One of our annual highlights is going to the Resolved Conference in Palm Springs. Jesse and I take turns listening to the messages while the other is with the kids.
This is such a great venue- plenty of room.
Madison loved the music. At one point, she turned to me and said, "Mommy this music is so good I have goose bumps!" We have the blessing of hearing John and Lisa Martin lead worship every Sunday, but at Resolved they fill the band out a bit more. I love being led to the throne of God with their music- it's passionate and Gospel-centered. Enfield has produced several wonderful CD's. If you haven't gotten them yet, here's where you can find out about them.
Saturday night they had a Q&A panel with all the speakers...
Rick Holland, CJ Mahaney, John MacArthur, Al Mohler, and Steve Lawson.
It was a good time of getting to know them a bit more personally and a chance to just hear what's on their hearts.
The preaching was of course amazing. As a side note, Jesse has begun a blog with several of his pastor friends that is quite thought provoking. You can find his review of the messages there. Check The Cripplegate out!!
I also enjoyed time spent with my friend Michelle and her two adorable boys. We went swimming with the 4 kids one morning. Michelle and I were blessed by our husbands who watched the kids so we could go to one of the sessions together.
We stayed in the best location possible! It was a little rental condo that backed right up to the conference center. Last year's hotel room was a further walk than this condo to the conference. Plus, we had our own kitchen where we cooked. Each time we went swimming, we were the only ones there!
Both girls are little fish.
We got in a little family time before we left :)
