The amazing power of friendship.. what a conference!

Well, it has taken this long to slow down and get perspective over last weekend’s event. Bobbye and I held our 6th annual Women’s Conference in San Diego. This year’s theme was the Power of Friendship. We had over 1200 in attendance and a jammed packed day. Because the theme was friendship, it seemed like everyone was extra friendly. I met so many great women and had a blast. One gal came up to me in the middle of the day and asked if I was having as much fun as it seemed. The answer was, “Absolutely.”  Those kinds of days are precious. God brought all types of women together to encourage each other and be touched by Him through the conversations of others. And we have to admit that Point Loma’s campus is a great place to get away for the day.

Today, we went through the resources. We sold out of our Spiritual Warfare study and 4-CD set. We also sold out of the Prayer Journals teaching CD. Because of that, we decided to keep it at a discounted price for the month. If you are interested, email us at

When I think of how much this conference has grown, I stand amazed. We serve an Awesome God who knows best and will do whatever it takes to get you where you need to be. I can’t believe how much I tried to fight His plan for me. My thoughts have had to be conformed to His thoughts and I am just thankful that I learned to surrender from my heart to change the wrong thoughts in my head. God has so much more for us but we tend to be the object that gets in the way of allowing Him to answer our prayers. Silly but true.

Many of the women who attended and filled out the evaluation cards asked for Bobbye and me to teach more. They greatly appreciated the teaching and wrote down, “more teaching.” The day was not designed for teaching but we can’t help ourselves, so I am thankful that it was so appreciated. I also appreciate all the women who raised their hands to come to Christ (around 125) and of course, those women who came down to the altar seeking God’s empowerment for a committed life (around 600+).

We cannot forget our final song… (we will think of that as our goodbye hug)…to remember the day and the goodness of God in the midst of it all. His Spirit was absolutely present and we are humbled and grateful to be women who are called to glorify Him together… with all our friends. Go to to see some cool pictures of our new friends!

If you are interested in receiving more teaching, we are going to be doing a live Bible study and an online Bible study in the book of Ephesians starting in March. Webcasting is very easy to do. If you need clarification or more information, be sure to click on to or call 888-727-7206.

Also, we will be back on KPRZ radio this Saturday 1210AM at 10:00 am. Be sure to call in! We would love to hear how God touched you throughout the day.

Much love to you all and for those of you who could not attend, you were missed!            ——Tonilee

    I don’t know where else to enter this information…I heard about the Friendship Conference Sunday, November 4, 2012. Looks like the next Converence is set for March 9th. I am excited about this and hope to figure out how to get involved to help.
