Get revived at 2013 God’s Satisfied Woman Conference coming July 27

This annual, spiritually rejuvenating event will take place July 27, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“Momentum is gaining as women from all across Northeast Texas and Southeast Oklahoma position themselves together in one location, under one roof and all for the glory of God,” founder of SEB Ministries Shay Easter-Bills said. “Many gifts were given to the body of Christ and three of them will be used mightily at the conference to mend the broken hearted, deliver the bound and to set free captives.”

The conference will be held at the PJC Ballroom (2400 Clarksville Street, Paris, Texas).

“It is my prayer that one day we can move it to a different, larger venue, but PJC has been so good to us and the ballroom is great,” she said.

A Paris native, founder of SEB Ministries, and author of Is Your Ghost Holy and When Faith Fights will be speaking at the event, being joined by evangelist and author of Sanctified H.O.T.T.I.E.Damita Carthen-Crosby, of Jericho City COGIC (DFW), and co-pastor Sandra Warren, of Life Outreach Ministries, Inc., of Arkansas.

“I try and get people in from other areas, so that people can hear speakers that they do not usually get to,” Bills said.

This conference has been especially designed with powerful speakers and teachers of the Gospel, as well as anointed praise dancers, worship groups, various vendors and even a Christian comedian, making it a desired conference for women every year.

Although this is a women’s conference, men are welcome to attend as well.

“God’s word is just that: God’s Word,” Bills said. “It’s universal and goes for all of us. It’s important to us women to see the support of men. It means a lot.”

“God is moving in memorable, life changing ways through SEB Ministries,” said Bills. “Don’t miss out on your destiny. Register yourself, your women’s group or family and friends for the 2013 God’s Satisfied Woman Conference.”

Registration is $15 and includes a souvenir program, ‘goodie’ bag, provided lunch and many opportunities for door prizes. To register visit www.godssatisfiedwomanconference.eventbrite.com or mail funds to the SEB Ministries Headquarters at 1125 Pine Bluff, Paris, Texas.  You can also call 903.335.6676 for tickets.

Registrants must be at least 18 years of age, and no childcare will be provided.  Seating is limited.

The Paris affiliate of Habitat for Humanity, a Christian housing organization, is requesting volunteers for the Saturday, June 22 ABWK painting project.

Tomorrow, volunteers will gather at a local two-bedroom house to coat the walls of the structure in a fresh layer of paint. The structure is small and should not take a great amount of time, according to Judy Martin.

If you would like to sign up to volunteer for Saturday’s project, contact Judy Martin at 903.783.0599.

Themed ‘A Starry Night in Paris…Save the Last Dance’, the 2013 Leadership Lamar County Dancing With the Stars event attracted hundreds of people to the Love Civic Center on Saturday night and raised thousands of dollars for the Red River Valley Down Syndrome Society.

This is the fourth year for Leadership’s Dancing With the Stars, and it may very well have been the best one yet.  With a complimentary beer and wine bar, a catered dinner, a silent auction, live auction and live music entertainment on top of the main attraction of Paris ‘celebrity’ dancers competing for the title of champion, swaths of people packed the Civic Center.

Chip Waggoner from Dallas’ Fox Channel 4 was even there for green room interviews with the dancers.

By 9pm all eyes were focused on the stage in the middle of the venue eager to see the three rounds of ‘Dancing With the Stars’.  The judges — two of which were dancing professionals, the other two chosen in the auction by bidders — accounted for 75% of the dancers’ scores, while the crowd accounted for the remaining 25%.

Each Paris ‘Celebrity’ dancer was paired with a professional dancer chosen as a partner several months ago.  The dancers were Tom Caldwell, LaJuana Eckel, Cayton Flippen, LaWanda Knight-Ladell, Tray Turner and Michelle Wall.

The competition was close, but after the dust settled and all the scores tallied, Cayton Flippen danced his way to champion of this year’s ‘Dancing With the Stars’.  Finishing at a close second was LaJuana Eckel, followed by Michelle Wall in third.
