i am expecting great things!
today, we are leaving for tulsa, oklahoma. it is a nine hour trip in our van. that is a long time for a family of seven to travel together and remain friendly the whole time. but, we have made this trip many times before. we used to live there. aaron and i went to school in tulsa. we got married and had all of our babies there, except for jacob of course, who was just born last year. both, aaron and i were born in illinois, where we live now and have lived for 10 years. most of our family is still here. so, we frequently made trips each year back and forth from illinois to oklahoma. we know how long the trip is. we know that we will probably be settling some spats along the way. we know it is going to be so much fun! ok that was a little sarcastic. sorry. but, this trip is going to be different for us than the others. we are not just going back to visit family and friends. we are going to a conference together, called "Because of Jesus." i have been to it many times but the rest of my family has not. it is an awesome time of allowing God to reveal Himself and direct our hearts and minds back to Jesus and Jesus alone. the theme this year for the conference is "fearless." i am excited to be a part of this conference and learn what God is desiring for us to know more of to make us more confident in Him. i will be speaking in the afternoon session on Saturday and i am depending on Him to speak through me as I yield my mouth to His unction.
I am expecting great things! for myself and my whole family!
