The Influence Conference is just over two weeks away.
I’m getting all kinds of excited and nervous and so ready.
Here is an awkward picture of me. You are welcome. Smiley face.
2 THINGS I’LL BE PACKING
1. Dry shampoo. I’ve finally crossed over and it is the best thing ever. It takes me forever to dry my hair everyday. For.Ev.Er. My husband is saying hallelujahs over how quickly I can get ready on dry shampoo days. Seriously. I’m a little embarrassed at how it is changing my life.
2. Little pieces of my world here. I’m an introvert. Shocker. I’m also a shy introvert. When I get far away from home, my heart legs get all wobbly and before you know it I’m ugly crying into the phone while my husband gives his best version of a pep talk. But I’m in a really lovely harvesting season here and I’m adding some pretty amazing things into my life in the form of relationships. So I’m bringing the truth that the beauty of relationships is in the way God meets us there. Hearts are His currency and I plan on seeking out ways to connect deeply.
2 THINGS I’M ANTICIPATING
1. Actual fall-like weather. I’m so thankful for our mild winters because I’m not really built for bitter cold and tromping through snowy days but this time of year always makes me angry-impatient for cooler nights and days. The thought of wearing AND needing a light sweater in September? Makes me giddy.
2. Being humbled. Anything I can imagine or dream up falls so short of God’s own vision. I know the women who are behind this thing. I’ve seen the beauty of this community in forums and online classrooms. But for it to be in my face? I don’t think I can accurately wrap my brain around the beautiful things He will do in my heart and in community. And the speakers? I’m already torn about which sessions to go to.
I’m linking up today at The Influence Conference blog with other attendees.
