Breakout Sessions & Speakers
Session 1
Sydney Bacon
Let the Journey Begin!
Don’t wait until you’re older to start living your best life, or walking in the Lord’s calling. Even in this season of being young and free, we have an opportunity to impact the world for His Kingdom. Join me as I share how to uncover your unique calling and fully chase after it! 
**This class is for young adults and high school girls.
Marilyn Garrett
Purpose in the Journey
A purpose-filled life is one of joy and fulfillment, but this focus often changes by season. Discover how to find purpose at every stage of the journey of life; learn how to thrive, not just to survive.
Stacy Havens
Experiencing the Holy Spirit
From our greatest battles to our daily struggles the Holy Spirit is our compassionate and mighty Counselor. He leads and enables us to walk in His Truth.  Join me as we look into the empowering work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
Kara Hyden
Developing the Leader Within
We all have leadership potential within us, but unless we develop that God-given potential, we may never feel complete.  The first step is to do something – but how? Where do we start? Join me as we discuss how to develop the leader within each one of us.
Session 2
Becky Bacon
Freedom in Healing
Hurt can come in many forms, such as grief/loss, divorce, abuse and abandonment.  But God’s love can restore us when we let go of these hurts. Join me as we take the necessary steps to find redemption, healing and freedom from our painful past.
Sherryle Cantu
Just Keep Walking
Scripture tells us that we will have difficulties and there will be dark valleys to travel. But, we are called to walk through these tough times, not allow them to be our destination.  Join me as I share how single or divorced women and moms can learn to lean on God and just keep walking.
Josie Carignan
Walking in Your Calling
God placed a calling on each of our lives, but sometimes it can be hard to know where to start and what to do. Join me as I share with you my journey of growing Rescue Her from a small, one-person dream to the national organization it is today.
Olowa Johnson
Finding Joy in the Journey
Tired? Weary? Worn? Does being a mom or wife feel like a chore? Come and learn God’s design for everlasting enjoyment in marriage, parenting, and other important relationships. This is the time to renew your joy – because it holds your strength to manage the demands of life.
