Cory was teaching at a conference last week and was sharing with some youth pastors & workers his favorite people he networks with. You know, people who you learn from. People you allow to speak into your life. People you speak the same language with.
It got me thinking.
It's been a while since I posted who I'm learning from ... Who I'm connecting with.
Some of these ladies don't have a clue I exist.
Others, I have forged a great relationship with.
I'm excited to meet this lovely lady at Catalyst this year.
It'll be our first real life face-to-face.
We chat through email, twitter, virtual roundtables, and she's a epic Words With Friends player.
Check her out over at Leading and Loving It.
She is hosting an amazing Virtual Conference that starts tomorrow. FOR FREE! Who does that? ... Lori!
Another lady I check out at least once a week is Holly Furtick.
My husband started listening to her husband a few years ago, and I saw a link on his page: The Preachers Wife.
I thought "Hm, I'll check her out". And I've been hooked ever since.
Her and her husband speak a lot of the same language Cory and I do.
Our kids are around the same age.
We honestly just like them as a couple, yet they both have much to give individually.
She's one of those who have no clue who in the world I am, yet I am still able to learn tremendous amounts!
This next lady, I'm not sure how I stumbled upon her blog, but she is funny and blunt and I love the way she writes! One minute I'm laughing reading her stuff, and the next minute I'm crying. I can feel what she writes. I love it!
There's a ton more I could tell you about.
Like here and here and here and here and here.
But I want to know who the people in your network are.
Who do you learn from?
Who do you "follow"?
Who inspires you?
And who do you just simply enjoy reading/checking out?
