or at least I like to think so...
Hey guys...gals...beauties of all kind. I'm Julie. I'm saying that, assuming that I am not yet so influential that you
already know who I am, but that you want to learn who I am, because you are here thanks to the AMAZING
Influence Network! I attended the Influence Conference last year and was blown away by the Jesus portrayed in
so many different avenues by so many creative minds and desperate hearts for Jesus.
I am forever thankful to these amazing ladies heading this network up and they have so inspired me to be
INTENTIONAL with my blog and my life for that matter. I still write my style, my life, my thoughts...
but those moments when I want to shrink
away from blog world or from life in general, I remember, it's not always about what I want. It's not always a choice.
My life, my gifts, my words were given for a purpose. It's not mine to say what and when and why.
But it's up to the one who created them and created me.
And as far as the network goes, honestly I have yet to make a lot of use of the resources available online, but that
word "intentional" will stick with me as long as I live. Thanks to the first ever Influence Conference!
I am not 100% I am going in 2013, but I am hoping to. There are a few circumstances and decisions in my life being
processed so we will see how it all plays out over the next 3-4 months. But I DO hope to see you there.
A few other random things about me:
I think in poetry form. Seriously. When a topic of discussion that I have had or want to have or write about is heavy on
my mind, my brain starts forming poems. Not the deep rants of a forlorn artist, but more like that childish rhyming wisdom
of a Dr. Suess Book. I'm weird (and cool) like that.
I currently run 7 facebook accounts. My personal one, which comes and goes as I get annoyed with people or myself.
My blog fb. Our Church fb. Our Youth Ministry fb. Our Womens Ministry fb. Our Youth Conference fb.
And I also oversee my son's facebook.
I also have SEVEN kids between the ages of two and nine come in and out of my house every week, sometimes all at the same time.
My own three kids. Two of them are in school. My four year old stays home with me.
We have another five yr old & eight yr old that come over before and after school on select days. And I have another four year old that comes over after school one day a week. And a two year old that I watch two full days a week.
During the summer, this of course multiplies as none of the school kids are IN school, but AT MY HOUSE!
So, yes there are days when I have SEVEN kids at a time. This does not include when my kids just want to have friends over just for fun.
Like they did last Sunday.
This explains why my house is never clean.
This (the SEVEN facebooks and SEVEN kids) also explains why I haven't made much use of the Influence Network.
Blogging in itself is about all the online time I can manage...and even that's been a little sketchy lately.
So, enough about me. What's your story?
