His Proposal 2016

So excited to announce the next His Proposal Conference for young women!
This will be the 9th conference we have done since God started this ministry in 2009.
Over the last 6 years, I have watched the power of God and His Word change the lives of hundreds of girls. 
I have seen girls who feel hopeless leave with confident hope in their God and His love for them. 
I have seen girls who are living in sin, turn from sin and turn TOWARD GOD.
 I have watched God set girls free from addiction.
I have watched girls freed in order to walk in freedom.
I have watched those walking in darkness come into the light.

"I will say to the prisoners, ‘Come out in freedom,’
and to those in darkness, ‘Come into the light.’
Is 49

This year, the Lord is really laying on my heart to speak to the wounded girls.
And let them know that GOD CAN BIND UP THEIR WOUNDS.

"But I will heal your wounds"
 declares the Lord."
Jer 30:17

Not only does He heal our wounds but He REBUILDS on our ruins.

 "the city will be rebuilt on her ruins"
Jer 30:18

Girls, I have GOOD NEWS for you! God is able to heal your wounds and rebuild your life... even if it is ruined. 

God loves you and has a plan for your life.
He created your inmost being.
He knows when you sit and when you rise.
He knows your thoughts.
He wants to take upon Himself the pain that is yours to carry.
There is HOPE!

This conference only has 75 spots.
We are going to teach you what God has taught us.
We are going to share our lives with you and pray for you.
We are going to feed you and sing with you!
We are going to laugh and cry with you.
We are going to watch God transform you into a girl after His own heart.

Here is a stroll down memory lane...

 That's Mellette. She was at the first conference. A sweet college girl who drove from South Carolina to learn more about God. 
She decided to follow hard after Jesus and give Him everything. She began to teach other girls with us. Then God brought her a prince above and beyond anything she could have imagined. She is now pregnant with her 2nd baby and more radiant than ever. 
Her life was totally transformed by Jesus Christ.

Below is Chase Griffith.
He is a gifted worship leader who blows the roof off when he sings.
He is a loving husband and a father saved by grace... and filled with praise.

These are just pictures from over the years...

Next is Abby Arthur. 
She came to a conference 3 years ago and said God lit a fire under her tooshy.
She also began speaking with us and has committed her time to lighting fires under other girls tooshies. She speaks with power and conviction.
I joke with her that she got a double helping of the Spirit.

Below (beside me) is my friend Jennie. We have been friends for 20+ years. God snatched us both out of darkness and gave us a heart to know Him. Now we have 12 children and are still running our races side-by-side. I think she is our funniest teacher. You will LOVE Jennie.
She has experienced deep loss in her life yet is still one of the most joyful women you will ever meet.
All of us have experienced dark dark valleys. Yet God is holding our hands and pulling us closer to Him.

Then there is Kaysie (below-on the right) who does all the brain work.
She counsels, does media, and website stuff. She follows me around finding all the stuff I drop or lose. We are all very thankful for her brain and her wisdom.

There are many more amazing girls who have served over the years.
There are some new ones serving this year!

Amanda was a conference girl....

So was Brooke....

God has a love story for you. You need to desire the King of Kings more than an earthly prince.
He writes the best love stories.

But the most beautiful love story of all time will always be the story of a King Who sacrificed His One and Only Son to save you.

"For God SO LOVED the world that He sent His One and Only Son into the world so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life."
John 3:16

God loves you with an everlasting love.
There is no wound He cannot heal.
He can rebuild your life... even if it is ruined.
He is calling you by name!
We understand wounded hearts because we have all had them.
We understand deep pain.
We want to show you the way out of darkness.
God delivered us. He can deliver you too.

We hope you come spend the weekend with us.
Valentines Day can be depressing if you don't have plans!
Make plans to be with us!!
 It will be a safe place. A refuge.
I call this ministry "The Valley of Blessing" because it has blessed my life so much and those who come to it. It isn't because we are so great... BELIEVE ME! It is because of God! Girls who decide to trust and obey Him are just plain BLESSED.

"On the fourth day they gathered in the Valley of Blessing,which got its name that day because the people praised and thanked the Lord there. It is still called the Valley of Blessing today."
2 Chronicles 20:26

The cost is $40. That will include snacks Friday night. Breakfast, lunch, dinner on Saturday.
If you are coming from out of town, we can help you find a hotel.

**We are not putting the location on-line for safety purposes.
You will receive all the information with directions after you sign up.

“Arise, my love, my beautiful one,
and come away,"
Song of Solomon 2:10
