Connecting with Influence.
March 6, 2013 § 12 Comments
A pretty great group of ladies, I’ve found out, are putting amazing voices and content into the cyber world and building community. So today, as a part of that, we’re having a giant linkup party and sharing a bit about ourselves for all to read. It’s like a Super Online Cocktail Party (that you can read more about over at The Influence Blog and be directed toward more of these special ladies), but you can come to this one in yoga pants.
Let’s do this.
•Milk is pretty much my favorite thing. Besides the Lord. And my husband. Without it, the world around me loses its color, its meaning. It’s also the first thing my husband and I bonded over the day we met (Smith Bros. milk delivery 4EVA) and we can go through at least three gallons per week. Seriously. Obviously, it’s a big part of my life and therefore something you should know about me.
•I am currently seven months pregnant with our first child. And it’s a boy.
Or a girl.
One of the two.
But no matter what, it’s already a huge blessing gifting me in lessons on insecurity, grace, and what I’m capable of. I have never been so in awe of God and life, of creation and miracles. And I know this is just the beginning. New motherhood is going to blow. my. mind.
•I am a writer. It’s what I do. It’s what I’m trying to do. And no matter how hard I attempt to delve into my creative, fiction background, I end up writing non-fiction about life. Sex, marriage, divorce. Faith. You know, easy stuff. But it seems to be the direction the Lord wants me to take since I can’t seem to shake it and therefore, I do. Who can argue with the Almighty, right?
Okay. That sums me up in three bullet points. And as much as I struggle with “who are you?” summaries, I’m excited to be a part of The Influence Network linkup today and the community in general. So far, they have discussed great topics in their forums and provided awesome classes and resources that I’ve already begun to employ. Having a space to meet others striving toward the same thing–an online voice rooted in Christ– is exciting and encouraging.
If you’re new here, welcome. So nice to meet you. I hope we can be friends.
If you’re not new here, I like you. You know this. Thanks for being here.
