She Speaks Gems

Last weekend I attended the annual She Speaks Conference put on by Proverbs 31 Ministries in Concord, North Carolina. This conference is for Christian women who are called to write, speak, and / or lead for Christ. I learned so much that my brain is on information overload, but I am confident that God will help me sort it all and give me direction for the plan he has for me.

Sunday I had lunch with a wonderful lady from Virginia ( We discussed what we had learned, how blessed we were, and how God brought us to She Speaks. She asked me what my next step would be once I got home. I told her, “Get on my knees.” If I am not Spirit-led, then it is all in vain.

Here are a few gems from She Speaks 2012:
