A few weeks ago, I joined The Influence Network, a network of women from many different walks of like all brought together by one common thread-- Jesus. Today, a bunch of ladies are linking up together to share a little bit about ourselves, and to put faces with names. So, happy to "meet" you all!

Three little tidbits about me:
1. I'm a sucker for anything with mint in it. Like, eat-a-whole-sleeve-of-thin-mints-in-one-sitting-without-even-realizing-it lover. Sometimes I look down and am disappointed that there are none left, but then embarrassed that I just inhaled a disgusting amount of cookies.
2. I crack really cheesy jokes, and I usually think they are hilarious even when no one else does. And I can't stop laughing. I'm basically an old man.
3. I have SUPER curly hair, but I usually straighten it. After Caroline was born, the curl went away? It's slowly coming back. Did this happen to any of y'all? So weird to me.
One valuable thing I've gained from the Network:
Only one?! To be honest, I am consistently blown away by the network of woman I've met. I feel like I'm not alone in many of the areas I thought only I struggled. It's so encouraging to hear other women are dealing with the same things, or are in the same life stage that I am. Because I am a stay-at-home mom, I feel like I can still connect with other women around me, even if I can't physically get out of the house to make a lunch date or a coffee date. I still have the same type of realness online. I have also met a few friends that I feel could be life time friends the more we get to know each other. Also, to know that we are all there for the same common purpose, glorifying God and making His name great and known is a hit out of the park for me. That is ultimately my heart's desire and to have other women running along side of me, sans competition, is one of the most encouraging things in my life right now. I only wish I would have joined a few months back instead of waiting until February!
