Woah, I cannot believe that in 10 days Rainier and I are hopping onto several planes and heading to Indianapolis for the Influence Conference! Even though I've been before, I'm still a little nervous. Incredibly excited, but nervous - how will things go with bringing a 5-month-old? We shall see.
Today the women who are attending the conference are doing a little "meet and greet" to get acquainted before we all meet in person. We're sharing a recent picture of ourselves, what we're most excited about, and what we can't leave home without. Here goes:
1. I'm Mackenzie, and this is me and my hubby Brian. We've got 2 boys - Nicholas who's almost 3, and Rainier who is 5-months, and coming with me to the conference! Brian will be holding down the fort with Nicholas while I'm gone :)
2. I am most excited about connecting with women! I'm going to hug the heck out of the Thrive Moms team gals, I can't wait to spend time with other women in ministry, spend time in the prayer room, and hang out with other mamas in the Mom's Suite! And I also cannot wait to worship and learn together. The refreshment and spurring on that comes with worship and listening to inspiring men and women, can't wait!
3. I can't leave without...all of Rainier's baby gear? (How do you fit stuff for yourself and your baby in a small suitcase? HOW?!?!) I'll be that tiny girl with a baby on her hip and a overflowing diaper bag, probably sweating from lugging all our stuff around but still excited to see everyone!
