For a few years now, I’ve heard lots of Christian Bloggers wanting a blogging conference that covers issues unique to them. I have felt the same way, as well, on occasion. Although I am more than comfortable around all types of bloggers, it’s can be nice to be in the presence of true kindred spirits.
So the wonderful Sarah Mae of Like a Warm Cup of Coffee has teamed up with Jessica of Muthering Heights and Dana Adams of Mrs. MoneySaver to create the Relevant Conference! This is a blogging/social media conference like no other! It combines technical knowlesge and creative inspiration, infused with our faith in Christ!
Relevant is a place to connect kindred hearts; to enjoy sweet and fruitful fellowship; to engage one another in sharing, inspiring, and learning, and to figure out how to integrate our lives fully with our faith and family…all the while glorifying Him amidst this blogging tidal wave.
If you are kindred, you are welcome here. We look forward to being a refuge for a weekend where you will be encouraged, supported, and blessed.
Of, course, at my blog, I always have to be REAL. I’m not perfect. I don’t have it all together. But HE is perfect. HE has it all together, and a plan for my life…. and yours. He also has a plan for your blog! That’s why I love this description of a “kindred spirit”
And you just might be a kindred spirit if…
- You enjoy meaningful conversation over a warm drink
- You are a mommy in the trenches with small blessings
- You are a mommy who has been through the trenches
- You are a woman who seeks after the savior
- You soak up every bit of grace a day offers
- You have struggles in your marriage, but you press on in love
- You are a writer (you are!)
- You need to see that other women don’t have it all together and that you are not alone
- You do this blogging thing
- You’d like to make some money at this blogging thing
- You have really tough days
- You have really great days
- You have laundry piled up
- You have met some true friends online
- You want to be a blessing to your family
You are real. You want to be intentional. You blog.
I am SO proud to be speaking at Relevant 2010, although I feel humbled and a bit out of place among such inspiring and incredible women. I will hopefully be able to share some of my successful, and unsuccessful experiences to help and inspire others. But I also know that I will learn so much myself! I’m really excited to connect with so many online friends that I haven’t met yet, and see others again!

I have to admit that I’m a little scared about attending Relevant ’10. I am one who has been hurt before with Christian Women’s Groups, and retreats/conferences. People, as good as our intentions may be, are not perfect. We have a sinful nature, I know that. But I just KNOW this will be different! And I have a feeling that just as He did with my marriage, God is going to use Relevant to heal that part of me that shut down after that experience. So if that’s you as well ( I know there are some out there). Come to Relevant. Find me. We’ll go through it together.
SO what are your thoughts? Are you going to the conference? Thought about it, but not sure?
