Last weekend I went to The Beautiful Conference at a nearby church. I went last year too. I really enjoyed it again this year! Kari Jobe was the worship leader, once again. And yes, she is even more amazing in person than she is on cd! No lie! They had a different speaker this year. I sure did miss Angela Thomas, but LOVED hearing this year's speaker too. Her name is Susie Larson & she was great! :)
This year, I ended up going with my friend Aimie from church. She had gotten some girls together to go - a couple of college girls from our church, her cousin & another girl. It was fun getting to spend some time with these ladies! We met at Dempsey's first & had dinner together. Then we headed on over to the conference. We had worship with Kari Jobe, a session by Susie Larson, a break, & then a concert by Kari. It was AWESOME!
On Saturday morning I headed back to the conference & met up with my group. There was worship with Kari, a session with Susie, a break, and then another session with Susie. We closed with more worship with Kari & a lot of people went forward for prayer. It was a great conference! I truly felt His presence in worship. I felt like I was really meeting with God. Something I can do at home, of course, but don't often enough. This was the day after finding out i lost my job & i have to tell you - God brought SUCH PEACE to my heart as I was worshiping Him. I am not worried about it anymore & know God has an awesome new job waiting for me! He is GOOD.
Here are some pics from Saturday of the conference!
Me & Aimie - my friend since 5th grade & my roomie until we finally got husbands! Haha! I love her.
Renee & Jessica - soon-to-be first time mama's!!!
Rachel & Katelyn, two of our college girls. This was my first time meeting Rachel, even though she leads a lot of worship at our church. I am in love with her voice. I have called her "the next kari jobe" several times!
Cousins - Brittany & Aimie
My friend Amber from bootcamp also came! She & her best friend Cristy sat behind us! :)
We had a really great time! Wish it lasted a little longer! Haha! Very soon, I will share stuff from Susie's message on Freedom. It was a powerful message!
P.S. I have implemented a new commenting system & so far I love it. I am tired of so many telling me they can't comment on my blogs & I have heard good things about disqus. If you hate it, I will take it down! Just let me know your thoughts if you haven't already. :)
