God is so good! I am going to the She Speaks conference the end of June in North Carolina.
Several years ago I attended a Women's Ministry Leadership Conference at Focus on the Family. It changed my life - truly and forever. I always wanted to go back again and had even signed up my entire women's council to go to the next one, when Focus had to make some budget cuts and cancelled the conference. I was so disappointed. Recently, I heard about the She Speaks conference hosted by the Proverbs 31 Ministries. Imagine my total surprise when I discovered the women in charge of this ministry were the same ones that used to be at Focus! I began to pray about it. And through several confirmations to my heart and spirit (miracles really), I have signed up and bought my plane ticket today! Now, most of you know how I am about flying. But I am praying about it already. I'm going to do it. I am going alone. That's a scary thing to do. But I am trusting God that He is going to go with me - He will be there - and He will speak to me. I am going to be so blessed. There are some things about this conference that have to do with fulfilling a dream God planted in my heart. A dream I have had for many, many years. I am sensing the time has come to do something about it. God wants me to begin exploring this dream - to make it a reality in my life. And it will be life-changing. I don't even dare put my dream into words. Yet. But I am ready to start moving on it. I am ready to start trusting Him on a deeper more intimate level than I ever have before. I am ready to do whatever it is I need to do to make this dream come true. Even if it means getting on an airplane. Alone. And even if it means going to a conference with hundreds and hundreds of women. Alone. And even if it means it is time to expose my vulnerable and fragile dream for the world to evaluate. I am not really alone. I have the dream-Giver going with me every step of the way.
