I'm so excited to announce that She Speaks, Proverbs 31's summer conference, is ready for registration. This is the way that I got involved initially with Proverbs 31 Ministries. It's a truly amazing conference that has tracks for speakers, writers, women's ministry leaders and teen girls.
I found that the conference was so much more than a chance to gain the "nuts and bolts" needed. Our team does a fantastic job of supplying a whole hardware store of nuts and bolts, but I have also experienced deep spiritual renewal both times I've attended. Just when I thought my life couldn't be changed any more....
It is also the most nurturing conference I've ever been a part of. I went by myself the first time, and I was simply scared silly. I just knew that I'd never measure up to all the other women, and I was afraid of being harshly judged. What I found was so different. Proverbs 31 is truly made up of the most extraordinary group of women that I've ever been around. The ministry is committed to giving it all away. Whereas most organizations in the business world would never give all their trade secrets away at a conference, P31 delights in sharing everything we know. These women know the kingdom secret of the power of sharing... and it's all about the kingdom.
If you've never attended, I urge you to pray about coming this summer. If you've attended in the past, I urge you to pray, too! I really didn't expect to have such a deep experience with God like I did the first year, but God defied my expectations! Plus, it's an added benefit for me that I might get to spend time with my girlfriends like you!
