So, do you ever want to eat your cheesecake with ice cream, chocolate sauce, whipped cream and almonds ALONE, but your big kids keep coming in- even though it is 10 pm at night!! Do these kids ever go to bed?? It’s almost like when they were infants and we held, rocked, nursed, walked around…held, rocked, nursed, walked around…and held, rocked, nursed and walked around AGAIN, only to have them still wake up when we placed them in their crib for bed. Apparently, I need more than just ice cream…I need a weekend away, with Jesus.
So I did just that! Raising Generations Today THRIVE Conference 2017 was one of the best ever. Over 300 precious, godly, amazing women gathering in worship in Painted Post, NY to celebrate THRIVING as women, mothers, employees, daughters, aunts, cooks, teachers, business women, friends, and many, many more things. We CAN do it all- in Christ! HE is our source. Jennifer Kindle said “Create Space for the Holy Spirit!” Listen up, ladies, it’s time to thrive in Christ! We were made to thrive, and in order to do that we need to make time for God. These busy schedules seem to crowd out our time with the Lord, but we CANNOT allow it. Setting aside some breathing space for the Holy Spirit is critical to our survival as moms and daughters in Christ. Time with Him is even more precious than time with our little, needy, whiny ones. As we move into the “most wonderful time of the year,” strive to thrive in time set aside with your best friend, Jesus!!!
