Walking in Faith: A Practical Discussion

(with Jan Scott)

The Bible assures us that our Christian walk will include trials. Some will be minor. Some will be life-altering. But we are encouraged to cling to God’s promises. We are told to “walk in faith”.

Past conferences

 

2021 Embracing Biblical Womanhood Conference

Unworthy, Yet Worthy

Our 4th annual fall conference was held on Saturday, September 18th, 2021. What a wonderful, God-glorifying day!  Our keynote speaker, Amanda Boyd, spoke to us on the topic of “Unworthy, Yet Worthy”. We each participated in 2 workshops. There were 10 workshops to choose from ranging from practical topics like “Discover Your Organizing Style” to spiritual topics like “Then Comes the Mourning: Maneuvering through the Grief Process”. The food and fellowship was fabulous.  The day ended with a video compiled of testimonies from ladies in our church who have been made worthy through Christ.

If you weren’t able to attend, we missed you.  Please mark your calendar now to attend the 5th Annual conference on Saturday, September 17, 2022
