Time Out!

Last weekend I was able to attend Time Out For Women. This year’s theme was ‘Infinite Hope’. It was a great experience. If you have never gone to Time Out For Women, you should definitely check it out. It is a Friday night and Saturday filled with uplifting and inspiring talks and music, as well as plenty of laughs, too. We went last year, and I think it was even better this year!

There were so many great speakers that said so many great things. But, I will only post one little tidbit each speaker said. Hopefully something posted will touch your heart and help you out today. By the way, Pam, when I was taking pictures of each speaker I totally had it in my mind to do this, but then you beat me to it! Oh well…great minds think alike, I guess. ;)

Okay, one more from him, ‘cause his talk was just amazing…

“Jesus doesn’t make up the difference, He makes all the difference. He doesn’t fill the gaps, but fills us.”


“ Turn to the scriptures when you feel sad, hurt, scared, alone or upset. The scriptures have all the answers you need until you are with your Heavenly Father again.” – Mariama Kallon

Pam, Jenn, Jillian, Carissa

Like I said, it was a great event. All the speakers and performers were great.

During the lunch break we had a little picnic at a table outside of the convention center. The weather was perfect, as well as the company. I can’t wait to go next year!


  1. We had Dallyn Vail Bayles, too. A-maz-ing!

  2. Woo hoo! I tried to take pictures of all the speakers (well before my camera died), but they came out too fuzzy!

  3. Ooh I want to hear Merilee Boyack sometime- I love her books!


Comments make me smile. :D
