GOD's my island hideaway, keeps danger far from the shore,
throws garlands of hosannas around my neck.
(Psa 32:7 MSG)


a day of grace

yesterday we had a WONDERFUL women's conference here. we are blessed to live in a community that has an annual, area-wide, non-denominational women's conferenence. this was the 7th year and due to some wonderful women who were given a vision that was blessed by God, this conference was extra-special. instead of the usual (a Friday night and Saturday morning with local speakers and yummy desserts), this year's event was basically all-day saturday, but with a very special guest speaker: Liz Curtis Higgs! what a gift from God to our little town!

if you don't know who Liz is, you can read this. or just check out her website here.

liz ministered to approximately 1000 women yesterday. that's a pretty big number considering our little town's population is only about 3000! some women came quite a ways, driving 3 or more hours and arriving the night before just to be at this conference! liz spoke about grace--God's Grace. she is blessed to have (and we are blessed that she uses!) the gifts of speaking, teaching, and encouragement. the insights she shared with us about certain scriptures and Bible "stories" yesterday were like choice morsels of meat to me. i'm still digesting it!

our theme (and the title of one of her books)

a down-to-earth, out-going, and loving person, liz took time to make each person she met feel special. it was a day i'll remember for a long time with many fond memories and lessons to live by.

me and liz! tada!
