I probably should have written about the I Am Woman Dream conference by now, but I wasn’t ready to yet.
I am still overwhelmed. It has taken me days to process. And every report and testimony that rolls in through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, text, email, phone call, letter…it makes me reel back more.
I knew God wanted to do something through our team at this event. I just had NO IDEA how much.
The stories of people who had given up. Those who had just….quit. (settled I guess is the word we used). And then the life that is springing forth as they start dreaming again and ALREADY watching dreams turn into realities.
Some Of My Favorite Stories Rolling In…
-A sixteen-year-old girl who found her life’s path.
-A guy that was serving at the conference that was so moved he brought two female family members to the rest.
-A woman that lost her dream ribbon from her wrist, was determined and found it and put it back on and declared, “I will NOT lose my dream again!’
-The fact that one lady is counting down the days until the HAPPY conference next year.
-A message from one woman that said she didn’t have any hope left before the conference and she is now filled with hope and courage!
-Another sweet message about how this brought a mom and her daughter so much closer together and even the daughter’s best friend experienced a life change!
-How on gentlemen that served is already requesting vacation time for next year to make sure that he can be there again. He told me with teary eyes.
-One business owner had more ‘junk’ thrown at her this week trying to keep her from coming and she left hugging me and smiling from ear to ear saying – this is exactly what I needed to breathe and dream again! I KNOW God is going to do so much with us! (and they have already been BLOWING UP their industry).
As I have vacillated between tears of joy and laughter with person after person in hearing their stories of what God is doing, I want to say THANK YOU.
Thank you to all the ladies that carved out the time to dream again last weekend with us. We dreamed of this time for you for over a year and watching you enjoy it was a dream come true for us.
Thank you to the BIZARRELY hard-working staff that have ALREADY started on next year’s conference. Y’all don’t stop and God sees that.
Thank you to the volunteers to toiled day and night transforming a church campus in a space where dreams could be born and resurrected. What you have sown into others, I pray you receive in abundance.
Thank you to the men that served the entire conference while the ladies where infused with hope and strength. May the serving you have done for others be something that is returned to you for a lifetime.
My heart is full and I just HAD to share some stories!!! I am praying that people will read this and share it with others to read so that YOU will share YOUR dream story from last weekend HERE in a comment. So that we can all dream together with you!!!
