Sabrina Kuiken, of First ARP Gastonia, shares her impressions of attending the Family Bible Conference: In July 2016, I attended the Family Bible Conference for the first time. Several other women in my church, who were also my age, decided to attend with their children. Their husbands, like mine, were not able to attend due to work commitments. It had never occurred to me that attending without my husband was a possibility. I erroneously assumed that if your entire family couldn’t attend, then you were automatically disqualified. I mention this so that if there is anyone in my situation reading this article, you do not miss out on one of the biggest blessings this summer has to offer. Family Bible Conference provides an environment for spiritual encourage -ment and growth designed with the entire family in mind. In 1 Peter 5:10, we have a promise in scripture that “After you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.” I found that Family Bible Conference was a tool used by the Lord in my life to restore, confirm, strengthen and es -tablish me this side of heaven. The sessions and workshops presented much needed opportunities for my soul to be nourished. My prayer is that it will do the same for you. Family Bible Conference doesn’t just minister to the parents. They have a fantastic kids program as well. There are caring, energetic counselors; and a cur -riculum designed to get your children engaged with the Word of God and their own developing faith. My son was only 3 years old when we attended for the first time last year. It wasn’t until two nights after our return that I got a glimpse of the spiritual benefit of the week for him. We were attempting to tuck him into bed for the night, and he was literally bouncing off the walls. He was beaming with such joy telling me, “What I learned at camp was that I love God more than superheroes.” That alone was worth the trip!
