Passing the Mantle Conference was beyond amazing! It seriously gets better every year! God did some awesome things in that conference and so thankful for the sweet presence of God that flowed in that place every night. There are simply no words to describe how amazing it was. I was also reminded how very blessed we are to have such an amazing Pastor! Sometimes we take it for granted that we have such a loving, kind hearted, compassionate, and gentle Pastor who LOVES the word of God and who LOVES the people of TLC! The Life Church is so BLESSED!!! Thank You Pastor and Sis Gleason for everything you do for TLC! We are so thankful for you!
On a side note...I had a wonderful time with friends!!! Stephanie and Jo came down with a group from Minnesota! Had a blast with them!! So glad yall got to come down to PTM!!
They had never had Kansas City BBQ before! AHHH!!! Everyone HAS to have a little KC BBQ in their lives....so we just HAD to let them get a "fix" at Jack Stack BBQ! One of THE best BBQ restaurants in Kansas City! (And yes that is a little advertisement for them...haha!)
This is Steph and I outside of Jack Stacks, Downtown Kansas City (which btw...its the original and the best one!)

We of course had to get some self portraiture done while they were here as well. :) Love my beautiful friends!
I also got to spend some time with my sweet childhood friend, Melissa, that came up from Oklahoma! When we lived in Oklahoma we were best friends! Our Mom's were best friends (they're still friends to this day) so of course we were together a lot. But...we moved to Missouri when I was 3 so neither one of us really remember it as a child. We recently got reconnected (thanks to Facebook) about a year ago. I am so glad that she and her family was able to come up! It was great getting to know each other as adults now! Love you Melissa! Can't wait to hang out again!
This is Melissa, her husband Mark, Cadence and Gracie! What an adorable family!
This is the girls with my Mom...
