On Thursday, I shared with you the awesomeness of meeting online friends in real life. I compared this adventure to falling into a huge bowl of Banana Pudding. Little did I know how much awesomeness I was in for. The Relevant Conference is the first of it’s kind – a conference designed for Christian blogging women.
Thoughts, conversations, friendships, words, hugs, smiles, tears and prayers are bouncing around in my heart and mind. Honestly, I’m not quite sure how to put the last four days of my life into words. I’m processing everything that I’ve absorbed, but it’s going to take me awhile to get through it all.
My heart is just so full.
This past weekend, I didn’t just meet online friends in real life.
I met God.
I faced heart issues and my totally-out-of-whack-priorities for the first time in a very long time. In the words of my sweet friend Sarah Mae, I’ve not come home to build my blog, but I’ve come home to build my family. I truly love my readers. I love writing. I love crafting. I love creating.
But I love God and my family more. Twenty years from now, I don’t want to look back and wish that I had spent more time with God and my husband and our son.
So, because of the change in my heart, change is coming to my blog.
Instead of posting six days a week like I’ve been doing for the last 1 1/2 years, I’ll be posting fewer, but more intentional posts. I’m thrilled with this decision. It will relieve stress in my heart and home and it will give you some rockin’ awesome content throughout the week.
In November, I’m participating in the 30 Day Giving Challenge and I’m hosting an Online Baby Shower for a pregnancy crisis center. Please consider joining me in these wonderful causes! I have crafts, diy projects and recipes to share with you and I’m moving Friday Fails to the first Friday of each month! 🙂
Trust me. I’m not going anywhere. But my family deserves my best. Not my leftovers.
I’m so thankful and blessed to have been able to attend The Relevant Conference. I’m thankful to my husband who kept Ridley for three days straight without a single complaint and who drove 11.5 hours yesterday on the way home. I’m thankful to Sarah Mae, Dana and Jessie who were the most wonderful hostesses ever. I’m thankful to all the wonderful friends I re-connected with and for the new friendships that were made. I’m thankful to the sponsors who made the conference possible.
And I’m thankful to God who came and changed my heart, soul and mind.
