Mission Conference Ladies Supper

Every year our church has a mission's conference where local missionaries and/or missionaries home on furlough come and speak at our church. On Monday night the men meet together for supper with the male missionaries and the women with the women missionaries.

Through conversation before the conference, I found out that one lady in our church was doing all the work! I offered to help her out and she had me do the decorating and dessert. Since it was close to Valentine's Day, I went with that theme. I like to decorate with reds, pinks, and aqua for Valentine's Day.

We had strawberry spinach salad, baked potatoes with BBQ pork, green onions, sour cream and shredded cheese and yummy chocolate and vanilla raspberry cupcakes.
 We kept it very simple for the decorations, letting the salad and the cupcakes be a part of the decor.
I spray painted cold coffee jars with aqua glass paint and made yarn pom poms. With my Silhouette, I cut hearts and layered them and tied around the jar with a little tag that had the mission's conference theme on it.

Book Review: Amish Weddings by Leslie Gould.

Amish Weddings by Leslie Gould is the newest book I've read from Bethany House.
Amish Weddings (Neighbors of Lancaster County Book #3) by [Gould, Leslie]

This third book in Neighbors of Lancaster County series is about Rose. She is in love with Rueben, who is predictable, stable, and taking his time to set a wedding date. Then in walks Trevor, an army buddy of her brother-in-law. Trevor is exciting, unpredictable, and easygoing.

I liked this book in that I really didn't know how it was going to end. There were some plots, twists, and turns that definitely were not expected.

I don't want to give too much away, as I pass these on to some of my readers to read when I am done. I definitely would suggest this whole series by Leslie Gould.

**I received this book for free from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.**
