Last Wednesday we headed off to Southern California for a conference in Santa Barbara and to spend a few days with family in Irvine. It was a fabulous week!
The conference was awesome. We went to the “Knowing Christ” conference with Dallas Willard and John Ortberg. It was very practical and I have lots of takeaways to ponder when I get home. During a couple of our breaks we were able to do a little exploring in Santa Barbara. We went to the Old Mission Santa Barbara and Stearns Wharf.
We also had a wonderful time visiting family in Irvine. It was a lot of fun spending time with our niece who is 2.5 years old. The last time we saw her was 2 years ago. A highlight was spending the day at Disneyland. We also were able to visit some friends in Redlands and do some exploring there.
It was truly a refreshing and relaxing week!
