You cannot imagine how hard it was for our Executive Director to pick only one winner. However, we all know in our hearts and believe with great faith that if God has truly called someone to attend the conference at this time, then He WILL make a way for them to attend.
A great idea to consider is setting up your own scholarship fund. Proverbs 31 has already put together an amazing letter that you can send to your family, friends, church members, small group, etc., which can help you kick off your fundraising campaign. The way it works, is that tax-deductible donations can be made to Proverbs 31 Ministries and designated as scholarship money for the specified individual, which takes away some of the awkwardness of asking people to give you money. It may sound a little intimidating at first, but keep in mind, that each year we have 20 – 30 women attend She Speaks because they set up their own scholarship funds. You see, not everyone is called to speak or write, but some are called to financially help someone else answer the call to speak or write, and God lays it on their hearts to make a difference in His kingdom in that way.
If you are interested in how to get started with your own scholarship fund, just go to www.shespeaksconference.com Click on the green button that says “Scholarship Info” at the bottom left of the home page, and you will be taken directly to the scholarship information.
Have a wonderful Monday!
