Remember those great essays from grade three and four: “What I did on my Summer Vacation”…well, I thought I’d share a bit from my adventurous summer. First there was driving my daughter to bball practice every day for five weeks, then the in-laws came for a brief visit, then more bball, then my youngest daughter had a soccer tournament in Portland–and her team won! Then my sister in-law came to visit with her wonderful family. During that time my husband and I took off to meet Jack Levison and Priscilla Pope-Levison for dinner (both of them are speakers at our up-coming MotherHeart conference on “Biblical Evidence for the Femininity of the Holy Spirit.” Go to www.motherheartconference.com to check it out OR to purchase a ticket.
Check out Jack’s book here Fresh Air: The Holy Spirit for an Inspired Life.)
We met at a French restaurant and had a wonderful time yapping up a storm. After that I spent a week writing a paper on the topic “the family of God” (I know… sounds fascinating), then my family and I left for Canada where I visited my dad and his wife Cheryl. I also ran up to Saskatoon, the last city I lived in, to meet with Pastor Gary about the up-coming MotherHeart conference (he is also a speaker and he, by the way, called the conference “a historical event.”) I then spoke to my wonderful editor about starting up our own publishing house (more on that later), then I and my family got in our mini-van (with my dad in tow) and returned home where we are now watching movies (we watch a lot of movies!) By the way, my dad started a blog of his own (and his dog Tipper); together they are reviewing movies…meet my dad here–Mickey’s Movie Reviews.
Awe summer! How I love thee! But seriously, I really need to get some writing done.
