Alright, I’m going to take you way back to a post I wrote in November. Remember when I mentioned I'd be helping out with The Influence Network? Well, I never got around to sharing my new role with you and seeing that it’s one of my favorite new roles in 2014 AND it's a huge week for the Influence Network, I thought there's no better time then today!

New here? Wondering what the heck is this “Influence Network” I keep mentioning? Well, The Influence Network was established in 2013 to be a place where creatively minded women come together to be encouraged and to be resourced to make their online and offline lives mean something. It was created to open the conversation up about how we, as women, can be glorifying God in our work, families, relationships, communities, and so much more.

And The Influence Network all started with The Influence Conference. The conference is the place where the online community created through The Influence Network becomes real. I have yet to have the opportunity to attend, but I'm crossing my fingers 2014 will be the year! At the core of the conference, we're digging into the common thread of all of us -- the Good News. From there, the conference offers Life and Strategy tracks. So if you're a mom going through a season with littles or maybe you're desiring to go deeper in your faith this year, the Life Track may be for you. And if you're a blogger/business owner looking to take your business up a notch this year, they have incredibly talented (and successful) individuals lined up for you in the strategy track. To check out the dreamy line-up of speakers for 2014 head over here! This year, The Influence Conference is happening September 25-27 at the Westin Indianapolis in Indianapolis, IN. Curious to learn more? You can get all the conference details and order your tickets by stopping over here.


And quickly, back quick to where I started, my new role with The Influence Network. For the past few months, I’ve been working with the stellar Content Team, designing and writing our bi-weekly newsletter. The newsletter is for everyone, members and non-members of The Influence Network, and you can sign-up to receive it for yourself here. Every other week, we connect you with resources that guide you in being strategic with your week, and more importantly strategic and intentional with the Influence you have right in front of you. It’s chalked full of resources, encouragement, and all the opportunities you have at your fingertips when you’re a part of The Influence Community.

Honestly, my words will never do justice for the Kingdom work The Influence Network is doing in the lives of so many women. You just have to check it out for yourself. Start by reading the blog, signing up for the newsletter, and take a few minutes to checkout all the network has to offer.

At the core of it all is Christ and the question you have to ask yourself is:

"What will you do with your Influence this year?"
