One More Thing Before You Go

I know Lent calls many people to be offline so before you go I wanted to remind you of the "Finding Your Fiat Conference" this summer.

We now have most, if not all, of our speakers lined up and confirmed and it's going to be a wonderful event.

Our headliners include:

Jenna from Blessed is She Ministries



Meg, a self-proclaimed "hobo missionary"



Our Emcee will be Nell, blogger from Whole Parenting.



Our Musical Guest and Breakout Speaker will be, Marie Miller.



Our additional breakout speakers will be:

Annie Tillberg, from Annery at Home.



Nancy Piccione, from The Catholic Post.



Colleen Mitchell, from Blessed Are The Feet and the St. Francis Emmaus Center.



It's a great line up full of women of all ages and interests.  We look forward to having something to interest the young, single woman and the older mother with growing children.  We look forward to welcoming women whose families are all shapes and sizes.  We look forward to welcoming the career gal, the stay at home, the homeschooler and the PTA mom.  We look forward to having a place just for you whether you're an introvert or extrovert, local or traveling.  We look forward to you!

We're about half way to our ticket sales goals, so we wanted to encourage you to reserve your place before you go offline for the season!  It's a smaller gathering and we're filling up fast.

Just a reminder - tickets for both Friday and Saturday are $70.  We also offer a Friday Only option for $35 and a Saturday Only option for $45 to help fit your budget and schedule.

Go here to reserve your spot today!

  1. I subscribe to your blog and to the blogs of some of the other women speakers...so would think that I would be part of your "target audience" for this conference. And you talk about how it is for all women. And yet, the speakers all seem so---shall we say, lacking in diversity? I just wondered if that crossed anyone's mind when planning the conference? I didn't expect to have that reaction, but figured that as event planners, you might want to know you may inadvertently be turning some people off. Good luck!

    1. It really saddens me and the other FYF members to hear this reaction from our readers and audience, please know that it's not our intent. This is a grass-roots project started by a few friends and relying heavily on our own friends and contacts at the moment, but I would like you to know that the speakers list is not final and does not reflect the cultural diversity all the people we've contacted to take part. I hope you'd be pleased to know that we're still in talks with whoever will fill our slot to represent religious life and their cultural diversity just happens to range from the Middle East, Africa and Latin America.

      Our primary focus has been on the life experience of the people asked to participate and we truly hope our attendees can find a speaker or two who shares something of their experiences in life even if our outward appearance differs. Hopefully, if this ministry continues to grow in the coming years our attendees and blog readers will also be a key tool in helping us expand our speaker diversity by introducing us to new contacts, speakers and ministries around the country if not around the world.

      Since we've not finalized all of our slots we would still be happy and grateful for any breakout speaker suggestions.

  2. Wow! I'm really loving the template/theme of this site. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very difficult to get that perfect balance between user appeal. I must say that you've done a amazing job with this by. In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Firefox. HD Wallpapers
