Join us for our fourth annual Claim It Women’s Conference.
Often women feel as though we serve as cruise ship directors. We facilitate fun and enjoyment for all those around us, yet we forget to take time for our joy. Spend a day away from responsibilities (with childcare!) as we dig deeper into this concept of joy.
- talk about how to find joy
- discuss why joy is sometimes hard to access
- have some fun alongside other women in the community
Attendees will walk away rejuvenated and equipped to rid themselves of the guilt and martyrdom that holds them back from claiming a life of joy.
28 Ways To Claim Your Joy!
Show yourself some love this February and bring more joy into your life. Receive encouragement via daily text to resist what’s stealing your joy and embrace this gift God intends for you. This text series runs from February 1-28. Text claimyourjoy to 29456.
This woman-focused event intends to be inclusive of all women. We are welcoming and respectful of everyone, including trans women and those who are nonbinary, gender non-conforming and anyone who identifies as a woman in a way that is significant to them.
