I'm Home from ACFW Conference

It's late and I'm beyond exhausted, but I'm home and I had the time of my life at the 2012 ACFW Conference. I plan on sharing much more on my Wednesday blog post, but I know many of you are anxious to hear how everything went.

All I can say is: I'm speechless...

God opened some amazing doors for me this past week and I met many, many online friends in person who are even more awesome than I had hoped. God has blessed me with an incredible support group and I will continue to thank Him for that gift every. single. day.

My hubby picked me up from the Minneapolis Airport and we had a two hour drive home - I talked THE ENTIRE TIME!

It really was a priceless experience.

I'll be back on Wednesday and give more details! I have much to share.


  1. Glad you're home - I'll bet hubby and kids were glad to have you back!

    Prayed for you this weekend - glad it went well. Looking forward to hearing your stories.


  2. Glad you are back safe and sound!!! Can't wait to hear all about it :)

  3. Those trips really can be so memorable. Savor it! :D

    Glad you had a blast!
