Nervous and excited I made my way to Concord Thursday morning for the first day of the SheSpeaks Conference. A bit uncomfortable, but trying to look confident, I finally find where I'm supposed to be and go straight to the restroom to realize I walked across the whole parking lot, through a hotel, down a long hallway in my new dress with the pockets hanging out 🤦🏼♀️ ugh!!! Brooke! Why do you do these things??
Well, anyways, I wasn't going to let that ruin my day! So off I go to register and make new friends. The first sweet lady I met had an incredible testimony of how her husband got shot at a rest area on Thanksgiving Day, he survived but is paralyzed from the waste down. They both still love the Lord, serve Him faithfully and praise Him for His goodness. Another lady shared with me that her husband passed away after coming home from a mission trip; she's a beautiful young lady who is still healing but was ready to use her testimony to point others to her faithful Father. This is just two of the many stories I heard over the following 3 days.
I said all this to say that my favorite part of this past weekend was undoubtedly the wonderful people I met.
There are many amazing people out there with beautiful testimonies of how God has faithfully been there for them, through tragedies I can't comprehend, through loneliness, brokenness and pain, these women stand boldly and say that they have a story to tell, and it's not a story about themselves but about Someone greater, stronger, Who has carried them through some of the worst days of their lives. The theme of their lives:
HE IS FAITHFUL
He never changes. So, today I remind you...What the enemy meant to destroy you with will become your greatest testimony of His goodness as He walks with you through it.
“Do you see what this means—all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we’d better get on with it. Strip down, start running—and never quit!" Hebrews 12 MSG
I can't wait to share more with you all about this past weekend 💜
Thanks so much for taking the time to read my post 😘
