Who is getting ready for She Speaks?  I'll tell you a secret. I am already there! I am here in Concord at the Embassy Suites getting ready ~

...and I am waiting for you!

So what did I pack? What did I do to get ready?

I have my one page and elevator talk and book proposal.

I packed my shoes, makeup, hair brush and contact lens solution.

But... most importantly I took a look at all my expectations,

...and then I let them go!

Let go your expectations so God can fill you up. He can't give us what He has planned if we are so filled up and over packed that we are not prepared for our encounter with God.

Sweet friends,

prepare by letting go!

Thank you so much, Van. I've been stressing so much that I've been forgetting the true purpose in going to She Speaks. To hear a Word from God meant just for me. If I'm too busy worrying over my 2 speeches, I will miss Him whispering in my ear. So thankful for godly women to pull me back into reality.

How beautiful! I loved your post!

I AM ready: I brought my heart opened so our sweet Lord can speak to it!

I'm here at the hotel! She Speaks starts tomorrow! Can't wait to see what the Lord has in storage for me!

I love you! And I loved meeting you here! You are simply beautiful!
