She Speaks - My Peeps

If you aren't already sick of hearing why you need to attend the She Speaks conference next year, let me give you reasons number 4, 289 thru 4, 295.

You get to hang out with your peeps.

Girls that have been gifted by God in much the same way you have been.

To write/speak for Him.

Your people.

The girls who understand your neurosis.

The women who have the same hang ups you do.

When I would sit down and speak to new friends, I felt like I wasn't crazy anymore. They too have kept journals since they were little, written or blogged about the mundane, woken up in the middle of the night with an idea or sentence they just HAD to write down or they would just die.

I now know what the little people from the TLC show Little People Big World think when they get to attend a little persons convention.

"There really are people out there just like me!"

Joanne,I have so enjoyed reading about your time at the She Speaks conference. We all need a time away to attend a conference like this. I probably will never get the chance but it sounds awesome!

Mari said...

I can tell you were so blessed by your time there and I'm blessed just hearing about it!

It's a blessing to hear all 4295 reasons to can become contagious and really make all of us want to attend. I "plan" to assuming my work schedule allows it.

Your comment on LPBW made me giggle out loud.

You're right...

This conference was so different from others I've attended. This was an equipping event for me. The focus on Jesus was never lost, but was instead woven into every seminar and gathering.

I feel satisfied. Simply satisfied. And for a girl who usually can't get "no satisfaction" this was a treasured gift.

I am so gald to have you to share my "craziness" with! I was just telling my best friend this morning on the phone how great it is that God let me meet you at She Speaks so I could have an actual "writing buddy" to bounce things off of. You are a wonderful encourager to me and I appreciate you!

gina said... I am really wanting to go to this conference next year! YOu are a great advertisement!!

So...what's next with your book?

Hope you are having a great day!

You said it so well. There was something oddly familiar about the new ladies I met this past weekend...they didn't seem "new" at all, but rather sister-friends I'd known forever! Blessings on ur book submittal. Go for it!!

Keep it up! Even though you all may be a little strange (TeeHee) I know God is going to do wonderful things with your time there! Oh, and it's good to know your not alone!
