Cherish Conference

We are One. That was the theme of this years Cherish Womens Conference. And so we all began the trip by heading to Leeds, England as ONE bunch of awesome women in a bus. A loud bus, might I add. We were all very chatty ;) I distinctly remember the whole bus singing to the theme song of Frozen ;) hehe

Our wristbands when we stopped at services for lunch 
We then arrived at the hotel and were divided into rooms. I was going to be sharing a queen size bed with Morven, and Isabelle and Steph would be sharing a bed as well in our room.

After we had settled down and been to the bathroom we set off for dinner: Mcdonalds ;)

We then set off for the first night of the conference with spirits held high and hearts ready to be filled in awe.

Opening sequence of the first night 

My favourite song that night: He never fails
Dancing with the lights 
Dinner of fried duck dumplings. I am very happy to say that I used my chopsticks all night and had amazing green tea :)


The second day at the conference. We were waiting in the line, because security had to go through all our bags to allow us into the conference
My lunch on day two: Peanut butter and bacon burger with sweet potato chips. Sounds interesting, I know, but it was on the menu!! 
Steph and I taking a tea brake while the other room mates sleep :) 
My HUGGEE Chai Latte <3

My starter for lunch: dough balls
Our necklaces that we were given. They represent being united as One in Christ
The final session: Morven, Steph and I
Goodbye Cherish!! 
In the bus back to Edinburgh. Steph and I had a lovely time dancing and singing

I am so thankful for the time that I had to relax with my girlie friends this weekend!! What I got out of the trip was an understanding of God's love. I really don't think that there is ever going to be a time when we are not learning about God's love.

Till next time,
