Women of Faith

Sorry to all the faithful readers out there (Laurie, ahem).  I did not get a chance to read this week.
Both my babies got some horrible virus, so I was at their beck and call every. single. minute.
I loved the extra cuddles, but I am so glad to be back to healthy in our household.
Please forgive me.  I promise to be back with my book update next week. 
We will catch up on chapters 10- 12 then.
I did do something super fun this weekend, though.
My uber-awesome friend, Nicole got me an early Christmas present.  She bought us tickets to attend the "Women of Faith" conference in Tampa.
It. was. incredible.
Basically, it is an intense time of worship and testimonies. 
For two straight days we got to hear about God showing up in some amazing women's lives.
I was absolutely in awe of their honesty and rawness with us.  They had never met these people in the audience, but yet they poured their heart out to help in any way they could.  They desired for their testimonies to help women who felt like they had nothing left to live for.  We have all been there at some point in our lives, and how refreshing to know we aren't alone.
I learned so many things and really felt God's presence all weekend long.
It was so special to get away from everyday life and just concentrate on God's love and overwhelming peace through our struggles in life.  What a marvelous message.

If you ever have a chance to go to one of these, please take the opportunity.
We are going next year in Orlando on October 12th and 13th. 
You can join us if you would like.
And PS:  I would like to take this opportunity to thank my sister and husband who held down the fort and kept my kids alive while I was gone:)  Love you both!
And PPS:  Today is my little bro's birthday, so he will get a post this week.  Happy Birthday, Pete.  Love you old man.
