She Speaks

It’s coming! That’s right, the conference I’ve been waiting for since last year…She Speaks!

I’ve never been before, but I knew from the moment I heard about it last year that I needed to be there. The exceptional teaching staff and scheduled sessions only intensify my longing to go, to learn, to join like-minded women at this much anticipated conference.

Eric Liddell, the famous Scottish Olympic gold medalist, once said, “When I run, I feel His pleasure.” My heart echoes that same sentiment when I speak and when I write. That’s why I can’t think of a better place to be from July 30th – August 1st than the 2010 She Speaks Conference.

Proverbs31 Ministries has developed a powerful reputation for creating this life-changing conference that not only equips women to make a difference in the lives of others, but also strengthens and encourages the heart of everyone who attends. Whether you’re a speaker, a writer or a ‘leading lady’ in ministry, this is an experience you won’t want to miss!

For those of you who follow my blog, you know this year has been somewhat of a wild ride for the Shott clan. You can imagine how excited I became when I read Lysa Terkeurst’s blog and found out Cec Murphy is offering three scholarships to the 2010 She Speaks Conference. All I can say is this Southern girl, with a passion to impact women with the Word, had a little glimmer of hope that I might be chosen. After all, someone’s got to win.

So, for now, I’m praying I get to go and hope to see you there!

For those of you awaiting our series on ‘Leading Ladies’ – hang in there! We’ll get started on that Monday. I just had to take this opportunity to share about She Speaks and put my name in the pot of those who are seeking a scholarship. You can do it too! Just visit Lysa’s website by clicking here.


  1. I do hope you get the scholarship! Cec is such a generous man. He provided 10 scholarships to our Write2Ignite conference back in February. What a sweet man. I know he refers to himself as a “curmudgeon”…but I just don't see it. All I see is a precious servant! πŸ™‚

  2. Hi Donna,
    Thanks for the support! They announced the winners on the 2nd and I wasn't one of them. Still praying I can go, but leaving it in the Lord's hands. He knows where I need to be on those dates.

    Since I've been speaking to women for 20+ years, I thought it would be exciting to be at a conference full of like-minded women. But for now, I'll just pray and see what God wants. πŸ™‚
