“Don’t think for a moment that because you’re in the palace you will escape when all other Jews are killed. If you keep quiet at a time like this, deliverance and relief for the Jews will arise from some other place, but you and your relatives will die. Who knows if perhaps you were made queen for just such a time as this?” (Esther 4:13-14 NLT)

Where does the Bible say that older women should teach younger girls?

(Titus 2:4-8 NLT) These older women must train the younger women to love their husbands and their children, to live wisely and be pure, and to do good.

 

WOMEN HAVE BEEN COMMISSIONED TO BE COURAGEOUS & FEARLESS

Connection with Moms and Daughters to Strengthen Their Testimonies

Beauty Instead of Ashes

The Resilient Brave Hearts Conference is the weekend before school begins and a great time for moms and daughters to connect with each other, their peers, and older women and find happiness and beauty instead of ashes through the chaos in life and come away feeling closer than before. Having the conference before school will jump-start them for a fabulous new semester in school. How can we expect girls to love others if they don’t know how to love themselves? How can they love themselves if they don’t love God? This conference will help to inspire girls and women with courage and confidence to reach their potential in Christ and find lasting happiness. The speakers will address topics that are vital to good relationships and drawing close to God.

– A groundbreaking conference that helps mothers, daughters, peers, and friends connect in a new way

– Come feel seen and heard by your mom, peers, and other women

About the Event

OVERVIEW
About the Conference
Who This is for
The Benefits
What does it mean to be prepared “For Such a Time as This”?

Just like Queen Esther, women have been given opportunities to influence our time – be it a job, position, resources, or education.  You were put where you are right now for a reason – and we need the courage and wisdom to see that reason and to walk in it.

“For Such a Time as This” involves so much more than one pivotal moment – every valley, trial, and triumph has been preparing you to have the courage and wisdom you need for these days.

Learn from extraordinary women as they share how they recognized and said “yes” to their calling – and are now living their personal Esther stories as they fight on the frontlines of the battlefield.

You will leave activated, loved on, supported, and given tools to step out and BE the Esther you were created to be.

Experience worship, and powerful inspired teaching.
Enjoy a time to reflect on who you were created to be.
Gain practical and in-depth insight from many experts from around the country.

Conference at the Branson Event Center at The Shoppes at Branson Meadows 4230 Gretna Road, Branson, MO 65616.

You have been prepared for this time and want to connect with others stepping out.

You are ready to find the resources, connections, and friends you need.

 

This can be rough territory – to be a woman, to be a Mentor, a Teacher, and to want to bring Hope. Health. Healing. to the culture. Come together and realize you are “Wanted” by a King who wants you to Arise and able to be courageous and fearless Resilient Brave Hearted “Queen Esthers”!
Find out who you were made to be and what is in store for you.
Hear speakers share their personal journey that brought them here for such a time as this – who have walked the journey and can be your guide.
