She Speaks!

My brain might bust from all that I've learned today at the SheSpeaks conference. Not to mention I might cry at how awesome God is and all He's already revealed to me through this experience. I prayed for a heart ready for all He had for me and I am overwhelmed by his faithfulness and how He has answered that prayer. Friendships have been made and the spiritual recharge I so desperately needed is in full swing ( I don't exactly have the time to read my Bible and pray the way I did 7 months ago).

I have met the most amazing ladies! I'll be introducing some of them to you on my blog next week. They are writers, speakers and just downright passionate about the Lord! They have so much to offer...I can't wait for you to meet them!

There's so much I want to share, but I promised myself I would go to bed at a decent time tonight. Today has been a whirlwind and tomorrow I meet with four of the biggest Christian book publishers. It dawned on me today just how big this opportunity is! I'm a little intimidated to be meeting with one of the biggest Bible publishers EVER!

Tomorrow I'll also have the opportunity to hear Tom Davis speak. He's written popular books like "Fields of the Fatherless" and "Red Letters" and is passionate about Orphan Care and adoption. Maybe he'll want to endorse my book ;-)

  1. Jennifer - I so wish I had gotten to talk to you more at She Speaks. I have a heart for Africa and adoption! I have never adopted but would love to partner with you about adoption. My book is about us as spiritual orphans.

    I'm excited to see how it comes out with Tom Davis!! ;)

    1. Jamie - I would LOVE to hear more about your book! That sounds awesome! We are no longer on the path to adopt from Ethiopia. It's a long story, but we are planning to adopt again. We really have a heart for th African American and biracial children who need families here in the U.S. But my heart is still in Ethiopia and I dream of going there someday. Let's chat soon....

    2. I love it, Jennifer! Yes, we will chat soon!
