I have been bursting the spill the beans on this secret for months. And tonight is the night!
On March 15, 2012 I published this post. 
I had a huge dream and strong push in my heart to host a Dallas conference. 
Then I started having complications with my pregnancy with Apple and heard a soft whisper to wait.

Then two sweet girls scooped me up and asked me to walk along side them in their dream and that was an incredible honor. An honor to see God use them and to see their dreams come true. 

But I still had a pull in my heart. I still had my vision and my dream. 
So today is the day I tell you that I took the leap. 
Emily Anderson and Danielle Burkleo also have a dream and ideas and creativity and hopes  

and all of this collided into one beautiful event, 

Hope Spoken.
We have to be brave with our stories so that others can be brave with theirs. 

Next Friday March 1 we are officially going to put our tickets on sale and share with you an amazing treat for the first 20 who purchase those tickets!

Hope Spoken is a women's conference where we all can come to know Jesus more, and make Him known in our lives. Our conference will be filled with stories. Stories of Christ in each of our lives, and how we can use these stories for His glory. This is a weekend to rest and feel His love, to lay burdens and hurts down and feel His grace. We want to let women know that they are enough, to encourage women to use their passions, their words, and their creativity for the Lord. We, above all else, want to glorify Jesus' name and share the hope we have in Him.

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. // Romans 5:1-5

Who is Hope Spoken for?
Women. You, your sister, your mother, your best friend, women seeking Hope in Jesus Christ, and Him alone. This conference is for women of all ages. We want to strongly emphasize that, although many of us involved in this conference are bloggers, this conference is not just for bloggers. 

I would love it if you would join me.
I would love it if you would help me spread the word.

Dreams coming true here.

  7. Wish we weren't so far away - this is going to be be amazing and so POWERFUL, I just know it! If you need specific prayers - add me to your prayer list and let me know how I can pray for those who will be able to make it! <3 Em

  8. So happy for you Casey!
    As I was reading your description all I could think about was how peaceful and safe this sounds. A place where women can embrace what Jesus has called them to.
    Wishing you the best!

  9. I hope I can come to this!!! Sounds amazing!

    Way to dream!

  10. Maybe I am so tired and not reading all of this - but when and where is it? It sounds amazing!

  11. Very cool. I wish you the best with this step forward!
    God bless!

  12. Case, I could not be more proud to be a part of this with you. Seriously. I love you so much. And how on earth will we wait another whole year!?

  13. Wow what an amazing honor that is. and what an amazing journey this will be for you. I know God is going to be working and walking with each of you. I cant wait to read about it.

  14. oh my goodness, I am so thrilled for you! God truly gives us such good dreams. I wish I could be there, but will be praying for His hand to be on every minute of planning.

  15. This is great, love what it's all about. :)

  16. This sounds like something I'd love to go to, and even better since already a DFW girl! When is it, and how much are the tickets?

  17. I can't wait to hear the details for this. I live 3 hours away from Dallas, and I would LOVE to come. I love what you wrote about being brave with your story. It's hard to make myself vulnerable enough to write about personal precious feelings and experiences. That sometimes lead to mean comments and hurt. But it always leads me to encouraging others to be who they secretly want to be. I've felt so inspired as I blog about my feelings about fulfilling God's role for me as a wife and a mother because it is freeing for others (http://lifemedschoolwife.blogspot.com/2013/02/why-im-mom.html?showComment=1361596576248#c1941820727089785386). We have to be brave. I would love to be a part of this any way I can; can't wait! Thank you for being brave :)
