What’s a nice Jewish girl doing in a place like this?

Jewish girl. Disco band. Salvation mine.

Today’s blogpost is an entry to win a scholarship to attend the She Speaks conference in July. The contest was to write a story in six words. I thought it couldn’t be done, but you just read my story - I was that Jewish girl. Who would have thought that spending weekends at a cottage in the Hamptons visiting bars and disco dancing the night away would lead a “nice Jewish girl” to find her Messiah. But that’s how it happened, the short version anyway.

My testimony “I Was A Jewish Tax Collector” can be found at: http://eternitycafe.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-was-jewish-tax-collector.html

The She Speaks conference was the catalyst for me to begin the journey into writing, including this blog. It is my heartfelt prayer to attend the conference again this July. If not through this contest entry, then praying that the Lord will provide another way.

PS Thanks for sharing about the chiropractor in Waxhaw. I started going to him and he is wonderful.

Susan: Your six words carry a lot of meaning. I went back to read your testimony. I certainly will pray for you to win this contest.
