Beth & I
I wanted to share a neat story that happened this week....
It was last week when I saw an advertisement on Facebook for a short parenting conference coming up at a local church. I was instantly intrigued, I headed over to the website to get more info. It looked great, but then I saw it wasn't free, bummer! I'm all about the free, but in addition to that, I knew it would be tricky to find & pay for a sitter, and on top of that use a "date night" to go to a parenting seminar. That was not gonna fly. Ha ha! I casually read about it to my husband, but we both decided, maybe not this time.
So I kinda forgot about it. This past Monday my dear friend, Beth texted me and said "Any chance you want to go to a Kevin Lehman parenting seminar with me tonight at 7? I have a free ticket if you want to come!" Get. Out. Of. Here. It was the very conference I wanted to go to!! My husband of course said "Go, enjoy yourself!" And so I got to go, catch up with my friend and learn some great tips & fresh ideas.
I asked her that night why she asked me, and she said "Well, I just prayed and asked God who I should ask & He immediately brought AMBER to my mind." God is so good. Only he knew I wanted to go, and only He spoke that to Beth. I just love Him. I'm so thankful for his grace, that I don't deserve & yet he pours it out any way. I even love how Beth was so sensitive to His voice & followed through with asking me. I want to be more in tune with those soft whispers. I want to ask Him more "What should I do? Who should I ask? Where should I go?" I hope to include God more in the everyday, to just walk with Him through everything.
I know it was something little, but it was very special to me. So, thank you Bethy for inviting me & for a great night!!
Just after the session there was no line (until we lined up then it was out the door!) to meet the speaker, so we got a chance to snag this shot, thank him for sharing and ask a few questions, very nice night!
