Ladies Conference "Let Your Light Shine"


Well, our ladies conference was a blast as usual. We had a group of 17 ladies go!! I was so excited. Every year it's been my goal to have the same amount of ladies or more go to this conference. This year I thought we would be doing great to just get the same amount as last year but was surprised with 17 ladies! The biggest blessing of the trip was on the way home. One of the ladies with us doesn't go to our church but was invited by her friend to go. And when we were almost home we got a phone call letting us know that she received Christ as her Savior. WooHoo!! What a blessing! She is such a sweet lady and is already planning on attending next year's ladies conference with us and she wants to bring her daughter along.

Again there were so many things at conference that the Lord spoke to my heart about. Many things I need to work on. But just being up there and being close to some of the ladies in our church for that time is such a great blessing. I am so thankful to the Lord for the ladies He has given to me in this ministry.

My mom was able to come with us and that was a lot of fun! I really enjoyed being able to spend the time with her. We don't get many times like that so I think we will try to make this a yearly thing for her as well.

On the way up I missed getting on one highway but thankfully I knew of another way to get on. Then when we were getting on another one further ahead we somehow ended up going the wrong way which led us to paying the toll across a different bridge. I don't know how many bridges we ended up going over by the end of our trip but my traveling companion and I ended the trip with the inside joke of "We LOVE bridges!"
