First Baptist hosted Matt and Lauren Chandler and about 2,000 people in attendance plus thousands streaming live...including Nick and Abby!
We heard lots of good advice and encouragement but if I had to choose one main point it would be "become an expert on your spouse's strengths."
Chris and I left the conference feeling very blessed at how we can see the Lord binding us together while He teaches us how to love each other more.
I couldn't help but think of all my single friends who desire marriage yet are waiting for the Lord's provision. This weekend reminded me how important it is to not settle but to wait on the one the Lord has for you. It also reminded me how important it is to prepare yourself for marriage before you're married! I'm so glad I observed other marriages, read quality books on marriage and kept my relationship with the Lord strong before I met Chris. I recently heard someone say who you are before you're married is who you'll be after you're married (good, bad and ugly!).
There's so much to ponder and process after a conference. It seemed only right to start our processing at brunch! Chris surprised me by taking me to Biscotti's for their Creme Brûlée French Toast with Orange Honey Marscapone Cream. A perfect end to our conference weekend!
