Irvine, CA MomHeart Conference, What I learned

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.
