The Annual Journey of The Heart Conference was a wonderful event. There were so many wonderful speakers, break out workshops, crafts and worship. From learning how to nourish our body during our grief with healing foods, to helping the siblings of our children who have gone to heaven grieve, to learning to help our marriage withstand the grief process, there were many learning opportunities for all. The strength, healing and presence of The Holy Spirit that surrounded everyone and everything at the conference was truly amazing. BJ and Doug Jensen’s Love in Motion Choir was there signing amazing songs. By the time they were finished, everyone was so uplifted. I am so thankful and grateful for this yearly opportunity to be together in one place, with so many women who are learning to how to travel this journey we are all on. All of the strength contained in that one room, when we are all together, truly touches and speaks to me. For all of you have not made it to the Annual Conference, and to those of you who have, PLEASE make it a priority to go next year. I promise you, you will not leave the conference the same person you were when you arrived at the conference.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank BJ Jensen (and Doug), Linda Stirling, Janette Henning, Cheryl Williams and all the rest of the conference committee who worked so hard on this amazing conference. And just like The Lord, he provided us with beautiful weather. Our very own Maria Roser and Diane Eisendrath spoke at the conference and were awesome. You both nailed it ladies, and I am so thankful for your words, and proud of your courage. Thank you again BJ, Linda and the remaining committee, you did a wonderful job, and lives were changed as a result of your efforts.
