influential women.

have y'all ever heard of the influence network? well let me just tell you.. it's amazing. you wanna talk about community? this is it!
realness. gospel. encouragement. women. truth. wisdom. more gospel. community.
and it's good.

last year i had the privilege to attend the influence conference which is where it all started.
and i am so stinkin' excited to be attending again this year! - so excited that i bought my ticket on the second day of the conference last year!

but today i am looking forward co-hosting the link up today and having the opportunity to get to know some of the amazing women in this community who have some powerful influence both on and offline. if you're part of the network - you should join the link up so we can get to know you better! and if you're not part of the network.. you should totally join! you won't regret it!

here are a few guidelines:
- to participate - you must be [or become!] a member of the influence network.
- link your post up, visit the blog of the person before you in the link-up, and leave them some love cause we all know it's great to read some encouragement from our readers.
- your post should include the following:
... a photo of yourself that you love.
... three 'get-to-know-me' things.
... one valuable thing you've gained from the network.

this is one of my favorite pictures. it's from our wedding day a year and a half ago.
it was a wonderful day too. being with my best friend, the sun shining on our faces, so much laughter and the presence of god before us while joining together as one.

three things about me..

one.. i have a huge passion for jesus and women. i love doing life with other women and i really love it when it's focused on making much of jesus! [another reason i'm totally loving the network!!]. take that and throw in a cup of joe and it's bound to be something glorious!
i know the lord is going to use this passion of mine in some amazing way - and i'm not quite sure what it is.. but am excited to see where it takes me!

two.. i am more of a creative thinker than analytical. i love dreaming and envisioning and doing all sorts of things creative. diy projects.. cooking.. crafting.. - you name it!

three.. i am married to my best friend. we've been married for a year and a half this month! marriage has been a crazy awesome journey so far and i am so excited to be working hand in hand and doing life with the most amazing man in the world!

one valuable thing i've gained from the network..

ahh.. just one! there are so many things..
i would have to say some crazy awesome friendships! oh my word y'all - it's been so amazing to connect with women that are in all different seasons of life [and some in the same season!] and it's so encouraging to bounce ideas off each other and be real and raw about where we're at. so much wisdom and truth spoken! i love it! and the classes are ROCKIN'!

so.. that's a little about me. come join the network and link up!
can't wait to 'meet' y'all!
