The Baby Conference

July 8-10, 2010

Vision Forum Ministries put on an astounding conference called, The Baby Conference.

The conference was held in beautiful San Antonio, Texas.

I did a small post of our trip HERE.

Arthur and I were blessed to be able to attend the conference......

Along with Miss Ruth Ella who was 10 months old.

There was a wonderful Ladies Tea, where Michelle Duggar was the guest speaker. Since we don't have a television, I hadn't ever heard her before. It was a real treat to hear her share her heart, and of all that Christ was doing in their family.

Michelle Duggar was given the 2010 Mother of the Year Award that same night. Michelle with Jim Bob next to her accepted the award with such humility and grace.

We heard several panel discussions, and a host of speakers from topics ranging from miscarriage, adoption, and the fruitful womb. Vision Forum has a CD collection of the entire conference, you can check it our's well worth it!

Yikes, I think I sound like an infomercial, but it's truly to good not to want to share the information:)

We missed not having all our children with us, it felt odd to be a family of 3 for a week.

Time for Ruth Ella to stretch, and wave to tourist....

The keynotes were given in this room, and it filled up quickly.

The days were long for this little girl, but she did great.

Ruth Ella enjoyed our trip, and now it was time to go home.

By the God of your father who will help you,
And by the Almighty who will bless you
With blessings of heaven above,
Blessings of the deep that lies beneath,
Blessings of the breasts and of the womb.
Genesis 49:25

This week is .......

We are heading back to San Antonio, for The Reformation of Food & Family. One of the best parts is that our entire family is going to be attending! As a family we purchased our attendance for this event back in December, it is a trip we are all thrilled about. Our minds are eager to taken in multiple topics from various speakers, and return home with a wealth of new knowledge.

If you can't attend, no need to be disappointed. Many of the keynotes are going to be live streamed go HERE and check it out!

I love Michelle Duggar, too. We have both her books in the library as well as one of the DVDs. You can go online at to watch some of the episodes. You would enjoy them.

How exciting to get to meet and speak with Mrs. Duggar...we don't have television either but we purchase episodes on Amazon now and then and the show is always fun to see as well as an encouragement to me. Can't wait to hear about this years conference!! Hope you're having fun! And being blessed. Love reading your blog. I always leave with a smile :)
