As I type this, I am participating in a woman's conference. I won a free ticket from a blog giveaway, and my dear husband is managing the house for these three days so that I can curl up in the bed and participate. This is an online conference, using the coolest technology to connect me with women all over the world, and speakers who are able to display powerpoint slides on my screen, as well as live video of themselves giving their presentations. Off to one side is a little area where all the ladies participating can type in their comments and participate in the discussions.
The kids are downstairs helping Ken with a few carefully preplanned projects, Hollie is completing a challenge, and I'm soaking up every second of this conference planned for renewal, refreshing, and spurring us gals on to greatness. This is sponsored by A Woman Inspired. Check them out for other online conferences, including past ones they've archived for mp3 downloads and discussion forums. What a great Mothers Day gift for me (thanks, Ken, for arranging this time for me), and a pleasure to be able to take advantage of technology in this way!
