  1. Great blog, Carol! About a year and a half ago God put it on my heart to write. I’ve written a book and I’m currently in the process of making some revisions. I’ve attended the Speak Up Conference for the past two years and have received some great feedback, advice, and tools that are helping me to fulfill what God has called me to do. I also believe that even if only one person is ministered to through my writing it will absolutely be worth it.

      Thank you, Dana! God is doing powerful things through you! I’m so excited to read your book! I know it will be powerful!

  2. I want to be all in writing a book for divorced women. I want church leaders to have a deeper understanding of what divorced women need from the church.

    1. Carol Ensminger says:

      “All in” is exactly what God is asking us! Your topic is so good. I remember being so unheard, undervalued and misunderstood after my divorce so thank you for hearing His call and being ALL IN!

    Encouraging and challenging blog. I was a first year Speak Up attendee recently and am thankful for the push it gave me to get my butt going on my YES. I know God has wanted me to write, but I didn’t know the direction and have “wandered” in indecision with this calling. Speak Up helped give me direction in this. I have been working on my website and blog as my starting point. I’m so excited! I can’t wait to start posting my blogs and am thankful for the way God uses a variety of people to speak into our lives. Thank you Katie for your obedience and congrats! And thank you Carol for this encouragement and push. And a huge thanks to all the Speak Up people whom God used to ignite my passion again, direct me to set some goals, get writing, and start submitting. By next week I will be able to push the “publish” button on my website/blog.
