We just returned from our GOG conference in Jackson, Ms. The United Methodist Church and it's volunteers were super great, I can't wait to go back. Jamie Ross, thank you for your love of teenage girls and allowing us to be at your wonderful church to share the Beautiful Truth!!
All of our kids were with us this weekend and TOTALLY enjoyed Chris August and Group 1 Crew!!! Darby was blown away with the cool dancing and how beautiful Blanca is when she sings! I couldn't agree with her more. As a parent, I want my daughter to look up to Godly role models and our conference is full of them. People like Blanca (from Group 1Crew) share their testimony of how a relationship with God changed their perspective on how they see themselves.
If you know a teenage girl, we would LOVE for them to come and be a part of The Beautiful Truth! Check us out to see if we are near you at www.Girlsofgrace.com.
Here is a picture of 3 beautiful girls!! Caroline, Blanca and Darby Mae
We are home for a few more days and then we head back out to Charlotte, N.C. for another GOG event! Come see us!!!!
We all love vacation. But it sometimes ends up feeling more like work, doesn't it?
Here's the solution for that in this week's He Mail: Avoiding stress when traveling. Shelley, Leigh, and Denise all share some insight on their experiences with traveling, giving great tips for avoiding major stress factors. Take a listen, then add your own thoughts!
Today I dropped Darby off at school for her first day of 4th grade...YIKES!!!! I may share different feelings from most parents but Darby is more than ready to go back to school and I was sharing the same feeling. Darby has had a tremendous summer of theme parks (one more on Sunday in Hot Springs, Ark.), a trip to the beach, tons of activities like skating, swimming and so many play dates I've lost count... So SHE is ready for some structure, earlier bedtimes and a new basketball season.
We are grateful for a summer of safety, fun, fellowship and extraordinary memories!!! I pray for all of our children today as they begin a new chapter this school year, whatever their age may be.
Darby was so excited to see her 4th grade teacher - Mrs. Cortez. Can you tell by that face how happy Darby is? So sweet!!!!
Darby was over me taking pictures but one day she will look back and be so glad I did.
Alright, I will stop my nonsense...
Please send pics of your kids to our Facebook page. We love staying connected with all of you - we are in this together!!!
Also, pray for us this weekend, we are doing our 2nd GOG conference of 2012 - The Beautiful Truth in Jackson, MS on Saturday. I can't express how fantastic these events have become. I am honored to learn from our tremendous speakers as well as joining in on beautiful Worship with Meredith Andrews and so much more!!! Check out Girlsofgrace.com for a location near you!!! An event that could change your daughters life!
Hug all of your kids today if you can and remind them how much you LOVE them!!!! We can never say it enough!!
The age old battle: Men vs. Women.
New research puts women ahead in IQ tests now - and boy, do the girls have a field day with that! Listen to them discuss these new findings and what could be the explanation for opposite results in the past. Be sure to share your opinions with us -- whether you agree or not!
