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.....
