imagine & orange

This past weekend I got home from the Orange Conference, put on by the ReThink group, in Atlanta GA.  What a way to spend 6 days!  2 days in a car, through 4 states and 11 hours, with 3 other women!  AND we all love Jesus.  I had an amazing time.

Before we left, Jason and I took Jerek to the Imagination Station in down town Toledo.  We thought it would be a great way to spend our last day together before my trip.

It was fun.

We got drenched.

It poured and poured and we refuse to pay 7 bucks for valet parking, so we walked 2 blocks, in the rain, with a broken umbrella.  We pitched the umbrella in the bathroom trash can . . .

I just wanted to mention this as a disclaimer for my unruly locks.  I look like a wild child!  But it was fun.

 In the wind tunnel:

 Conked out!

So, the next day I left for Orange at like 6:30 in the morning.  Orange is a huge ministry conference.  I took 5 classes on Wednesday plus the first large session, 2 on Thursday and Friday with 2 main sessions both of those days as well.  My brain was mush by lunch on Wednesday!

God taught me so much and I was so challenged as a Christian, a wife and mother, and a ministry worker.  My heart is so excited by all I learned and by all the changes I want to make so that my 3-6 yr olds will leave my class and really be changed for Jesus.  How precious is the job that I have been given.  That God has entrusted me with an hour a week to speak the truth and love of His word into the hearts of tender children!  They are the church and they need a solid foundation of God's word and his love so that the church will carry on in truth and true worship.

So, here are some pictures and I swiped some video from some guy on youtube because his audio is WAAAY better then mine!
