54 Interesting Quotes From the #D62016 Conference


Can you think of a time when God surprised you through opening up certain doors? You were hoping to do something or be somewhere and were delighted to see it come to fruition. A few weeks ago, I was hoping to have the opportunity to attend the D6 Conference with my youth pastor but unfortunately the details did not line up. Then through a random conversation with a friend, we were invited to attend. I am so grateful for this wonderful opportunity and would love to share with you 54 interesting quotes from my last minute #D62016 Conference.
