A Kind of Crazy Idea

I have been
waiting for today ALL month!

Last month,
the VERY day that I got home from the Influence Conference my sweet friend Rachel text me with
these exact words: “So, I kinda have a crazy idea…

If you know
anything about us, you know that can be dangerous.

A few texts
& an email later – a giveaway for the 2015 Influence Conference was born.

But First…A little background…

I’ve always been a huge fan of the network, but since the conference last month, my heart has grown even more for it! Through the Influence Network I have been able to connect with women from all over the country – online & real life. I’ve met insanely influential people in women’s ministry, I’ve met fellow bloggers, inspiring business women, & I’ve sat through classes & workshops where I learn about God & am encouraged by my sisters in Christ.

I have also developed friendships that are unexplainable. I’ve met women who I’ve know for hours but feels like years. The bond we share is so much deeper & I know that it’s because Jesus destined us to be friends. That may sound totally cheesy but I am just trying to get you to understand just how much I LOVE this community of women!

Rachel & I were able to meet in real life last weekend & she is my long lost sister – literally. Our friendship has grown so much through Influence I am so thankful for her faith & encouragement in my life! Oh, & we are roomies & the 2015 conference so we will see TWO of YOU there (more on that below)!
