Next week I (Gloria) will be flying out with my family to Orlando, Florida. Twenty-five hours after we board the plane in Dubai we’ll be checking in to our hotel in Orlando. It will be quite the intercontinental trip!
But it’s going to be worth every single “Are we there yet?” and every adventure in airplane bathrooms with a potty training preschooler.
I’m excited to attend the first ever women’s conference hosted by The Gospel Coalition. I’ve been looking forward to this for quite some time now– Mommy needs a recess!
I can’t decide what I am most excited about. Many DK readers have mentioned that they will be in attendance, too. I can’t wait to meet you! The conference schedule is full to the brim of fantastic teaching. I’ll be doing some semi-live blogging from the sessions for DK readers. This article by our friend Luma Simms describes our blogging aspirations in more details. I’m also planning to bring the session content into discussions on this blog via multiple follow-up posts throughout the summer.
On Friday night of the conference I’ll be sharing alongside Lydia Brownback on a panel with Collin Hansen about the subject of women writing. Here are the details:
Women Writing: Perspectives on the World of Publishing – Online and Off
