Teach the Truth

This weekend Michael took the teens to the T3 youth conference in Lewisville.
This was our group's 3rd year to go, Michael's 2nd, and my 1st.
I have been to a few different weekends like this, but this is probably the best one.
It was so nice to be able to send our kids to the different classes, and not have to worry about what they were being taught.
With other weekends like this we find ourselves having to explain several aspects of the weekend:
Praise teams, women's roles, etc.
There was none of that this weekend.
It was a conference grounded in the Word, and following the principles laid out by God.
It was amazing. And our kids learned SO MUCH.
The highlight of my weekend was spending time these girls!!
We spent over 8 hours in a car with each other and it was a blast.
We sang to all the songs of Les Mis, played several car games, and spent LOTS of time talking about boys.
And the word "awkward" was used at least 1,000 times.
It's their favorite.
We also stopped at Braum's, which none of them had ever been to!!
It was perfect, as always.
The only challenge of the weekend was the girls' housing.
There were 15 of us, in one house, sharing one bathroom.
Talk about crazy!
I was definitely the bathroom police all weekend, no fun.
Our sweet host parents made it completely worth it though.
They were so kind and hospitable, filling us up with delicious food, and giving us free reigns over their house.
They were so wonderful, and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay!
It was a great weekend, and our teens came home with more knowledge about how to evangelize, and share the truth with their friends. 
These kids make me so proud all the time!
I know they are going to do great things this year.
I'm so happy that I got to go to T3 this year.
I love spending time with the teens, but I love spending time with this guy even more!
Hope your weekend was as blessed as mine!!
