This weekend I had the pleasure of attending the Defending the Faith Conference on the campus of Franciscan University in Steubenville Ohio. It was my 4th (or maybe 5th lol) participation. This was by far the best line up they've had - and 1700 other people agreed with me! It was the largest crowd I have ever encountered there. Though, I have to say everything went remarkably smooth, particularly getting fed - which is always a big stress for me!!
For more on my amazing experience - please listen to the archive of my Tuesday episode of A Seeking Heart with Allison Gingras. I unpacked the whole conference, though honestly I still have so much left to share (expect some upcoming blogs to do that!!)
