. Anita Renfroe was there along with the Peter Furler band and some other people. We couldn't really tell what all was going on from the children's area in the back.

My table set up

My toys for the occupations of Bible authors game, with Karen Whiting and her daughter Rebecca White who cowrote "Nature Girl."

Jasmine helping girls make friendship pins. It's a craft from Christian Girl's Guide to the Bible.

Putting the books of the Bible blocks in order.

The opening service took place after that. The Peter Furler band lead worship, and Kyle Idleman spoke. Jasmine and I actually walked over to the CNN food court to get something to eat during that. Things got way behind, and the 7:30 program we went to started at 9:00!
Anita Renfroe hosted the Celebration Showcase.

Amber Nelon Thompson sang.

The JJ Weeks band performed and so did Tasha Cobbs.

Alan Robertson introduced his dad, Phil Robertson.

We left during his message because it was already 10:30 and we were walking back to the hotel and also had to be up early. Aaron Shust sang after we left.

Atlanta at night

The Ferris Wheel changed colors. This is my favorite.
