Every year, I leave the Influence Conference feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, not only for this space (although I did spruce things up a bit around here) but in my life. My passions are charged and my focus is sharpened. I left Influence with a desire to live my "Life on a Mission" to make much of Jesus even more than I had before. There is something about gathering with 300+ women who get the internet and Jesus in the same way you do for a whole weekend that allows God's voice to be heard more clearly. I think anytime we take away from the busyness to really tune into His voice, He will speak. And boy did He speak. This space grew quiet during our crazy, life-changing summer; but fall is here and the leaves are changing (somewhere I'm sure, cause they sure as heck aren't changing here!) and I'm ready to pour some time back into this blog and into it's ministry. This fall, I felt a pull to participate in The Nester's 31 days of blogging. This will be my first year joining in and if I'm honest, it's a bit intimidating! The idea is that you commit to writing/sharing something every day for the next 31 days, all pertaining to the same subject.

About a year and a half ago, I wrote this mini-series on Life on a Mission - what it means, who it's for, etc. - and I thought it was about time I expounded a bit more. So, for the next 31 days I will be writing on the topic of how we can start living our Lives on a Mission to make much of Jesus and little of ourselves and how we can start doing that TODAY. Each Wednesday I will offer up a challenge for us all: a tangible way we can live our lives on a mission to glorify God and serve others right now and I would love for you to join me! Let's do this thing together!
