It’s great to be guest blogging on Robin Lee’s site again. She gave me space last November, too. Thank you, Robin.
It was October 2003. She was the keynote speaker for the second annual American Christian Fiction Writer’s conference. I was the inadequate conference coordinator. (Never, ever doubt God’s grace to help you do something you don’t know how.)
I’d heard a lot about Robin, but was not familiar with her work, or person.
She was gracious and lovely. Kind, soft spoken and very transparent. I’ve seen her once a year since then, and she’s the same.
Her opening talk in ’03 touched to every attendee. People still talk about it.
What did she say? In a word, God is good. Robin talked about her life that morning, highlighted her successes as well as her failures. Throughout, she reminded us of the Father’s love and grace.
God ministered to every attendee. There was such a graciousness in the room. Robin is an encourager and mentor.
Recently, I bought a Mac computer. Robin, bless her, answered many of my technical questions. For a brief time, she was my tech support. <G>
Robin exemplifies Jesus and wants others to succeed in Him. She is the real deal.
And, on a pleasant side note: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ROBIN!
Colossians 4:6 “Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person.”
Robin here: I’m not quite sure how to respond other than to say thanks for Rachel’s kind words. I’m so blessed by the many special people God has brought into my life because of my ministry of writing, both writers and readers. Rachel is one of those special people.
