I gave a talk last night to a group of young ladies and their moms. Some of the girls in the group read my blog and thought it would be fun to hear from me. I have never done this kind of speaking before. Autobiographical. It was a very unpolished speech and I will always doubt myself but it is done and it was done with good intentions. So there ya go.
This group was so attentive and kind. Katie took to the girls her age and had such fun meeting and chatting with them. I think she would like to go to another meeting! That's cool. My little extrovert.
It was hard for me not to get to speak with more people one on one. I like that the best.
But I did meet a lovely mom and her daughter who is an artist and the daughter is working on starting a blog....and she happens to go to Hillsdale College (my alma mater). Pretty amazing, huh? I suggested she go home and listen to Sara Groves' Add to the Beauty. I just know it will inspire her to pin point her blog purpose.

Add to the beauty.
Love and encourage one another.
Lead a quiet life...
You have value because God values you.
Do you know that nothing in this life will ever matter, unless it is about loving God and loving
the people He has made.
And then I bragged about you guys.
I told them that you have encouraged me more than I have encouraged you.
It's a blessed place, this blog is.
I'm thankful for what God has done.
Encourage one another,
p.s. Hi Claire! I'm sorry we did not get to speak together. Katie recognized you...isn't that funny? It was so nice to see you last night.
