I can't tell you how excited I am to introduce (like she NEEDS an introduction) Blog Sugar 11's keynote speaker, Meg Duerksen.
Meg's blog, WHATEVER, is widely adored and a favorite of many. She has the ability to make you feel at home, normal and happy, with just a few words and several colorful pictures. Meg's life (and blog, by extension) is a place where you can grab a cup of coffee, be inspired but still feel like you can relate to the person on the other side of the laptop.
Here is a small snippet of her blog journey. We can't wait for her to share more with us on September 25th!
* i started blogging secretly one night around midnight in february of 2007.
i didn't want anyone to know in case i was awful at it.
i used my nick name instead of my real name so that my friends wouldn't find it. :)
but God had much different plans for my blog.
and it took me a few years to see that.....but He showed me.
* i want my little place in this great big world to be a happy one.
i want to show God's glory.
i want to bring Him joy.
i want to be an encouragement.
i want to be real.
i want people feel normal when they read it.
i want to BE love to others from God.
and with the blog i get to do that to a whole bunch of people at once and that is SO COOL!
* what are you doing with your little space?
where is God calling you? what is He preparing YOU for in your space in this big world?
* "Do everything without grumbling or arguing,so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky 16 as you hold firmly to the word of life." Phil 2: 14- 15
