I grew up in a Christian home. My parents loved me and taught me about the love of God and the importance of living for Him. I’m thankful for my childhood but being raised in a Christian home doesn’t shield you from the pain of life.
I dealt with my share of insecurities and “not good enoughs”. I experienced my share of loss and difficult times. I made my share of mistakes. Through it all, I learned that I had to lean on Jesus for myself. I had to get to know Him and let Him make Himself real to me
Although there were difficult times, I’m thankful for all of those times. It is through the tough times that I learned how to live my life with passion and encourage others.
I see women, a lot of women, who are hurting, lonely and feeling not good enough. So many women carry pain and long for freedom. Every woman wants to have purpose and feel worthy. The women I see are incredible women – powerful, AMAZING women – who just need some encouragement, just like I did.
On October 20th a dream is coming true: we are launching Influence 2017.
The dream for Influence Conference was birthed out of the story of my life. I want to be an influence to women: to encourage and empower women to live free from the “not enoughs” in life. I want to come alongside other women as we all walk in freedom, living out our dreams while using the gifts and abilities that God has given us.
I see the influence women have – and the greater influence we can have for Christ – in our world and in the next generation
Something powerful happens when women come together on purpose and for a purpose. I want to provide that atmosphere for women
It takes a team effort. In June, I reached out to a group of women who God had laid on my heart and asked them to pray about being a part of the team to help move things forward toward the first conference this fall. We met for a weekend retreat: women from all over the country who took the time, effort and their resources to come to Nashville and jumpstart this ministry. Since then, we have been working hard on all of the details.
We can’t wait to see what God is going to do as a result of this conference
Let me invite you to the very first Influence Conference
I covet your prayers as we move forward! And I hope to see YOU at Influence 2017.
