Have you guys ever seen the little search box in the upper left corner of my blog? I had no idea it was there but it’s a handy little guy in case you want to find something from an old post. Hope that makes it easier if you’re trying to track something down, and if not, let me know and I’ll try and find it
Okay, I want to tell you about the AMAZING weekend I had this past weekend. I got to go to a True Woman Conference, and if you haven’t heard of Nancy Leigh DeMoss, you need to. I had spent some time with her for a radio interview the week prior and absolutely fell in love with her ministry minded heart. I finished her book “Brokenness: The Heart God Revives ” in one plane ride and I’m pretty sure I got snot on the guy next to me because I was a WRECK. A beautiful, humbled, challenged, grateful wreck. After I got home from visiting her ministry I told Todd I really wanted to sponsor one of the girls who works there (Meet Liz!) because they raise support instead of receiving salaries, and we are so overjoyed to get to be a part of their ministry in this way. And then I made a crazy, wonderful last minute decision to go to the conference in Dallas and caught a flight 2 hours later. I am so glad I did…what a precious time of worship and fellowship. I got to sit by (and have my picture taken with, thankyouverymuch) Priscilla Shirer, who is one of my Bible-teaching heroes.
And the most awesome moment of that was when the speaker asked us to turn to Zechariah and I broke out into cold sweats. Priscilla’s opened as if the hand of God did it Himself, and a light shone on the perfect verse as I tried to remember the song and play it cool. Anyway, it was fantastic other than that
If for some reason you might want to join me in raising support for Liz (I know, she’s a stranger, but she is awesome and you will be so blessed to share in her journey!!) let me know and I will fill you in on all the details. She’s a little short of her goal and sometimes strangers find amazing ways to bless others:)
I’m going to finish up my preparations for Relevant tomorrow and will head out on Thursday. Please be praying that I will do a good job of connecting while I’m speaking, and also that I won’t fall down or throw up.
And also, this will be my longest trip away from the girls (3 nights) and I’m really upset about it. Could you please pray for peace for all of us and safety for them? I so appreciate it. They will be in great hands but I’m a mommy and it makes me worry to be away…
(Awkward transition to next random topic)
I’m feeling like I’m either putting too much pressure for my kids to be doing chores or I’m not expecting enough. The girls will be eight in December, Kate just turned 5. So this is going to be a free-for-all but would you all be willing to tell me some things around the house you feel like are appropriate for different ages (running dishwasher, doing laundry, sweeping, cleaning rooms etc). I’m so curious what other people do!!! I’ve been wanting to ask you all about your thoughts on this and can’t wait to read what you write!
Sorry…too tired to try and make this post prettier :)
