So, what are you blogging for?
Do you blog to make friends? Do you blog to take a break and have some adult conversation while your little ones nap? Or maybe, you blog to share how green or not so green it is on the other side of your fence?
Why do you blog?
As a woman who is in love with Jesus, my prayer is for my blog to encourage, inspire and hopefully touch another person's heart for Him. Over the past couple of years I have been blessed by so many of you, watching as you use your Internet real estate to further His gospel.
Some of you share the gospel by teachings of His word. Some of you are His hands and feet while using your blog as a prayer ministry. And still others of you encourage one another and further the gospel with your honesty and transparency. You show the world with your funny words and humorous wit, an internal joy that communicates just how much you love Him.
I am sharing all this today because there is a conference coming up soon that will encourage future bloggers and seasoned bloggers alike to be equipped and encouraged to blog for Him. For His kingdom and for His glory.
Free To Be Me will be held on Friday, October 23 and Saturday, October 24th. It will be held in Sneads, Florida (Northern Florida) near beautiful Lake Seminole. The cost is $100.00, but if you girls are quick it's only $75.00 for the first twenty-five who sign up!
And, have I mentioned who the guest speakers are yet? You are going to be as excited as I was. I can't wait to meet some of my favorite bloggers in person. I don't know who I will get to hug first. Maybe it will be Marsha Harwood from Marsha's Musings, or Tiffany Stuart from Tea with Tiffany and Laced with Grace. Or it could be Lynn Donovan from Spiritually Unequal Marriage and Laced with Grace, or possibly Lisa Shaw from Sharing Life with Lisa.
My precious friend Angie Knight from The Knightly News and Laced with Grace has been praying this gathering of blog women into existence for quite some time. So please, grab the "Free to be Me" button above and make sure to post about this conference on your site. It would mean so much to her, and to me too.
And one last thing...I'm very excited to share with you, that yours truly will be teaching a couple of classes too. I will be getting on a plane and flying cross country and praying that I finally get to meet many of you in person!
Friends, I will be praying for you. In this time of economic unrest, if the Lord wills you to be there, you will be there. He will find a way.
And just in case you are in California before I leave in October, you can stop by my place and I'll stuff you in my carry-on luggage.
