Blessed in Fort Smith

We arrived at the church late afternoon. Our coordinators provided a delicious chicken spaghetti dinner, which allowed us great fellowship with them before the conference began.

The coordinator had come to a conference of ours several years ago. It had impacted their family, and the Lord had put it on their hearts to bring that message back to Ft. Smith. We are grateful for their efforts and investment in those who came to the conference. They took super good care of us while we were there meeting our every need! Thank you!!

In addition to local families, we had families drive from Kentucky, Texas, New Mexico, Kansas, and Missouri.

Friday evening, we began with Schedule Triage question and answer session for ladies while Steve did the business session. We had a great group!

For this conference, we completely revised our Building a Vision session, and we were happy with the result. Another change was a food and fellowship time at 8:00 after Building a Vision. It was a great success!

Saturday’s sessions went well with a flashback to our original conferences. We even pulled off the question and answer panel at the close of the conference with just five of us.

The church was available until 7:00 p.m. so those who wanted to stayed for a pizza dinner.

As we talked with people during and after the conference, we were blessed as they shared what God was doing in their hearts during the weekend.

On Sunday we joyfully worshipped at the coordinator’s church. Steve preached. Jesse led the singing, and Anna did a Bible story for the children. After church, they treated us to a wonderful Arkansas smoked meat home cooked dinner. When it was time to leave for home, it was hard to say goodbye.

“For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now; Being
confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in
you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.”
(Philippians 1:5-6)

  1. You guys are such a blessing!! Your conferences are so worth attending and the information is so biblical and practical. We are so grateful for your family!

  2. Hi Sarah,
    Just wanted to say a HUGE “Thank You” for the sweet Moody family books. Today is our 14th wedding anniversary. Our two daughters, who are 9 and 8, insisted on making a special dinner for us tonight. The table cloth is out, candles are lit and food is in the oven. I did see some science goggles being worn while chopping onions tho. 🙂
    This is all an idea from your sweet books. Thank you for the many ways you have helped “train my children in the ways they should go”.

  3. Looks like the conference went very well and I’m sure the attendees were blessed.
    Thank you for sharing these pictures–the photos with the little children are especially cute!
    Love, Mrs. Patti

  4. Hello to the Maxwell family,

    Your conference seemed wonderful. You had great time with a lot of people. I love the concept. I am re-reading « Sweet journey » and I love it. I missed a lot after my first reading. There are so many encouraging ways to be closer the Lord and I am working on scripture memorization but my memory is not what it was.

  5. I’ve always wanted to attend one of your conferences! I’m moving to Fayetteville AR in 3 weeks, I’m bummed I missed this conference! I know you were an encouragement to others in their walk with the Lord! Thank you for sharing 🙂
