Choose Joy Conference
Speaking at a conference.
Honestly, I still have straight up PTSD from last year's Blog Sugar. Not joking. I sort of panic when even thinking about that day. It was rough. I know that God used it, but it was not my favorite.
Sometimes it isn't about you, or about your fears, issues, and drama.
It's about using your experiences, your journey, your heart, and setting aside the fears, issues, and drama.
When Emmy shared with me her dreams and vision for the Choose Joy Conference, I wept. I wished there was something like it ten years ago. When she asked me if I would consider being a speaker, without hesitation, I said yes.
I will be sharing my heart and chatting about infant and pregnancy loss.
Sigh. I know. So hard.
If anything the past ten years have taught me, is there is so much joy, hope, and healing in the midst of deep pain. I feel ill equipped to share, useless to speak, but I am willing to be there. To try. To see God show up. To bring the comfort, wisdom, and encouragement that only he can.
The conference will be a time of happiness, tears, information, support, and growth.
It will be a time of JOY.
So if you, or anyone you know are walking through infertility, loss, or pursuing adoption, I would love to see you there.
Tickets go on sale today, at a special early bird rate.
I will be there. Unfit, willing, nervous, most likely throwing up, definitely crying.
Using my story in whatever way God would have it.
Because my story isn't mine. It is His story.
