Design 4 Living 2010 Review

Pin It Now!
I had a great time at the Design 4 Living Conference!
Friday night before the conference started we had a beautiful and delicious speaker dinner. It is so cool that other people have the gift of making things look pretty. Check out our table setting.

Friday night Elisa Morgan (former president of MOPS) brought it with her message regarding Mary of Bethany - "She did what she could." And I'm not just saying that because we are about the same height (she was wearing heels).

Comedian Kerri Pomarolli was absolutely hilarious. She had us all cracking up! And I'm not saying that because we are about the same height.

Debbie Alsdorf and her team put on a great conference. I think there were about 1000 women who attended.
And Debbie (who encouraged me to write my book) is also my psuedo fan club president, literary agent, and publicist. Thanks Debbie!

And to top things off my friend Kathy, served as my "shadow." Apparently when you speak at a conference you have to have someone follow you around to make sure you have everything you need -- like chocolate, special water, Scooby snacks, and stuff like that. I made Kathy call me J-Lo and she didn't even mind.

The worship band was awesome! These two beauties are my babysitters!

When I get a copy of it, I'll post my talk about Life in the Motherood and how to take care of Mom in the midst of it. In the meantime, if you want some motherhood encouragement, you can listen to my MOPS talk "You were made for this." It's up at the right hand side of my blog.
And get your free sneak peek (5 whole chapters) of Totally Desperate Mom: Keepin' Real in the Motherhood.
