Wife to a man of true integrity, mom to two extraordinary buckaroos. I live on a state park, wondering everyday how I got here, but loving every minute of it.

Heart to Home Conference

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.


Blissdom 2013 ~ The Park Wife

I, along with my AWB counterparts and friends,  have put on two fantastic blog conferences in Arkansas, yet I had never been to any other blog conference until I invited myself to go to NonCon with my sweet friends Stephanie McCratic of Evolved Mommy (yes, and social media maven for Country Outfitter ) and Amy James of Our Everyday Dinners. It rocked, mostly because I was able to get to know these two wonderful women, and well, yes there was Ree. Uh huh, we got to hang out with The Pioneer Woman.


I know, a bit weird that I put on two conferences and had not ever been to one, but I think that actually helped as I did not have any preconceived notions of what I was “supposed” to do, how it was “supposed” to be done, and on and on.

Our Arkansas Women Blogger Unplugged Conference is considered a small conference with about 75 women bloggers in our state attending last year. One of the wonderful things about our conference is that we have built a true community of women who have become friends in real life and help each other, without judgement, to tell their stories. My heart is so happy thinking of all these women who I consider friends.

With all that said, I am over the moon because I am going to Blissdom 2013 in Dallas in March!

This is My First Bliss!

Woohoo, and yes, I am hitching a ride with the extraordinary Evolved Mommy.

Are you going to Blissdom? If so, I would love to meet you ~ look for me!

A Love Story for the Month of Love

Did you ever read The Park Wife & The Ranger ~ The Love Story? I really do not know why there is not a book made from this. Hallmark Channel has not called either. Amazing.

If you are sitting around with a  box of chocolates, a Dr. Pepper, and there is nothing on your DVR worth watching, check it out. Oh wait, that is what I am doing.

Anyway, go check it out.
