Our Weekend of Love and Learning

This past weekend we had the wonderful opportunity to attend the Empowered to Connect conference in Denver. If you EVER have the opportunity to hear Dr. Purvis speak... do it! Her talks are not only helpful for adoptive parents, but all families. I wish that all of my friends and family could hear what we did.

There was so much hope in what she shared. Any child from a hard place can heal. I studied child development and behavioral science in college; it was so amazing to see the scientific facts that reflected God's design. There are so many things I could say about the conference but I will focus on these:
*We were so encouraged and learned so much
*GO if you get a chance
After the conference we had a nice mini vacation. It is funny how just being out of the house and away from distractions can be such a blessing. I enjoyed coffee, reading, coffee, journaling, coffee, discussion with Dave, coffee, and strolling through beautiful downtown Denver with coffee.
