We are better together.
Women need other women to encourage them, cry with them, and laugh with them. Any age or stage of life we are in, we are truly better together. This is the theme for Covenant's Women's Conference this April 15th and 16th. I'm so excited to be speaking at this event, along with my fellow M.O.M. Initiative friends Stephanie Shott, Debbie Taylor Williams, and Melinda Means. I've had the chance to get to know these ladies over the years and I just know that by the end of this weekend, you will love their hearts as much as I do. Here's what I love about each of them:
Stephanie is a visionary and dreamer. She's the founder of The M.O.M. Initiative and led this conference in Jacksonville two years ago. She's also the writer of a great book for moms called The Making of a Mom.
Debbie reminds me so much of Beth Moore. She's a Texas girl, author of Plan A Mom in a Plan B World and is so passionate about prayer. She will literally pray with you the moment you tell her that you need prayers. She's also fearless...when we traveled to Colorado on our TMI Retreat, she rode the ski tube down the hill like a champ! Love her spirit!
Melinda and I met at our Jacksonville retreat and she has become such a good friend to me since then. I treasure her advice and love running into her at different women events. She is the women's ministry coordinator at her church and I loved reading her book Mothering From Scratch when it released last year. She's truly a gift!
The four of us represent the different stages of motherhood from being a grandmother, mom of adult children, teenagers, and preschoolers, so we really hope to relate to whatever stage of motherhood you might be in or about to begin.
This conference is not just for moms. We will be focusing our messages around a woman's heart and have sessions about relationships and leadership/mentoring. Even if you can only come for half of the day on Saturday, I encourage you to come and enjoy a weekend of renewal and encouragement. It's going to be lots of fun!
If you'd like a sneak peek at one of the talks I'll be leading, head on over to The M.O.M. Initiative to read more about when motherhood looks different than planned.
I hope you join us on April 15th & 16th!
Till next time, let your light shine,
