By the time May arrives, if you’re anything like me, you’re ready for a break. This spring seems to have been busier than ever, but this is actually a good thing. Looking back, I am both amazed and energized by all that has happened. God has blessed in so many incredible ways. Here is just a sampling:
Synergy2008 is the history books now. Thanks to all of you who attended and all who prayed. The weekend was incredible. Women gathered in Orlando from all over the United States, Canada and overseas. Many churches, ministry organizations and seminaries were represented.
This was the first year Gifted For Leadership co-sponsored the Synergy conference with the Synergy Women’s Network. We are thrilled to have them on our team!
Here’s what one woman (who came from China just for the weekend) wrote:
I was overwhelmed by the outpouring of God’s kindnesses and encouragements to me throughout the weekend! The whole conference felt deeply rooted in both heart connections to pursue the Lord and strong biblical/theological foundations to fuel such a fire. The writing track in particular was extremely helpful towards practical tips and excellent resources. I left feeling empowered and energized to pursue this gift!
Here’s a surprising piece of news: Barely two months after its release, The Gospel of Ruth is already in a second printing! If you haven’t had a chance to read it yet, you might want to add it to your summer reading list.
Great book. I’m recommending it to my reading friends. Not to be missed!
I’ve just started reading this one, and I love it. I have recently finished reading When Life and Belief Collide and had previously read and loved Lost Women of the Bible. I appreciate the insight into all of the stories. I love all your writings! Thank you for writing them!
Will this book be translated into Spanish?
Yes. The Spanish translation is scheduled to release in September 2009.
I read this book and then did a Bible study on the book of Ruth this summer. The women loved the study and now want to start another. So, Carolyn, do you have another book we can use? I’ve read When Life and Beliefs Collide and just finished Lost Women of the Bible. So what’s next?
