The Ad That Spoke to Me

I was reading today’s GO section of the Rockford Register Star when an ad stopped me in my tracks.

It so expressed the way I felt last December when I was praying for God to change Brett (or to take me out of this world!). It was an ad for a Women’s Conference, and I have to say that it was a nice change from the happy, bubbly ads that churches usually produce for a conference.

This ad spoke to the many ways women today may face desperation and need guidance from someone who has been there…and survived.

This kind of conference speaks to me. This kind of marketing needs to be done. Life isn’t always sunshine and rainbows, and I love the thought of attending a conference that deals with the “down” part of life and helps us recognize those times as a reality and seeks to help.

So who was speaking at it?

This is from the conference website:

Pam Barkley,
Mrs. United States 1995

Embarrassed, humiliated, and betrayed are just a few words to describe Pamela’s loss of her 10 year marriage after a high as a successful business owner, foster mother, author and pageant celebrity representing married women.

Pamela shares her life testimony, the pitfalls of marrying unequally yoked and the dangers of having foolish expectations toward God.

Wow... I'd love to go hear it!
