"The practical tips, perspective shifts, and just the reminder that I'm not alone has been the encouragement I needed. Things were said in this conference that I'll be repeating for decades. When there's a round two, I'll definitely be spreading the word to get my single friends to join!"

Before I find love with another person, I need to first love myself and be in love with the God who created me and who has the best in store for me during this season!"
