This past weekend I was the keynote speaker at a brand new conference held here in Nashville called UtopYA. It was organized by Janet Wallace, and I can’t even begin to tell you how wonderful it was. I’m sure posts will go up from the attendees, here’s one from DB Graves, and you can check out more about the conference itself here. All I can say is that I smiled from the time I left my house until I got home, and then when I got home and told my husband about all the sweet faces I saw in that crowd, I cried.
You might have seen me put the call out on Twitter last week for help with an encouragement project. It was for this speech, and I spent most of that day crying as well. Over forty authors responded to ask how they could help – in less than six hours.
I love this community. Sure, it’s not always shiny perfect, but last week restored a lot of hope for me.
Here’s the speech, and you’ll find the encouragement project within.
Everyone has their own story.
Thanks for letting me share, friends!
