I hope that even if you are not chosen as the winner of one of the scholarships, that you will still consider attending the conference and trying to work it out somehow. My first attempt to attend She Speaks was actually in 2004, because my friend kept persuading me to go. I finally gave in and decided I would give it a shot, and it turned out it was booked and I could not go after all! I was so bummed – but honestly, secretly I was just a little bit relieved. I wanted Gods best for my life, but my fears were still outweighing ny faith. Looking back on it now, I can see that God knew I wasnt quite ready yet.
In 2005, I again hesitantly signed up early, and did get registered to attend. I mentioned yesterday that about how I was a nervous wreck before the conference – but upon leaving the conference, I truly was a transformed person. A person who had left all her weights at the foot of the cross that weekend, and felt free for the first time ever, to take that leap of faith.
If God is calling you to attend She Speaks, and it is time, His timing, you WILL be able to work it out somehow – but hopefully with a scholarship! How cool would that be??!! But if you are not selected as the winner, keep praying for God to pave a way, physically and financially for you to attend. To tell you that it is an investment well worth it, would be an understatement. 🙂
