Breakout Session 1 – 10:30-11:30 am


  1. Rhonda Carlsen – Fix Your Focus! (this session will start at 10 a.m.)
    • An interactive workshop to help you create a visual representation of your goals, aspirations, and what God is calling you to. We will use magazines, images, clip art, to create a vision board or journal to keep you clearly focused on where God is leading you.
  2. Alesha Brown – Your Greatest Pain is the Life Raft to Someone Else’s Hopeless Situation.
    • This talk helps attendees shift their thoughts from being burdened by challenges and obstacles to pursuing a purpose-filled mission drive life. More than just learning how to pay it forward, attendees will hear biblical and natural examples where pain, challenges, and obstacles were used to transform the lives of others. They will also analyze what ways God can use their life challenges and obstacles for radical change and the type of transformation that the world needs.
  3. Angela Ianni – The Four Lies of Happiness
    • Discover the four lies of happiness, what believing in these lies has cost you, and how to rewrite them for yourself so you never have to be affected by them again!

Breakout Session 2 – 1:00-2:00 pm


  1. Alicia Eichmann – Living a Spiritually Aligned Life: How to Follow Your Dreams
    • Do you ever feel stuck, but afraid to admit it to yourself or anyone else? Do you have a sense of potential, of unrealized dreams, that you’re not sure what to do with? Are you living in a box of your own making, with a deep inner dissatisfaction that you can’t shake, but you don’t know how to begin to change your life in a way that aligns with your values? I know exactly how you feel, I was in that place and I changed my life completely, the first transformation was all internal, and then all of the sudden everything external changed too as I worked with God to redesign my life. In this breakout session I’ll share some of my stories, and practical tips for finding inner peace and pursuing a spiritually aligned life that honors God and your own inner design. My goal is for you to leave inspired, hopeful and with a fresh sense of clarity around the actions, you can take to move forward toward the life you want in a way that truly and deeply resonates with your spirit.
  2. Stacha Ashburn and Lisa Dolinger –  The Interchangeable Sister – Flowing between Naomi and Ruth for Kingdom Impact!
    • We are unpacking sisterhood with a fresh twist! Whether you view walking in a Christ-centered, sisterly relationship as discipleship, mentoring, friendship or so much more, please know it flows both ways! God calls us to be women of humility and women that sustain a teachable posture. There may be times in your walk where you need to be Ruth and your sister circle takes on the role of Naomi. Then again, there will be other times that you become Naomi and they take on the role of Ruth. That’s the beauty of an interchangeable sisterhood! Join Lisa and I as we dissect this dialogue and help you apply it to your own life!
  3. Katy Calabrese – #SeasonofYou: How a Year of Soul-Searching and Grace Under Fire Taught Me to Love God’s Best Version of Me…Just ME!
    • Journey back to the beginning with God, when you were blissfully confident and wholly at peace simply being, {YOUR NAME HERE}, child of God. Sifting through failure, lamenting great loss, acknowledging the hot mess and the less-than-fit-for-the-human-race days…it’s work. Hard, painful, necessary, beautiful, restorative work. Reintroduce yourself to who God meant for you to be, minus the labels and the accolades, before the world told you who you were supposed to be, how you were supposed to feel and where you were supposed to show up, and get back to #Seasonof{YourNameHere}, beloved, perfectly imperfect, child of God.

Breakout Session 3 – 2:30-3:30 pm


  1. Cynthia Gossman – Rising Above the Storm: 7 Steps to Reclaiming Happiness and Restoring Joy
    • Our brains are hardwired to be negative. We are creatures of habit. When stress rises the human brain switches to autopilot. Learn critical life skills to reduce stress and rewire your brain for positivity, happiness, and joy.
  2. Letitia Bates – Trauma to Triumph: How To A.C.T In Response To Trauma
    • What if you knew how to resolve the pain of your past? What if you knew how to respond to the obstacles you’re facing now? What if you could start the process in 3 simple steps? You may be dealing with past or present trauma from grief, abuse, or relationships. Join Letitia Bates as she shares how to go from Trauma to Triumph!
  3. Dee Dee Parker – The Process is REAL and NECESSARY – Choose JOY in the Journey
    • Have you ever felt the Lord compelling you to take action for Him, but you were convinced that you heard Him incorrectly? Have you ever decided against moving forward with a project because you were not sure how to proceed and/or didn’t feel adequate to take on the task? Do you have a God-given dream you are not sure how to fulfill? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, this breakout session is for you. Your God-given dream could be building a business or simply being a loving, nurturing wife and mother. Although the process of discovering success is sometimes hard, there can be joy in the journey. Each step of the way teaches us valuable lessons. Most importantly, down the road, we can look back and see the turning points that helped us reach our goal. Friend, if God has laid something on your heart to accomplish, it is important to take the leap of faith and move forward. Let me share my faith journey with you!
