The group that attended was diverse: single, newly married and long married; new mothers, mothers of many, mothers of none, and even a grandmother; women who stay at home and those who work outside the home either full-time or part-time; bloggers for profit and bloggers for fun; religious bloggers and secular ones as well. But, there was one very important thing we all held in common: our Catholic faith.
It was a joy to spend time among women who take their faith seriously and who rejoice in the beauty of being a woman. The locations chosen for the conference, Walsh University and Sancta Clara Monastery, helped set the tone for the weekend.
We talked about how our words matter. No matter how large or small a part of the blog world we might be, something we say or post is going to have an impact on someone, somewhere. What an appropriate message that was on the eve of the Feast of Pentecost!
For a very lovely and in depth write up of the conference, go check out Melody's post. Her great planning and organization brought this beautiful group of women together and left us wondering when and where the next conference she was planning would be!
