PUNXSUTAWNEY — You've heard of doing something on a wing and a prayer — as in doing something when you're not prepared. But have you heard of doing something on a whim and a prayer? While some would use the two expressions interchangeably, they have very different meanings.
The Punxsutawney Christian Women's Conference started back in 2010 on what one might call the latter — a whim, or arbitrary impulse, and a prayer, or a few of them.
This year, the featured speaker at the fourth version of the conference — which will be held at the Punxsutawney First Church of God on Saturday, Oct. 12 — will be Rhonda Rhea.
Rhea is a speaker, humor columnist, radio personality and author — having written 10 books, including "How Many Light Bulbs Does it Take to Change a Person?" and her newest release, "Espresso Your Faith — 30 Shots of God's Word to Keep You Focused on Christ."
