This is my second post today...to check out my devotion for Tuesday, March 8th click here.
Proverbs 31 Ministries offers a wonderful conference each year called She Speaks. This conference is for women who feel called to serve in ministry as writers, speakers and even Women's Ministry leaders. Right now they are having a contest for a scholarship to attend the conference. In order to qualify you have to do a blog post on why you want to go. So here goes...
I have always felt called to serve in ministry. For many years I worked with children in one way or another. I still love working with children. There is something very special about seeing a child come to know the Lord and follow Him. A few years ago, God started calling and preparing me to work with women. He has helped me to step out of my shell, something I am still working on, to minister and become friends with women. He also told me to write. At first I laughed at God about this. I am so not a writer! But when God tells you to do something, He doesn't change His mind just because you think it is crazy. That is why I started Sweet Blessings. To write and share what God was laying on my heart each day. I would love to attend She Speaks to become more equipped to fulfil the call He has placed on my life. My goal is to go to the conference within the next few years. So even if I do not win this contest, I will eventually go to She Speaks.
