Well, Illuminate is over. The best word to describe how I’m feeling right now is satisfied and thankful.

It was a great conference. Over and over and over again, people communicated to me that they were grateful for an opportunity like this. Many times people said that they totally didn’t expect what they got. They were blown away.

I’m satisfied because this is what we set out to do. We wanted to provide a “National Conference” experience that was local and affordable and this is what we did.

I’m thankful because my team did a great job pulling it off. It was a slim team, slimmer than I would have preferred. There was a small group of us that did a huge amount of work, but I’m grateful for everyone that helped. I actually had a few new volunteer that simply knocked it out of the park by totally owning some pretty significant stuff. All I can say is Woo Hoo!

So, I’ll post about Illuminate this week. I’ll  share what went well and what didn’t. I’ll share about what we did as well as future plans for Illuminate. Thanks to all of your who prayed for me and my team this week, it was much appreciated!
