Love….DW 2012


Today I had the absolute TREAT to enjoy Designing Women Conference with 900ish other women!

So much love, thought, care and blessing had gone into every little detail of the day.

The speakers were amazing! They shared their story of how God’s love had changed them as they encountered His presence for themselves…

I experienced God’s love afresh and felt His smile on my life.

I had the joy of spending the day with these amazing women too (and little Jack who survived me spilling my lunch on his head :)!
I’m already looking forward to DW 2013 :)

A superhero kind of Sunday…

This morning our church had its first kids service! It was such a wonderful time for everyone…

The theme was superheroes…and we did our best to bring out our SUPER sides! Noah I think is the most convincing :)

A bit of batman, spider man and superman mixed into one!

“King of Majesty, this is my one desire just to be with you my Lord, just to be with you my Lord!
Jesus you are the Savior of my soul and forever I will give my praises to you!”

Byron looking a little dazed as a super baby…

Even super hero musicians!

I loved seeing the kids being honored, valued, loved and having FUN! For me as a child growing I heard about God for the first time at school during religious instruction time, when an elderly man would volunteer his time and come into my Grade One classroom and teach my classmates and I about God. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to hear at a young age about the God of the universe who made me, loves me and lovingly sent His son Jesus Christ to die for me to give me eternal life. I still wonder at God’s grace and love and I love that I can have a relationship with the Creator of the universe. I’m so thankful and so thankful that my children can know God too.
