Last weekend was our church’s women’s conference. I came home from work that morning, got clean and changed, and headed right back out. I’m so glad I did. And it was the weirdest thing… I’m usually exhausted after working, but I was wide awake and thrilled to be there! Just part of God’s plan, I guess!
Our church’s praise team did an awesome job with the music.
Phyllis Foy was the speaker for the conference, which was themed “Fanning the Flame” from 2 Timothy 1:6-7. Phyllis is a missionary with the North American Mission Board. She and her husband have been to our church several times, and they are such a treat. Phyllis is such a great speaker. God uses her to really speak to her audience – and she’s hilarious in the process. She said someone called the Baptist State Convention and asked for “the comedienne.” She said, “couldn’t they have at least called me spiritual?!” So she’s the spiritual comedienne! They travel all over the country, so if she’s ever in your area, don’t miss it!
In addition to “fanning the flame” she talked about leaving a legacy for your children – including letting them hear you pray for them, and leading by example with your quiet times. We have to fan the flame in our children!
I was so thankful for the message, and I had a great day. The fellowship with friends and the yummy food was an extra plus!
The fellowship hall was beautifully decorated – they actually used the same décor that my friend Nicole used at her wedding two weeks ago.
We had several types of beautiful salads, sandwich wraps, and an assortment of mini cakes for dessert.
The men of our church served lunch in black tie! So cute!
Can’t wait to see what next year’s conference brings!
