The path I see in front of me is one of writing and ministry. This blog is part of that, and I am exploring some new steps beyond that. I am more prepared than I had realized for some of those steps, but I know I need to become better equipped to walk where I am called to go.

I have been looking at Christian writing workshops and conferences–and I found one that speaks to my heart: She Speaks. I am in the Midwest, and the conference is in North Carolina. Travel and conference attendance are, alas, not free. Registration, airfare, hotel, a few meals, and incidentals look to be around $1800. If I am able to cut some expenses, then I would love to be able to attendance pre-conference workshops as well.

As I’ve shared here before, we are not in a pretty financial situation at the moment, and we have no resolution right in front of us–so I’ve decided to ask you to help send me to this conference. Yes, I am trying crowdfunding.

If you would like to help me along this path of writing and ministry I am walking, you can visit my page on GoFundMe. I also have a link over in my sidebar you can use.

What will you get for your money? Well, I don’t have t-shirts or coasters to send you, but I will send an email to thank you for your contribution. I can probably send you a postcard from the conference, too. And hopefully, I will be able to give you a better version of what I am doing here already.

If you prefer not to make a financial contribution, please pray for me to find my way forward.

8 Thoughts on “She Speaks – Can I, Too?

  1. I would like to thank you for your mission and testimony. I would also like to help you financially but alas, all monies are tied up in my refusing, gate keeping wife’s divorce. I WILL pray for you as we’ll as my bride and our children. Peace be with you.

  2. I’ll contribute, but what happens if you can’t come up with the full $1,800?

    • I will still go to the conference. I have someone who may be able to donate frequent flyer miles and a friend who will let me stay in her hotel room if necessary. I will just have to be a bit creative. The most critical part is the conference registration, and I am almost there thanks to some wonderful readers.

  3. Awe, sis this is an awesome opportunity for you. My prayers are with you. I would contribute but I am trying to juggle an invitation to the Coalition To End Sexual Exploitation in May and a mission trip to Honduras in July. One will not take place for me for sure.
