The Titus 2:1 Conference was a blast. It’s hard for those outside of blogland to “get” that you can truly be friends with someone you’ve never met in real life, but it is possible, and so much fun when you get to finally hug a few of those necks or share a meal together.
As the photographer, I heard not only the keynote sessions, but also got to pop in to all of the breakout sessions — which was great! On the down side, I missed part of every session — but still got to hear plenty of good stuff!
I didn’t take many notes, but these are a few little nuggets of wisdom I picked up along the way…
“Read the word, learn it, understand it and apply it to all areas of our lives…
A biblical worldview is important because it brings focus to a child’s life and gives them direction.”
“Do not allow yourself to be intimidated and DO NOT GIVE UP!”
“Twitter is a place to: Connect; Share; Build; Support; Learn.”
“If you wouldn’t do it offline [i.e: talk only about yourself, etc] then you shouldn’t do it online.”
“Homeschooling allows for schedules to flex with life…
You really can trust your children. They know what they enjoy.”
“Your blog should fill a void, not add more noise.”
“Keep first things first, look for distractions, have accountability and review; keep your time yours.”
“Is the way we’re living lining up with Who we’re loving?”
Next time I go to a conference in a city I’ve never been to before, I will arrive a day early or stay a day after to explore; all I saw on this trip was the inside of the airport and the hotel! I feel like I wasted a chance to see the sights in D.C.
I’m hoping to attend again next May – this time in Chicago! Are you considering going? Sure would be fun to meet more blogland friends! 😉
