Celebrate What Matters with Selah

SelahAmy Perry of Selah admits her first Women of Faith experience was “not what I expected.” And that’s because…“I’ve never been a ‘girlfriend’” Amy tells us, “I have friends that are girls, but I never did sleepovers or boy gossip—I’d rather have hung out with the guys in the science lab. So the idea of a whole weekend devoted to women was a little off-putting to me.”

Fair enough; a lot of women feel that way. “But when we got there,” Amy remembers, “I felt so loved and welcomed. I wept as each speaker shared from her heart. I realized that there is an importance for women spending time with other women, and that not all women will hurt [you] or gossip about you. It was an amazing experience. Sheila Walsh’s talk changed my life . . . something Sheila said was like a light bulb going off in my spirit. It changed my life.”

This fall Amy can be found at Women of Faith most weekends, performing at Celebrate What Matters with Allan Hall and Todd Smith, the other members of Selah. (Todd’s wife, Angie, will also be there; she’s speaking in cities on our ‘west’ tour.) At the events, the members of Selah celebrate the hope they’ve discovered and share hope with broken people through their songs.

For a taste of Selah’s powerful music, watch this video from Selah (you might want to have a tissue handy):

Hear Selah in concert, in person, at Celebrate What Matters events this fall. See when they’ll be in a city near you.

    Yahoo! I hope to take part in Celebrate What Matters-even before I heard this sweet invitation of a song…there is a line that so ministered too “Don’t be afraid”…to suffer for righteousness sake. The suffering can come in many forms. And we often are afraid, cause it can hurt-but I praise and thank our great M&M for His invitation and example and sweet Presence-oh, and this fact-He does NOT waste the pain-growing pains He’s taught me to call them-My Redeemer redeems our sin- and pain….Thank you so much Selah for this lovely reminder/encouragement/battle cry!

    Selah always ministers to my heart. I feel their emotion and their message. God is using these three (Todd, Amy, and Alan) is such a mighty way touching the hearts and souls of so many. Thank you for sharing this clip with us. To God Be The Glory!

  7. I just returned this weekend from seeing Selah, and I was blessed by each and every speaker that was in Des Moines. This was my first WOF event, and I can guarantee you it will not be my last. God has so filled my heart up, with His love. I have been a Christian most of my life, but have struggled with my self-image for so many years. I now know and believe in my heart that God has made me just the way He intended to. Thank you, Selah for blessing my life, and to everyone who spoke at Women of Faith in Des Moines. My heart is overflowing with love from you all, and love from our Heavenly Father.

    We heard Selah at WOF in Sacramento last year. They so touched me. My daughter was going through a very difficult situation and when Amy sang, “I look to Him” I claimed that song and when I went home, Stacy and I took that song as ours and it has been a year of sobriety for her. Praise God and thank you to Amy and Selah for being God’s hands and heart and voice.

    This is a beautiful story and an amazing song. Women of faith have touched my soul for the last 5 years. I attended the last conference in Columbus and it was one of the best ever. Love every part of it.

  16. I was in Indy this past week end, and it was awesome. I do wish that the entire group wwould be at all the events, but reallize that it’s hard for them. I especially missed Shelia there, and would have loved Selah!!!! We all struggle on a daily basis, but having the joy that comes from the people of God is the pleasure that brings that inner peace!! Thank you Women of Faith. I have attended many times in various cities, and will continue until I can not go anymore. It’s sooo worth it!!!

    I have just returned from Celebrate What Matters in Indianapolis and I so wish now that Selah had been there but I realize that everyone cannot be everywhere!! It was once again a wonderful time and I have come home filled with God’s love for me and his unconditional forgiveness.. I have alot of healing to do but after listening to Sandi Patty and Brenda Warner and reading their books I to can be proud of who I am and not be ashamed of my past..Myself and my five friends are looking forward to next year and even thinking about traveling to another city for some adventure..
    God Bless You All.

  18. God has blessed my life in so many ways . Taking me out the pit and delivering me to his arms. Just returned from Women of faith in Des Moines and I can’t say enough about everone and the Power of his presence there. Thank you all for your ministry, sharing and caring. I brought a small group this year (16) and we all left so pumped for life in Christ. Thank you for every thing again and continue this great ministry you have. Love and blessing to all.

    Beautiful…thank you. I found Jesus was I was empty, sad and alone. I am a chrisitan in progress and I truly want to be the best for God.

    • Add to that list ashamed and I could have written it! I think we are all “Christians in progress” and will be until the day the Lord takes us home! I love you Jesus!
