Wow... I went and started working full time again and now it's been a month since my last post! Life is CRAZY and busy and exhausting- but good :)
I had the best weekend in Austin for this...
Y'all- I cannot say enough about IF: Gathering and my time in Austin worshipping & learning with 2,000 other women. From their website, this is what IF is all about:
WE EXIST TO GATHER, EQUIP AND UNLEASH THE NEXT GENERATION OF WOMEN TO LIVE OUT THEIR PURPOSE.
You can clearly see why I am inspired by this thing!
I headed to Austin Friday afternoon and went straight to the conference in downtown Austin. I was a little late to the first session, but was happy to be flying solo so that I could sneak into an open spot a few rows from the stage :) They made dinner reservations at some local restaurants for us so I enjoyed a delicious meal with some new Canadian friends- awesome eh?! Thankfully my sweet college roommate lives in Austin and has a spare room so I got to enjoy a great night's sleep and see an old friend! She is a great hostess and it was such a treat to spend time with her!
I learned so much this weekend and was challenged in so many areas of my life. I am SO glad I listened to the Spirit's nudge to go and that I got to see three friends that I hadn't planned to see there! Such a blessing!
I highly suggest checking out their website https://ifgathering.com, their daily devotionals IF:Equip, and gathering 6 friends around the table for a couple of hours each month for IF:Table!
IF GOD IS REAL... NOW WHAT?
I'll be thinking about this a lot and what it looks like in my life. I can't wait to see how God uses my strength & courage this year!
