Women's Leadership Conference!

Well I'm back from the conference! What a time I had! I just wish that someone else could've gone with me so I could share it with someone! Anyway if you've never heard Kay Arthur speak or done one of her studies I so recommend her. Last night she spoke for almost 2 hours! If it weren't for the fact it was after my bedtime I would have wanted her to go on and on! She asked us "What do we want our Legacy to be?" She used examples of Joshua being Moses Legacy; David being Samuels Legacy; Solomon Davids, etc.... Who are we influencing and for what? It is of the utmost importants that we teach THE WORD OF GOD; THE WORD OF TRUTH; THE PRECIOUS TREASURE WHICH IS SCRIPTURE!!! She spoke of the biblical illitericy in American churches today! Isn't that sad! How many of us who grew up in the church know scripture, and how many of us want to?!!! This has so lite another fire under me to not only study the scriptures for myself, but to make sure that our children know it!

Today we did a quick inductive study of 1 Timothy. Boy is that book rich!
The breakout sessions I went to were awesome too! I have learned much, and am so excited to put it into practice! In one we study the leadership qualities of Nehemiah! Now I can't wait to get into that book too!

It was a great 1 1/4 days! I am so glad I went! I want to know: WHAT DO YOU WANT YOUR LEGACY TO BE?

The next time I post it will be my 100th post, can you believe it? I can't! I have a list of 100 things about me to post, I just don't know whether I will do it in 1 or 2 post. I seem to get wordy!

Aren't you blessed! I would love to hear Kay in person. I have watched her quite a bit on TV and listened to her on the radio. I did a study at church on James before I had kids. I memorized the first three chapters at the time. I never thought I could do something like that. Don't think I could say it now, but I KNOW it. Wish I could've gone with you. Thanks for visiting. I like it over here at your place.

My goodness, I just think Kay Arthur is wonderful. I got to see her last March here in California. I wish I had heard her speak on 'our Legacy'...that is such a tender subject, being a mother of growing children.

This post encouraged me this morning Kim. This year is the first year that I have started memorizing scripture with our children before school. We are on our fourth scripture and I pray it continues. You have just confirmed that it is something I need to continue.

Blessings, Joanne
