Conference Behind the Scenes
So there has been a lot of planning going on for the Missional Women Conference. So here's a little insider peek into how it's all coming together.
Most of the planning is happening in my office and with this group on Facebook. A handful of these people are local (Denver) but many are not so a Facebook group is just the easiest way to plan.
Here's a little glimpse of my work space (which really only I use about 50% of the time. The other time I grab my computer and sit on the couch during rest time for the kids) and my planning notebook.
And now that the conference is just a few weeks away all the decorations and goodies for the goodie bags are coming in and my house and garage look like this. Feels like Christmas around here and I just can't wait for everyone to get their great stuff!!
I hope you can make it. There is still time to register. So pop on over to the website and check it out. Here's the speakers, the schedule, the seminars and where you can register. And here are 10 reasons you should go.
If for some reason you just cant, check out the post talking abouthow to host or watch the Live Webcast.
And guess what!?! We added a group discount rate. If you get a group of 5 or more to go to the conference you tickets will be only $90!! That is a crazy deal!

Laura, it has not been a tough week for me, thank Jesus for that. Our family had it's share of tough weeks in the first part of February and I can testify God was faithful to bring us through and do miracles. Your senstivity to the fact that others may be having a tough week are a testimony to the Holy Spirit. May God bring much fruit from your conference!
