The "Who I Saw in Tulsa, Oklahoma" contest is officially over. Two of you got the answer completely right (you'll get $75.00 of products) and eight of you were very close so you'll get the $50.00 of products.
Before I reveal the answer, I have to admit to being shocked that Garth and Trisha live near Tulsa. For some reason I thought they were in Nashville. This answer was the most popular but not correct. Maybe next time--I'd love to go to dinner with them!! Also, did Mitt Romney used to live in OK?? Also Dr. Phil?
So for the correct answer! First, let me tell you about my experience. I was at the Tulsa Creating Keepsakes Convention last weekend when a sweet lady (Sheryl Kloehr--she and her hubby are in the second photo) asked me to appear on a Christian television program called "Make Your Day Count." She then started telling me about the scrapbook room in her home and it sounded so amazing I knew I had to see it. She invited me to her home the next evening (along with Paper Crafts Pro Sue Neal). Friday night came and I was sicker than a dog. I had the worst stomach ache and knew I couldn't go to Sheryl's house feeling so lousy. However, that amazing scrapbook room was beguiling me plus she'd invited a couple over to meet us so I went ahead and made the trip to her house. Upon entering the door I got very sick and spent some time in the lady's room. I then went to the main room to meet Sheyl's husband and the couple they'd invited over--Richard and Lindsay Roberts (Oral Roberts son and daughter-in-law).
Richard is the President of Oral Roberts University and Oral Roberts Ministries and is a televangelist. He took over his father's duties 15 years ago when he retired. Lindsay hosts "Make Your Day Count" and has many other duties at the univerisity and in the ministry. While chatting with them, I got sick again. After another trip to the restroom, Richard, Lindsay and Sheryl were so kind and said a beautiful prayer asking that I be healed. I was very touched by their concern, genuine nature and strong faith. And--how many people can say that Richard Roberts prayed for them in person!?! Wow!
So--the famous couple I met in Tulsa, Oklahoma was Richard and Lindsay Roberts. We had an evening of wonderful conversation and they gave Sue and myself a personal tour of Oral Roberts University (very impressive). They were down to earth, friendly and the real deal. LOVED meeting them and I'm excited to appear on Lindsay's show.
So--there is is in a nutshell.
