This weekend is Women of Joy and I am so excited to be going!! It is going to be a great weekend with friends and family. There will also be come of my favorite speakers/performers there! Karen Kingsbury! Kay Arthur! Steven Curtis Chapman! Michael W. Smith! There will also be two ladies there that I have never had the opportunity to hear speak, Lori Salierno and Anita Renfroe. I am most excited about Karen Kingsbury! I have read all of her books, and absolutely love her! Hopefully, I will get the chance to meet her, and will have pictures when I get back.
I am excited about what God is going to do this weekend. Last year, all of the speakers talked about the storms in life. One speaker said, "You are always in one of two places in your life, Just coming out of a storm, or about to go into a storm." I remember thinking to myself, "My life is going so well, so I guess that means that I'm about to go into a storm." God was definitely trying to teach me something last year, and prepare me for what was about to happen. This past year has been one storm after another. And Andrew and I are both going through them. Andrew, with his job, and me with infertility. I know God will use the speakers this year in a big way. And I'm hoping and trusting that this year, God will bring us out of these storms.
