This past weekend I had the incredible privilege of speaking as a replacement for @jeffhenderson at the #shespeaks conference. It’s a conference created by @proverbs31ministries and @lysaterkeurst specifically crafted for writers and communicators.

The women I met at this conference were on another level!!! My greatest take-a-way was how FOR one another these women were. Often, it’s hard to be FOR someone when that same someone is doing exactly what you want to do and may even be more “successful” at it. Our inability to be FOR others is usually rooted in a deeply held belief that there is only one proverbial “slice of pie” and once God hands that to someone, our opportunity is lost. As James says in chapter 4, jealousy "slice of pie thinking" is what causes quarrels among us knocking our priorities out of order.
But this wasn’t the case at #shespeaks. Every woman I encountered saw the other not as a threat but as a sister, as someone worth championing. No one held on to their slice of pie because with God it never runs out. (And praise Him for that cause I love pie!). His opportunities to uniquely use us are un-ending.  I’ve never met @lysaterkeurst but her legacy that many spoke of this weekend helped me see why this culture exists.  She has created a sisterhood of woman who are in one others corner fully. Women who aren’t threatened by someone else success but instead celebrate it.

I’m inspired by these women who use their words and platform to build up on another.  #shespeaks

Nervous and excited I made my way to Concord Thursday morning for the first day of the SheSpeaks Conference. A bit uncomfortable, but trying to look confident, I finally find where I'm supposed to be and go straight to the restroom to realize I walked across the whole parking lot, through a hotel, down a long hallway in my new dress with the pockets hanging out 🤦🏼‍♀️ ugh!!! Brooke! Why do you do these things??
Well, anyways, I wasn't going to let that ruin my day! So off I go to register and make new friends. The first sweet lady I met had an incredible testimony of how her husband got shot at a rest area on Thanksgiving Day, he survived but is paralyzed from the waste down. They both still love the Lord, serve Him faithfully and praise Him for His goodness. Another lady shared with me that her husband passed away after coming home from a mission trip; she's a beautiful young lady who is still healing but was ready to use her testimony to point others to her faithful Father. This is just two of the many stories I heard over the following 3 days.
I said all this to say that my favorite part of this past weekend was undoubtedly the wonderful people I met.
There are many amazing people out there with beautiful testimonies of how God has faithfully been there for them, through tragedies I can't comprehend, through loneliness, brokenness and pain, these women stand boldly and say that they have a story to tell, and it's not a story about themselves but about Someone greater, stronger, Who has carried them through some of the worst days of their lives. The theme of their lives:
HE IS FAITHFUL
He never changes. So, today I remind you...What the enemy meant to destroy you with will become your greatest testimony of His goodness as He walks with you through it.
“Do you see what this means—all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we’d better get on with it. Strip down, start running—and never quit!" Hebrews 12 MSG

I can't wait to share more with you all about this past weekend 💜
Thanks so much for taking the time to read my post 😘

And if there's anything I've learned over my most recent years of parenting, and especially this past school year and my children being at two different schools... its the beauty of community and in letting other people invest in your children.
.
It's so easy to fear what would happen if you're apart, to hold tightly to the way you do things and then to want to be able do it all yourself and not ask for or receive help! And I get it because I've tried to do it!
.
But the true community, the rich kind and the kind that transforms and shapes your children, is where the true treasure lies.
.
And it's in the hearts of the people who love your children and who want to sow into them more joy, more love, more generosity and more of all the things God has taught THEM, that makes all the difference 💛
.
So here's to our community - our family, our friends, our teachers, our neighbors and everyone in between. You make our lives richer and you make our daughters better.

"But we know that you are god yours is the victory
We know there is more to come
That we may not yet see
So with the faith you've given us
We'll step into the valley unafraid, yeah

As we call out to dry bones come alive, come alive
We call out to dead hearts come alive, come alive
Up out of the ashes let us see an army rise
We call it to dry bones, come alive

God of endless mercy god of unrelenting love
Rescue every daughter bring us back the wayward son
And by your spirit breathe upon them show the world
That you alone can save
You alone can save

As we call out to dry bones come alive, come alive
We call out to dead hearts come alive, come alive
Up out of the ashes let us see an army rise
We call it to dry bones, come alive

So breathe, oh breath of God breathe
Now breathe, oh breath of God
Breathe, oh breath of God
Now breathe..." -Lauren Daigle

She comes alive. What "dry bones" need to come alive this week for us all? 📷 @melissa.hartmann

Being a mom of 4 boys (including this little blessing), I know first hand how easy it is to lose site of your personal goals and dreams. But I've come to realize that God doesn't add to our lives to take away the vision or passion that He's given us to succeed. He adds to our lives to help us grow to our full potential. Your dreams are STILL worth chasing and your vision is STILL worth achieving! Press forward... you got this! #SHEspeaks #motivation #success #Goaldigger #dreamchaser #Motherhood #Littleblessing

It comes at night. Almost always, it comes at night.
It begins with just a whisper of urgency, a small note of concern. It travels the currents in my brain, hitching a ride with firing neurons, grabbing the wheel of logical thinking and veering sharply off course.
Anxiety wrecks my nights.
_________________________
Anxiety makes me feel weak. And I hate that.
In the middle of an attack and usually afterward, I berate myself: “I should be stronger than this.”
_________________________
Writing about anxiety is not as therapeutic as you might think. But, I want you to know that even if you're certain of what you believe, even if your theology in God's sovereignty is solid, even if you're fine during the daytime--anxiety can still mess you up. I always think I should be stronger, but the truth is that anxiety makes me feel very, very weak.
Is that okay? What does my weakness say about God? Does my anxiety nullify my faith?

What are you building beloved? We are all building something. Is it a family, a career, an education, a dream, a ministry? This verse invites us to rest it in His hands. That doesn't mean we neglect to do the good work He has called us to do for that. But it does mean He is the builder. So maybe while we still have a list of tasks to complete today the first and best thing we do is seek His face. The first and best thing we do is recognize that every good and perfect gift comes down from the Father. We acknowledge that He is the builder and we only partner with Him in it. We ask Him to build it for His glory and we rest in Him. Because unless the Lord builds it, we labor in vain. #bruisedbutnotbroken #brave #liftupyoureyes #rest #heiswithus #heisfaithful #building #hope #shereadstruth #shespeaks #wordsmatter #writer #writinglife #widow #parenting #parentingafterloss #motherhood #momsofinstagram #momlife #lifeafterloss

As God has encouraged me with these words "Gifted To Fight" in times I was ready to quit on life, I pray this book encourages you in the same way.
