- writer- ok I am mommy to 5 kids ages 9, 5, 4, and 7 months, and I have a son Matthew who is with Jesus he passed away when he was a 10 weeks old. I really want to write a childrens book about heaven. I read one good one to my daughter when my son died and I think it is such a hard topic and there is not much out there for parents in this area. I have no idea how to get started in this!
- blogger- ok if you look around at my blog I am not super gifted at writing. I have so many ideas on what I want to share but I cant figure out how to go about it in the most productive way.I guess I am so much more witty in my mind than I am on the blog, believe I crack my friends up all the time..... also hello Melanie, Shannon, and Sophie all in one place, what a fun time that would be!
- Speaker- I am the coordinator of my church's MOPS group and seriously ask any lady in my group and they would tell you I need some help in this area. I get up every meeting and I seem to make a fool of myself, well that or I am so funny they cant stop laughing (mayybe both?!?!?)I think I have a natural gift of speaking but I am all over the place. I tend to make people laugh and comortable but I want them to be interested in what I say and say some imprtant things. I would love to share the things that the Lord has done in my life as far as being a wife and mom at 18, and losing a child but it is hard to get those things into a condensed timed talk without leaving out a lot of things.
- Leader- alright like I said I am the coordinator of a mops group and I work with the greatest group of women in the world! I am certain this conference will help me be a better leader for them and give me some great ideas on how to minister to them and keep them excited about the vision of our group.
ok and lastly I know as probably all the others moms are pointing out not many of us would be able to spend the cash to go acroos the country to a conference with out the kids on a normal basis so the chance to win this scholarship is awesome. maybe I can even talk another one of my leaders into going with me and that could be such a fun girls weekend! Seems like the only problem will be picking the seminars I want to go to!
Thanks for the chance to win!
