I started praying God would provide the money through journal sales at an upcoming retreat.
Whenever an author, or journal creator in my case, presents a talk, they must determine how many books to bring or ship. Historically, fifty percent of retreat attendees buy a journal if one is not included in the retreat registration. So, if 50 women register, I have to bring at least 25 journals.
I said to God, "If you make a way for me to go to the conference by providing the funds, I would be so grateful. If I sell 100 percent I will take it as a sign to attend.”
Something happened that weekend that had never happened before. There were 55 women at the retreat, and I sold a little over 55 journals. Not to each woman, but some women bought multiples for their small group or Bible Study. The total came out to 100 percent.
That was my answer, and God orchestrated the rest.
