Women Of Faith Conference Recap | STACIE RAYE

Women Of Faith Conference Recap

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of attending my very first Women of Faith conference courtesy of Booksneeze.  The whole conference was built around this one scripture.  Ephesians 3:20 God can do anything, you know- far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams.  I had really no idea what to expect but I knew it would be big.




Day 1

I arrived at the Xcel Center in St. Paul with a swarm of other women giddy about what the weekend would hold. 

The general session began Friday morning and I must say , the worship team was amazing!  Their voices were so beautiful and blended wonderfully.  So talented!

Sheila Walsh started us off with her witty style while reminding us that God's promises really are for us.

Then came Henry Cloud, who was the only male speaker.

Natalie Grant blessed the ladies that evening with a concert.  Unfortunately, I wasn't able to come back that evening, but I heard it was really good.

Day 2

Author Lisa Harper spoke first.  She was very funny and I enjoyed her tales of her Spanx being too tight! But seriously, she bared all concerning the relationship with her dad(s).

Nicole Johnson talked to us as if  we were in a coffee shop chatting over a hot cup of Java.  She also became naked and explained very deep parts of her past that left many in tears.

Next, Angie Smith shared candidly about the loss of her baby girl which was extremely touching.

By the time these ladies were done, everyone was crying and drying their eyes. Many moving testimonies came forth all weekend of how God brought each one of these powerful women out of  very dark places.

Then came my favorite part of all!  The Mary Mary concert!  And they brought it y'all!  I loved every minute of it.  They sang their classics like "Shackles" and "Get Up" along with new hits, "Something Big" and "Walking".  They also shared how God had blessed the two of them with their families and Christ-centered upbringing.

Lastly came Luci Swindoll and the crowd went crazy!  She's 79 and still going strong.  Plus, she has got quite the sense of humor too. 

Overall, I had a great time.  There were a few incidents where I felt a little awkward because of some of the conference attendees behaviors- like people in my seats and unfriendly ladies at lunch.  But for the most part, the gals were friendly and welcoming to me.  Some invited me to sit next to them instead which was a loving gesture.



The one thing that I took away from this conference was that everyone has issues - not just me!  Even the women that you look at and think, "Nothing can be wrong in their lives"!  How far from the truth.  God can use anyone!  Broken vessels especially!  That was the most encouraging point and it really blessed me.

Disclosure: Booksneeze sponsored my tickets in exchange for my honest review of the concert.
