Influence Conference 2013 // A Link Up

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

Hello to anyone new stopping by my little space this morning!  I'm Bri! And today I am joining in a special link-up with some of my Influence friends.



In just two weeks I am heading to Indianapolis to attend The Influence Conference for the second year in a row!  It's a weekend of dreaming, learning, planning, praying and hanging with my online tribe.

This community is the real deal.  We support each other, pray for each other, encourage each other and most importantly, we all share a common thread -- a passion for using our Influence and our gifts to make much of Jesus.  The goal is that our blogs, social media pages, websites, businesses, and books represent Him well.  We feel called to speak truth and encouragement and inspiration on our online spaces, and not just add to the noise.

I'm excited to join these ladies in Indy very soon to spur each other on in that goal.  Today I'm answering a couple questions as part of the linkup!

What are two items that I'll be sure to pack in my bag?  

1. A must when I travel is an iPhone full of good music!  //  I love to sit in an airport watching the hustle and bustle and just have my favorite tunes as the background.  When I'm traveling kid-free, it's a simple joy to sit still with my earphones, flip through a magazine, and only have to worry about one simple carry-on bag.  It's rare that I travel all by myself so I really enjoy it!  See some of what I'm listening to here.

2. A pretty notebook  //  Knowing the creative jolt I got after last year's conference, I am excited to crack open the blank pages of a new notebook and see what God places on my heart.  So many speakers, so little time. 


What are two things I'm looking forward to about the Conference?

1. Having focused time to dream and listen to what God has for me.  //  Lately it's been a bit hard for me to find time for simple dream-catching and strategizing.  A change of scenery always brings fresh perspective.  I'm looking forward to bouncing some creative ideas off my bloggy friends!

2.  Hearing Hayley, Jessi and Lara's sessions!  Refer to pretty notebook above.


Thanks for stopping by new friends!

  2. I bought myself a pretty new notebook too. I really like how you so succinctly described the message and mission of this conference--our goal is that the things we create represent Him well. Excellent!

  8. Bri - you already know this, but you were such an anchor for me when I got the the conference last year! and we didn't even know each other at all! Thank you for making me feel so welcome. My goal is to be that for someone else this year. Also, lets make a plan for dinner or something if you're not already booked up! And the more the merrier!
