Pre-Summit Event for Adoption Moms…

I just wanted to take a moment to encourage you if you are considering coming to the Summit in Louisville, KY on May 11-13th–to consider coming a bit early on the 11th and joining other moms with a heart for adoption for a time of rest, refreshment and encouragement…

While I was hoping to be able to help with this event–as I prayed the Lord redirected me and because I’ll be leaving my babies for 12 days in July to go to Zambia with Wiphan Care–AND I just recently traveled to Denver for Empowered to Connect–I just couldn’t leave my littles again…just yet. It was really, really, really hard to say no to this one…but I was ever so thankful for my DEAR friend Shelly Owens who said YES when we asked if she would be a part of this event!!! I am so thankful for her and what the Lord will speak through her and the other adoption moms sharing during this time. And I’m really excited for all the moms who will come and connect with one another!!!

Now, we need a little help spreading the word about this event! EVEN if you aren’t going–will you consider sharing this on your blog and/or facebook??? IF SO…comment below and when you comment you’ll be prompted to leave your email address. No worries–your email will not be published below–BUT I’ll send you the jpeg for you to upload and share on facebook and/or your blog! We JUST got in a new fun color of the “Love Makes a Family” t-shirt…so every person who shares this will be entered to win a lady’s AND men’s shirt for you AND your honey!!! Thank you for helping spread the word…and you just NEVER know what the Lord will do in the hearts and lives of moms who need this special time of retreat.

Much love to you all…those of you patiently waiting of Post 5…it’s coming this weekend when I finally have a chance to sit down and share another amazing year in our family’s life! Hope you all experience the sweetness and glory of Jesus this weekend as you celebrate His resurrections!!! This weekend is to be more glorious and more celebrated than even Christmas!!! May it be a sweet one reflecting on His power, His glory, His goodness…and the new life He has given each of us in Him!!!

I’ll spread the word–and so wish I could make it. We’re hoping to attend some conferences in the fall to promote The Sparrow Fund. How do I find out about which ones are happening next year? Ideas? I’ll post the jpg of this event on the forum — I know there has been some talk about this conference there. Hope it helps!

I posted about it on my blog! I will be there for the rest of the conference, but the flights from here didnt get in until later. I am so excited to see how God works and shows me things, and I hope I get to meet Shelly!

I would love to facebook and blog about this…thanks for sending the jpeg! I just had Maridel over on Friday to catch up but didn’t realize she was speaking at this. So wish I could go but feel so blessed that I was able to attend Created for Care. Still running on the overflow from your amazing retreat! Thank you to you and your team!!!! Jenny

I don’t know if any of my fb friends are going but I’d love to share about it to be entered into the giveaway. Is that horrible? 🙂
