A week and a half ago I was able to once again go down on my own (while Joe and the kids stayed home) to Epicenter- the Cru winter conference for the Northeast.  We had a good group of students from Maine who went and my job during the conference (other than leading our students) was to photograph the conference.  I was nervous about going this year because I was still feeling so crummy with the pregnancy.  Thankfully there was another photographer helping me so I was able to have decent breaks and time off.  I'm not sure how I would have done it otherwise because while I enjoyed the conference I was totally exhausted.  I missed a lot of time with students and friends after the evening sessions because I just needed more sleep than normal.  But it was worth it because our students loved it and learned so much about the Lord and surrendering their lives to Him.  And no matter how tired I am there is just nothing like worshiping with a group of almost 500 others who are truly seeking the Lord and His glory!  Here's just a glimpse of the conference:
