Just can't wait to get on the road again.
My apologies to Willie Nelson for borrowing his song. But I really can't wait to get on the road again!
As you read this, I'm probably in the air somewhere between North Texas and Chicago en route to the Catholic Marketing Network Tradeshow AND Catholic Writer's Guild Live Conference in the Chicago area and I couldn't be more excited.
This will be my third conference but, since I tend to go every other year, my fourth year as a member of the Catholic Writer's Guild. The CWG has been HUGE in my journey of becoming a writer, speaker, and blogger. I owe them a lot and I still have a lot to learn from them. Hence my attendance at the conference.
For fun I'm also going to be playing the #CMNSelfie Scavenger Hunt game hosted by Erin McCole Cupp. So, in the next several days you'll be seeing lots of images of me on Twitter (follow me @TheLauraBNelson) with random people, paper popes, and conference swag. Feel free to play along with the Home Version of the Game at #NOTatCMNselfie. Who says you have to be present to win? (And by "win" I mean, not-get-a-prize-but-get-the-satisfaction-of-collecting-all-the-items-on-the-list.)
I'll be spending some extra time in prayer this week at the conference. (Catholic conferences are like that.) And, I'll be including my blog readers on my prayer list. If you have any prayer intentions you'd like me to include, tweet me or leave me a blog comment and I'll be sure to include you specifically in my prayers.
While we're talking about prayer, say one for me this week as I travel, learn, and discern God's will for me. I really appreciate it.
