I'll be at Hope Spoken!


Today is the Hope Spoken link-up! Looking forward to attending this one-of-a-kind event in March, and I'm excited to start meeting other women who will be there through this link-up!

{introduce yourself} Hi everyone! I'm Amanda Reed, a newlywed, blogger, photographer, marketing coordinator, proud Baylor Bear and Austinite. I love Jesus, candles, good design and typography, trying new recipes, traveling and spending time with family and friends.

{something you're a little timid or nervous about for the weekend} First things first, I'm anxious about a close friend of mine being able to get a ticket since the event is currently sold out. We were planning to room together for the weekend, but that's contingent on her actually attending Hope Spoken. Thank you Casey/Danielle/Emily for making every effort to add more tickets! Secondly, I'm a tad of an introvert when it comes to big groups of people {if you really know me, you know I'm not always introverted!} so I'm just asking God to break down my walls so that I can be real and intentional to build friendships at the conference.

{something that you are hoping to take away from HopeSpoken} Two things I'm most looking forward to: 1) resting, learning, listening, being encouraged, and allowing Jesus to fill me up and send me out, and 2) meeting so many incredible, creative-minded women who love the Lord, and getting to hear their stories. I have a few "blog friends" whom I've never met in real life {Casey, Wynne}, so getting to hug them and talk face-to-face will be so fun!

{share something fun/random about yourself} Though I call myself a Texas girl, I was actually born in Alaska! Read more about that here.

  1. Hey Amanda! I'm excited to meet you and to hear that you're from Austin. My SIL moved to Austin from Canada and I'm always looking to help her make connections. So let's be friends and then you and her can be friends too! :)

  9. Hopefully your friend snagged one of the extra tickets! But if not, don't worry, I have a feeling there will be several of us introverts huddling together!
