So...I just returned from The Influence Conference and it was just SO much fun. I have had to sleep for a couple days to catch up...but after my two days of naps, I am sitting on what God did in me this weekend. There were so many wonderful speakers and women, but I have to say those that stuck out to me were Lara Casey and Rebecca of Better Life Bags...Why? Because their story was steeped with the term FOLLOW. Neither one of them had "formal" training in the path God took them down, they simply followed GOD's prompting and desire for their lives and their careers. It is SO very cool to see just what God can do when we trust him and abandon our fears and just follow him.
I have to say that I only slept about 30 minutes on Friday night..seriously not kidding...so I was just stupid tired on Saturday....ask my assistant Paige, I introduced myself to Shauna Niequist by saying "Hi, I'm Nicole, I don't read" Ha ha ha , what I was trying to say was that I hadn't yet read her books, but I had listened to her at the WillowCreek Global Leadership Summit...but it just came out stupid. OH, I LAUGH :)
But the beauty that God perfomed in my tiredness was that I was so completely exhausted that I simply prayed that he would connect me with women, that HE would cross my path with those that he wanted to speak with and listen to. And guys did he ever show up. I am still really sitting in awe of the connections he made this weekend and the work that he did in my heart as I tiredly SAT, stopped STRIVING, and FOLLOWED him.
Guys, I am so very excited for what lies ahead with Two Little Fish and for the connections and relationships that God is bringing me out of this ministry...Did you know we are a ministry? We are actually a NON-PROFIT organization that makes Children's Bedding, YES, that means we give 100% away...This set is one of my all time favorites..ALL of the fabric was hand stamped and dyed by village women in Africa, then sent directly to us to make into this Uber cute bedding set for little Adara.
There were so many of you that I didn't get to meet...I would love to connect ...comment, find us on twitter or IG.
Much love to you!
