    I would like to attend the Compel Womens conference in Sioux City Iowa because my sister lives there and I would love to spend time with her there.

  2. Angela Jones says:

    I am a fairly new christian and hungry for the word, I have two wonderful daughters that are eager to know God. Woman like you help me teach and understand God’s word better. I still have a long ways to go and want to teach my daughters the right way of this world and to center their lives around Him. Seeing you would be such an honor for all of us.

    I can’t make Sioux City but I could make the March 23, 2013 conference in Hauppauge, New York so would like to enter the drawing for tickets there. I would bring my 30 year old daughter that’s just been through a physically and emotionally abusive marriage and now divorce. I think this would be helpful for both of us on so many levels, thank you!

  4. I live no where near any of your upcoming events, but I would love to win a copy of “A Confident Heart”

  5. I live in Sioux City and had planned on attending th conference. I read your book and did the doubt diet. The wisdom I gained from your book has helped me tremendously because I’ve doubted myself for years. I’m 38 and I am finally seeing myself as God sees me. I had planned on taking my stepdaughter with me to the conference because she is so much like me in many ways. I want to see her grow into a confident woman and not have her take 30 + years like I did. I say “planned” because I hadn’t bought our tickets yet and about 10 days ago my husband was assaulted and was in ICU for two days. He is recovering, thank God, but the funds I had planned on for paying for the conference will not be available now. I praise God that He has been faithful and I am confident that He is providing everything we need. I know He is a Good God and that He will be with us through this time.
    I thank you for being obedient to the call that God has placed on you. You’re definitely helping many women to live boldly for Christ!

    • I’ve been thinking about my post and I in no way want to come across as “poor me”. 🙂 I am very thankful to still have my husband and to be here today. It’s a real joy to be able to share in God’s goodness and to be able to share His blessings with those around me. 🙂

  6. I wish I were close enough to make it !! Would love to be there 🙂
    I’m entering for the book giveaway, though !!

  7. Oh Renee, I’d love to hear you in Iowa!! Wish I didn’t live 5+ hours away!! Praying for all who will be there…trust God will provide what they need to hear! God spoke to me thru your quick video and the article…good reminders of what He’s whispered thru you before! Thanks for being a light for Him Renee!!! Blessings to you, Jill

    One of my best friends is Karen, the mother of four, all under ten years of age.
    She is a piano teacher, her husband the music director at a local church, and
    between her family, her own teaching and playing at her church she leads a very busy life
    and has little time to spend on herself.

    Yet she always finds more time to help and to give to others. I take piano lessons from her and thoroughly enjoy the love of music that she brings to her job and makes learning so much fun.
    Plus I’m doing this at the age of 53 so I’m not an easy student.

    A year ago a mutual friend of ours lost her husband in a tragic small plane crash.
    With three kids in college things have been rather tough but Karen promised
    that she would continue to offer piano lessons to the youngest girl still in high school until she finishes.
    And she would do without charge, so that Megan could continue her music training until she was ready to go to college.

    This is only one small example of the many things that Karen does in her life to show exactly how to model
    a Christ-like life. Yet she struggles like the rest of us, and we laughed together over some of the things were reading in your book A Confident Heart this summer. We discovered that we were both reading it independent of each other and learning so much about ourselves. I know she would love the opportunity to go see you speak in person and would like to get these tickets to give to her. Thank you.

  9. Welcome to Iowa! I would love to go to the Compel Conference. No one from Proverbs 31 comes to our state so it would be a real joy to hear you in person. I lead a women’s small group bible study from our church and last year we did your Confident Heart book. I would love to bring someone from that study with me. I hope you enjoy our mid-west hospitality and safe travels. You never know when the next snow storm will blow in!

    Hi Renee!

    Thank you for this wonderful opportunity that you have made available to all of the women, including me! It has been such a long, long time since I have financially been able to go to any women’s conferences. It would bless me to be able to take my sister along with me to this conference! We both need a time of refreshing and rejuvenation from our busy lives and schedules. What an honor and a privilege it would be for both of us to attend your Compel Conference in Iowa! I definitely need to be lavished and hear God’s word and heart for me and I know it would really bless my sister as well! I would be forever grateful for being allowed this opportunity to come to your conference to be refreshed, with a new perspective and outlook on my life and also for my sister’s life. Especially starting out with a new year in front of both of us. I know that my sister would enjoy this conference as well as I would. Thank you in advance for considering both me and my sister to be able to come to your conference and be a part of something wonderful! We love you, Renee!

  11. I so wish I lived closer to be able to hear you speak! I would love to enter the book giveaway. I had a copy but gave it to a friend and would love to have another copy! Thank you and happy new year!

    I started attending the Copel Conference in Sioux City 3 years ago. This will be my 4th time attending. The first year I went alone, had to check it out.. Every year since I have taken someone new along. I usually buy their ticket as it is someone who would not be able to attend on her own. What a blessing these conferences have been to me and to those I have taken. I am so looking forward to hearing you speak. It will be a great honor to receive a free ticket so I can extend my giving further.

