Relevant Bound!

Have you seen that button<--- over there? At the top? The one that screams "I'M GOING!"? I have it there because, well, I'M GOING! Now that we have that cleared up, let me 'splain to what I am going.


Relevant. A Christian bloggers conference that I cannot wait to attend. Sweet Sarah Mae's brain child. Well, Sarah's and Jessica's and Dana's, the latter two I have yet the privilege to "meet." Someone asked me why I wanted to attend Relevant and at first I couldn't really say. It took me a minute to really think about why I was so excited to go.

Well, for one thing I'll get to see her and her and her and even sing with her. But seeing some of my favorite bloggy peeps is only part of it. I think we as Christian bloggers have such a bond (does that sound inexplicably cheesy?). We love the same things, and I'm not talking about paint colors. Well, maybe a little bit. No, we all love the Lord, and there's just something about gathering together with women who share that love. We also love fellowship with other believers, or we wouldn't be spending our time and money to go. We also love learning more about this vast universe called Blogland and how to use it to spread the Word.

Are we perfect? More like perfectly imperfect! But it's those quirks that make us who we are. I just hope no one asks me if my laundry is caught up or when the last time I vacuumed was. Am I nervous about traveling so far away from home by my little lonesome? Kinda, yeah. But I know (at least I HOPE) that I'll soon be surrounded by other ladies in the same boat. I can't wait to meet you.

For those of you heading to Relevant: If you're traveling through Memphis by air, let me know! I'm planning on flying and hitching rides everywhere once I get to Harrisburg.

Now that I've committed to going, I have to figure out how I'm going to pay for it! HA! I do have a back up plan, but my goal is to sell enough tassels to fund my trip. If you'd like to help "sponsor" little ol' me, head over to my Etsy shop and see if there's something you'd like. Or, you can always ask for a custom order.




I can't wait! Hope to see you there!

I talked to Sarah Mae the other day and told her that I'd talked to you about Relevant. I think I need to go. It sounds too good to miss. Now to see if I can work out the details. . . .

I am new to your blog and linked here from your comment on Like a
Warm Cup of Coffee regarding what men need. I could not find your email addy but I would love for you to email me what you learned from the Bible study you mentioned. I am really struggling in this area right now - balancing a full time job, keeping the house and then being there for him. My email is tandypierce@bellsouth.net.

Thank you so much.
