When founder Steve Arterburn first envisioned Women of Faith, pint-sized dynamo Patsy Clairmont was one of the first speakers he signed up for this new event. Sixteen years later both Patsy and Women of Faith are still going strong! Patsy once suffered from agoraphobia, unable to leave her house or even her bedroom. Now she skips around the country in her cowboy boots sharing stories and insights. “One of my favorite people in Scripture is Moses…Right at the beginning of his life he starts off as a basket case.” Patsy Clairmont WoF: Patsy, do you really call your PT Cruiser “Babycakes”? Patsy: I do. I feel that cars operate better if they have a name. “I don’t see anywhere in the Book where it tells us we will have it all together until we see the sweet feet of Jesus.” Patsy Clairmont Patsy loves a rainy day, a good book, and a deep cushioned chair. Given a day off, she shops, solves the world’s problems with a friend over lunch, and hugs the stuffing out of her two grandsons, Justin and Noah. [image – there’s one of her with the boys from last year’s AdvoCare banner] See Patsy in person at Over the Top! On Fridays she joins forces with Andy Andrews (who refers to Patsy as “my favorite tiny person”) before settling in with her Porch Pals for the Friday night-Saturday sessions. Don’t miss it!
