Ladies Conference

On Friday (June 10th) and Saturday (June 11th), my sisters, Mom and I attended a ladies conference hosted by the Dr. Jobe Martin family. Abby, Phoebe and I filmed the sessions. It was such a blessing to have such fellowship with so many like-minded people, and I made several new friends! :) I also met a girl who shares my name-- says and spells her name the same way as I do! :) It was too bad, but I didn't think to get a photo with her.

Hey Ali,

Thanks for commenting!

No, this was not a Bright Lights conference. The Mally sisters were just some of the speakers at a conference some friends (the Dr. Jobe Martin family) had.

Blessings,

Hi there! I came across your blog on Esther H's. I see we know a lot of the same people, too! In fact, we go to RBC! When I saw your last name, it seemed very familiar to me. Did your family happen to bring a basket of goodies to us when our baby son was in the hospital in McKinney, back in 2005?
Anyway, It was fun to come across your blog! Blessings!

Hello Mrs. Gallagher,

Thanks for commenting!

I saw your parents at the Wahlquists Christmas sing along (in 2008) but at that time didn't realize who it was.

Really? You go to RBC? Were you at the conference?

I don't remember taking you food, but we live in McKinney. I'll ask my Mom! :)

We do have several mutual friends-- the Cronins, the Hales, and some of the people who go to RBC. :) I'm sure we have other mutual friends too!

In Christ,
Johanna

No, I wasn't at the conference. Maybe next time!
Do you know the Casons?

The Kautts said...

I see.

No, we don't know the Casons. But I've heard my friend Elisha Wahlquist mention them several times-- Claire was/is her violin teacher.
