By the way, for those of you who have been looking for it, The Gospel Coalition National Women’s Conference video and audio are now available.
In just over nine weeks, I’ll be attending my third True Woman Conference, and I am thrilled that about thirty ladies will be coming with me!
When we assembled our group, we created a private Facebook group to connect and get to know each other, as some of the ladies go to different area churches. We then decided to study True Woman 101: Divine Design together before the conference. As we’ve learned more about biblical womanhood, I’ve witnessed the hearts of these women being prepared for what is to come at True Woman '12.
Some of the women feel as if, for the first time, the veil is being lifted and they are seeing the pull of culture in a new way. One friend wrote:
“I can't get over how God is changing my heart. I see and hear things differently (and it feels like it happened overnight). I want to explain or share things with friends, but when the time comes I don’t have the words. Lots and lots of emotion, but no words.”
My heart has been so encouraged to watch these women praying for each other, preparing for the conference, and sharing what God is doing in their lives. We are having a True Woman Girls Night Out in August to deepen our bond (plus, it gives a chance for some of those who don’t yet know each other to meet).
How are you preparing to meet with God at True Woman '12? If you’re not already, may I encourage you to connect with other ladies who are going, too? I think that going through the True Woman Manifesto, True Woman 101, or Seeking Him could all be ways to soften your heart to what God wants to do in Indianapolis this September. Really, the options are endless. Be as creative as you like.
And Lord willing, I’ll see you there!
