I’m sure it’s no surprise to you, that up ’til now, I hadn’t considered myself a writer. In fact I celebrated when my last college English class ended, thankful that I’d never have to write a paper again. But in the process of blogging in this space I am becoming a writer.
In fact I am a writer.
And although blogging is new to me, I love that it is a ministry. I love that it allows me to be a vessel–to share my life with you, to seek to encourage and inspire you with intention.
And being used is not only the result of being willing, but also of being equipped—of growing and learning and practicing to write. Stringing together words to share with you, with the hope that you will be drawn closer to Him as a result.
And I’m so excited to share with you an amazing opportunity I have to become better equipped as a writer this summer…
In July, I’ll be attending She Speaks, a conference in North Carolina that equips writers, speakers, and women’s ministry leaders to bring God’s peace, purpose, and perspective to today’s busy woman.
She Speaks teaches women to make the most of their message, by helping them become more effective at sharing God’s mission of love and hope to the hearts of women.
Proverbs 31:26 “She speaks with wisdom and faithful instruction is on her tongue.”
Will you pray for me as I prepare to attend She Speaks this summer?
That I would absorb the instruction, grow in my writing, and become more effective in sharing the hope we have in Christ. Because I long for women to know about the mercy and grace He gives, so their lives can be changed and their hearts can be healed, by the power of His love.
I covet your prayers.
And beyond your prayers, if you feel led, there is an opportunity for you to join in helping me raise support for this conference–and if you can’t, I SO understand, but if you are able, you can help by sending a tax-deductible donation one of two ways:
1. Call Proverbs 31 Ministries at 877-731-4663 to contribute by credit card,
2. Send a check directly payable to Proverbs 31 Ministries:

Please be sure to designate the scholarship in my name, in order to credit my scholarship fund.
You will be receipted for your tax-deductible donation.
And could I ask???
If you are praying for me (or helping with support), would you consider leaving me a comment?
Would you write a few words and tell me how I can pray for you today??
It would be such a privilege to pray for you.
Thank you so very much for your prayers and support, it really means so much to me!
