If you ever get the opportunity to invest in a dream that’s so big you-can’t-say-it-aloud-because-OMG-it-is-terrifying….do it. Book the room, pack way too many shoes, board that plane, find a babysitter, leave before dawn…whatever it is you need to do. Make. It. Happen.
Hurricane Florence pushed back the date of the She Speaks Studio to November, and I had been anxiously awaiting it now for months.
She Speaks Studio was put on by Proverbs 31 Ministries, and if you have no idea what this organization is - I suggest you check it out if you’re looking for resources to grow in your faith.
This was the first Studio event and it was organized with instructional time, keynote speakers and hands-on workshop time. I signed up for the writing track and immediately made some amazing new friendships. I love how God cares enough about the details to make sure we were all sitting together at the same table!
Confession: I cried at least 395 times over the span of 1 1/2 days. Here are a few takeaways I never want to forget:
Listening to best-selling author and speaker, Lysa TerKeurst, remind us that God does not want to be explained away, but invited in.
When author, Suzie Eller said “when we hesitate in our calling, it becomes about us and not about God.”
The personal and heartbreaking stories of some of the strongest women I’ve ever met. Getting to hug them and process through some big emotions was an honor.
Having a mentor I respect, read my writing, look me in the eye and say “This is really, really good. Go write this.” #totallysobbed
I am beyond grateful for this experience and I can’t wait to see how God is going to use it!
Curious what I’m doing?
