An Influence Conference Giveaway!

I’m teaming up with some lovely blogger friends to give away two (2) tickets to two (2) women for the 2015 Influence Conference! I just went to the conference last month, and it was such an encouragement to me as a follower of Jesus, as a writer, as a wife, and as a mama. I would love for one of my readers to get to go next year! The giveaway runs through next Friday, October 31st.  Read below and then enter at the end of the post!
What is the Influence Network?
TWO lucky readers will win a ticket to the 2015 Influence Conference. The conference is a three day event held in Indianapolis, Indiana at the Westin Hotel. You will meet women from all over the country who are seeking to learn about how to follow Jesus as small business owners, bloggers, and women and how to leverage their influence for His glory! There will be workshops, classes, speakers, coffee, & shopping at the three-day event.
