  1. oh I am getting soo excited about this event…. I am already registered and I’m daily watching out for new information…. I’m trying to save some funds to purchase as beach box…. working on that …. lord willing he will provide…. Can’t wait to see the final video… I tried to submit one but failed to upload…. Still like I said I’m so excited, I hope all of my friends can come…..

  2. I lost a guy friend in December to a stroke and it’s kind of kept me under for a while. I’m beginning to make friends again and spend more times with ladies. So this will be good to listen and read the comments and just listen to how ladies feel about their lives and about Jesus. I guess a prayer request is that even though I’m doing this (in) RL alone that outside in real time I’ll make a friend or two in the coming days. Thank you. ~ <3 ~

  3. I don’t know why I’ve hesitated on registering….but I have. Today, I signed up and bought my ticket. I’m not sure what I’m hoping for. Maybe a connection with someone who has walked the same path as me.

    [Husband a pastor. Not serving full-time anymore. Strange disconnect from all things ministry!]
    But then again…I might be the only one like me.

  4. Okay, I did it… I signed up to watch in the comfort of my home sometime that weekend in between caring for my kids and hubby coming home from business trip!!

  5. i’m praying that women would feel confident to attend a local #inRL meetup. and that they make connections with other women and develop solid friendships with one another! i pray they feel loved in a very special way. i pray the hostesses demonstrate the love of Christ. i pray the #inRL meetup starts a domino effect of women encouraging & blessing other women inRL!

  6. this online thing … this blogging thing … this finding connection, from far away places … has so changed my heart & my life … I’m prayN … that many in my community will come to understand that HE (Jesus) is the connector, the O so sweet Glue.

    He [Jesus] is before all things, and in him all things hold together. — Colossians 1:17

  7. I just registered and I’m so excited! 🙂 Going to spread the word! Thanks so much for doing this!!!!
    Love and blessings,

  8. I tweeted ~~!!
    Praying that my sister will join me for the (in)RL conference ~ also that God speaks to me about who else he wants to join us ~

  9. I moved to a new city about a month ago, the 1 thing I am consistently hoping and praying for is that I can find a meet up nearby and meet amazing ladies who are local, love the Lord, and come together to worship. 🙂 (I tweeted too!)

  10. I registered last night. There is no one else interested in my area for a meetup as right now, but I did start a meetup group. Hoping to connect with some women in my small community. I think this will be an amazing event! Yesterday I began to feel a tug at my heart. I know that God wants me to be more, do more for Him. I pray that this is one step closer to that deeper relationship with Him.

  11. I mentioned it at the Twitter party too, but things were flyin’ by so I’ll repeat it. Most all of us at the meet up I am hosting are bloggers. We know each other as bloggers, and as friends. Being believers in Christ is a different element; one we don’t talk about in this group often. I want to get to know each other as Christian Women, not just bloggers or even friends.

  12. Im a single mother and this is my gift to myself. Im stepping outside of my box with this!! And Im uber excited!!!! Heeey(snap) yep Im a Sistah!! lol..May His grace abound. 🙂

  13. My name is listed as one of the winners of the make up bag. I don’t remember getting an email about how to claim the gift. Please let me know. Thanks so much.

  14. I am praying that this will give me and other women in my small community a chance to make new christian friendships, as well as nuture old friendships.
    I also see my name listed as a winner and am sooo excited, can’t wait to hear from them.

  15. THANK YOU FOR THE FABU BAG!!!! What a blessing. What a whisper. I would like to reconnect with God, you know like a marriage can be good, but a marriage retreat brings things deeper/better/livelier? I want that!

  16. woot, woot… I am a winner!! 🙂 Thanks so much! I was so excited to get the email today!! can’t wait to get the tshirt… and the bag… and the connections in ONE MONTH!!!

  17. Yay ! I am a winner .. love the bag , thank you soooo much … can’t wait to receive the bag and my T-shirt !! Praise the Lord , always !!

  18. Wow! I won! I was so surprised to open this e-mail! Thank you for your generous spirits. I already feel blessed because I’m going to a local event. I also feel blessed because this time I get to GO to an event instead of hosting one! I am gifted with hospitality and moreoften than not end up hosting events such as this one. I was so pleased to find that one was already in the works in my area. I’m looking so forward to meeting just some of the amazing women that are a part of this network. 🙂 Again, thank you for all your hard work in putting the event together and getting the word out. I think I’ll send out a tweet right about now! 🙂