  13. Brenda Scott says:

    The heart of our country is IOWA! Thank you for your ministry. I would love to see/hear you in person. God speaks through you everytime I hear you. I led a small group of ladies through A Confident Heart last year and we all grew so much closer to Jesus because of it. I would be honored to receive the tickets and would bring a woman that still struggles with her priorities and confidence…myself.

  14. I can’t attend the Iowa conference but would love to attend the one in Tallahassee, FL on April 27th. I live in Gainesville, FL and if you ever get close, I would love to hear you speak. I have read one of your books and would love to read A Confident Heart also. I would love to take my sister who doesn’t go to church now to hear you. She and I would have the day together to get closer to each other and especially for me to show her HIS love in a more full way through you. Thank you for all you do to help out women. You truly are a blessing to many. I receive all of the daily devotions from your sight and love them. I forward them to people all the time, especially my kids. They are right on target.

  15. Jennifer Klemple says:

    I would love to attend the conference in Overland Park KS.
    It looks like it is a women’s retreat.
    I would like to take my mom or my sister or another friend possibly.

    thank yoU!

  16. I didn’t realize you were going to be this close to me!! I would love to go, and I have so many friends I’d love to be able to bring!! Unfortunately, I have another commitment that evening, but if I were to win, I’d give each ticket to a friend – both of whom I work with in women’s care ministry in our church. I introduced them both to your book, and one of them is now considering leading A Confident Heart bible study next semester! Either way, I’ll definitely be sharing this event with them because I know it would bless their socks off to be able to hear you speak!!

  17. Share via webcast, those of us who cant travel, need your spiritual uplifting too!

  18. I would love the oppourtunity to take my daughter to the Legacy Church Women’s Retreat in Overland Park, KS on April 12, 2013 to learn how to live Confidently in Christ. Please and thank you.

  19. I would love to win (even though it is 5 hrs away, I would try to make it) and I would take my friend Jill who left a comment above. Why would I like to go? To hear you speak again, of course. I would also love to meet two gals I know will be there Leila Chealey (who I met through blogging) and Jen Sandbulte (who is on the Compel Leadership Team and who came to Rise & Shine when Lysa spoke). 🙂

  20. I don’t live near any of your speaking events sadly. Can I still enter the book giveaway?

  21. I would love to attend this conference!! I live about an hour away from Sioux City!! I would take either my mom or my sister! It would be so much fun! I read your book “A Confident Heart” and loved it!

  22. Renee, I want to let you know just how much we enjoyed doing a study on “A Condifent Heart”. Eleven ladies from our Church here in Virginia, got together for a small group study on your book. What a wonderful experience and life changeing experience for us all. While reading your book, we discovered, we also had some experiences like yours. We all could identify so much with you. After finishing the book, we were disapointed, we wanted to keep going with more. Thank you so much for writing this wonderful book and sharing it with us all. As for me, I know I will keep your book and keep rereading it so much. Thank you. May God bless you always..

  23. Melissa Hortin says:

    Hi Renee, I live in Australia so unfortunately cannot attend the conference but I would love a chance to win a copy of your book”A confident heart”.xxx

  24. I would love to attend in Overland Park, KS as it is only an hour away from me – and to be able to bring a friend would be fabulous! A night away with christian women would be an answer to prayer about now.

    God Bless!

    Hello my name is Shelia Broom; I attend Centerville United Methodist Church.
    I would love to attend any one of your conferences.
    Sadly none are being held in my hometown of Centerville Georgia, but a road trip is not out of the question.
    3 are close enough for some of my Sunday school ladies and me to attend.
    Grace FULL in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on Friday February 1st, Rejuvenation for the Soul in Huntsville, Alabama on Friday March 1st or the one day conference at Wildwood Church in Tallahassee Florida all of these are close enough for a road trip
    Please prayfully accept my request for tickets to any of these conferences.
    I would love to bring one or more of my Sunday school ladies with me to one of these events.
    Your book is our current study and we absolutely love “The Confident Heart”.
    We all look forward to Sunday mornings to get together and discuss the material.
    With each chapter someone is always ready to talk about how God has touched them during our study, which is why we are only on chapter 8.
    God has not only blessed our Sunday school class but our church as well.
    3 ladies joined our class since we began our study “The Confident Heart” and they also joined the church along with their husbands and children.
    God is so good!! We gained 3 ladies, 2 husbands and 1 youth and 1 elementary school student.
    One of the children got baptized and is working and serving in our food pantry after school.
    I believe with my whole heart this would not have happened without your book!
    It has given us the security and affirmation about a God who loves us unconditionally and a God of second chances.
    Your writing assures us that we are not different from other women.
    We share the same fears and same doubts as others, but most of all we share the same God who gives us solutions to these fears and doubts.
    Thank you so much for your book and sharing your story with us.
    You make it all so real for all of us.
    Please find tickets for some of us in the “Sisters” Sunday school class
