Here's our video from Choose Joy weekend! It always takes me a minute to process after getting home from Choose Joy. But I so enjoy reading everyone’s posts and I’m like YES AND AMEN to every single one.
This year as we were leaving, Emmy (founder) told Chris and I that she walked by one of our sessions and thought about how hard it must be for us to experience our story over and over as we tell it. And that got me thinking. Because my first thought was IT IS. It is so hard.
But my immediate next thought was..but we do it because God uses it to REDEEM AND COMFORT. And THAT is the thread that runs through this event in my mind. Comfort and Redemption (and so many other miraculous things.)
Emmy is so good to see the sacrifice involved in pressing into the hard stuff to reap the good. It’s what she and her whole team does. It’s what this event is made of.
I saw so many lightbulbs go off this weekend as people regained new strength to continue to face loss, infertility, IVF, adoption, or all of the above. COURAGE IS CONTAGIOUS and we passed it all around together. Guys, this event changed us a few months after our first loss and it continues to change us in all the best ways. Save your pennies and plan to come. Do it do it do it.
