As a nineteen-year-old girl volunteering at a youth camp, God called me to stand before people and share my story. For the next eighteen years, I questioned God’s voice, hesitated to raise support and rendered my voice silent before God and man. The last few years have stretched me in many ways as I seek to share the story God has given me with any willing to listen. His words pour out of me because I can no longer hold them inside or keep them to myself.
The words are fire in my belly,
a burning in my bones.
I'm worn out trying to hold it in.
I can't do it any longer! Jeremiah 20:9 The Message
Because my heart’s desire is to share with excellence, I seek training from Proverbs 31 Ministries at their annual She Speaks conference. She Speaks equips women called to share their stories.
"The She Speaks Conference is a life-changing conference for women seeking to step out in the passion God has placed on their heart. Hosted by Proverbs 31 Ministries (501(c)3), She Speaks encourages and equips women to make the most of their messages, communicating God's Word through writing, speaking and leading."
In order to walk where God is calling me, I must raise funds to attend She Speaks. Because you walked everyday faith with me through cancer, I find it only natural to come to you for help as we walk everyday faith beyond cancer together.
I invite you to join me as you feel led in this exciting mission. There are several ways to participate. For a tax deductable gift, call Proverbs 31 Ministries at 877-731-4663 to contribute by credit card; or send a check payable to Proverbs 31 Ministries to:

Most importantly, you can partner with me in prayer believing that:
