many of my friends are heading south today and tomorrow for a special gathering of women, Emerging Women's Leadership Initiative National Consultation held outside of atlanta. there will be 30 women from all walks of ministry life, multiple denominations and all age groups and various cultures. it will be an exciting time to share stories, dreams and visions and a time to build friendships and challenge each other to dream big for god!
my good buddy
bob carlton is organizing a prayer vigil for this event...so check out his link in my blog list and sign up!
even if you don't have a chance to sign up...pray for safe journeys and for all the details to come into place as the event begins.
as a woman in ministry and a mom, it is often soo hard to get out of dodge! not only do you have to get yourself ready, but you have to get your entire family ready for your departure! and this is the end of the school year in many areas, which means that stuff at home is super busy!
and while we are praying for this special gathering of women, let's pray for all the women in ministry that we know! those who have blazed trails for us! those who have encouraged us to be who we are and do what we do! why not send an email to someone who has been an encouragement to you this week, in honor of the 30 women who will be representing us in atlanta!
jesus thanks so much for the wonderful women in my life who have encouraged me to be who i am! thank you for all amazing women who are gathering in atlanta this week! fill them with your holy spirit! inspire them with your love and your vision! protect them as they travel and keep all they love safe while they are away! may their be a new wind of your spirit in all of us this week as we keep them close to you!
