Influence Conference.. Why i chose to go…

I am sure many of you are wondering what the heck Influence is..
and why the heck am I going..
and why in the world is she saying heck so many times for…

I can answer the first two questions but the last one is..well that’s for the birds.
take that.

I say: influence conference…some say: a place for Internet strangers to meet
I say: a place to learn and grow …some say: a place for social media addicts to unite
I say: they get me … some say: that’s because they like taking pictures of their food

what the people behind Influence say”

If you’ve ever wondered how or why the Lord was going to use you in your home, work, community, or online – Influence is a fantastic place to connect and learn. We believe that God has given you influence right where you are, for one purpose: to make much of Him. At Influence we’re going to dig into the common thread of all of us – the Good News. We plan on doing a little teaching, talking, sharing, and celebrating concerning the ways He might want to use you on the individual platforms He’s given.
If you’re a blogger or social media pro who wants to grow in her ability to leverage the Internet to make much of Jesus–and help support your family’s ability to act and minister – Influence will be that conference.   We’ll have professionals who make real and consistent money ready to teach you how to be all about the Gospel and support your family’s ability to spread it.  If you’re a gal who cares little about the Internet, we believe Influence is for you too and you’ll be blessed beyond measure by coming.
We have some speakers lined up who are wise and precious and cannot wait to dig a variety of topics in life and strategy – from marriage to branding, forgiveness to ebooks. We want to talk about it all.
If you’ve always wanted a community of women, but never felt you fit in at Christian conferences before, come knowing you’ll be embraced and all your charm and quirk will be loved!
Lastly, if you’re looking for a weekend to experience community among like-minded women, if you’re looking for a fun and engaging weekend, if you want to meet some of the amazing women online who you talk to or read about or think you could learn from, Influence is the place. Bring a few friends or feel free to come by yourself (we promise you won’t feel alone!), come and celebrate the Influence God has given you with us.

and all God’s people said “Amen”
okay at least..ahhh that sounds amazing!

What am I most excited about?
Let’s be honest…  meeting and rooming with Amanda, Rebecca, and Julie alone is exciting enough
but i even get to ride all the way there with Ginny
I am also excited to meet and hear the amazing speakers…
such as Jami (eeek), Casey, Jessica, Hayley, Jessi, and Nish 
and hear all about…

I am excited to learn how to be more bold in my faith, how to share the good news, and crafts at the same time! How to be a better writer, and make my blogging time more of a ministry.

Did I mention I will get to meet Jami???

Her story about God redeeming her marriage and trusting him in raising her children is so inspirational and she crafts/bakes/DIY’s in between…

So what about you? Are you going to Influence?
There is still time to buy a ticket.
Have you gone to any blog/social media conferences?
