She Speaks Scholorship
Hey friends,
Can you believe it? Proverbs 31 She Speaks Conference is on the horizon.

Before I get to this great opportunity I wanted to post my latest yummy clean chocolate recipe:
Steffie's Yummy Chocolate Delight:

2 tablespoons Almond Flour
3/4 scoop Chocolate Whey Protein Powder
1 tsp. vanilla (I add a bit more)
1 egg
Dash of cinnamon
2 teaspoons Grape seed oil (You can use canola)

Mix together and microwave 1 - 1 1/2 minutes.

It smells like chocolate cake and tastes great.
I eat this for breakfast and it keeps me filled up for hours.

I wanted to share this post with you from Glynnis Whitwer, editor of P31 Woman.
She asked those of us on the team to help spread the word about this wonderful opportunity!

Have you ever had a dream?

A dream that you tucked deep in your heart, and were afraid to even speak it?Every year women come to the Proverbs 31 Ministries She Speaks Conference with just such dreams. It may be a dream to write, or speak. It may be a dream to lead a women's Bible study, or start a ministry to unwed mothers.
As the director of the writer's track at She Speaks, I meet women every year who are wondering if they have what it takes to write. They might think the dream is foolish ... because who would read what they have to say? But the dream beats so hard in their chest they just had to come to the conference.However, they tenderly protect that dream, even as they put themselves out there for all the world to see.Is that you?

Do you have a dream to write but haven't taken the first step? Or have you been writing for awhile but know God is prompting you to take the next step in your writing journey?

Today, I have the privilege of announcing a contest to help someone take that next step of obedience in their dream to write.

Thanks to the generosity of author extraordinaire, Cecil Murphey, I will be giving away one scholarship to attend the She Speaks 2010 Conference, held July 30-August 1 in Concord, North Carolina.

He's coming to the conference and will be speaking to all the writers, and meeting one-on-one for some informal coaching. And to win it, all you have to do is write an article that would be appropriate for publication in the P31 Woman Magazine.
We'll pick one article as the winner. In addition to winning the scholarship, we'll also publish that article in the magazine. Kind of like icing on the best cake you have ever eaten!
We may also select some honorable mentions, and will publish those if we do.
So - how do you win this amazing prize? Here are the rules for the She Speaks Scholarship Contest:
1. You must not have attended She Speaks in past years.
2. Write a 500-1000 word article that would be appropriate for publication in the P31 Woman Magazine. See the guidelines on the link to the magazine, and see archived feature articles for a sample of our style.
3. Only enter one (1) article per person.
4. You can either attach the article in a Word document or include it in the email. Include a creative title and your name.
5. Email the article to me at editor@proverbs31 on or before Thursday April15, 2010 at midnight.
6. If you have a blog, please help us promote the She Speaks Conference by writing about this contest and linking to the She Speaks Conference site. If you want to post the She Speaks button on your site, feel free to copy it. But it is not a requirement.
7. The winner of this contest will be awarded a scholarship for the cost of one person's registration for the 2010 She Speaks conference.T
he value of this scholarship is $575 which includes your conference materials, conference registration, 2 nights at the conference hotel and meals associated with the conference.
Please note it does not include any travel expenses.
Also, you will be assigned a roommate or you have the option to pay the extra charge for a private room. This scholarship is transferable, but only for someone who has not attended the conference. It cannot be traded for cash.Your article will be evaluated by the P31 Woman editing team, and we will announce the winner on April 21st.

This is the first year we have scholarships to offer, and we are thanking God and Cecil Murphey for this opportunity. Please pray about what to submit. And, if you aren't a writer, please send a note to someone you know who is and encourage her to enter!
Your encouragement might just make all the difference in inspiring her to pursue her dreams!

I have been praying about attending "She Speaks" for the past two years and now I feel a passion for the Lord like never before in my life. I have always had a gift of public speaking and now actually teach it at a college level but my new passion is to share my story of struggle and searching for Christ's love while in college. I know this conference would give me so much valuable experience to help keep other young women from making the same mistakes I did in college! I long to share the love of the Lord through speaking! My husband has been laid off for over a year and while the Lord has provided me with 3 jobs...there just isn't quite enough left for the conference. I would be so grateful for a scholarship! Thank for you the opportunity! Blessings, Michelle

How can they hear the message if we do not speak? My heart burns to share His word with other women. I want to help generate thirst and hunger...I want my words to have value because they are spoken about and for Him. I want the women of my generation and those after me to become the new Deborahs, Lydias, Tabithas and Priscillas. My gifting and my passion is to teach. If one spark can be ignited, then the flame can be fanned, and a fire will begin. I want to fan the flames.

I have been a single mom for almost 3 years. The night I discoverd my husband's extra marital activities was a turning point for me wherein I finally saw Jesus as my only true security. I had always looked to my dad (who had passed away 6 months prior) or my husband. The relationship I have now with Christ is exceedingly and abundantly beyond anything I could have possibly imagined I could ever have. God has very recently called me to become a Personal Guidance Minister for Scope Ministries and I begin training for this in May. I am so excited about sharing my experiences and the love of Christ with other single mothers that I cannot right now keep up with my fingers as I type! I think that I am much more comfortable with speaking than I am with writing and I have never been to a "She Speaks" conference! This would be an amazing experience for me, especially right now during the dawning of my calling! Thanks for providing the possibility of being blessed with a scholarship to this event! I don't think I will be able to attend without such a blessing this year, but maybe someday soon!

The Lord has often spoken to me about a life of public speaking. I have stage fright so I told him I thought he must have the wrong person. I need a chance to learn so that I can be able to obey my Lord and get over my jitters. We are trying hard to get out of debt so I cannot spend the money right now.

I want to speak on healing along with the healing God has done in me. He said to me “I have delivered you for a purpose.” Part of the reason I have stage fright has to do with overcoming my perfectionism but also fighting against the lie Satan put in my mind many times that “No one wants to hear what I have to say.” I speak softly and often remember my parents criticizing me and laughing at me when I was a child. I would love to go to She Speaks with Christian women so I can also receive prayer and be freed to speak what God has placed on my heart to share.
