The lack of activity on this blog is just plain embarrassing. I’m scrambling to meet a book deadline and have a busy month of travel with four back-to-back weekend events. Anyway, that’s my excuse for neglecting this blog as of late. I will be back more regularly after I turn in this manuscript on October 15th. Prayers appreciated!
In the meantime, I thought I’d post a few snapshots from a couple of events I recently was a part of. I love it when a new speaking season starts up!
My daughter, Paige traveled with me to a women’s event at Celebration Church in Fairhope, Alabama on September 14-15. The town is so cute! We are at Panini Pete’s, who I’m told has been featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. The seared tuna panini was ah-mazing!
The next weekend, I was off to Birmingham for the dotMOM event on September 21-22! These are some of my favorite friends from the speaker/blogger world and our fearless event leader on the far right, Paige Greene (LifeWay).
Oh my. This dress from Nations Outfitters was in my gift basket in my room. Talk about a sweet swag bag! You must check out their clothes! Be sure to read about their ministry vision when you stop by.
The lovely Miss Jen Hatmaker, author of “7”, who is also a fellow Austinite and friend. My word, she is funny. But even more importantly, she will nudge you out of your Christian comfort zone. (Which btw, is a very good thing.)
My sweet daughter-in-law, Casey was with me for this event. Honestly, I feel overwhelmed when I think of how blessed I am that both my daughter and daughter-in-law like to travel with me to events. And yes, the Nations Outfitters dress was so cute, I decided to wear it the next day!
The one and only Esther Burroughs! I heard her speak many years ago as a young, insecure mother and was blown away. Never, ever did I imagine I would someday get to share the platform with her! Truly, one of the most beautiful women you’ll ever meet (inside and out).
That’s all for now, but check back in a couple of weeks. We have some amazing give-aways coming your way and I will be announcing the winning cover for my next book, Ever After!
