Jenni -Mt Hermon Writer Conference
I have update my fundraising goal to account for the nearly $1,000 already donated for last year's expenses (I couldn't figure out how to 0 that out, so the first part raised here was already spent for last year), travel expenses and GoFundMe fees.
Thank you for allowing God to help you join in this amazing blessing! Your prayers are invaluable and if God both gives you desire and ability to help with our financial goal, this would be a huge blessing too!

This remaining $395 request will completely cover the remaining cost of this year's tuition need, account for Go-Fund_Me fees deduction, and provide some funds for meals and travel.
I have dropped my funds request by $3,000 because my travel buddy and I each have received enough outside funds that I am under $400 from meeting my need. My conference buddy is still awaiting God's final provision too, but I'm taking this funds request down to just my need and if extra comes in, I can share with her. :)
So, bottom line, our registrations are in, our deposits are paid, and we have until early March to make final conference payments.
Meanwhile, the final draft of my book is 1/4 completed. After 5 years of struggling to write with brain injury, I started fresh and scrapped the old manuscript. God has blessed and allowed me to get through 1/4 of the rewrite since mid November, even with the holidays and travel happening during this season.
Thank you so much for your love, financial support, and especially your prayers!
The $4,500 requested here includes last year's conference, as I couldn't zero out previous fundraising, so nearly $1,000 of this was already spent a year ago! (I didn't know to request a cushion to account for fees that we be deducted by GoFundMe last year, thus last year's requested amount was lower.)
Of the additional $3,500 requested, I now have $200, less GoFundMe's cut. If I can raise the rest by the end of January, there is a $75 per person discount for registering before Feb. 1, 2017, so that would drop the need by another $150. Basically, the two of us could attend the entire conference if we can raise a little over $3,000 more before the end of January. If we only go for the main conference and not the extra training, this cuts about $400 off each pricetag.
Thank you for your prayers and support!
