influential women link up

I'm so excited to be a part of the Influence Network and also incredibly honored to be a community & workshop leader at the conference in September. Today, all members of the Influence Network and gals planning on attending the conference are participating in a little link up to get familiar with some faces, hearts, and new blogs! SO, that's what's going on here today. 


Three things about me:
I drink ((almost)) Dr. Pepper daily.
I want an airedale terrier named Archie one day. 
I'm a self-diagnosed fabric hoarder. I'm working on it, promise.
Bonus: I've never colored my hair but the gray hairs are popping up all too frequently these days, so my day may be coming. 

One valuable thing I've gained from the Influence Network:
The most valuable thing that I've gained from the Influence Network is the spurring on, encouragement, and opportunities I've received to use my voice and my influence ((I was really trying to NOT use the word influence haha!)). It's so easy to get lost in the shuffle in the midst of all the blogs and handmade shops out there, but I feel that I've gotten to use my story and my experiences to help women grow.  From that - I've also grown and been challenged. Even in the midst of lighthearted DIY's and photoshopped filtered photos of recipes, God can use my blog, shop, and gifts for good and ultimately, His glory. What a sweet gift of an opportunity. 

Have you joined the influence network yet? Are you planning to attend the conference in September? If so, I can't wait to meet you!

love.

  17. "Even in the midst of lighthearted DIY's and photoshopped filtered photos of recipes, God can use my blog, shop, and gifts for good and ultimately, His glory." YES. That.

    i've thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you during my time in the blogging world, and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't kinda sorta geeked to possibly meet you in September.
