Thoughts From Mount Hermon

This blog entry comes to you from the Espresso Bar at Mount Hermon. Two days packed with information and inspiration in rain, shine and gorgeous redwoods. I came thinking I had left my agendy at home, and I did, for the most part. What I had secretly hoped would happen, didn't. And what I thought for sure wouldn't, did.

Have I confused you yet?

That's ok if you are. I'm confused, too. I haven't yet figured out what God has in mind but I'm determined to listen to what he has in mind.

In the meantime, I've had the pleasure of meeting Jennifer Tiszai in person, up close and real. I brought her an interesting gift. You can read about it on her blog. I also got to meet the infamous Mike Snyder. Or should I say, soon to be famous? LOL! Some very talented people and lots of fun to talk with. (Yes, this is my blog and I'll end with a dirty preposition if I want to! Besides, techinically it's not agains't the rules.)

Let's see. They feed you constantly here. The worship time is awesome, really bathed in the Holy Spirit. Very cool. The atmosphere here is very relaxed, which has made meeting editors and agents easier.

Now, meeting with Brandilyn Collins in the morning for the mentoring group has been awesome! There are ten of us, and just about every genre is represented. Fun stuff, let me tell ya! And of course, Brandilyn is an amazing teacher and mentor.

So, I will leave you now. My soft, cushy pillow is calling me. (Gee, how'd it know my name? Oh, yeah, we sleep together. LOL!) There's a band (Eustace Scrubb--go bug Mike Snyder about that one.) playing in the sanctuary. They are fantastic. Guess I'll catch you later. Be sure to drop by. I may tell you something really cool next time...

Yeah, that was a cool gift, Dineen. And not what I was expecting! It has been an amazing conference and this was only the first full day. I'm not sure we'll even know our own names by Tuesday.

Dineen A. Miller said...

That's why we have name tags, Jennifer. LOL! Just look down. :-)

Aw, come on. The suspense is killing me. Spill it!

There is something to spill, no? You sort of hinted.

And give more details when you come back of the terrific insights you glean.

Have mercy on those of us who couldn't attend.
