Bright Lights Conference

Our blog has again been silent for a week -- but not due to lack of activity! Our week was very full as we girls spent most of last week in Omaha, helping to serve with the Bright Lights Conference. What a BLESSING!

If you ever get the chance to attend one of these Conferences, I'd greatly encourage you to do so. Designed for young ladies and their parents, it's a seminar filled with godly teaching, encouragement, hillarious skits, heartfelt discussion times and rich fellowship. We came away challenged to not merely seek the 'good' things for our lives -- but to truly live God's best in every area of life!

It was exciting to see families travel from surrounding states to attend the Conference, and we continue to pray for the seeds planted and decisions made in the hearts of these 400+ young ladies.

The ministry of music was a personal blessing to me -- so many rich, encouraging songs!

Bethany and Elizabeth's disscussion group.
It was exciting to hear testimonies of how the Lord used the small group time as the girls were able to talk through many Biblical truths regarding Spiritual disciplines and important relationship principles. It was also a great blessing to have prayer time together!

It was an honor for we girls to share a few songs during the Conferences.

"...for it is God who works in you both to will and to do
for His good pleasure.
Do all things without complaining and disputing,
that you may become blameless and harmless,
children of God without fault
in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation,
among whom you shine as lights in the world."
Phil 2:13 -15

Looks like ya'll had fun. And what a nice gift to be able to fellowship with other girls that love the Lord.
God Bless!

I had the opportunity to help at a Bright Lights conference last summer, and was so encouraged by the fellowship there! The conference challenged my faith and made me want to strive harder to glorify the Lord. I would highly recommend these conferences to anyone who has not yet been to them!

I went to a Bright Lights conference last year when it was in Bemidji, MN. The Mally family is lovely. I'm glad you had a good time!

The Mallys are a great, godly family!

We enjoyed one of their "Bright Lights" conferences down here in Oklahoma City a few years ago.

They actually stayed with us! We had 25 or 30 people staying in our guest and livingroom! Needless to say, it was a lot of fun!

Sarah's Courtship book IS very good, and their "Making brothers and sisters best friends" book.

Did you and Ruth have a discussion group too? Did Hannah and Susanna go as well?
