Influence conference 2013 meet & greet!

I can't believe in 2 weeks I will be jumping on a plane (ALONE) and flying all the way to Indianapolis for the Influence Conference! 
While my mind is filled with anxious thoughts of preparation and traveling, my heart is joyful that I get this opportunity. Since the first time I heard about the conference, I wanted to be there so badly, but I just couldn't figure out where I was going to come up with to funds to make it happen. 
Turns out, I didn't have to.. God already had it figured out all along. 
My sister gave me some of their flight points so I could buy a plane ticket and The Lord just so happened  to sell our home right before making the decision if we could afford this. 
I cannot wait to meet Teressa who has honestly become on of my very best friends, and one of my biggest encouragers (along with my hubby) to my blog and this trip! I can't wait for late nights talking and early morning Starbucks with you friend! 
I'm also looking forward to meeting so many other girls who share my heart for writing and serving th Lord, which is all of them!! I feel so, so grateful for this! 
I'm excited too, about a time to just seek The Lord. Away from distractions and with a whole bunch of others who are there to do the same! 
Oh! And of course hearing some of my FAVORITE bloggers speak! Can't wait to learn new things about my blog and how to truly be an Influence in my Internet space. 
I won't be forgetting my trusty iPad.. I need it for so many things.. Like my Bible App, and the plane ride.. Books and blogging. I am sure some food will also make its way in there.. I like to eat.. And of course my business cards that I'm super excited about because Nathan just designed me a new logo.. Look out for a new blog design soon ;) 
If you're going, see you soon! If you aren't, grab a ticket & meet me there! 


  1. I'm going too, and I'm excited about it!

  2. Yay! I love all these stories about how God came through and made it happen. He is so good! I was pretty sure it was off the table for me and then one after another, I kept getting offers for my hotel room, my ticket, spending money and the day I said yes, we got a check in the mail that we weren't sure if we were going to get. And so I bought my plane ticket and it was settled! I will definitely be looking for you there. See you soon!
