Julie Clinton, host and president of Extraordinary Women.
Ladies, you are extraordinary women of God and you deserve a weekend to celebrate this fact! Mark your calendars now for the Extraordinary Women Conference, a weekend designed to help you draw closer to the heart of God and His amazing plan for your daily life. EWomen is not just a Christian women’s event – it’s a lifestyle. The conference will be held at the Mabee Center, February 28 through March 1, 2014.
Julie Clinton, president of Extraordinary Women, has spoken to hundreds of thousands of women as host of EWomen conferences all across America. A person of deep faith, she cares passionately about seeing women live out their dreams by finding their freedom in Christ. “We as women give of ourselves all day, every day – to our husbands, children, careers and households – but we rarely give back to ourselves. This conference is our way of giving back to women, offering them a weekend away to experience hope and healing through Jesus Christ,” says Julie. “Extraordinary Women shares with all women, regardless of their religious affiliation, the love, acceptance and completeness God has for us.”
The conference will include music, praise and worship, entertainment and special guest speakers. “Our speakers will discuss issues related to women, many that aren’t necessarily talked about at church on Sunday morning, such as divorce, illness and disappointment,” says Julie.
The theme of this year’s conference, “The Joyful Journey,” comes from Romans 15:13 – “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
“Life is not always joyful,” says Julie, “but we must remember that the only true everlasting joy can be found through the Lord.”
In addition to Julie, several other women will offer insightful and inspirational presentations at the conference. Karen Kingsbury is a USA and New York Times best-selling author and America’s top inspirational novelist, with 10 of her more than 50 novels landing at number one on national book lists.
Chonda Pierce is one of the biggest selling comedians in the world today, consistently a top-selling ticketed artist of any genre. She is one of the country’s most honest artists, allowing her personal struggles to be the substance behind the laugh.
Carol Kent is a popular public speaker known around the world for her compelling, humorous, and spiritually uplifting messages. Carol has been a keynote speaker for various women’s conferences and events, and she regularly appears on a variety of nationally syndicated television and radio broadcasts.
Margaret Feinberg was recently named one of the “30 Emerging Voices” who will help lead the church in the next decade by “Charisma” magazine. Margaret has written more than two dozen books and Bible studies.
Lisa Whelchel is an actress, author, and inspirational speaker. She is best known for her role as Blair Warner on the sitcom “The Facts of Life.” Lisa left acting to be a stay-at-home mom, and later wrote a series of books on motherhood. In 2012, Lisa returned to television to appear on the series “Survivor: Philippines.”
The event will also feature musical performances by Michael O’Brien and Lonestar.
The Extraordinary Women Conference is part of the American Association of Christian Counselors. Gather your friends, daughters, mothers, sisters and aunts for a wonderful weekend of healing, hope, laughter and joy. Purchase your tickets online today at www.ewomen.net.
