Polishing the Pulpit

We just got home from one of the most uplifting and inspirational vacations ever! B and I were provided the chance to go to a National Gospel convention called Polishing the Pulpit. It was held outside Pigeon Forge, TN and hosted a couple thousand disciples of Christ. We attended a variety of Bible courses and learned so much. It will definitely be an annual trip for our family. What a perfect vacation: learning about our Lord and spending time in the great mountains He created.

While we were there, Colton and Ellie got to meet the famous Digger Doug and Iguana Don of the Digger Doug Creation DVDs. Here is Colton getting a big hug from Digger Doug.Ellie had a turn, too.And Iggy...
We also went to the aquarium. The penguin playground was my favorite. Of course.

Ellie and me with the fishes.
Elliette the great sea explorer.
And Colton the diver.
Oh, and we also a first ER visit for Ellie. She has learned not to run in hotel rooms because you will most likely fall and hit your head on a table. But no stitches needed. She got glued, taped up and was as good as new.
Colton being goofy on our way up the Smoky Mountains.
On top of the Smokies. What a gorgeous view.Our two standing in two states.Hiking with Daddy. Ellie loved it. Colton, well, you can read body language.Mimi and Pops also took us to play mini-golf. It was the first round of Putt-Putt for Colton and Elliette.
Daddy has some coaching to do.And here is Colton and Ellie in their Bible class. There was excellent child care while B and I went to Bible lessons. Colton and Ellie loved it!!
Polishing the Pulpit was amazing. I encourage anyone who wants to grow in Christ to attend. You will leave renewed and ready to serve the Lord's church.
