Today is the Influential Women Blog Link up. If you are a part of the Influence Network -- get on it!!!
Honestly at first I didn't think I would link up, me, influential?! I don't think so. But I am. God uses me daily and will continue to use me.

Three Things About Myself:
1. I love Taco Night. If you already know me personally you would know this about me. But seriously I love it! And let me tell you I can put some tacos back. Our best friends and us have actually started Taco Tuesday so on Tuesdays we make tacos. Now we're just at a point of trying to make it a healthier Taco Tuesday.
2. I love music so much. I love to dance. I love to sing. I love to be surrounded by music. If you stop by my house there's a 95% chance you will hear music being played. I love Pandora because I can just put on whatever station for the mood I'm in.
Current favorite Pandora stations: Kari Jobe (I don't think that'll ever change), Jeremy Camp, Pitch Perfect, All Sons & Daughters, Phillip Phillips and Mumford & Sons
[sidenote I'm an ok dancer but a terrible singer]
3. My gift is encouragement.
I am in the process of learning more about this gift. But I do know I love to encourage others, specifically mothers. Young mothers. Mothers of twins. Mothers who stay at home. Mothers who feel overwhelmed. Mothers who work. Mothers. I just like to encourage the mommas. Eventually I hope to use my voice on my blog more for doing just that.
One Thing I've Learned On The Influence Network
Writing in my seasons.
This is huge. Writing in the season. That it's ok to rejoice and to hurt and to feel. To write. Just write. To try to bring more glory to Jesus and allow grace to show. That it's ok to let down my guard and share my weaknesses and struggles. That I'm not suppose to do this life alone. How important community is IRL and on the internet.
One Photo That You Love Of Yourself
Bam. This was from a few years ago. I worked at an awesome salon in Scottsdale, Arizona. Look at those brows, you're slightly jealous aren't you?! hehe. I had recently lost 65 pounds in this picture and this is what I'm working back to and then some. I think this picture shows the confidence I had and am working towards again....but this time my confidence is not growing on how others say I look but what God says about me. Who I am.
I am Katie. And that is quite enough.
