Faith and Family Night with Silver Stars

17 Jun

Last week, the WNBA San Antonio Silver Stars hosted their annual Faith and Family Night.

The Christian Women’s Small Business Association was invited to hold the American flag on the court during the National Anthem. Our leader Anna brought us sashes and crowns to wear as we are the daughters of a King. Thanks Anna! You know how to make us feel special.

My new friend Coach Liz and I are excited before we walk on the court.

After much practice we made it on the court to proudly hold the flag during the National Anthem. What an honor!

I really wanted a photo holding the Stars Squad pom-poms but they were generous enough to have the whole squad take the photo with me! Thanks Jessica for not letting me leave until we got this shot 🙂

We watched the game and the STARS won 80 – 67. Way to go Silver Stars!

What a great way to celebrate our founder’s birthday. Happy Birthday Anna!

After the game Mark B. Spencer and the Greater Love Praise Team led worship in an intimate setting.  Sophia Young, #33 on Silver Stars player shared a little bit about what it is like to be a Christian in the WNBA.

It doesn’t matter if I have a great game or a terrible game. He is always gonna be there for me. That’s the great thing about a relationship with Christ. -Sophia Young

Sophia then introduced former University of Texas quarterback, current Cleveland Browns quarterback and self-professed Christian, Colt McCoy.  His message was about finding contentment as believers. He asked the audience if everything was taken away, would Jesus be enough?

The most important thing in our life is our relationship with Christ. … So I pray tonight for all of us in our walks in our everyday life that we would be able to find that place that we could operate in contentment knowing Jesus is in control. -Colt McCoy

You can see the After Game Worship and Testimonials on the Silver Stars website.

The whole night was full of friends and FUN! Thanks Silver Stars for keeping this tradition and thanks Anna for organizing this event for CWSBA !

CWSBA on Great Day SA

10 Jun

Every once in a while, you are blessed to find a group of people that make a positive impact on your life. For almost five years, I have been a part of a empowering group of women – San Antonio’s Christian Women’s Small Business Association. This group of women share a purpose of building their own business and a passion to serve God along the way. We encourage one another to be our best in our roles as entrepreneurs, business owners, sales professionals, ministers or work at home moms. I’ve received great business advice, referrals and prayer at our meetings. Oh, we have fun too!! Some of these ladies have become my life long friends.

Last week we were invited to KENS 5 morning show, Great Day SA, to be in the studio audience. Great Day SA is a local morning show in San Antonio aired live Monday- Friday at 9am Central time. We had the best time! If you have not ever been on set for Great Day SA, it is an incredible experience. The whole staff moved at the speed of light to make sure the TV audience gets a great show! And still they made us feel like VIP.

Doc Watkins and South Texas Jazz band entertained us with all the tunes on the episode we were on, Wednesday, June 6. Check out Doc Watkins at LUNA on Thursday Nights.

The first guest on the show was senior writer with SA Express-News, Richard C. Oliver, who talked about the Spurs before their final game in the NBA Western Conference Finals. Because I love Twitter, it just makes my day when I meet Tweeps I follow in real life. So it was super cool to get to meet Richard. Follow him @richardcoliver for info about all things sports in San Antonio.

After the show all the ladies posed for a photo with host Bridget Smith. Thanks for the ‘photojournalistic’ angle, Jessica! (wink)

My dear friend and founder of CWSBA, Anna Quesada, and me on set before the show! Thanks for setting this all up Anna and inviting us to come along!

And finally, I was so excited to take my own photo with Bridget! She is a hometown girl, born and raised in San Antonio. I love her energy on the show! She also surprised us with a little performance on the organ playing a little gospel music during one of the breaks! A woman of many talents …

Christian Women’s Business Association meets once a month, usually the third Thursday of the month. Our next meeting is June 21, 2012 at 11:30am. Visit www.cwsba.com for more information. If you share the same purpose and passions, we would love to see you there!
