BUSY SATURDAY!

On Saturday, our church hosted a Young Woman's Purity Conference. We had four ladies (and one teenager) share their testimonies and at one point they had a panel of four, young, godly boys/young men from our church give answer questions that any of the girls had. It was a blessing to hear these young guys share their views in terms of girls and relationships from a Christian boys perspective. I tell ya..these boys have wisdom beyond their young years! There were 30+ girls who got saved and many who made a commitment to purity. I'm so glad I was able to go with my daughter and for her to really understand the importance of being pure not only in a physical sense, but also staying pure in heart!!! Purity is not only skin deep, but heart deep as well!

Me and my friend Gina. Love her! She's sooo sweet!

During the conference, one of my friends was planning her husbands surprise 40th birthday party. Her husband was helping at church, so she was able to do everything while he was gone. It worked out perfectly because he had no idea what was going on! Around 9'ish, we decided to put on some music and dance!! They had moved the couch out of the living room that morning, so after clearing out the tables, we had a "dance floor!" We were grooving to salsa, meringue, and 70's and 80's jams! The kids were even getting into it too! It's so awesome to have our families be able to do stuff like this, and have nice, clean fun!!! So, about 1 AM'ish, we called it a night!! Oh my gosh..we were sooooo tired in the morning because we had to get up for church!! LOL, I slept all afternoon when we got home!

My husband and I gave a purity talk (he did the boys and I to the girls) and it was just so awesome to be able to speak with these young kids.

The party looks like fun. Our family loves having get togethers with other families.
