Wow, this summer has flown by! I can’t believe it’s nearing the end of August already. September ushers in plenty of excitement to the scene including the start of our homeschooling (preschool) experience, the CM Leaders Conference and the Bloggy Conference! I am super excited!
Even though I’ve packed two conferences into one month, I anticipate they will be very different experiences. CM Leaders is all about leadership (something you can never learn too much about!) and will focus on developing, leading, and disciplining those in my kidmin team. As our church grows, I’m having trouble knowing how to develop the leaders effectively on my volunteer team and I’m anxious to hear some practical insights as well as some great heart lessons at CM Leaders. Not only that, I’m on the blogger team with some great people such as Barbara Graves, Bill Gunter, and Wayne stocks (did I miss anyone?)
The Bloggy Conference is for women bloggers (mostly mothers) and I think it’s be a time of great refreshing as I connect with other women and bask in all the creativity and talent around me. I can’t wait to meet some new friends and connect with my blogger friends!
