On Wednesday, September 8, I had the amazing priviledge of laughing with a group of Lutheran ladies—and not just any group, an enormous group of about 135. The area gathering of the Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America was held at a camp on the shores of the beautiful Twin Lakes in Northwest Iowa. I was the keynote speaker at the event, which was a day-long retreat with lots of holy laughter.

The night before, I got to stay in this beautiful cabin with a view of the lake. My wonderful hostess,
Donna, is pictured with me below.

Below are some action shots from the day.
