This weekend......I have to admit I came to this conference to tag along with a friend. She was unable to come so it ended up being a solo trip. I didn't have any expectations or any idea of the conference. On Friday, I read it was a conference about women teaching women. I thought to myself, "Oh! This should be pretty interesting". The Lord blew my mind! This conference was everything and more! I learned so much about teaching women and the importance of it. I believe I came for God to reveal to me my calling. I have been called to teach women how to find their freedom, hope, and joy in Christ alone. It's crazy because I just wrote this as the mission statement for the future whatever God is planning. Lol I learned this weekend that the biggest tools to accomplish this mission is teaching women how to read God's word. Why? Not to fall in love with the Bible, but fall in love with the author of it.
I just can't believe how much God poured into my little life this weekend! He gave me a coach for teaching women and everything. It's just crazy....last week I didn't know if I wanted to continue poetry and boom! God revealed my calling. I have to admit there is some fear there because of my age and lack of knowledge, but I know my God has me. If this is what He will have me to do, then I know I have a defender and protector.
Lastly, thank you Jen Wilkins, Eric Mason, and Nancy Leigh DeMoss...thank you for your obedience to Abba. He used you this weekend to correct, shape, encourage, and guide my little life.
