Thank you all for being so encouraging about this new adventure I’m on these days. I knew you would be, but there is always a bit of fear in the risk. I appreciate your support and I look forward to giving you more details in the days and weeks to come!

For now, I want to grab the attention of you local-ish peeps and let you all know about a fun opportunity at the end of this month. It is a women’s conference in Charlotte, NC on August 28-29 and the speaker will be one of my personal favorite girls, Lysa TerKeurst. Based on her new book, Becoming More Than A Good Bible Study Girl, the MORE conference will be an opportunity to dive deep into the ‘more’ of life and apply God’s truth to the everyday mess. That girl speaks my language.

While Lysa will be covering the Jesus time, others of us will be covering some practical breakout sessions on Saturday. That is where the nesting comes in.


Yes, you heard that right. We’re talking house, people. If you missed our shenanigans at She Speaks, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to laugh-at-I mean-learn-with this giggly sister act. The Nester and I will be there to give detailed step-by-step instructions on how to mistreat your windows with real fabric and everything. And by The Nester and I, I mean The Nester. I will smile real big and point. Trust me, you don’t want to miss that.


Our session is called It Doesn’t Have To Be Perfect To Be Beautiful. Are you surprised? We’ll also give you some creative ideas for wall hangings and simple, kid-friendly decor. I can help with that part. If you want confidence and beauty in your home but can’t afford a makeover, this session will give you the practical advice you need to creating a home that reflects your priorities and respects your budget.

Don’t you want to come and join the fun? For more information about the conference, visit Southbrook’s Women’s Conference site.
