I recently ordered tickets for me and my friend Amy to the Women of Faith conference in August. If you've ever been to it, you'll probably understand why I am ecstatic! It is amazing! I attended several years in a row throughout college and the first year or two I was married. But then we were attending a church that didn't get a group of women together to go, so I just kind of stopped going. Last year, I decided that I'd like to go again, so I invited Amy to her first ever WOF experience, and we had a great time!
It's incredible, yet not surprising, that God knows what we need exactly when we need it. He knew that back in August, I needed a major pick-me-up. I needed to hear a word and have an experience that would catapult me into a deeper relationship with Him. I needed to get back to worshipping with reckless abandon. I needed a fire lit under me. I needed to acknowledge that I had been stagnant in my walk with Him. He knew. He knew, and He provided exactly what I needed in that weekend. And the perfect friend to share it with. The minute the conference was over, I couldn't wait to go back. Ordering tickets just put us one step closer to being there...even though we have to wait another 6 months. :)
If you've never been, you should totally round up some girlfriends, tell your husband he's in charge of the kids, and order some tickets! You won't regret it!
