HomeMom LifeCatalyst Dallas – Hello Inspiration May 3, 2013 Today and tomorrow I am spending at Catalyst Dallas conference. Last week, was one of those pull my hair out kind of weeks. Between end of the month projects and a potty training toddler, I needed a BREAK. I registered for Catalyst, found childcare and counted down the seconds until it was time to leave for the event. Catalyst Dallas From the moment I sat down in the sanctuary, I knew I was where I needed to be. No kids. God. Good people. Great messages. Friends. Old co-workers. As one friend joked, I was conferencing. Conferencing – the act of going to conferences. Today’s event had an amazing line-up. Andy Stanley, Jon Acuff, Craig Groeschel, Lysa Terkeurst, David Crowder, Matt Redman, Louie Giglio (I missed Reggie Joyner). Every single speaker, singer, performer – NAILED IT. Catalyst Conference Faves Mega Paper Airplane Throw Down 2500 people throwing paper airplanes. David Crowder David Crowder in 6 seconds just doesn’t give his music and talent justice.

I had the privilege of working with the people at the Catalyst conference a few years ago when at Thomas Nelson. The people are good folk, hard-working and know how to put on a fabulous event. After attending in 2011, I left thinking this is an event I would pay for. (Previously my old employer picked up the tab.) And am so glad I registered this year. I’ll post notes after the event. If you are looking for a christian inspirational event or leadership conference – check out the Catalyst conference. Catalyst Dallas and Catalyst West are smaller in scale (2500 attendees or so) compared to Catalyst Atlanta (full arena!). The only down side? I realized I have a total attachment disorder and so does my kid. catalystconference.com One Response John Short May 8, 2013 I was there near the front last week at catalyst. Loved it. Nice blog.
