Is there anything better than seeing your child so excited about God that they are tearful and full of desire to see God move not only for them but ALL people?!!
Miranda came home from Acquire The Fire today.
She had the best time.
As some of you know, she is an amazing guitarist herself... so getting so see some of her favorite Christian bands play was such a great experience.
She got to see Esterlyn...
and Leeland (her alltime fave!)
She even got her pic taken with the lead singer of Esterlyn...
The funny thing about Christian kids from Utah is that they really don't have a clue about Christian life outside of this state. As many of you can guess, living in this state can be a little difficult for Christians. Everything, and I mean everything, is ran by the religion that is dominant in this state. (media, hospitals, schools, etc...)
These kids were shocked to see a billboard with a Bible scripture on it! You just don't see that here. They saw Christian items sold in stores. They were amazed. You can try to explain to your kids how different it is anywhere outside of this state... but until they see it for themselves, they just can't imagine it.
Miranda was able to get autographs from some of her favorites.
The trip home was fog filled.
I loved that Miranda took a picture of the big screens when they put up there...
If you are from Utah yell "I love Jesus!"
Many times, people discount this state... they forget that there are many of us Christians here that are fighting the good fight...
It can become discouraging sometimes.
It is great to know that someone remembers you are here.
I want to say thanks to everyone for prayer, money, etc... in helping Miranda to make it to Acquire The Fire.
If your child has a chance to go to one of these conventions around the country... DO IT!
They will come back changed.
