My first blog post of 2014, and I am feeling refreshed and enthusiastic about the new year . . . thanks in great part to a wonderful women’s retreat that I had the pleasure of organizing and attending last weekend. What a treat! Two nights at the Coronado Island Marriott and four sessions of worship and teaching by my dear friend Dr. Gail Bones and her talented daughter, Emily Weeks.
Just before the retreat began, I had the opportunity to sneek over to the other side of the island for some family portraits with Emily and her equally-talented husband, Caleb Weeks. Their baby, Summer, was full of smiles and giggles in her red dress, and I can see why she is absolutely the apple of her grandmother’s eye.
