She Speaks...

Hi friends! There's a great contest going on at Lisa TerKeurst's blog for a free conference registration (including conference fee, hotel, and meals!) for the Proverbs 31 Ministries She Speaks Conference. Wouldn't you like to learn how you can stretch your ministry through writing, speaking, blogging, etc? I know I'm up for it! And I'd love for me or one of you to win that scholarship!

The conference is this summer, July 31 - August 2, in beautiful Concord, North Carolina, at the Embassy Suites Hotel Resort & Conference Center. The $550 registration fee (or scholarship!) covers all the sessions and your accommodations. I've never been able to go to the conference in the past, but I've heard it's a great opportunity to meet other women - some who have the expert knowledge to show us the way and others who are on the path with us to minister through words - whether you speak, teach, blog, or write! There will be breakout sessions geared to bloggers, writers, speakers, ministry leaders, and even the younger generation. That's right, one of the neatest things about this conference is they have a track for teenage girls who are interested in reaching their own generation through speaking, writing, and blogging too! Of course, for that generation I hope they also have classes on texting, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, and bejeeter (just kidding on that last one!). I'm seriously considering taking my own 15-year-old daughter if I can win that scholarship. Don't you think Abby would just soak it up?

If you're interested in the scholarship, check it out here. If you want more information about the conference, go here. If you don't know what in the world I'm talking about go here. (Just kidding again. That last link goes no where!) Don't you just love links? If only we could somehow use them to help our kids link their dirty clothes to the hamper or their dirty plates to the dishwasher... Oh well. Enough of my rambling!

I'd love to win that scholarship myself because, while I do write and blog and speak and lead, I desperately need a boost. I'm nothing if not teachable! I'd love the opportunity to pump up my ministry with the help of these godly ladies. Personally I'm looking into the Pre-Conference Advance Ministry Marketing Seminar that begins Friday, July 31st. I think it may be just the booster shot I need to hone my skills and position myself so I can be of more use in ministry. If you don't already know, I absolutely love communicating the riches of God's ancient words to modern women. What a blast! And how I'd love to "pump it up" a little with this amazing conference.

Hey, if you're interested, you check out the info and get registered for the scholarship. If not, pray that I get it. Living way out here in Arizona, there's no way I can go without it! But maybe we can both meet up there and have a blast!
