i'm linking up with some hopespoken ladies today!
so here i am. you can never trust anyone's selfie though, people look different than they photograph sometimes. i actually have long blond hair and my dog isn't allowed on my bed. what?
my name is jami nato and i have a husband and some kids and i like margaritas. i am speaking at the conference this year and i am already sweating profusely just thinking about it. i bought arm pit pads (yes these are really sold) for the occasion because tissues don't work that great as i discovered last year. in fact, they sometimes fall out when you're speaking in front of a group and you have to kick it away like it's not your armpit tissue...surely, the last speaker's?
a lot of people want to know about my marriage. so you can find that here or search marriage in the seach box. :)
i am nervous about all the people, but mostly about speaking in front of the people. i'm a hermit, so this will be a challenge. if you want to find me just look for the lady in sweat pants, drinking a marg in the corner. not really. i'm going to be hanging with all you ladies. actually, let's keep the sweat pants part of the joke.
my hope for the conference:
i hope that i get to see more of Jesus at this conference. sometimes at these things, it's easy to see the people. because you've read their blogs, you want to meet them, or you want to get your name out there. and i think those things will fail you. each one of the speakers is a normal human who is mean sometimes and makes lots of mistakes. they might accidentally ignore us or be too busy to see us. instead, i'm going to hear from God, not so and so. i want to encounter his presence in a powerful way and i want to be used by him to proclaim the truth of the Gospel. sure, making new friends is a total cherry on the top! but my eye is on what God is going to do.
i come from a family of 10 people. 2 sets of twins. 3 kids adopted. 2nd oldest.
most of my teeth are fake. wait, that's not fun.
i'm an opera singer. ok, that's a lie. but i can tap dance.
made up question:
yes, you can come organize my house and do my laundry(that's not been touched for a month). i'm a hot mess.
