A conference centered around real women, real stories, and a real Jesus.

Life is full of challenges. People hurt people; we hurt people; tragedies & loss occur. It’s difficult to talk about the things we have buried deep in our hearts, but there is a Jesus who wants to go DEEP into YOUR heart. 

Jesus wants to meet you at your deepest point of pain and despair. Quit trying to carry and bury your pain. He is the only one that can bring purpose from your pain, beauty from your brokenness, and freedom from your failures. This conference showcases the “HEART” (His Truth Endures, Adores, & Restores) of our Father through raw & real stories by real women who have encountered a real Jesus.

Joy and sorrow can coexist. God taught Michelle Ruddell this difficult lesson when just five months after her 5-year-old son was killed in a car accident, her beautiful daughter was born. Still wracked with grief, this precious baby was a joy-filled light in the midst of darkness.
