Hi Erin! “The weekend turned out to be exactly what I did not expect.” I can totally identify with that! Such beautiful women, such incredible teaching, such good food for the soul. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on She Speaks! I’m not sure that we had the opportunity to meet each other there, but I wanted to invite you to my She Speaks Community private Facebook group. My friend, Kristen, and I are hosting it for women who attended She Speaks 2016 and are interested in supporting and encouraging one another as we settle back into life with all that we learned from the conference. If you are already a part of a writer/speaker/leader encouragement group, we don’t want to infringe upon that and it won’t hurt our feelings at all if you choose not to join. But if you (or any other She Speaks attendee on this thread) are interested, message me and I’ll send you the link! Blessings to you on your journey!
hi heather. i would love to be a part of your group. you can never be surrounded by too many supportive, encouraging, faith-filled women! thank you for starting such a wonderful space. please let me know the best way to join.
thank you for your generous, kind words. somedays she speaks feels like a lifetime away as i get back in the swing of real life. sometimes it is right there. i’m not sure i’ve checked out your blog yet so i’m looking forward to doing that today.

What wonderful insight from such a special weekend. I was not there but a member of Compel. And I know what it’s been like for me online. So I am sure in person was amazing being surrounded in person with His people. May He continue to speak over you from this special weekend.

I really loved your recap! I missed that session by Cindy Evans Hurst, but I remember Glynis Whitwer saying at the keynote at the pre-conference on Thursday that “God allows gaps in your calling on purpose, so that He can fill them and so He can allow others to fill them.” Sounds like you followed God’s calling into the uncomfortable and He sent you some new friends to fill your gaps. I wish I had met you at She Speaks this year. I’ll keep following your blog and maybe we can meet next year!

Yes! I relate to you on so many levels! I also came solo and and unsure of when to arrive. and I ended up super early on Thursday afternoon! I agree the uncomfortable feeling that we feel is indeed where growth is occurring, I’m sorry we didn’t meet at the conference, but I’m so thankful for this bloghop to be able to encourage each other! Blessings!
wish i could have met you too! can’t wait to hop to your blog to check out your post. i am still getting through everyone’s. enjoy your day today!!
