Jeremy Riddle added to NWLC Southwest! And a glimpse into the top-secret happenings in Suzie and mine’s office

Moving closer to our conference dates means filling up more holes on Suzie’s whiteboard. Have you met Suzie yet? Well let me tell you about Suzie. Suzie is the “Director of Training and Development,” aka NWLC conference planner extraordinaire. Each phone call, email, grid, plan, and every other intricate detail she tackles, propels all of us towards one purpose: to make NWLC happen. I am so thankful for her, her hard work, and her commitment to everyone around her.

Suzie is generous enough to let me share her office, which is practically like being roommates. And with most roommates, you get to know each other really well. Suzie often talks to herself but I’ve learned to tune her out, which is good, except when she’s actually trying to talk to me. Oh, and we both love Oreo McFlurries. This comes in handy when we’re having a stressful day and need something to lift our spirits (because everyone knows that’s what Oreos and ice cream were made for).

So now that you’ve met Suzie, let me introduce you to Suzie’s whiteboard. Now, this whiteboard is somewhat top secret, but I’m sharing it with you anyways because it’s pretty awesome. And don’t even try to zoom in—I’ve blurred out anything you shouldn’t know yet. Yeah, it’s that top secret.

The whiteboard is the conference matrix, if you will. It is the inanimate version of Suzie, the wealth of knowledge and organization. This whiteboard displays each grid of the three conferences, reminding us who is speaking in which timeslot, which artist is performing where, and which timeslots need to be filled. Each time we announce a new artist, a hole on the whiteboard gets filled, which is like filling up your coffee cup after you lost an hour of sleep because of daylight savings time. And as the conference dates approach, the holes are slowly being replaced with amazing artists and speakers faster and faster.

Speaking of which, we’ve recently added Jeremy Riddle to NWLC Southwest! Filling that hole is better than just a cup of coffee–more like a caramel macchiato if you ask me.

One of my all-time favorite worship songs is “Sweetly Broken,” by Jeremy Riddle. I was outside of the sanctuary working the last NWLC when I heard the muffled guitar followed by the lyrics that never fail to cover me with awe-inspiring chills. Needless to say, I left the Worship Leader booth to be swept away by the current of worship that filled the room.  I can’t wait to see what Jeremy will bring to NWLC Southwest!

    Even though I work just down the hall from you, I learn so much and am entertained and intrigued by your blog. What’s next…? Who and what will be added to Suzie’s whiteboard? The suspense is almost too much to bear. I’m with you on Jeremy, an amazing and authentic prayer poet.
