Special Weekend Coverage: The Pure In Heart Conference

Morning, girls! Just a quick note to let you know I’m heading out the door to join 1,200 moms and tween daughters in Davenport, Iowa for tomorrow’s Revive Our Hearts’ Pure In Heart Conference. (In case you have no idea what I’m talking about, a “tween” is a 7-12 year old.)

This is the kind of thing I wish had existed when I was a tween. If I had grasped the beauty of God’s plan for purity, I would have been saved so much heartache resulting from buying into the world’s lies. This is the goal of this conference: to plant seeds of purity in the lives of the younger generation, before the world feeds them quite the opposite message!

Tune into the blog this weekend for LIVE reports from this conference. And please pray that this would be a life-changing weekend in the lives of each mom and daughter attending. Because, after all, the pure in heart will see God (Matthew 5:8), and nothing else could satisfy them more completely!
