A few months ago, we were asked to speak at a conference for single adults in West Virginia.
Every time we do something like this, it turns out to be such an amazing experience, one that we wouldn’t trade despite the work, time, and emotional energy that goes into it.
So next weekend is the 3 day conference (Fri.-Sun.) at Jackson Mill. We’ll be speaking each day. And our hearts feel very full as we prepare. As always, I just hope to be able to say something that is helpful and applicable to someone’s life.
I found this photo that was taken in West Virginia. It’s so appropriate for what we’ll be talking about: Looking up. Anchoring yourself to light. My goodness, it still blows me away to think that I would ever be speaking at a conference. This is just crazy. I mean, it’s just a miracle to me to feel like I have anything to share at all.
By the way, anyone is invited to attend the conference (please let me know ASAP if you’d like to attend and I can let the organizers know and also send you more details!) The people formally invited are Mormon congregations from all over West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Virginia, and Maryland. But we hope that our message could be applicable to anyone.
Also, we decided to drive to the conference, just for a good old fashioned road trip… (very excited about that part!)
If anyone has recommendations for places to stop along the way (restaurants, sights, shops, etc.) – we would so love to hear. One detour we want to make is to Fallingwater, the home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright (in Pennsylvania). And I don’t know if we’ll have time, but I want to try and make it to one of the Fiestaware outlets in West Virginia for one of those vintage reproduction pitchers from 1936 (and maybe some mugs). It turns out Fiestaware is actually made in West Virginia!
Hope you all are having a great weekend!!
P.S. My apt. has been clean for like 4 days straight. This has never happened since I started the blog. I think it’s the infertility drugs. Or maybe the thoughts of possibly adding a little human to this household 🙂
