There is a special event coming up in July called the She Speaks Conference. Here is a bit of a description of it from their Web page:
She Speaks is a life-changing conference for women of every generation seeking to explore the tug on her heart to reach out to the world for Jesus. Through She Speaks, Proverbs 31 Ministries encourages and equips women who are called by God to share our mission to bring God’s peace, perspective and purpose to today’s busy woman. Sharing God’s truth with love is not only a holy calling but a remarkable responsibility. We believe by equipping women to become more effective at sharing the Word of God, we multiply our efforts to reach a hurting world with the life-transforming hope of Jesus.
I wanted to go to this last year (it’s in North Carolina), and I figured I’d get to visit with Elizabeth while she was living up there, but I didn’t fully pursue it (and now E is moving back to Orlando). Plus, I didn’t have a blog at the time, which they prefer that you link to in order to enter their scholarship contest.
This year, my friend Linda sent me the link earlier in the week and said she thought it was “write” up my alley. 🙂 So, despite this being a crazy week, I decided to take the time to post something as I would really love the opportunity to attend this conference.
Although I only have four “official” followers and the main people who read my blogs are family members and friends, I still have enjoyed using the talents that God has given me to write and to be an encourager of others. I have also enjoyed including my photography in my posts. However, I feel that I could use some guidance on going to an even deeper level in my writing so that I can really to connect to people’s hearts and be totally real and transparent in what I share and how I share. I believe some of the sessions at this event could really help me improve and reach more people.
At this conference, there are also opportunities to meet with publishers and editors and present a book proposal. I’ve talked to my friend Jacqueline several times about helping her to write a book on her life and God’s huge presence in it. This could be just the training event I need to actually make it happen.
As an avid reader and lover of words and stories, I have had a desire to be a writer for most of my life. It’s time I actually began to do something about it. So, with this post, I am entering the She Speaks Scholarship Contest. Pray for me.
