EG Turns 90 & MF 30

A Little Background before the Big Birthday
I started in MF when my oldest, Will, was just 4 months old!
It was the Fall of 1999
I attended faithfully every Monday morning from 9:30-11:30. 
I was hungry for the Lord...and MF studies & EG helped feed that hunger.
Guessing this was Fall 2003 since Abby is around 2 yrs old and I'm preg with Miss Ella
(that would be my now 9 yr old Ella)
(It would take more than just a blog post to explain what all went down between attending MF and becoming the facilitator...let's just say it was a GOD THING!)
September 2011, my first morning to lead Mothers Fellowship

I love the "GLORIFY GOD" in the background...isn't that what MF is all about? Glorifying God through our meeting together, studying His Word and encouraging one another.

The April Tidings came out THE DAY of the Party!!! 
And guess who was on the front of it?! :-))
My Message to EG in her 90th B'day Scrapbook:

I have had the wonderful privilege of knowing Esther Gene for over 13 years now. I started in Mothers Fellowship the Fall of 1999 as a brand new Mom with a 4 month old baby boy. I was incredibly hungry for more of God's Word as well as fellowship with other young Moms. Oh how Mothers Fellowship fit the bill! Esther Gene has played an integral role in helping grow my faith, my knowledge of scripture and my love of prayer. God blessed me BIG when he divinely placed her in my life. To have the honor of sitting next to her every Tuesday morning is something I cherish with all my heart. I pray that I can continue her amazing legacy of faithfulness and love for God's word for the next generation.

Becky, EG's granddaughter, sang a beautiful song to her
