One of the Best Experiences of My Life!
Colour Conference 2019 was one of the best experiences of my life! Seeing all of the Year 11 girls come together and get along so well was awesome! Many new friendships were formed, while current friendships were strengthened. Connecting with Chaplain Saskia and Chaplain Fiona was also really beneficial for all of the girls.
I got so much out of each session, in particular, Pastor Bobbie Houston’s. On the first night of conference, she spoke about being found in the new. I have never had so many notes to write down at once! It was just scripture overload and I absolutely loved it! I also loved it when Laura Toggs spoke about what to do when everything just gets a bit too much. One of her points was, ‘In the midst of failing or falling short, and the heaviness of putting yourself out there and feeling inadequate or not enough – pick yourself up and try again!’ She gave us daily reminders like this that were so simple, yet we so often do not take the time to take a breath and remember that everything is in God’s hands.
Another thing I will never forget from this conference was one night during worship, I looked around and every single person in the auditorium had their hands lifted. Seeing thousands of women all worshiping the same God that I worship was absolutely incredible!
