to many as "Mama T," Wells has a natural talent for public speaking
that has brought her before thousands of women who have attended the
Women of Faith Conferences, plus conferences through her own A Woman
of God Ministries.
She was named Extraordinary Woman of the Year
in 2008 and was awarded the coveted Lifetime Achievement Award by
the Advanced Writers and Speakers Association. Her most recent book
is "God Is Not Through With Me Yet."
A second featured speaker is Renee Bondi, who, at the age of 29 and
in the midst of an incredibly bright future as a singer and music
teacher, experienced a bizarre accident that left her a
quadriplegic. She will share her amazing story of how, in the face
of tragedy, she addressed issues of giving up and not getting things
her way. She will help the audience see beyond themselves and direct
them to a purer calling of unselfish service.
Bondi is author of
"The Last Dance But Not the Last Song."

As the noon-hour speaker,
Julie Gariss will provide a humorous and creative look at women
through the character of Gladys Frump. For almost two decades Julie
has spoken around the U.S. at retreats, banquets, seminars and
conventions. Through Gladys Frump, Julie will present a close-up and
personal perspective of how women "behave" and "respond" in many of
the roles they fill. Those who know Julie have reported she will
bring her audience to tears... because of laughter.
