Okay, y’all. So apparently when I leave town, I also kind of mentally check out of when it comes to blogging. Which, normally, wouldn’t be that big of a deal. But when I’ve committed to write for 31 days, that’s kind of a fail. But it’s okay.
I’m back at it today.
The Influence Conference has met every expectation I ever imagined and more. The encouragement, inspiration and huge welcoming feeling make it the best conference I’ve ever attended. I can’t say enough about how great it has been.
We got to hear Emily Freeman speak yesterday, and I found myself sitting there, listening to her, and choking back tears at nearly everything she said. What a gift she has! She has this ability to speak straight to you and stir something in your soul. She’s down to earth yet full of wisdom. If you haven’t read Grace For The Good Girl and don’t subscribe to Chatting at the Sky, you should do it now.
I got to FaceTime with Todd and the boys this morning and that made my day. My boys love FaceTime!
Being here with Nina has been so much fun. We’ve had lots of time to sit and talk and just rest. And taking her by my high school was fun, too!
I wanted to share something with you all that Emily Freeman said to us to encourage us yesterday. She said, “Pay attention to what makes you cry. Your tears are tiny messengers from Christ that will help you tell your story.” Those tiny messengers. They show up a lot lately. Motherhood has made me a hormonal mess. But they are a reminder of what I feel passionately about and Emily’s beautiful words helped me realize that I should be paying more attention to that.
I hope you’re all having a great weekend so far. The Gamecocks play LSU in Baton Rouge tonight. Cheer for us from where ever you are. Unless, of course, you’re cheering for LSU.
