A Beloved Daughter’s Mentality

Speaker:
Katie Reid
Sessions:
Saturday Session 3
Category:
Encouragement, Theme

Is it hard for you to receive? Do you feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders? Whether you are a mother or a mentor or both, it’s crucial to understanding that you are a daughter of God—not just a doer for God. Understanding that God’s grace is a gift to be received and not a prize to be earned, will free you to serve from a place of settledness instead of striving. There are good works to do, but those works are not what make you worthy. In this dynamic session, you will be encouraged to walk out your identity as a beloved daughter, and serve God from a place of strength and peace. Ephesians 2:8-10 is key verse for this message. This session is based off key themes from Katie’s book, Made Like Martha Good News for the Woman Who Gets Things Done.

Your dreams need the right atmosphere to grow to their potential. Every young lady wants to see the full potential of her dreams come to pass, but there has to be an atmosphere so that your dream can become a reality. “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope” Jeremiah 29:11 ESV. God’s plans and His dreams for His daughters are phenomenal, but they must be properly cultivated, nurtured, and protected. Let’s unpack God’s Word and see how practical His Word is for fulfilling His plan and purpose for your life and how you can set the atmosphere to move further, and faster in your kingdom purpose.

Discipleship happens best in the context of relationship… but how do we move our relationships past friendship into intentional discipleship? As women of God we are called to mirror Jesus in such a way that we bear the presence of the Holy Spirit to those around us in an authentic, purposeful way. By practicing the presence of Jesus, we become women who walk more closely with Him and naturally lead others to do the same. Come, join us for this insightful and heart changing discussion.

Category:
Encouragement, Pre-Conference, Theme

Have you ever looked in the mirror and struggled to believe that you are beautiful? As women it is very easy for us to compare our beauty to culture, our neighbor, our friend, or the person next to us in the gym. Is it possible to find a God-given confidence in the ways we are fearfully and wonderfully made Psalm 139 style? Join us for this workshop as we dive into throwing the lies of the enemy back in the mirror and find inner and outer beauty in our worth in Christ. (PS: no bathing suit wearing required.) This session will be offered during Pre-Conference Session 2 and 3.
