SHE SPEAKS! Then She Sleeps, She Rests

I had every intention of blogging yesterday--but instead I rested, slept, and sorted through piles of laundry and paperwork. For those who don't know, I just returned from Charlotte, NC. I was at the Proverbs 31 Ministries Conference She Speaks! It was a blast, but I came home tired and on a different time zone.

Anyway, the conference was fabulous. We worshipped, we studied, we wrote, we spoke, we prayed, we blogged, but best of all Jesus showed up and showered His blessings upon us. One of the highlights was listening to Jennifer Rothschild. Oh my! She knocked my socks off with words of wisdom.

And my speaker evaluation group shone brightly. I had the privilege of listening to some of the most amazing testimonies and teachings I have ever heard. Our group consisted of 11 gals & me. They each blessed me in different ways. As I said, it was a privilege to be the group evaluator. Here's a picture, but sadly two of our girls had to leave early and missed the photo.

Another highlight at She Speaks was the unveiling of a new branch of Proverbs 31 Ministries--She Reads. This launched so that those of us who love fiction will have a "book club" to join. Check out the She Reads page at http://www.shereadsblog.blogspot.com/ Three new books have been recommended, and I can't wait to read them.

Okey Dokey! Until tomorrow!

I really enjoyed your session this past weekend - like Wendy, it was one of the highlight of the conference.

Thank you for your words of encouragement (I spoke to you outside the main conference room afterwords). I plan to read the Writer's Porch each week and glean more knowledge from you.

And I won't give up on "my crazy dream!"
