Love The Church Conference 2010

We're home!  We just got back from a 4 day conference up in Asheville, NC entitled Love The Church.  The National Center for Family Integrated Churches (NCFIC) hosts it each year.  Last year it was in Cincinnati, Ohio.   We are always both encouraged and challenged when we go to these conferences as a family.  It was a full three days of back to back sessions with the fourth day being church on Sunday.  During the conference we met up with old friends and made a lot of  new ones! 

We traveled up one day before the conference started,
so we walked through Black Mountain, NC.  It is a cute little town
with a bunch of quaint shops, including a general store!  While
walking down the sidewalk we found this plaque on a building! 
We all got a good laugh out of this one!

Two little friends of ours that went to the conferecne also!
And low and behold, the very last SNOWED!!!  Okay, for you Northerners, this is nothing!  But we only get snow once every 8 years, so this was big!  So of course, we had to have a snowball fight.

Yours truly getting one ready for Ethan!

Noah and I have the hill...

...however, Ethan is sneaking one up on me!

And of course we had to get Dad in on it!

Pretty soon, another family joined in! 
If you look close you can see the snowballs flying!
It was a very memorable time.  It's always nice to meet families that are like-minded!  My only regret is that I didn't get any pictures of the conference!  However, if you go to there are tons of pictures!  We thoroughly enjoyed each session that we went to and the keynote sermons were wonderful.  We always walk away from these conferences with a lot to think about.

We made it home by 7:30 Sunday night to find that it was....SNOWING!!! Can you belive it!  It only lasted for a couple of minutes and none of it stuck, but it was truly a gift from God!
