Does your faith walk seem more like a fear walk sometimes? Many of us can answer yes to that question. But it doesn’t have to be that way. God desires a faith in us that is filled with joy and hope and courage even in the most challenging times. That kind of faith is more than possible. At The Living Bravely Conference – through the main sessions, the breakout sessions, the worship, and everything in between, you will be encouraged to take your next brave step toward freedom in your walk with God. Ladies, come and join us for a day of worship and workshops, creativity and community. My ministry team and I look forward to spending the day with you. Let’s be brave girls together!

A Brave Invitation to Come Alive It can be very easy for us women to find ourselves bored, busy or burdened, numbing our hearts from living fully alive If Jesus promised in John 10:10 that He came to give us life, how can we accept His invitation to come alive? Let’s journey together bravely to accept Jesus’s invitation to live fully alive.

Obey … A Small Word That’s a Big Deal! What does it truly mean to obey God … and why is it harder some days than others? Using Matthew 22:34-40, we will discover God’s plan for obedience. The plan itself is extremely simple, but in our sinful nature, we often make obedience harder than it needs to be. Together we will learn some positive and practical ways to practice obedience in our daily lives.
