The Princess Guide: I've Got Talent!

I couldn't get very far into my 38 days of Pinktober without wearing my Talent shirt.  Yes, I know it's gray.  But today has been anything but gray around here!

It's the most beautiful Fall day. Not too hot at all.  Sunshine on my shoulders and all that jazz.  I've spent the day decorating for Fall and watching two very able guys install my new dishwasher.  It's so quiet you can't even tell it's on!!  REALLY GREAT DAY!!!

So yes, I know this shirt is mainly gray -- but there isn't a more "PINK" shirt in my closet.  This shirt represents one of the most incredible experiences in my life.  An experience that continues to shape me.  An experience that was 100% God-breathed.  An experience like none-other.

In November 2007, four short months after we lost my Mom, just a week after I walked 60 miles in three days in her memory, I flew to LA for a fairy-tale experience.  You can read more about it here:

You'll want to start with the post on October 31 and read forwards through the experience.  It was incredible.

You can see the commercial here: (I'm the Crazy Beautiful Girl)

THE Amy Stoker originated the "Crazy" quote --  she's a star!

I know some of the four of you are walking the 3-Day for the first time this year.  And I know you're wondering what on earth you've gotten yourselves into.  I don't know that you have a nation-wide advertising campaign in your future.  But I do know that you have an amazing experience ahead of you.

The 3-Day is every bit what it's cracked up to be.  It's 60 miles of ministry.  A 60-mile buffet.  Sixty miles of smiles and laughter and love and hugs and blisters and graham cracker sandwiches and feather boas and porta-potties and pink and sisters and friends and so much more.

It's the most powerful experience ever.
