Weekend Edition

"The Lord's love never ends; his mercies never stop. They are new every morning . . .” Lamentations 3:22-23 NCV

This weekend, nine of us women traveled to Phoenix to attend a Women of Faith conference.  Now, I must be honest and tell you that for some reason, the week before the conference - I just didn't want to go.  I told the Hubs about this feeling and he said, "There must be something or someone there you are supposed to hear since it seems you want to stay away..."  So I went.  Curiously, I told a friend about the feeling of not wanting to go and she expressed the very same feelings! 

Well, it turned out the Hubs was right - there were speakers, music and topics I was personally meant to hear.  Some things ministered to the very heart of my soul and spirit, others brought tears and some of the music just made me dance in place!  Nicole C. Mullin just makes me want sing, praise and dance!  She is so very full of talent, energy, and passion.  Patsy Clairmont made me laugh so hard and then brought me to tears as did Sheila Walsh.  There were skits, comedy, music, ministry and fellowship.  Lisa Harper, a gifted Bible teacher shared pertinent biblical truths through humor and story.  Lisa Welchel (The Facts of Life) was one of the weekend speakers.

It was a good weekend and we ordered our tickets for next year!  I encourage you, if you ever have the opportunity to attend a weekend conference - do it!  It will bless your soul!  It's as easy as following this web link:  http://www.womenoffaith.com/events/

Hugz to you all,
