Heart to Home Conference

by The Park Wife on January 16, 2015

As the owner of The Women Bloggers, over 3000 WOMEN bloggers strong, I have been blessed with some truly amazing women that teach me something new about life and myself daily.  However, the balancing act of being a help meet to my amazing husband, a homeschool mom, and running these networks has been the greatest lesson into who I am and who I want to be. And, to be honest, a little overwhelming.

I have a lot of conference options in the social media world in 2015 and I actually put one on~ our 5th Annual Arkansas Women Bloggers University.  I am also scheduled to speak  at several conferences; first up, the keynote at Arkansas Women in Ag, helping women tell their farm stories through blogs and social media. Y’all know I love farmers, farm wives and of course, promoting Taste Arkansas and Arkansas Grown.

HOWEVER, over the past few weeks I have been yearning to be surrounded in real life, in one place, with women who are seeking to have more of Him and less of themselves in their hearts, minds, worlds. A place where I can be encouraged and feel that I AM ENOUGH, I am His masterpiece just as I am, that being a mom is an amazing calling. And, a place where Miss Kay hugs me and tells me why I can not get my shrimp grits right.

Heart to Home Conference

Yes, I am going to Heart to Home Conference in West Monroe. The conference will feature the Women of Duck Commander (I wrote about my families love for the Robertson’s in a post promoting their Season 4 Premier), Dr. Joneal Kirby (who I can’t wait to meet and soak up her knowledge, love, and heart for the Lord and women), and then there is Tracey Eyster. Oh Tracey, the creator and host of MomLifeToday.com will be the emcee. If you are one of my Arkansas Women Blogger gals, you will remember Tracey as one of our speakers from the 2013 conference in Little Rock.  I could gush on and on about how Tracey’s nuggets of wisdom were given to me right when the Lord planned and how her heart for supporting and encouraging me and so many women has made all the difference. Check out the videos of Tracey interviewing me for MomLife Today over in the sidebar of my blog. This woman. When I think of her, it just makes my heart happy.


I know it is going to an amazing weekend. I will get to tour Duck Commander, eat at Willie’s Diner, be encouraged, rejuvenated, listening and learning what the Word says, delving deeper into this amazing job I have been given. For I do know,  much is at stake.

If you are going to the Heart to Home conference, let me know.  I would love to meet up with you and hug your neck! Of course, there will be a lot of Instagramming and Tweeting happening from my end.

A wife and mother, it is who I am,

Note: I purchased my own ticket to this event, I have not received anything in return for this post. This is about my heart for women and using the gifts I have been given to shine His light.

I love Tracey Eyster and everything she does at Family Life and Mom Life. Great messages that people need to hear and put into action. Have fun at the conference! It’ll be awesome I’m sure!

I know, just sitting across the table from her gives me comfort, confidence, and joy!

Looks like an amazing time, wish I could go! Have a great and rejuvenating and awe inspiring time!

this sounds like a wonderful conference! I wish I could be there! I’ll be spending my weekend tucked away from the world at an adoptive momma retreat…listening to God and being refreshed. I wish I could be in two places at once but I can’t wait to hear about your weekend at H2H conference.

The Park Wife January 27, 2015 at 7:49 am

Jenny, I will pray for your rejuvenation, joy, and focus (please pray for mine!)

This would be such a blessing. Fortunately for me, I will be a very willing observer that weekend at Perfect Girl’s first cheer meet! How did she grow up so fast? Have fun and share the inspiration.
