Since I’m reflecting on the topic of “connections” this week, I thought about the kind of people that I like connecting to. One of the most beautiful things about the Synergy conference is that Caucasian, African-American, Asian Americans, and even a few Hispanics were all learning, fellowshipping, praying, and worshipping God together. I loved scanning the room and seeing the beauty of God’s creation in that way.
The other unique truth about the women that attend Synergy, is that the majority of them are passionate for Christ, thinkers, leaders, change agents, and confident influencers, but I have also found them women to be wise, humble, encouraging, gracious, and quite generous. It is rare to find such combinations in today’s culture. Therefore, I am glad to be a part of the Synergy Women’s Network.
Please allow me to introduce you to some other ladies from the network:
Carolyn Custis James, Synergy Founder, and author of newly released book, Half the Church. I have read and re-read Carolyn’s first two books. I can’t wait to introduce her to you. More details coming soon!
Judy Douglass, Synergy Board of Directors. Judy is a great encourager! She continues to light fires at her Kindling blog.
Rebecca Gilmer is on the Synergy Board of Directors and serves as Vice President of The Impact Movement, sharing Christ with students at predominately African-American college campuses. Check out my Impact Movement Post!
Nicole Unice partnered with me to host a “Blogging for Beginners” Workshop. Connect with the “new bloggers” that attended our workshop here. You can “search” Nicole Unice to see other blog posts about the great things that she is up to.
Suzanne Burden has become a dear friend of mine. We connected at the Synergy conference last year. I simply adore her. We encourage each other through seminary, which she blogs about here.
I was so excited to finally meet these “Missional Moms!” So glad that they have joined the Synergy family:
Tracey Bianchi, author of Green Mama: The Guilt-free Guide to Helping You and Your Kids Save the Planet. Check out Tracey’s blog here.
Helen Lee, author of The Missional Mom. Helen’s blog post here.
Shayne Moore, author of Global Soccer Mom. Shayne’s blog post here.
It is going to be a challenge to determine which of their books to read with the moms at my church this summer. I received all of their books for free this weekend!
Synergy Ladies, what’s something quirky you would like the readers to know about you?
Friends, please check out these websites while surfing the internet this weekend.

Thanks for your kind words–about me and about all the other wonderful women. Yourself included. Indeed, Synergy rocks!
Natasha! And you, my dear sista, rock as well! You have such wisdom and insight to offer this world and I am so thankful that your voice was at Synergy too. Thanks for your compassion, grace, and for the way you care about this world and about people finding Jesus. Peace and Grace to you!!
Quirky? I have an aversion to embroidered sweaters and sweatshirts. 🙂
Thanks so much for being a connector!
