Jo Dee Messina sang that prayer on Saturday, and it caught on! We were all singing it, praying it, and—to be honest—we all experienced it. God opened up the windows of our souls, and His light poured in!

During the meet and greet with conference volunteers, Dawn Moore, our amazing Local Conference Coordinator, taught us how to be a true Arkansas Razorback as we learned the famous cheer.
