I went to a big seminar called Impact over the weekend! It was amazing! There were over 1000 teenagers there! We stayed at the Hilton, and it lasted three days. The speaker was Bob Lenz, who was really funny and did a good job at speaking about life issues today, in a different way. He wrote a great book, called Grace, which I own. Here's part of his bio:

Author and international speaker, Bob Lenz, has an intense passion to share the love of Christ. Whether for an audience of 10 or 10,000, Bob Lenz connects with the hearts and minds of youth like no other speaker can. He shares experiences that help youth deal with real life while igniting their faith, instilling hope and challenging them to make a difference in their world.

He captures the audience’s attention with hilarious true stories, embarrassing moments and a healthy dose of personal guffaws. His stories leave youth rolling in laughter, bringing down the walls of skepticism and removing any expectation that it was just going to be another boring motivational speech. Within moments, he can share another side to the stories that makes a point about the condition of the human heart and the grace of God, leaving an entire audience hushed in reflective silence and hanging on every word. 

Bob Lenz speaks to over 350,000 teens and parents across North America each year through school assembly programs and faith-based outreaches and events. His down-to-earth style and genuine concern leave a lasting impression.

The rest of his Bio is on his website:

I wanted to say how much I appreciated the people who work at the Hilton, because they were so kind to all of us!
