The FIRST Women Living Well Conference from left to right…Jen from Good Morning Girls, Clare from Peak 313, Ruth from The Better Mom, Courtney from Women Living Well, Whitney from Good Morning Girls, Darlene from Time Warp Wife, Karen Ehman from Proverbs 31 Ministries (and Karen Ehman dot com), Me from here (lol), and Angela from Good Morning Girls.
The very FIRST Women Living Well Conference….what a blessing it was.
If you were able to make it, we were SO glad to have you there with us IN PERSON! It honestly was such a joy to see the faces of women we’ve chatted with online. Giving real hugs instead of cyber ones…hearing your journeys, seeing your smiles, sharing your tears, praying together…wow. I could go on and on!
If you were NOT able to make it. We would still like to have you! Starting Sept 26th, every Thursday for 7 weeks there will be a FREE webcast with recorded clips from the conference! For more information you can visit Women Living Well . I hope to see you there!
“There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.” 1 Cor 12:4-6
As I look at the photo above…I can’t help but think of a quilt….intricately sewn together with life experiences, pain, joy, love, hope- woven together with the goal of being whole, up and running…all parts of the body being used to glorify Christ. One thing I noticed while rooming and working together at the conference was that each one of the ladies above has a deep desire to encourage women in the name of Jesus. In their own unique way…using their own unique gifts…with their own unique relationship with the Lord. How awesome is that? There are just no words. I do believe God put us ladies together according to His purpose because we all love Him and one another so much. I’m so proud of each and every one of these precious lives above. Ohhhh…I can’t even talk about anymore or I’ll cry! lol!
Here are some fun photos taken over the weekend…..
Clare from Peak 313 scolding me, lol! This was our girls night over Nutella pizza…Yes, I will create a replica recipe. It must happen. What a FUN night with lovely ladies!!!!
The next morning, Whitney with Good Morning Girls, prepared the most beautiful devotional for us. She shared the message to never forget our journeys, but to use them for God’s glory!! We are all broken…none of us feel worthy- but we are HIS! We cried, prayed, laughed….an amazing time. I’m pictured “make-up less and all cried out” with my dear friend Katina…she was the one who gave us the idea for a conference and helped plan the entire event!
At the conference from left to right..my Mother-in-Law Kathy, me, my Mom Diane , Grandma Ruth, and my Aunt Cathy. These women have played such valuable roles in my life- Ohhh, how I love them. God has used them to shape me, teach me, guide me, and the list goes on.
There will be more photos to come….make sure to visit all of these lovely ladies blogs for their recaps on our amazing journey together over the weekend! Love to you, Janelle
