Encourage Online Women’s Conference

Encourage Online Women's Conference

The Connection in Waynesboro, PA is partnering with Girlfriends Talking Podcast to host their first online women’s conference on Saturday, February 5. The new conference is called Encourage. It is designed to be uplifting and informative. There will be three speakers from around the country.

Yvonne Marie, M.Ed. is a speaker, educator, and author of the book, “Kill the Busy Save the Bee: What It Really Means to Be Still and Know”. At the conference, she will encourage guests to experience the value of finding solitude, the importance of surrendering, and the significant transformation that can take place when an intentional effort is made to personally know Jesus.

Jodi Howe is a speaker, author and host of “The Air That I Breathe” podcast. She will offer hope from God’s word, practical tips that will reduce your anxiety so you can learn to live with peace and joy even when mental storms are everywhere and sometimes, unavoidable.

Doris Swift is an author, speaker, and host of the “Fierce Calling” podcast. She encourages women to walk deeper in God’s word, walk out of their doubt, shame, and fear, and walk boldly into their calling. In ministry for over 30 years, Doris loves helping women discover how God equips, empowers, and engages them to use their gifts for His glory.

Conference host, Ramona Torres, loves connecting women to lean on each other and share their God stories.

The Encourage Conference will be held on Saturday, February 5 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. Tickets are $25. More details and tickets available at: Paid guests will receive the exclusive link to join in. Guests will not appear on screen but they will have opportunity to ask questions of the speakers.
