Back in 2004 (I think) we had our first PC Ladies Retreat at a local hotel here in OKC. Our Pastor’s wife, Tiffany, spoke…shared her heart about woman who have mentored her. It was a great evening!
At the end of the first night we gathered in a circle and spent some time getting to know each other, sharing our lives, shedding some tears…okay, maybe that was just me. But, it was a great time of fellowship and was the foundation that helped to grow some amazing friendships.
At the end of that time we all took several pieces of paper and wrote sweet things anonymously about anyone we felt led to share with. I received several of these uplifting and sweet notes that evening and still have them tucked in my bible.
I came across them this week and had to smile at the memories of that retreat. There are great friendships that grew out of that time and many of these friends are mentors in my life. Ladies who have helped me grow into a better wife, mother and friend.
In return I hope that I am able to do the same for women that God puts in my life.
Thank you to all the women in my life for being a part of molding me into who I am today~
Happy Throwback Thursday!
As iron sharpens iron,
so a friend sharpens a friend
P. S. That small group of ladies has grown into our Chicas ministry.
