Earlier this month I had the privilege of attending my first Fresh Grounded Faith conference. As an added bonus it happened to take place in my hometown of Allen, Texas! From the speakers and worship to the meet and greet, going to Fresh Grounded Faith was an empowering experience.
Speaker and author Jennifer Rothschild is the creator and host of the two-day event. She holds about ten weekend conferences across the country for women of all ages to attend. While each one is compiled of different speakers, I had the chance to hear from actress Karen Abercrombie and author Lysa TerKeurst. While Dove Award winner and Grammy Nominated Michael O’Brien led worship and shared his testimony.
This two-day experience fills it’s attendees both spiritually and emotionally while compelling them to dive deeper into the word. One of the best parts for me was that I was able to share this event with my mom and my friend. Being able to be in the presence of God with women of faith and those you love is so powerful
What You Can Expect
Even though this conference is only two-day its packed with powerful worship and spiritual teaching. This year’s theme for the Fresh Grounded Faith conference is Unshakeable based on Psalm 62:6. In the New International Version it reads, Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
Rothschild taught on Friday night about how to practice being an unshakeable woman. Her message emphasized how important it is for women to glorify God, engage your mind, and take care of their soul. By taking time to discover who we are in Christ and taking care of ourselves we become unshakeable.
Then on Saturday we heard from Karen Abercrombie who brought the story of Rahab to life. Through her story telling message she taught us that God can use us, despite our past, for his kingdom. Next, Lysa TerKerkeurst shared an inspiring and hilarious story that you can catch on Periscope. The weekend ended with a roundtable Q&A and meet and greet.
Fresh Grounded Faith Achieved
The speakers not only motivate you, but also by being surrounded by other believers. I met some of the nicest women attending this conference. I left feeling as though my spiritual cup was full and prepared to take hold of the promise God has for me.
Looking over the notes and videos of this conference has reminded me how important it is to depend on God. In times of trouble, doubt, or fear God isn’t shaken, and we shouldn’t be either. As long as we keep our eyes on him and walk according to his word we can be unshakeable.
There are some conferences that you just have to experience at least once, and Fresh Grounded Faith is that event. If you want to find out more about the Fresh Grounded Faith Conference and visit their site: http://www.freshgroundedfaith.com/
