Without a doubt, the Point of Grace tour bus will be crowded this fall as the female foursome begin their "Girl of Grace" conferences with their own children in tow. On August 7, member Terry Jones gave birth to her third child, Mallory Louise Jones, and new mom Shelley Breen recently welcomed daughter Caroline Phillips Breen into the world on September 8. Heather Payne also expects to deliver her first child this month.
Four "Girls of Grace" conferences will be held this fall, beginning with the inaugural conference in Lakeland, Fla., (October 4-5) and following with dates in Dallas, Tex. (October 25-26), Denver, Colo. (November 8-9), and Grand Rapids, Mich. (November 15-16).
Point of Grace members will each lead seminars at the various conferences. Topics include "Boys, Boys, Boys" led by Denise Jones, "Father, Mother, Sister, Brother – How Do We Relate?" with Shelley Breen, "Friendship & Self-Esteem" led by Terry Jones, and "Quiet Time & Journaling" with Heather Payne. Additional featured speakers include Nancy Alcorn, founder and president of Mercy Ministries of America, and Susie Shellenberger, editor of Focus on the Family's BRIO magazine. A Point of Grace concert will round out each conference, along with a performance by special guest, Reunion Records artist Joy Williams.
A Girls of Grace CD (featuring top female Christian artists including Jaci Velasquez, Out Of Eden, Joy Williams, Rachael Lampa, Nichole Nordeman, Jennifer Deibler of FFH and Christy Nockels of Watermark), journal, and devotional book have also been released in support of the conferences.
