Hi Sweet Blogging sisters.
I am excited to announce that today is the first official day of registrations for the 2008 She Speaks conference. And they are offering an opportunity to WIN A SCHOLARSHIP! I’ll get to the specifics about the contest at the end of this post. First, let me tell you a little more about She Speaks and why you should consider attending this year.I am very passionate about this conference for speakers, writers and women’s ministry leaders because I’ve experienced first hand the amazing things God does with the ladies that attend.
For Speakers: Whether you are ready to take the main stage and start speaking at conferences and retreats or whether you want to learn how to more effectively teach a ladies’ Bible Study- this track is for you. After attending this conference you will be equipped to:
Know how to develop a message from start to finish

Deliver your message in such a way that not only inspires your audience but motivates them to make life changes
Increase your number of booked speaking engagements by using proven marketing strategies.
For Writers: You have had a passion for writing and have even had people encourage you to write a book, but have never known how to get started on the pathway to publication. You will have the chance to attend sessions taught by some of the top Christian publishers and make appointments to pitch your book proposal.Or maybe you are a blogger and just want to learn how to more effectively connect with your readers and increase the impact of your blog. What better way than to sit in sessions taught by three of the most widely read blog authors: Boo Mama, Big Mama, and Rocks in My Dryer.Whatever the case may be, after attending this conference you will:
Discover your unique writing voice and the mechanics of effective writing
Understand what publishers are looking for and how to write proposals that get their attention
Better understand how to build your writing portfolio by getting published in magazines

For Women’s Ministry Leaders:You know first hand the unique opportunities and challenges that present themselves when you lead a ministry in your church for women. You give and serve all year long— now is your chance to get filled back up with encouragement and training. You’ll have the opportunity to attend a Pre-Conference Intensive as well as the women’s ministry leadership track where you’ll learn how to:
Build a dream team of ministry partners
Cast your vision for ministry in a way others will catch it
Distinguish God’s direction for your ministry with confidence.
Celebrate milestones of your ministry’s effectiveness and keep your team inspired.
We also have a track for middle school and high school girls called The Next Generation. This track is specifically designed for girls who have the desire to speak, write, or be a stronger leader for Christ in their sphere of influence.
