WOW! Weekend!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for your prayers for the Lets Talk About it Conference. It was really unique and God really moved. We learned a LOT as leaders and our prayer is that the students did too!! We felt the Holy Spirit presence throughout the whole weekend. Each part!

Here are some fun photos...

Me speaking HIS Truth! 

So fun to hear my hubby speak too!! Inspired!

Steph & Chris (my sister & bro-in-law) and Josh and I spoke during the conference. The Lord unified our message and it was SO fun!!!

513Free led us in worship. If you are in the MN/WI/IA area... check this band out! Seriously their ministry is powerful.

This was the "response" time for the students.

This represented a 2-way street. Relationships are a 2-way street! God is constantly in pursuit of us. Every minute, with patience, love, kindness, etc. (these are they yellow arrows). We can choose to accept this pursuit of avoid it. There are obstacles/distractions that could be holding us back (pictures hanging on the clothesline) -- The students placed a person on the road where they felt they were in their relationship with God. It was really unique! Physically responding can be SO powerful!

More about our weekend to come... I am home SICK today. Ugh, a migraine came back with vengeance yesterday. It was awful! Praying for healing and believing that by taking a "rest" day... It will be gone!

Going to try to blog catchup today too... if I can... :) Blessings!
