Learning how She-Speaks (scholarship give-a-way!)

Every year I see postings on Lysa TerKeurst's blog about the She Speaks conference.

If you have never heard of She Speaks you must immediately, I mean IMMEDIATELY go here (But come back when you are done!).

Are you back? OK, great! Now, doesn't that look like just the most AMAZING thing ever? Do you want to speak to women? There's encouragement and guidance for that! Do you want to write about God's grace and mercy lived out in your life? There's guidance for that! Do you want to grow your women's ministry into an amazing testimony of God's love through people? There's guidance for that! Besides that, a conference full of women who love God, love women, and want to grow in their gifts and callings? WOW!

I have been eyeing this conference for a couple of years because God is working this strange new gift in me, and I am not sure what to do with it or what direction I am supposed to go from here. I just know I absolutely LOVE when something that I have shared from my own life and journey impacts someone else. I truly believe that we each have an amazing, God-given ability to change the world through our life story. As for me, well, there will be some writers there that I would love to get some info from, as well as just seeking guidance as to what I am supposed to DO with this thing sitting in my head.

Now, as you know, I would love to win this scholarship (as you probably guessed, for the writing track) since I would never be able to afford it on my own. But, I may not be the person God has intended for this reward. It might be YOU! I would like to really encourage you (again, yes YOU!) to head over to Lysa's blog and get all the info and get yourself registered for the scholarship give-a-way. To find out what the scholarship includes, go here.

Ladies, We all have stories to share and people to influence in the name and cause of Christ, and this is a great opportunity for you to see just how you can do it!

Good Luck!

I love the statement you made that each of us have a God-given ability to change the world through our own life story. Such a wonderful way of thinking. Blessings on your ability to attend.

I LOVE your glasses! They look just like mine :-)

And I agree that our stories are God-ordained. One of my sweetest moments was the realization that God hated what happened to me as as child, but gloried in using it to spread His name.

Praying for your dreams & good luck in the contest!

Have a blessed and beautiful day!
