You Peeps In?

Have you heard? There's a little bit of noise around a certain weekend in October. October 1-2 to be exact. It's KINDA a really big deal and you're pretty much invited. It's


It's for everyone who loves orphans basically. :-)

Adoptive families, pre-adoptive families, fostering families, church leadership, college kids with a passion for social justice, people who just plain love orphans and the poor. We will get together with AMAZING speakers, dynamic worship (led by the one and only Aaron Ivey), tons of informative breakout sessions, meet ups with your fave bloggers and speakers (ahem, Tom David and well, me among others :-)

When it all boils down to it, it'll be a weekend full of crazy people who love Jesus and love orphans where we get to learn, grow and party together. A weekend where people won't look at you like you're crazy for thinking a dossier is the most precious possession and know how hard "the wait" is and actually (gasp) WANT to talk about sex trafficking, clean water, and food for orphans!

You just have to be there!!! I will be and would LOVE to see you there. You know me, turning any opportunity into a reunion of strangers :-) and a major party!!!

So, are you in???? Come on, you know you want to! Drive if you have to (I promise, cross country drives aren't THAT bad!)

PS They are actually letting me lead a breakout session! I'm pretty sure it'll be about being a warriorgirl and connecting to other warriorgirls! I'm SUPER excited! Tom and Vince from HopeChest will also be speaking and some of our fave bloggers will be there - check out the featured blogger page on the conference site!

I soooo want to be there, but am leaving for Ethiopia just a few days later and can't swing both trips.

Are you planning to go to the mid-atlantic session in November - it's in Hershey and Tom is also speaking there - I can most likely get to PA and WOULD love love love to see a bunch of warrior girls there!

I need a warrior girl fix. bad.

So it looks like I might be able to come! :-) So what are the requirements for being a featured blogger? Would love to get in on it if it's not to late.

Do we have Warrior Girl shirts? Cuz we should!

JULIE!!!! CAN YOU COME?????? That would SOOOOO ROCK!! COME! COME! COME! Erin... I am still in mourning. I want shirts too!

I think it should say Warrior Girls on the front- maybe a pic of Africa with this in little writing in the pic of Africa Amos 5:21-24 (The Message)

21-24"I can't stand your religious meetings.
I'm fed up with your conferences and conventions.
I want nothing to do with your religion projects,
your pretentious slogans and goals.
I'm sick of your fund-raising schemes,
your public relations and image making.
I've had all I can take of your noisy ego-music.
When was the last time you sang to me?
Do you know what I want?
I want justice—oceans of it.
I want fairness—rivers of it.
That's what I want. That's all I want.

I can see it! Where did Erica Shubin get those shirts made cause they are COOL!

I'M COMING! In fact, I think I discovered your blog as I was signing up. I'm in the pre-early stages of adoption (I'd have filled it out and sent it in by now, but my husband is still thinking we should put it off a long time... I'm praying his heart will change!!!). Can't wait to see you! You're SUCH an inspiration!
