I’m just looking forward to a day where I’m removed from my responsibilities. I won’t have to worry about kids; I don’t want to think about my store; I don’t have to prepare meals; it’s bound to be a great day.” The Northeast Montana Women’s Conference “Confidence in Love” came at the perfect time for me.
