First of all, I am so sorry for the delay in posting this! Life has been a little bit of a whirlwind lately, and I really wanted to be able to gather my thoughts before I shared this incredible trip with you.
At the end of January I was so very fortunate to have the opportunity to attend The Association of Junior League’s International Winter Leadership Conference (say that three times fast) in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was the most amazing weekend of leadership training and learning and left me more excited than ever for the next two years of serving my league! I got so many valuable ideas that I can’t wait to share with my league ladies and really saw the incredible impact that a dedicated group of women can make in their community, state, nation, and world!
I think the most incredible part of the trip was realizing that this was exactly where I was supposed to be. This journey of mine has been so covered in prayer, not only by me but by some phenomenal women in my life. And when you pray about something so much, and then you see it all come together and see the Lord’s purpose at work… well it’s a pretty special feeling and it has left me completely humbled more than once (and probably will many more times).
I hope these personal pictures give you a sneak peek into my fun trip! I can’t wait to share more with you (and my league) as the year unfolds!
