Perfectly Preserved

"The Lord preserveth the faithful"
Psalm 31:23

This past weekend I attended the WFBC Ladies' Retreat with my daughter at Northland. 
  We had a great time visiting with each other and friends from Northland along with some uplifting sessions.
Our main speaker was Mrs. Marcia Phillips, pastors wife from Faith Baptist in Pembine, WI.  I was able to attend two A and B Workshops also.  They all sounded  good so ended up ordering the MP3 of the Retreat, that way will be able to listen to all of the work shops.  This is a list of the workshops we could pick from.

Oh No! I'm Single: Now What?  (Susan Wagar)
Shaking off the Snake Bite of Bitterness  (Debbie Brown)
Extreme Church Makeover!  (Andrea Anderson, Linda Stevens & Carole Vawter)
Physical Preservation Principles  (Marcia Phillips)
A Joyful Union  (Dee Dee Gearhart)
Social Networking  (Nicholette Mukai)
Consistency with Children  (Mary Stertz)
Salvation Testimony (Pastor Robert & Mary Dow)
Relocating: Helping, Adjustments, and Tips (Sue Zemke)
My Picture of Life  (Sue Nicewander)

It was a weekend of getting into Gods Word, good fellowship and good food.  

At home here we are waiting for spring to show up, the Robins are back along with the snow!  Spring must be just around the corner!  Have a wonderful Day.
