5-Hour Extended Workshop presented by Heather:

Don’t Fear the Blogosphere: Blog Creation 101

(Saturday, 1:00-5:30)

Are you scared of computer coding? Do you have blog posts flying around your head with no place to land? Have you felt called to the blogging platform but don’t know where to start? This is your workshop. Heather will lead you through the process of creating a basic blog, walking away from the conference prepared to click “post.” (Due to the individual training needed, this workshop is for only those who preregister, with a limit of 10 participants. Email Heather at heather@petalsofjoy.org)


After Hours Workshop Presented by Heather:

1,000 Frozen Pizzas – When Full-Time Work and Family Meets a Call to Write.
Heather Iseminger knows something about juggling. As a full-time teacher, wife, and mother, who is called to write, she has spent many years attempting to uncover the juggling secret to a balanced life. While she still drops a ball or two or three, she has discovered some ways to reduce stress, banish the guilt, and fulfill each of the callings God has given her. While Heather won't teach you to juggle during this one-hour session, she will provide some lessons she's learned along the way. Lessons to bring hope as you walk this jazzed-up-crazy-awesome-abundant (but often chaotic) life gifted to us by Jesus. Spoiler alert. Our idea of balance may not exist.
