Influence Link-Up

InfluenceConf

In T-minus two weeks I'm hopping in a car and driving off to Indy to attend The Influence Conference!  To say I am excited is an understatement. I went last year and met the most incredible women. Women with a fierce love for Jesus and making Him known.

Lemme just tell you for a sec what I'm looking forward to:

A. Seeing friends I made last year at the conference and meeting friends in real life for the first time!

B. Sashes Market. Going into the conference last year I didn't realize how beautiful and amazing everything would be in there. So, this year, it's on Sashes Market. Me and you. 

C. Soaking everything up. Learning more about Jesus. Learning more about how I can influence others for Him with this lil' blog. 

I bet you're wondering what I'm going to have packed in my bag too, so I'll go ahead and tell you: 

A. Cash money for the Sashes Market, obvi.

B. Journal and my G2 pens (.38 extra fine point.) I don't leave home without these pens and I don't share them either. I know, so bad. 

C. Underwear. I forgot them last year so thank ya Jesus for a mall attached to the conference center. 

And for all the beautiful women who are linking up, here's a pic so you can hunt me down and then we can grab coffee:

Chambray on chambray that day!! 
Do you see my Better Life Bag over my right shoulder there? 
You're in luck, she's gonna be at the conference. I am in L-O-V-E love with this bag and what Better Life Bags is all about. Go to her site and check her out. Then buy a bag. 
Or, come with me to The Influence Conference and get one there! 

Can't wait to see everyone!

  14. Hi Christine! I love what you shared, and I'm making sure underwear is on my packing checklist. Just in case. :)
    I'm nervous/excited about the conference...I didn't know about it last year so I'm a total newbie...just getting on the bandwagon of connecting with all these amazing ladies via twitter/blogs/instagram.
