Priscilla Shirer, Speaking engagements

.mom conference!

I can’t believe this event is sneaking up as fast as it is, but the .mom conference in Birmingham is just a few short weeks away. If you don’t know much about it, here’s the scoop. It’s a conference for moms of all ages and stages, and has speakers such as myself, Priscilla Shirer, Angela Thomas, and Vicki Courtney. There are some FANTASTIC breakout sessions with women who are all along the road of parenting, and I cannot wait to sit in on some of them. Click here

for the event’s home page for specifics.

It’s so cool to have a conference that is geared toward us moms and that offers such a range of ages, issues, questions, and so on. I think it’s going to be a blast.

Want to know another reason it’s going to be a blast?

Guess who is hosting this little soiree? Umm, could it be two of the funniest women ever to land in the blogosphere? I think yes.

Boomama and Big mama are our official hosts. I know, I know. It’s off the charts.

SO, if you are already planning on coming, I can’t wait to squeeze your neck. If you haven’t gotten tickets but you would like to come, here’s your chance!!!! Just leave any old comment on this post and you will enter yourself into a giveaway…are you ready for this???

I’m giving away 5 sets of tickets!!!!! So you have 5 chances to win a ticket for you and a friend to the .mom conference. 

If you think you could get to Birmingham the weekend of Sept. 23-24, go ahead and thrown in your comment!!! We would love to have you join us 🙂

If you want to go ahead and buy a ticket, just click here and you’ll be taken over there to do so.

I am so looking forward to this, and I hope you’ll join us!!!

*****UPDATE – WINNERS!*****

    Angie, I loved hearing your story in Atlanta at WOF this weekend.  Our group had three people not be able to make it at the last minute.  I was able to find two to replace them, but not a third.  On the way down, on of the ladies sister was saying how she wished she could come and wanted to know if we could get her a ticket – WE HAD ONE!  So she came.  She had been a pregnant teen who gave birth only 5 months into the pregnancy and was able to hear your story.  God had planned that ticket just for her I believe!   I would love to hear come to Birmingham!

    Never been to a women conference ever, would like to come and this sounds like it would be a perfect one for me, being a Mom of 2 teenage girls and a Wife of a workaholic.

    Just attended women of faith here in Atlanta! Y’all rocked our sox!!! 🙂 I had no idea your blog had moved so I’ve been missing out. Will you let MaryMary know that I am SO glad they brought their girls…God used one of them twirling during worship to speak to my spirit about my own baby girl. He is SO good!!!

    As I read down through these comments, I am in awe with how God is using you. You are very blessed to have a supportive husband. I came across your blog about a year ago in an unorthodox fashion – initially because I found Selah’s very first release (“Be Still my Soul”) in my car unexpectedly. I was going through great difficulty and remembered how much I loved listening to this tape years ago. You see, it was a cassette because at the time I was driving around a Suburban (equipped with only a cassette player) full of boys to baseball games. All these years later, I needed to hear those songs again, and my car, now more modernized with a CD player, also has a cassette player.  After listening for a week, I got curious about the group and dicovered there was a different female singer. That curiosity led to finding out about the sorrow from two losses of babies – Audrey Caroline and Luke. I couldn’t help but notice these occurred very close to the same time one of my strong, athletic sons (19) was struck with cancer. Somehow I felt a connection with your loss because of the timing – so I started reading your blog. I attended WOF last year and submitted a manuscript in their writing contest and thought you would be a great addition to the speaking team when I heard about it – and you are! I’m sure the “Mom” conference will be a blessing to those able to attend. God bless you.

    I along with many of our women from our church will be at this conference. I would love to win these tickets to be able to bring some more ladies with me. I think what you are doing is awesome. As a mom who has miscarried and lost a quad pregnancy, I find your story inspiring. I am reading your book now and am so glad you took time to share your story and heart with us! God Bless you and can’t wait for this amazing conference!

    As a SAHM of three sweet kiddos who are a true blessing and a wife of an associate pastor, this conference would be such a blessing. My best friend lived in Birmingham and just found out she’s expecting her first baby after 2 years of praying and hoping so it would be a blessing to her to attend with me!!!

    Thanks for sharing this opportunity, you are such an example of the love of our Savior!! Hoping to hug your neck too!!!

    Angie! I would love to attend the conference! I’m a single mom of 4 and feel the need for some encouragement and wisdom. Doing it alone is not working! I will pray about how to get to Birmingham as God has put this on my heart to go. He will provide. Thanks for all you do for women and thanks for following God’s urging in your heart to serve. Love you, girl! A blast from the past – Regina Yeager

    I read “I Will Carry You” and loved it, admiring your bravery in sharing your story and blessed that you shared your precious Audrey Caroline with the rest of the world.  I passed the book along to two friends who had lost babies as well.  This past weekend, I was again blessed by you as I heard you speak at the Women of Faith conference in Atlanta.  I cannot believe you struggle with stage fright, as you were an entertaining and enjoyable speaker – you kept us all laughing when we weren’t shedding “deranged gopher” tears with you!  Please continue to share your insightful self with the world; your fears are so unfounded!  I would consider it a triple-blessing to win tickets to the .mom conference and hear you speak once more.  Blessings!

    Oh MAN, I’m not sure if the ticket giveaway is still open, but I would just flip if I won!  I’ve got butterflies!  It sounds like it’s going to be wonderful!

    This Mom of 2 precious girls feels like I could definitely use the Mom Conference. I keep putting off goings to events because of being a Mom. This one is close enough to Louisiana for a quick road trip! Thanks for the chance.
