Coming Up: Speaking at a Conference & a Giveaway!

Friends!  I have exciting news to share with you.  I will be joining a group of speakers at a conference for moms in Illinois on November 7!  Just outside St. Louis, MO in Collinsville, IL, you can join us for a day of fellowship, good teaching, heart-filling encouragement, and tasty food, all with other moms who are longing to be refreshed and revitalized as much as you are. 



All of the speakers have attended intensives with Sally Clarkson and have personally benefited from her counsel, wisdom, teaching, and friendship over many years.  But more than that, these women walk with the Lord and have story after story of how HE has transformed them through motherhood and used motherhood to grow their faith.  I am so excited to hear what each one has to share; these women are my sisters, people who I admire and from whom I have learned so much in just one or two weekends of my life.

Topics to be covered
  • Spiritual Mothering
  • Encouraging One Another
  • How do I fill my cup?
  • Equipping Moms to Disciple Their Children
  • Mom's With Swords: In Defense of the Value and Beauty of Motherhood
  • How can I be a Mentor to others, when I don't feel equipped?





I have the privilege of sharing about how we can encourage one another, a topic that is dear to my heart.  We can all use encouragement, at any moment of any day, right?!  I look forward to challenging women to embrace their ability to become an encourager, in response to what God has done in their lives.  Our focus text will be Hebrews 10:19-25.

In my post on Wednesday, I shared the difference Sally Clarkson's book, Mission of Motherhood, has made in my life and how it is helping me to pursue this calling in faith, rather than continuing on an endless search for "the right formula."  That is not her only book that God has used in my life, not to mention getting to attend the intensives!  This day-conference is supposed to be like attending one of those intensives; it is a day to be poured into and equipped, so you are ready to give and keep on giving to your family and other moms.

Please consider registering (that means pray about it, ladies!) for the conference here and bringing a friend along!  Or if you are not able, please share this with any mom friends you may have in the St. Louis area and Illinois.  Thanks!


Hey, It's a Giveaway!!

In the spirit of the excitement building around this event and what I shared in my post on Wednesday, I would like to give away Sally's book, Mission of Motherhood!  One of the women in our group this fall said, "Thanks for picking such an encouraging book.  I kind of want to give every mom a copy."  I could not agree more.  So even if you already have a copy, maybe you could win this one for a friend.


Here's how to get your name in the running!  You get one entry for each of these things, so let me know in a comment how many times to throw your name in the hat.
Look at that!  You could have your name in the running up to four times.  Don't forget to mention in your comment how many times I should put in your name.  I can't wait to see who wins!

***Winner will be announce Thursday, October, 22.  Entries due by midnight EST, October 21!***
