This weekend was the culmination of months of work – nine months to be exact. Glory Academy began it’s 10th year in Wilmington this past August and for the past nine months, 65+ students have been working their little patooties off in technique classes and discipleship training so that they could use their gifts for the glory of our Lord. All year – every month – we minister out in our community through the gift of dance – then it all builds up to one HUGE show in May to end our season.

I have to say that I am speechless when it comes to describing how I feel about what took place this weekend. We have some of the best families on the planet at Glory Academy that are dedicated to restoring integrity to the arts in the church. They are amazing and I feel so honored to work with them every week. I also have the most incredible staff anywhere…Melanie, Casey, Lynne, Carolyn, Ashely, Rachel, Elaine and Tim – thank you from the bottom of my heart for your dedication to this ministry.

Now for some pictures…I know that’s what you all really want…Millie Holloman and Matthew Ray came to shoot the show and they captured some really nice shots. These particular shots are from Millie. Thanks for letting me re-post these. You are the best, Mills!

This first set of shots are from the first scene – when God separated the light from the darkness…

    It really was spectacular! I know you must be proud of these girls and guys. I could not get over how well done everything was. Absolutely amazing. I had a great time getting to know a lot of the kids and staff this week. Thanks for letting me come and help where I could. Let me know anytime you guys need an extra set of hands. I’ll be there if at all possible. Love. ❤

    You did a marvelous job. Your team is astounding. In fact, I would say it was incredibly astounding. I am so glad you are on our team and you are taking the arts in Wilmington to another level through GAFA.

    PS. Did you notice that I didn’t use great, amazing or awesome? Gotta love the MS Office Thesaurus. I’m trying to use new words. I think it will make my vocabulary go from good to great. If it does, that would be awesome… Shoot! I used those words again.
