Kim Hicks | FINDING BALANCE - I WANT IT ALL

Isn’t that the goal of every woman? We can bring home the bacon, fry it up in the pan, and never let him forget he’s a man! How do we thrive under this kind of pressure?

 


Wendy Porter | BUILDING COMMUNITY - LEANING IN TO BE LIFTED UP

We are called by Jesus to make disciples of all nations. He didn't call for us to do that alone. We are to do it together in community. In order to do grow God's kingdom, we need to lean in to our community.


Danielle Kogut | TRUE HEALTH AND WELLNESS - MY JOURNEY FROM BROKEN TO FREEDOM IN THE LORD

It is an honor to share how God is walking me out of years of lies and strongholds to a place of freedom concerning health and wholeness. We will share an energetic time of hearing who He says we are, replacing the lies that weigh us down.


Jen Wagenmaker | LEARNING TO SAIL

Although we may not get to choose the things that happen to us is life, we do get to choose how we navigate through them.  Let's face it, life is hard and messy and we all have pain.  In this session you'll learn practical ways to embrace your greatest struggle and tools on how to turn it into something beautiful.


Michele Houghton | THRIVING WHEN YOU ARE BARELY SURVIVING

"Let him ask in faith without doubting." James 1:6-7 : In this break-out session we will talk about preparing to trust with faith through prayer and allowing Christ to win your battles for you. The Enemy would love to rob you of the joy Christ gives. Attendees will get a battle plan for allowing Christ the victory in their lives. 


Kerry Blum | WHEN LIFE GETS TOUGH... THEN WHAT?

We all have times when life throws us a curveball - when the unexpected falls in our lap and we find ourselves struggling to keep our heads above water.  We will talk about how we can navigate these dark places and use these times to grow closer to God and others who God has placed in our lives, ultimately leading us to embracing our new "normal" and finding joy, contentment, and gratitude in the present moment.


Jenn VanHekken | FINDING PEACE AT THE WELL

Have you ever realized that the God of the universe holds out his hand to us right when we need it the most: when we’re broken, hurting, walking away from him, questioning if he is really there, and even when we’re just busy and tired out from following our own agenda. Our God longs for us to come to him, regardless of our circumstances, and be filled with living water that satisfies and restores.  Wherever you are on your journey, whether you’re far from the creator or walking in stride but exhausted from the process, find yourself at the well today, and find God’s grace and peace in your circumstances.
