It is such a wonderful opportunity for learning, fellowship, and to listen to well-known authors sharing their thoughts and ideas. I can’t wait to see Greg Surratt speak this year; the speakers are always inspirational and open with their wisdom, experience and insight. It is an absolute blessing.”
