I have no idea how the Clarkson’s do 3-4 conferences each year and to think they have been doing these conferences for over 15 years. Wow! I have a greater appreciation for this life giving ministry especially as I have begun to serve alongside them.
Seriously I am still recovering from the Irvine, CA MomHeart Conference. It’s a lot of work pulling off a conference for 600+ women. There will always be hiccups; registrations not found, temperature to hot/cold, issues with sounds, etc… I learned to have grace knowing that so much thought and pray goes into each event.
California was an incredibly fun event. There were over 600 registered and thankfully I can say registration went smoothly other than my brain not being able to do simple math because of exhaustion. I learned to laugh at myself as I’m not perfect.
I love the energy of women who come to these conference to be filled and I smile each time I think back to some of the sweet encounters I had praying and encouraging discouraged moms. I learned that we all want to be known, a simple smile, hug, or sitting to pray with someone makes a huge difference.
I was blessed to work with such a great group of gals who pour so selflessly into this ministry. I learned that doing fun things with those you work with makes for deeper and more meaningful relationships.
I posted more photos I took on Facebook
I’m looking forward to the upcoming Irving, TX conference next weekend. Hopefully by then I will be fully rested 😉 and ready to learn more.
