They Invited Me Over and Then They Changed Their Name and Moved…

By February 7, 2012General

For the past couple of years, I’ve attended an AMAZING conference called Relevant. It’s a blogging conference for Christian women.

 (Funny story: My friend Stephanie (above left), who was about 6 months pregnant at the time, sat next to a woman on a plane who thought Stephanie said LOGGING conference and proceeded to go on for several minutes about the merits of the logging industry. I learned to enunciate the B really well after that story.)

Moving on.

Relevant has been a highlight of every October for me since 2010. It’s SO much fun to meet “friends” for the first time, hear their voices and see them in 3D!

 The 2012 Speakers

Well, this year I have the honor of speaking at Relevant. Except…it’s not Relevant anymore. Today, Sarah Mae and Jessica are announcing that Relevant is getting a name makeover. It’s now called… wait for it…
