She Speaks Conference

I came home today after a long week(yes I know it's only Wednesday) dealing with various issues in the the life of a volunteer Women's Ministry Leader. I grabbed my computer and began to search the web for "women's minstry leader training". I came across She Speaks Conference and thought "this is the one I want to go to". But I knew it would not be in the budget. My heart longed for it though - it looked to have just what I was looking for. I clicked from the page with a big heavy sigh and continued my search. After about an hour I gave up and decided to read my blogs; after all I have missed the last few days and needed to catch up.

I would like to back up and share why I came home today and began looking for leadership training. I know God has called me to where I am. I know God has gifted me in area's I never thought I would be equipped. I've also known for awhile I could use some training. I know I could read books and I have read many. But I learn better listening, seeing and talking with others along with reading. God called an ordinary, untrained, woman three years ago. I know I have honored God and succeeded in some area's and failed in other areas. I think the areas I need help in the most the She Speaks Conference offers sessions for. Like sessions on Promoting Your Women's Ministry ,Developing a Dynamic Women's Ministry, Building a Dream Team of Leaders, The Power of a Story , Preparing for the Battlefield Through Prayer and Captivating the Heart of Your Audience plus so many more. You have to check them all out here.

On with my day and why I ended up writing this post today. As I sat here reading my blogs I read Heathers blog which told of a great opportunity for a chance to win a scholarship to She Speaks 2008. I thought "God is this you telling me you want me to go?" Of course I had to run right over to Lysa Terkeurst's blog and read all about the scholarship. Especially since it ends shortly!

Oh to win would be such a gift from God! Not only would I get to hear Lysa I would hear from Boo Mama, Big Mama, and Rocks in my Dryer. Best of all I would sharpen my skills so that I could come back and take our Women's Ministry to a new level, I could come home and further train and encourage the women God has given me.
Oh I'm praying.....


  1. I would be so thrilled if you won it! I will add my prayers. If it's where God wants you, this could be the way.

  2. hi sharon. may God give you the desires of your heart as you look up to Him as your only source. God bless!

  3. Praying that you will get to this conference! Have a great rest of the week!

  4. Sharon, I'm rooting for you! :) I hope that, regardless, you find a way to go. It is awesome!

  5. I pray that God opens that door for you ...... and He can make a way where the is no way.........

    I will be very interested to hear!!


  6. I pray that God blesses your desires to minister to other women. "The One Who calls you is faithful, and He will do it." (1 Thessalonians 5:24)

  7. well, i will be praying, too. i hope you'll be able to go. it sounds great.

    i know exactly how you feel. when i was a women's ministry director, i always felt there should be some kind of training or convention or network. i felt i would have greatly benefited from such. good luck.

  8. Oh Sharon...I am praying for you too!!! I know what it feels like to have the desire burning in your heart to do more, to be better, and to grow as a leader so you can be all that you can for God. I know that I hold true to Matthew 21:22 where it says, "If you believe you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer." ASK dear sister, ASK!


  9. I pray God blesses your desire to learn, grow, and share.


Leave me some joy...
