This post was written to promote the Heart To Home 2015 Women's Conference, as well as to enter a contest with Family Christian to win a free VIP pass. All opinions are honest and are my own.
I've been writing this Homemaking blog for almost seven years now, and I don't think I've ever been as excited about an opportunity to promote homemaking as much as I am about the Heart To Home conference taking place next month! Family Christian, official sponsor of the conference, is sending one extremely blessed blogger to the conference with a VIP pass! I can't even fathom how awesome it would be to meet some of the Duck Dynasty cast, hang out at Willie's Diner, and be blessed by the corporate worship and special teaching that each guest will experience. Oh, and did I mention I'd have a car trip there and back? That means cranking up the music loud and sipping on sweet tea---all by myself! Sometimes the best thing you can do as a homemaker is leave home for a couple days!
Our family has lived in Arkansas for 14 months now, and we're already feeling like born and bred Southerners! We have formed relationships with so many people who have made us feel loved, welcomed, and part of the family. One reason I'm totally looking forward to the Heart To Home conference is that it's hosted by some of the South's best hostesses: the Robertson ladies of Duck Dynasty, along with author, speaker, and radio host, Dr. Joneal Kirby. I just know I'm going to come away from this feeling super motivated and ready to bring a refreshed attitude to my family and my homemaking. What better place to learn from the best!
As a brand new Southern lady, I'm already feeling that spirit of homemaking and hospitality that the women of the South pride themselves on. There are so many aspects of my home that I want to continue to nurture and grow; but more than that, it's experiences like the Heart To Home conference that give me the opportunity to nurture and grow my own home-focused heart. The women of Duck Commander are excellent examples of the kind of godly woman I want to be: committed to family, centered at home, graceful, humorous, and not afraid to jump in and get a little muddy from time to time!
If I'm not able to attend the conference in person, I'll still be able to get in on all the encouraging sessions via live simulcast. Make sure to check it out in case you and your friends want to make your own ladies weekend centered around this excellent conference, as well.
I'd love to hear if any of you plan on attending the conference or watching it live. Let me know and we'll do some follow up on our favorite topics.
