Upcoming Girls Conferences in Iowa!

Many of you are already familiar with an awesome girl's ministry called Bright Lights,
but if you aren't -- hop on over to their website and read more about it!
I have been insanely blessed to be a part of Sarah Mally's Bright Lights group, and lead my own,
and gain so much through their influence in my life.
And having the opportunity to travel and serve on staff with them and do conferences
across the country over the last 5 years has been seriously amazing.
It's hard to explain the joy, fellowship, stretching times, answered prayer and growth there is
when you work with other people in ministry..there is nothing like those friendships!!
Anyways, Bright Lights is hosting two conferences in July in Iowa this summer (woot!!)
and you all should come!
All the info for them is below, with links to register and some video clips from the conferences..
and if you are thinking about coming you can save a few dollars by registering by June 24th (tomorrow)!
You can also register online right up until the conferences, and at the door --
so keep that in mind. :)
Personally I have been to countless conferences, and yet I leave encouraged and convicted every. single. time.
So I know that you all will be too!
Prayerfully consider attending, and even if you can't please help spread the word,
and send this blog post link to anyone you know in the Iowa/Illinois/Minnesota/Wisconsin/Missouri/Nebraska area
if you think they would be interested!! :)

The material is discreet and appropriate for twelve year olds, yet relevant to all ages. Includes testimonies from young ladies who serve as Bright Lights staff, chalk drawings, and harp music.
