San Antonio!

I am home from an awesome time in San Antonio where I attended the Beth Moore Conference with dear friends. When I have more time I will post about the awesome talk on Psalm 16 and what God is teaching me. But for now, here's some fun photos of when I won a door prize for having the most kids and got to hug Beth Moore. Love her!

Looks like you guys had an incredible week-end! I want to hear all you learned. I hope you don't mind I put a link on my blog to yours. Let me know if you do. Ran into your family at the pool and will have to post the picture you husband got of me going down the slide! Just the thought makes me laugh. Again, I can't wait to hear what you have learned!

Wendy,
Just wanted to come by and see your family. I did not get a chance to meet you at the fiesta, but maybe another time. I am so glad you got to win that prize and hug Beth's neck! Eleven kids! From the look of all your pictures and stories, you are doing such a great job! Hope you have a great week!

Wendy, I enjoyed spending the evening with you and your family. I did not get to chat with you in SA, but I did love the pink pj's and look forward to someday chatting. I love you and your husband's ministry, family style. We have two and are in the process of adopting one...thanks for sharing your life.

Wendy, We didn't get a chance to meet this weekend at the Siesta Fiesta, I have seen you from a-far! You looked like a ton of fun and I was encouraged and shocked to hear that you had 11 kiddos. You look soo young - there is no way you have so many kids, but i hop on your page and there is your beautiful family! I would LOVE to sit down with you over coffee & hear HOW YOU DO IT! Mom to Mom secret confessions on raising kids, cause with 11 you have some tricks up your sleeve!
( I am a first time mom and I feel so inadequate sometimes)

I cant wait to get to know you over blog more! Hope to hear from you soon.

There isn't anything I love more on God's green earth than children. I love your family. God's blessings are overflowing over you and all who get to see this miracle. I have six children myself and am 33. We haven't ever adopted but I long to. You inspire me. Great music, too.

Wendy,
I was so glad I got to meet you and your friends and sit near you all. It was all awesome and I'll never forget it.
I'm also so glad you won for having the most kids. How cool to get to hug Beth's neck!
Glad y'all made it home safe and sound.
Love,
Valerie

Wendy,

This an awesome BLOG! I will be bookmarking as another blog that I need to keep up with. Your children are so precious. You are doing an awesome job as a mom.

I was unable to attend Siesta Fiesta but have enjoyed reading all about it. We hosted the LP Simulcast at our church in August. Beth & her family are such an encouragment for all of us to spread God's word.

Thanks for sharing your blog with us!

okay i did not go to the SA conference but blog surfing to hear about how the conf went and came across your page! how awesome your family is!! i am a product of adoption myself and we are in the process of becoming a caring home. slow process. long process. i really believe that the Lord is leading us to be foster parents on day. not sure of the timing though! what a tremendous responsibility you have with a tremendous blessing attached!
