#InfluenceNet Community Groups & About Me

When I joined the Influence Network almost a year ago, I was searching for a community that not only understood the online side of my life (this blog, social media, etc.), but could also relate to some of the "real-life" experiences that were going on, like losing our daughter.  I wasn't looking for someone to fix my problems, but rather walk along side me through the good times & the bad.  And the network was just that for me.

Fast forward to now.  Besides helping with some of the network's social media accounts, I have been asked to help facilitate one of the Influence Network's Community Groups that are about to begin - a group on infant & pregnancy loss.  When I received the initial email, my heart started to beat pretty fast and I turned to God asking, "Why me?  Aren't there other, more capable, women to lead this group?"  But I kept hearing "You can do this!"  So with shaky hands, I replied back saying if they felt I would be a good fit, then I would be honored to navigate through an experience none of us every thought we’d be in.

So because the groups & leaders were officially announced this morning on the Influence Network blog, I thought it would be good to introduce myself to those stopping by for the first time (and re-introduce myself to the "loyals") by directing them to my about me page* and share an insight into what makes me, me.

If you're new, please say hello.  I'd love to hop over to your space & get to know you too.

And if you're not new, please still say hello!  I'm so thankful for those who are walking through this life with me, whether online or off.

  1. Hello hello :) I need to look into these groups. Sounds like a fun way to connect with others!

  2. Yes, you should! Sign ups are closed until May, but they have groups for moms, business, grief, and you can even suggest a group topic. I'm definitely interested to see how they play out!
