This is now the second year that I have been able to participate in the house band at the Godchicks Women's Conference. It is always an amazing time and it is so great to serve these thousands of women in such a huge capacity. We literally prepared for over a month. We had like 4 six-hour rehearsals....some of which didn't even include a bathroom break; and all of which we didn't get to sit down almost the whole time! The reason they were so long is because we were coordinating lighting cues, sound settings, in-ear monitor mixes for like 30 different people (all of which would change for each song), video cues with corresponding click tracks, transitions between each of the elements, walk on songs for the guest speakers, dance numbers, and we had to actually rehearse the songs multiple times to make sure all of these elements were working together seamlessly. It was beautiful to watch it all come together.
Overall, the conference went off pretty much without any problems. I basically got the opportunity to perform a ridiculous amount of songs, with some of the most talented musicians I know, in an effort to serve and inspire women from all around the world, and bring healing, change, and restoration to their lives. How awesome is that?!?!
