One Has My Name - She Speaks

All I have to do is get myself there.

Can you say, "Road trip?"

Proverbs 31 Ministries sponsors an annual "She Speaks" Conference with tracks in speaking, writing, and women's ministries.

I've been brooding over it. Praying over it. For months.

The timing's perfect. After Alpenfest. After the new grandbaby and great niece arrive and settle in.

And now Lysa TerKeurst has three Cecil Murphy scholarships in hand that include conference registration, two nights at the conference hotel, conference materials, and meals! In North Carolina.

One of those scholarships has my name on it.

Some of my favorite people will speak like Lysa and Cec and Mary DeMuth and Renee Swope and . . . well, go here and see.

And they developed several topics with me in mind like Pursuing Excellence as a Speaker, The Power of a Story, How to Write a Book, So You Wanna Write a Novel, and  . . . well, go here and see.

And some things I'll learn include how to develop a theme audiences can't wait to hear, how to tell stories that keep my audience engaged, how to create a "grab-'em-by-the-throat-and-won't-let-go" book proposal, spiritual warfare, what makes writing great, how to schedule writing time and keep a balanced life, how to discover my unique voice, and . . . well, go here and see.

I love that this conference can help equip me to be more effective in both writing and speaking. Because chances are I don't have too many more years left to reach my dreams and make a mark for eternity. Not that I'm "old" or anything, but the time is now. And whatever I do, I want to do with excellence.

And so I am entering this contest just as the last bit of sand falls from the hourglass.

You can enter to win one of the scholarships, too. Just go here.

But hurry. Today is the deadline.

And remember, only two remain.

Because one has my name on it.

No, I'm not excited.

"And who knows but that you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this and for this very occasion?" Esther 4:14 (Amplified)
