Session will focus on helping women find God's joy for every storm in life and helping women to deal with tests and troubles -- growing and changing as they find joy. Blackmon has been called warm, witty and wise. She is a popular speaker at women's events and at college lectureships across the country. Blackmon also is author of "The Begging Place," a book about prayer for Christian women. She said her greatest desire is to please God and to do His will, and her prayer is that God will use her to help any woman who might need her.
