Anna and I went to a conference for girls ages 8-14 this week (and their parents.) It was a "Strong in the Lord" Conference and we had a great time being together and being challenged and encouraged by the Mally family and lots of other lovely young ladies. The purpose was to encourage young girls to be bright lights for the Lord and commit their youth to Him. The woman who founded the Bright Lights ministry, Sarah Mally, is a beautiful woman who exhibits shining for Him. She did a great job sharing stories and exhorting the girls, and they also incorporated lots of skits, testimonies, music, and even using chalk art to challenge us. The girls also spent time in small groups while the parents had their own sessions.
May Anna (and all our children and yours!) be a bright light for the Lord, shining in the midst of a dark and crooked generation!
