7 Quick Takes Friday – Conference Highlights Part II

Please join me and other Catholic bloggers at Camp Patton for 7 Quick Takes Friday (Jen is busy filming a television show).

Today I’d like to share more highlights from the Conference in Dallas, Texas. (Here is Part 1 of the Conference Highlights).

1. Teresa Tomeo
I had a great chat with Teresa Tomeo during the book signing for her new book, Wrapped Up: God’s Ten Gifts for Women.

2. Pat Gohn
Pat Gohn is one of my favorite podcasters! She has a beautiful speaking voice and an enthusiastic sense of humor! This photo was taken at the CWG Booth.

3. Amazing Authors Part 1
Authors T. M. Wallace, Ann Frailey and AnnMarie Creedon were some of the many volunteers helping out at the CWG Booth.

4. With Author Gerard Webster (and his wife, Anne)
Someone I always look forward to seeing at the annual conference is Gerard “Jerry” Webster, award-winning author. He always puts a smile on my face and is just a fun person to be around.

5. Amazing Authors Part 2!
We were blessed to have many volunteers helping out at the booth, as well as wonderful Catholic writers. Ann Lewis (award-winning author and president of the CWG, in the middle of the group) organized the conference. It was my first time meeting Rebecca Frech, blogger and mother of seven (far left). Author Karen Kelly Boyce is always a delight and booth volunteers Barbara Patterson (far right) and Kelly McClintock (in front) helped make the booth a success. It was also great meeting author Erin McCole-Cupp and writer Donna Doherty (in second photo below – along with AnnMarie Creedon).

6. Hotel was Cool!
The Arlington Sheraton was definitely a beautiful place to stay, very state-of-the-art and posh.

7. Dallas
Unfortunately, I didn’t get to do any sightseeing in Dallas (like the Texas School Book Depository…) but I did get to see Dallas from the sky and spent a lot of time at the DFW Airport!

For more quick takes, visit Camp Patton!
