I made a list of things.

I have not forgotten the blog exists, I promise.

Since getting back from Ecuador, I’ve been going ninety miles a minute trying to prep for two weeks of travel and buying a new car and writing some things and meetings and I HAVE FELT SOME OF THE PANIC.

Forgive me.

But here is what you need to know.

thing 1.

I get to travel a lot and it is awesome. And it is the best way for me to see you. So if you are anywhere NEAR where I am going this spring, please come say hi. Don’t panic about “can I come to that?” or “am I welcome?” — just email or tweet or something me and we’ll work something out.

thing 2.

There are a few books coming out that I think you’ll enjoy:

Home Is Where My People Are by Sophie Hudson… and my word, y’all, she has done it again.

For The Right Reasons by Sean Lowe… I liked it. I have thoughts. But I liked it.

(We’re gonna resurrect TueBook Tuesday next week and I’m going to expound on both of these, so yes. Obviously. I have more to say.)

thing 3.

Speaking of Tuesday, on Tuesday night I’m speaking in Atlanta at Buckhead Church’s Single Series. I know. I don’t talk about being a singlet very much. But when Atlanta asks, I usually say yes. I’m such a sucker for my hometown.

To introduce me to the crowd, they made this cute little video that I kinda love. (It’s below- so subscribers, you may need to click over to see it.)

If you are anywhere near, married or single, you are so welcome to join us Tuesday night. If you have any single friends in the area, definitely let them know about the series. Buckhead Church does a really cool job of intentionally caring for the singles in their community and I think it’s a place worth getting plugged in to if you are single in the city.

thing 4.

I’m sending out a newsletter today (or maybe tomorrow?) and I just wanted to make sure you knew that thing existed. It’s kind of like a VIP list- you know stuff first, you know stuff everyone else doesn’t know, if the blog feels like a bunch of friends at a party, the monthly newsletters feel like dinner around a farm table.

If you’d like to receive it, sign up here.

thing 5.

I’m hooked on Propel Women. Download this month’s magazine and set aside some time this weekend to read it. The direction they are encouraging all of us to go in leadership is right on, I think.

. . . . .

Okay, I think those are my things. Do you have any things to share with me?

    Okay, EVERYBODY is talking about Sophie Hudson’s book. I must have it!

    Also, that video was all kinds of fun. Please post more videos of you. Thanks.

    Thanks for posting the video – it was fun to hear your voice. Wish I could be in Atlanta to hear you speak. I’m almost 39 and still single…..definitely not the plan I had for my life….

    I had the privilege of hearing you in Atlanta this past week. You were awesome, real, Godly, and I loved every minute of it. I am 43, mother of an 18 and 15 yr old son. I was married for 17 years and have been divorced for 4 years now. Am happy to say that I no longer hold off on things waiting for the perfect situation to present itself. Today is a gift and that is why they call it the present! ❤️ Thank you for your message!
