she speaks

If you ever listen to the Christian radio station, KLove, you’ve probably heard the sweet voice of Renee Swope sharing a P31 devotional thought from time to time.  I always smile when I hear her speaking because I know that she is as genuine in real life as she is on the air.  Renee loves God passionately.

I had the blessing of getting to know Renee personally when I attended my first She Speaks conference several years ago.

I’ll never forget one summer evening last year when my phone rang and it was Renee wanting to ask for permission to share Nick’s story while speaking at a family conference in Texas.  As we talked, I knew that our family’s story was safe in her hands. 

This year I am hoping to attend the She Speaks Conference again, but I am not sure if this is a wise year to make such a financial decision.  After  Erich’s wedding, Evan’s college graduation, and Todd’s high school graduation, I feel a little guilty stepping out with this type of an expense.  So when I heard that Renee was offering a scholarship through her blog, I decided to enter.  If God wants me at the conference this year, I truly believe He will open the door…and then I will know that this is His will and not just mine! 

As part of the scholarship entry process I am sharing about She Speaks on my blog and praying that by doing so some of you will decide to visit and learn more about their amazing ministry.

You can also visit Renee at  I know that you will love her as much as I do!  She will be releasing her book A Confident Heart at the conference this summer!  I was humbled to be asked to pre-read her book and participate in a prayer/journaling group over the next two months, and I can already tell you that you will love the book and you will be blessed by it!

Don’t forget to leave a comment on the blog post below this one in order to be entered in the drawing for Dr. Ross Campbell and Dr. Gary Chapman’s new book How to Really Love Your Adult Child.  I will announce the winner next Sunday, March 27th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have a wonderful Sunday!
