I cannot even begin to tell you the story of the last few days.  Beginning with company visiting, blown out tires, broken legs, debilitating pinched nerve, and a doctors request for multiple vials of blood from a one year old to try to decide if there is a very ugly decease to battle…it has been a week. We seem to be in the cross-hairs of the enemy.

The enemy is attacking me and my family.  I should count it joy and an honor that I can concern the enemy by being a contributor to the Kingdom of Heaven.  But when it touches my family I begin to pray with sword sharpened. There is no mystery to this story, and he too, is in the cross-hairs of the Leader of the Army of God and me!

In two weeks I will be attending She Speaks.  I am sure that the Lord has provided this time and place for me to learn to be a better speaker for Him.  And there lies the root of the attack.  God is moving me forward and the enemy is trying to distract and block my way.

Would you please consider praying for me for the next two weeks as I prepare and step into the She Speaks conference?  Perhaps praying for the other women attending as well.  This is a big step for all who attend and I’m sure I’m not the only one whose family is feeling the resistance as the Father presses us forward.

Much of my time for he next two weeks will be practicing a three-minute talk and a five-minute talk I will give to the Proverbs 31 women for an evaluation.

If you would commit to praying for me the next two weeks I would appreciate it.

Here are some pictures from my week. Happy Weekend!

Love You,   Di
