"This is a fantastic conference which allows God to minister to places of the heart!"

Can we be honest? When was the last time you felt truly accepted and able to just be yourself....at church?
If you're like many women today, the answer to that question is disappointing.
Many women feel like church is a place where they have to have it all together before they set foot in the door. You know how that story goes: Pretend everything is okay. Smile and wave. Church is a family social commitment - one more place you've gotta have perfect hair and makeup to fit in, and your real life problems are politely ignored.
The problem is...
That story has an unhappy ending. Women eventually figure out that they don't need more social commitments. We need connection, support and community. REAL community. A place where we aren't judged (even when we forget our lipstick and mascara) and where we aren't guilted into working in the church nursery or bringing yet another pie to the church bake sale.
We decided to do something about it
We saw an opportunity to interrupt that sad story that's playing out in churches all over America. Tired of the "women's ministry status quo," we asked ourselves what it would look like to create a space where women could really connect with each other...and begin to write a new story. One written with the ink of authenticity and laid bare for everyone to say, "Me, too."
A place where women could cry and laugh and be real with each other.
We wrestled with this big idea until we landed on something new. An idea that only broken-and-healed women who have put their heads and heart together to make something happen could dream up.
Our aim is to help women see that the same old story with the same old unhappy ending doesn't have to be their story.
"I highly recommend this conference! It was a spirit-filled weekend full of emotion and inspiration. The speakers and organizers are genuine and friendly and strong in their faith. This weekend was definitely worth my time."
