She Speaks conference '07

I got the index for the book turned in (whoo hoo), my two speaking sessions created (hoo ha), and managed to pack way too much (a gal's gotta have options) before getting on the road to Charlotte for the P31 She Speaks conference. I'll do the Saturday morning general session, as well as a breakout session for beginning speakers, and lead a critique group.

I've arrived a few days early for some staff conference time and I'm enjoying Zoe's hospitality. It always fills me up to see my P31 teammates. We each work so hard every year to put this conference on - and we are thrilled to bless the women who come, to help nurture their dreams, and to minister side-by-side with one another. My teammates are awesome ... I would hate to be a "lone ranger" in ministry.

This year we've about doubled in attendees - over 400 - spilled over into a second hotel, and women are still calling to try to register. I know a great weekend is in store and can hardly wait until Friday. The best part for me is hearing afterwards from the participants what God whispered to their heart or birthed in their life during the She Speaks weekend. If you happen to be a 2007 attendee, I hope you will leave a comment or send me an email and tell me what God spoke to you during your time with us!

For the fame of His name,


  1. Woman, your blog looks AWESOME! Thank you for "training" us up for the Kingdom, it was great to meet you.

  2. Rachel, I came home filled up, to overflowing! What an invigorating time at the conference, and what a great group of women we had in the speaker evaluation group. I even started work on my own blog again!

    I came away from "She Speaks" with so many blessings! Too many to name. It was just such an awesome experience to sit in a room filled with over 400 women, who are totally committed to God, and to let the Holy Spirit wash over me. Praise and Worship was magnificant! Looking forward to next year.


Chime in.
