On Thursday, in between conferences, we had a great time hiking in Grayson Highlands State Park.
I can’t tell you how refreshing it was to be out there in the woods!
God blessed us with a beautiful breezy day and I sort of felt like I was walking inside a beautiful painting. One of the highlights of the day was just spending more time with the others in our group. We don’t always have much time to talk while running the conferences.
It was so beautiful Lauren just couldn’t quit hiking –even after her shoes wore out!
It was fun to get acquainted with the friendly free-range ponies in the park. They were so cute.
After we were all tired and hungry, we enjoyed a great lasagna dinner out on the Stam’s back deck. The Stams are the family who hosted both the Strong in the Lord Conference and the Radiant Purity Conference (which I’m going to post about next) in Bristol. They have a wonderful family and we so appreciate all the sacrifices they’ve made to bring these conferences here!
