116I1839 In Ohio we did the same schedule conference as Virginia. Strong in the Lord Conference, free day, Radiant Purity Conference. It was a great week! Everyone had their “tired moments” but the Lord’s grace is always sufficient and we were all excited to see how open and responsive the girls were to the lessons we were teaching.





God brought together an incredible group of leaders who persevered though all the early mornings, new pressures and responsibilities, long hours on the road, and being with people day-in and day-out. They kept serving sacrificially and cheerfully, and were a great example to me of Christ’s character. Our times of sharing from the Word and praying together were a highlight for everyone. Even though many hadn’t known each other previously, there was a special fellowship and unity in the group. True fellowship takes place when you are serving the Lord, side-by-side, and encouraging each other even when the going gets rough.

IMG_4974My brother Stephen is a very alert person. Always aware of his surroundings, he notices details other people don’t notice. He stays on top of all the “behind the scenes” technical elements of running the conferences. Projectors, lapel mics, speakers, sound mixer, lights, video equipment, computers, printers, scanners, you name it… Stephen seems to instinctively know how everything works and goes the extra mile to pursue excellence.

And by the way, thank you to those of you who were praying for the video! We haven’t viewed it yet, but we think we were able to get some good footage.

  1. Grace-

    Great job on the conference posts… I know I’m not the only one who loves all the pictures!! 😉 Makes me miss everyone more though. So glad God worked it out for me to be a part of the team.

    Much love,


  2. Hurray! No embarrassing pictures! Just cute ones. 🙂 Thanks for posting them, Grace. You got a lot of great shots that I didn’t.

  3. Sounds like it was such an enjoyable time!
    The conferences are such a blessing to many daughters and mothers!

    Have a nice day, delighting in the Lord!

  4. Dear Mally Family– I have never been to a conference like this one! It was an amazing answer to prayer. I want to thank you for serving Jesus so faithfully. I know your Strong in the Lord and Radiant Purity conference had a big impact on my two daughters. Sarah’s teaching from the Word also changed my heart and I learned things that I have never heard before. I have been in church since I was 5 years old… that is 30 years, why is this beautiful Godly message about feminity and modesty not being preached? I realize that some churches are, but I feel I have really missed out. My duaghters and I took a challenge this week to wear skirts for 7 days. So far we are on day six and enjoying it alot! Thank you Sarah and thank you Mally family!!!

  5. Awww, I like the pic of you all singing on your day off. I love doing that kind of thing with girls like that…
