That’s the first thing that comes to my mind when I think about the conference I attended last week. I’m thankful that God blessed me with the opportunity to be there. I’m thankful for His provision in getting me there and His Hand of protection as I traveled to Georgia (by myself – for the first time everrrr). I’m thankful for my family for taking care of my babies (hubby too) while I was away. I’m thankful for my job that allowed me time to go to this conference. I’m thankful for the friends I have made. I’m thankful for the experience I had. I’m just soooo very thankful.
I think it’s impossible to say anything bad about the Winshape Retreat Center – it’s breathtaking, it’s comfortable, the staff is WONDERFUL, the beds were super comfy, the food was PHENOMENAL, it was peaceful, and it was the PERFECT spot for us to come together and praise the Lord.
It was an honor to be surrounded by such beautiful, talented, strong, God-loving, God-filled, and loving women for 4 days. I wish they all lived down the road so I could see them everyday!
I’m so thankful for the speakers and leaders who worked so hard to put this conference on.
Specifically… KAREN STOTT – You are phenomenal. I can not thank you enough for all of the hard work you put into this conference. Thank you for letting God lead you and thank you for bringing us all from behind our computers to build and develop such wonderful friendships!
