join me! orange next steps

i’m still swimming in an orange river of information from last week’s orange conference. i have pages of notes to process through, and people i met and want to get to know better, and loads of blogs to read and digest through.

i’ll get to it all (eventually) but for now, these are the 2 next steps i’m taking:

1. real world parenting collaborative project: i was really impacted by mark matlock’s breakout real world parenting. one of my hopes going into the conference was to challenge my own way of thinking and further develop some theories that are rolling around in my head about how to influence (non) traditional families inside and outside of the church. and i think mark’s ideas will definitely give language to some practical ways we can influence (non) traditional families.

i would love to read the book together with the kidmin community – and then use it to develop practical ideas for parents with kids preschool and elementary age. let me know if you are interested in being a part of this project. email me: amy@lemonlimekids | tweet me @adolan | leave a comment on this post

2.  post orange meet up! after an event, i love to process learnings with people face to face! i’m organizing an orange debrief for anyone in the chicago area (including the city and suburbs) who either attended orange and would love to share notes and learnings with others – OR anyone who didn’t attend orange but would love to listen and collect some new ideas from those who did attend. email me if you are interested and i’ll send details for our post orange meet up!

blessings on your day!
