    I knew this story and still LOVED reading about it again! Welcome to the sisterhood, sweet Nicole! Praise God!

    1. Christine, I love telling the story. It is amazing what God will do when his children gather with praying hearts and submitted wills.

  2. Jenn -Wow! I love how Speak Up is much more than a writing/speaking conference. At its heart, it is about the power of the gospel to change lives and making Him known. Thank you for sharing a beautiful example of this!

    1. Kim, thank you for this comment. That’s been our goal since this training started four decades ago!

    2. I love God showing up and having his way. He quite often shows us his ways are not our ways, and our thoughts unlike his. But his ways surprise us and fill our lives with joy and excitement.

  3. Jenn, thank you for this powerful blog! This story touched me deeply.

    1. Carol your friendship and support mean the world to me. I am so blessed to be part of the SpeakUp family. Thank you for all you do.

  4. Jenn, thank you for sharing!
    Praise the Lord for your beautiful testimony of God’s power and presence during the SpeakUp Conference.
    Praise God for the redeeming work He did in your daughter-in-love – so precious, in the deepest sense of that word.
    Praise Him for the refreshment, restoration, and renewal that He did in your life and in the lives of so many of us during the conference.
    What a blessed time together in His presence.
    “Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands!” Psalm 90:17

    My come to faith in Jesus is a bit complicated and has 2 separate events. One as a child and then as a 30 year old. That story is in my current book I am writing.
