“Digging Deeper” w/ Tracy Moore
God longs for us to know Him and walk with Him. And He has graciously given us the tools to do that. This class, led by Tracy Moore, will help engage women in the pursuit of a lifelong adventure in learning to love God with all out heart, soul, mind and strength.

“got dirt?” w/ Renee Rutledge
Finding God’s purpose for our lives by allowing Him to use us… ‘dirt’ and all. Presented by Celebrate Recovery director, Renee Rutledge. “God uses our dirt for His good purpose and plan! God’s purpose for you is for YOU only!”

~And, these are just the sessions I made it to! There were many others offered throughout the day! I know I’ve said it before, but I thank God every day for this church. I have never known a more genuine, God-adoring group in my life. And I am so proud to be a part of it.

As you see, we had a women’s conference yesterday, from 8:30 – 4:00 and it was so amazing. I can only imagine the work that went into pulling it all together, but it certainly wasn’t in vain. It was a huge success. We had praise and worship, followed by a wonderful guest speaker to start us off. Then we were treated to snacks at the cafe. By then, it was time to break off into smaller groups and head to our first class. At the end of that, they presented to us a HUGE, wonderful lunch brought to us by our own Ms. Hilda. From there, we went back into main session for more praise and worship. Next, we headed off to our second class of choice – followed by more snacks and then on to class #3. To wrap it all neatly up, we had more worship and praise (so well done by our musically-gifted girls!) and Marie Tittle to close us out.

SUCH an awesome day for all who made it out! And I am just so thankful for each of the girls who made it happen. For all those who donated their time and energy. For all those who labored over the delicious food. And for all those who humbled themselves enough to bare their souls in order to glorify God and encourage each and every one of us participants.

  1. Sounds wonderful. I’m so glad you were able to make it…and thanks for sharing. Reminds me of what Anita Renfroe said, “You must be present to win.”
