Main Sessions

Every year, we hear from so many women how the praise and worship times are one of their favorite parts of the conference. Our opening and closing sessions will include powerful times of praise and worship led by the Heart 2 Heart Worship Team, followed by a message that will challenge and encourage you.


These messages often take on different formats and include various speakers. This year, our messages will be delivered by Shannon Roberts, Heart 2 Heart Women's Conference Leader.


But honestly, the Holy Spirit is in control of our services. Where ever He leads us, we will follow Him.

breakout sessions

Breakout sessions provide you the opportunity to choose the topics that interest you the most. In these sessions you will dig into scripture and obtain a deeper understanding of relevant issues facing us today. Who knows, you might even make a new friend!


We gather women from our church body to lead these 40-minute sessions. There will be multiple rounds of breakout sessions on Saturday, each with different topics to choose from.


There is no special sign-up for these sessions, they are offered on a first come, first served basis. Seating will be limited in many sessions. Always have a back-up session planned in case your first choice is full when you get to the room. If there are no available seats in a session, please go to a different session.


Below are the breakout sessions being offered this year:

  • pouring from an empty cup

    Session Leaders: Linda Weaver & Tami Croy

    Exodus 14:14 tells us, "The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still." Women, we are the doers, fixers, peacemakers - for the most part, in charge of all things chaotic! In the mix of our exhausting world, we tend to be consumed by things that overwhelm us. No wonder we pour from an empty cup. The Lord said, "be still". How can we be still with so much flowing through our lives? Come join us as we explore this empty cup, as we learn how to be still and know God, and share with the world this cup that can overflow with blessings that are refreshing, revitalizing and reconnecting.

  • renewing Our minds: how we think shapes how we live

    Session Leader: Shannon Stowell

    In this session we will explore where our current mindsets and thought lives came from, where they are taking us, and the life-changing difference between a mind set on the flesh and a mind set on the Spirit. Romans 8:6 tells us, "To set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace." Together, we will learn the importance of "thinking about what we're thinking about" and the simple steps we can take to start turning around the stinking thinking that has kept us bound up and help captive in our very own  minds - for far too long!

  • Reconnecting with Resilience

    Session Leaders: Ariel Brown, MAMFC, LPC, EMDRIA Approved Consultant, Clinical Supervisor and Deanna Smith, MS, LAC at Living Well Counseling

    Do you ever feel so stressed that you think you might explode? Or do you feel so overwhelmed you just shut down for a while? Or maybe you feel like you bounce back and forth between the two? If so, you are human! Paul said, "I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong" (Ephesians 3:16-17). During this session, we will explore how embracing God’s elegant design of our nervous systems can help us recognize that inner strength Paul talked about and develop a deeper understanding of grace. We will also learn practical skills that can help you navigate the ups and downs of life and reconnect with yourself, those you love, and the Lord in meaningful ways.

  • RETURNING TO THE SECRET PLACE

    Session Leader: Trish Ferrell

    Psalm 91:1 promises us that, “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” I will say to the Lord,” My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust!” Do you feel a  burning desire to know God more? Maybe you‘ve been going through the motions of Christianity and you’re thinking there has got to be more! Or you have already been spending time there with God, but nothing is happening. If prayer is so wonderful why do we struggle with it so much? In this session, you'll learn how to seek God with your whole heart; how to stop the things that are hindering your time with Him; as well as practical tips for setting up your "secret place".

  • BEING A WOMAN WHO STRENGTHENS OTHER WOMEN

    Session Leader: Lori McDonald

    These days, more than ever, we are tested, dog-tired, drained, and overwhelmed by many difficulties, as well as the busy routines that we create for ourselves. We not only need to be encouraged, but the Bible says we must also be encouragers! One of the most powerful things we can do for a child, friend, coworker, parent or spouse is to be an encourager. How do we do this? Isaiah 50:4 tells us the Lord has given us a well-instructed tongue to know the word that sustains the weary. In a society where people are quick to condemn and criticize, let’s use our mouths to speak differently! Join me as we dive into practical ways to use our words and actions to sustain the weary and sustain each other as Sisters in Christ.

  • OVERCOMING INSECURITY

    Session Leader: La Shundra Raynor

    I should be making more money! Why do I look like this? I'm not a good mother. I will never be blessed with a husband. I should be (insert description) at this point in my life. I missed my calling. Am I even a good person? I'll never be good enough. We all have insecurities that we need to release to the Lord. In this breakout session, we will gain the tools to refresh our relationship with God; revitalize our perception of ourselves; and reconnect our broken ways of thinking.
