Comments from Strong in the Lord Conferences Attendees
“My daughter and I had such a wonderful time. I think I cried through the entire conference. I was so full of emotion about things that the Lord was speaking to me about regarding relationships with each of my children. I am trusting Him to restore relationships where there has been brokenness. I am trusting Him to continue to show me where I have been wrong.”
“This was an amazing conference. I found myself crying because of how touched I was.” – 8 yr old girl
“[I was] so impressed with the maturity and spiritual lives of the young women who were up front! The use of memorized Scripture throughout all the presentations is such a wonderful testimony to our daughters!”
“Before I came to your Bright Lights conferences I used to think that being a Christian was stupid. I used to think that when I turned 18 I would be able to do whatever I wanted, but I guess I didn’t stop to think how stupid that was. I also hated to read my Bible so much, that sometimes I would lie to my mom when she asked if I did it, or I would just read a sentence and call that reading it. The second my mom told me I was going to the Bright Lights conference in Clearwater, I thought, “Oh great! Just what I need, a whole bunch of ‘goody-goodys’ teaching me what I already know and don’t exactly care for!” Well, I had no idea what I was in for! When I saw all the faces of the Bright Lights leaders and how your countenances looked so joyous and young, I thought, “Wow! I want to be just like them!” My mom was always telling me that the ways of the world are bad and can really mess you up, and I knew I should listen, but I was rebellious and it always went in one ear and out the other. I also didn’t understand what the difference was in someone’s life if they were a Christian. You helped me see that point of view. As soon as I got those Bible reading goals I couldn’t wait to start. I just wanted to say thank you for bringing me closer to the Lord.” - 12 yr old girl
“Thank you so much! I plan to trust God more, to love my siblings more, and to tell my mom everything.” – 11 year old girl
“I’m going to make some things right (clear my conscience) and refresh my devotions and to seek God in a new way. It is so encouraging because I’ve really been trying to shine for Him and to know Jesus as my best friend.” —14 year old girl
“This is a wonderful new change in [my daughter’s] heart …I was very moved and extremely blessed by your conference!!!”
"My oldest daughter (now 16) and I attended a Bright Lights conference in Oklahoma City five years ago. What a blessing it was! We still see and marvel at the fruits. Now my younger daughter and I are looking forward to your Radiant Purity conference in July. We can't wait to see what God will do next!"
