Wow this life is crazy with its many ups and downs, twists and turns...One of those amazing twists and turns will be happening June 3-5, 2010 in Miami, Florida where I will be speaking at a women's conference put on by Urban Youth Workers Institute. The women's conference is specifically called: "The re: re:fresh, re:lax, re:sort - Whats your re?" I would like to encourage all of the female readers of this blog to check it out at http://www.thereconference.com/
I clicked on the About re page and this is what it says:
Relate: Women connecting with other women walking out life in service to the city
Release: Women joining together to lay aside what they do and be reminded of why they are
Relax: Women soaking in the tanquil setting of lush palm trees beside cool waters
Redefine: Women seeing that the word "conference" has an entirely new meaning
Rejuvenate: Women uniting with other women to witness a renewal of the soul
Refresh: Women connecting with other women to replenish themselves mind, body, and spirit
GIVEWAYS: Including Spa Packages, Massages, Pedicures and Manicures
"The re" conference
In its inaugural year, this unique conference defines itself as the "unconference." The idea behind "The re" is that it be a weekend of connection and growth for women serving in the urban context. The luxurious atmosphere of the Doral Spa and Resort in Miami, FL invites all the participants to be pampered in mind, body, and spirit. From the moment women arrive they will find their "connecting point," groups of women where they fit. Women are free to find as many connecting points as they desire throughout the weekend, and there will be plenty of opportunities to mingle and go deep.
Through the "WORTH" shops women will be given the opportunity to learn and grow in topics specifically addressing the needs of women who serve in the city. These two hour sessions will intentionally engage the participant in interactive discussion with plenty of space to apply all they learn.
The weekend is overflowing with opportunities for you to find your "re." We will be sitting, standing, resting, teaching, recharging, learning, pampering, connecting with our Lord and Savior and so much more. Come and create your own experience.
There is still room for women to sign up to attend. I would love to see familar faces and meet lots of new ones that really only know me either through this blog or through Andrew my husband...Plus I must admit I could use all the encouragement as I am already a bit nervous.
Additionally, as one who has steared clear of conferences especially women's conference I feel it is important to share with each of you how different and special I believe this conference will be (oh and not just because I am going to be there) Truly I think this will be a different type of conference that allows time for questions, discussions, and encouragement. Also I believe it will be a conference that not only will give real world experiences but also time to dive much deeper into how one can apply the topics that are being discussed...
Okay ladies plus the best part is its at a Spa in Miami how much better can that be!!!
I really hope you take the time to check out the website and I really hope you can try to attend...Let me know if you are by commenting on this blog...
I can't wait to see you in Miami!
