DG & Sweet Cards

The Desiring God National Conference is one of our absolute favorite times of the year and is filled with special memories....mostly it brings thoughts of our former small groups, of Dan and Tara and Mark and Meggy and Alex and Christie, of pumpkin spice lattes,  bagels, crisp-sunny fall days, of Megan getting to feel Caleb kick inside my belly to the worship songs, of last minute lunch plans with friends we haven't seen in a long time, of finding out Megan was pregnant with baby Jude, of endless piles of books to oogle over in the book store and very best of all, glorious worship times surrounded by friends and amazing teaching, encouraging our hearts.  It never fails to be so good.

This year, however, we are hundreds of miles away, half way around the world and missing one of our favorite events.  We decided to make it a special time with the two of us, a week of listening to the recordings online post-conference, complete with our own popcorn snacks, hot chocolates and tea, snuggled under blankets in the cool evenings after Caleb is tucked away in bed.

Last night was our first "conference date" to listen to Louie Giglio speak on the "Global Galactic God Who Gives the Great Commission."  I found this note tucked away before we began our series:

"on a rainy day, my relationship with you is the sunshine I need.  Love, your thankful Husband"

The first talk we listened to last night was absolutely phenomenal.

If you were not able to attend the conference and haven't already listened to it, I can not recommend it enough.  It was so good.  You won't regret the hour you spend listening. 

 Check it out!
