Relevant '11 Here I Come!

The Relevant Conference: I'm Going!

I'm really, really going!

Many of my blog friends were very aware that I desperately wanted to go to Relevant again this year, but our family just couldn't swing it financially.  I left it in God's hands, different friends were praying with me, and I was resolved that I would not be able to attend.

Out of the blue last week a friend of mine contacted me on twitter and said that she had won a ticket but was not going to be able to go.  She offered me her ticket......FREE!  I was blown away by her generosity, knowing that not being able to attend was a big disappointment to her too.

But finding a ticket was only part of the equation.  Since our family already knew this was out of our reach financially, we knew to make this happen I needed a sponsor for my travel expenses.  Have you met my sponsor?!!



I am absolutely thrilled to be partnering with Family Matters! You may remember this summer I did a series on the book "Why Christian Kids Rebel".  This was a great book written by Dr. Tim Kimmel of Family Matters.  They have a library stocked with awesome titles and amazing family helps.  I am honored to be working with them for the coming months to bring you more great resources for your family!

But let me be very clear here......GOD gets all the glory!!  I left this trip in HIS hands -- He has blessed me with a resounding "yes" and has provided the way.  Hallelujah Lord Jesus!

I can't wait to see all my bloggy friends!
