Corey and I had the opportunity to go to a PDYM (Purpose Driven Youth Ministry) Conference at Saddleback Community Church out in California together! The conference was great, different than most conferences that I have ever attended and one that I truly enjoyed. It was also GREAT to spend time with Corey (just the two of us). While we were out in Southern California we had the chance to meet up with some really good friends of ours that are actually doing a church plant in Temecula, CA (moved there from Texas about a year ago). Keep this couple, Matt and Sharon, in your prayers as they are fully relying on God and all that He has planned for their church-Ridgeline Community Church.
We also took a couple of mini excursions around the area-visiting Hollywood, downtown LA, drove along Pacific Coast Highway 1 (stopping to take a walk on the beach) and shopping and dining around the Laguna Beach area (which was SO beautiful). Even while we were in traffic, Corey and I had such a good time together. It was nice to be able to talk to each other. I thank God for our relationship and cannot believe that this summer we will celebrate our 9th year of marriage.
