Lesson #2 from Summit

I have learned one of the main reasons for summits, conferences, events, and all the other things we do SURROUNDING the orphans crisis is for people to get together and NOT FEEL OUT OF PLACE in our passion for serving the LORD ... It is a time to refresh and renew ... It is a moment in time where we can share our heart fully about how GOD has called us and not feel rejected, misunderstood, alienated, or alone ... One thing I do love about the conferences is that we are challenged in the word and reminded that GOD'S GOT THIS !!! He doesn't need us, but calls us to serve HIM because it changes us on the inside ... It gives us a glimpse into his LOVE for us and allows us to go deeper ...

As I share my life and the 147 mission at a conference it opens so many doors for me into other people's life ... IT ENCOURAGES ME and gives me that boost I need to fight some more !!!

You know how sometimes you can feel like the 7 headed monster when you walk into church, Target, school, the grocery store, or just the ball park ??? Well at the ORPHAN SUMMIT WE ALL HAVE 7 HEADS !!! and it feels good ...

Thank You for sharing this post. I needed to read/hear it. Now that we are starting our third adoption, and having to fund raise most of it, we are experiencing more negativity and opions then ever, and this just warms my heart to remember we aren't alone and to keep on trucking along!
Love you guys!

It is so great to have this blog and others and be connected to other folks that are just like us. Just knowing there are families out there that are crazy like ours gives me strength and encouragement!!
