Something exciting for you, ladies! UNLEASHED Womens’ Conference
November 9, 2018
Don’t know what to ask for as a Christmas gift, ladies? How about of a weekend of refreshment, renewal, encouragement, and laughter? My dear friend, Dede Lomenick, speaker and comedian, has organized this very exciting weekend! This is how she describes the process of putting the UNLEASHED Womens’ Conference together:
Here is the initial story of Unleashed:
About three years ago I was talking to someone about how women seem to feel stuck and often don’t walk in the freedom or pursue their wildest dreams and one word came to mind:
Me: “Huh, interesting word Jesus. What am I supposed to do with it?
Jesus: “Nothing – just pray about that word and don’t forget it!”
One year later:
Jesus: “Dede, remember that word I gave you?”
Me: “You mean unleashed, YES! I’ve been reading and praying and finding all the ways that Christ sets us free! Am I supposed to do something with this?”
Jesus: “Nope. Just keep praying. I’m assembling your team.”
Me: “Team for what? Hello? Jesus? YOOOHOOOOOOOO”
Another year later:
Me: “So it’s been two years Jesus”
Jesus: “Yes I know. I created time.”
Me: “I’m ready to do whatever it is that you want me to do.”
Jesus: “No you’re not.”
Jesus: “Yea verily, thou shalt put together a two-day women’s event called UNLEASHED! Thou shalt assemble thy team!”
So with that in mind, I assembled an incredible group of speakers and set the date January 25 and 26, 2018.
There are more of video clips of Dede’s comedy on that link. My favorite is “Welcome to the Nursery” in her Axl Rose voice. But more importantly, I am looking forward to hearing about embracing freedom instead of fear. It is something I have battled with most of my adult life. The theme is freedom from shame and regret, and embracing who you were created to be. The line-up of speakers includes some names I know, respect, and love including girls’ ministry director Drew Brown and psychologist and counselor Dr. Heather Clark.
Tickets are available here. I would love to get a group together to get discounted tickets. Let me know by email or in the comments if you would like to be a part of our group! Admission includes Friday evening and Saturday events, breakfast and lunch on Saturday, snacks, and beverages (yeah, I am always worried about food, so I mentioned it first). There are five speakers, worship, and break out sessions. It will be held at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
