As a young mom staying home, creative + engaging work became a necessity in this new routine. Writing on my blog helps serve that purpose. But I’ve also been spending several hours a week working for The Influence Network, and I LOVE it.
Recently, I tweeted that I wish I had a group photo with my teammates: Ashley, Jessi, Hayley, Moriah, and Rachael, to keep out on my desk. These women are such a daily blessing to me. Working together pushes me to try different things, learn new skills, and engage with amazing people. They point me back to Jesus and continually remind me of God’s grace. The crazy thing is that I’ve only met two of them in real life. That is what this network is all about.
To keep you in the loop, here are a few creative endeavors I’ve been part of lately:
1. THE BLOG
For the past six months, I’ve helped schedule, guide and write content on The Influence Blog. The goal is to provide cutting edge content for women about life – online and off. You’ll also catch a glimpse into all the network has to offer – like online classes, regional meetups, business services, and forums.
On July 1st, the blog will get a fresh new design with easier navigation as we incorporate it into the network site. I cannot wait for you to see it!
2. THE MAGAZINE
Working as the managing editor, I’ve come on board to help with the second issue of The Influence Magazine. Just this past week, emails from incredible writers, designers, and photographers have been popping up in my inbox. The first issue was lovely, fresh, and modern – and we’re making the second even better!
3. THE CONFERENCE
The Influence Conference is September 26-28 in Indianapolis at the Westin Hotel. It will be a beautiful weekend to bless and inspire young women to make their lives – online and off – mean something for the gospel. Seeing you there (especially you Ft. Wayne and Indianapolis girls!!) would be incredibly lovely, and now is a perfect time to get your ticket.
Curious? Tonight at 9 pm EST, we’re hosting a live video simulcast all about the conference – so if you have questions or want more information, be sure to watch! (The recording will be posted on the blog this Friday if you already have plans.)
If you aren’t involved with The Influence Network – here are some details:
++ The blog is free for anyone, and I’d highly recommend subscribing to it!
++ The magazine is free for Influence members, and you can join for as little as $5.
++ The conference tickets and info are all available HERE.
