The Women Of Faith Conferences Changed My Life
In September 1996, a few years after I dedicated my life to God, I heard that a special women’s conference was coming to town.
Something about the title – The Joyful Journey – spoke to my heart.
I decided to attend.
After all, who couldn’t use a little more joy in their lives?
The conference was held in a large church on the East Coast. It was 1 of 10 Women Of Faith conferences launched across the United States that year.
Little did I – or anyone else at that time – know that this conference would mark the beginning of The Women Of Faith phenomenon – a series of events that would transform the lives of more than 5 million women over the next 20 years!
I just knew that God was at work and I wanted to be where He was.
To this day, I remember everyone’s collective excitement as the conference began and we began to sing and praise God.
I remember the audience’s anticipation as each new speaker walked across the stage.
I remember sitting in that church audience, transfixed by speaker after amazing speaker, feeling like each woman on the stage was speaking directly to me.
Lucy Swindoll made me laugh as she spoke about the perils and promises of the single life. Marilyn Meeberg encouraged me as she spoke about various life issues we women face and how God sustains us through them all.
Thelma Wells moved me to tears as she shared the difficult childhood she rose above, and with courage and graciousness, inspired me to “bee all that I could be!” To this day, she remains one of the most inspirational women I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting!
During breaks, we had the opportunity to meet the speakers personally. Because I am a bibliophile – and because each of the speakers impacted me so deeply – I naturally bought as many books as I could! Each of the speakers graciously autographed each book with messages of encouragement and love. Their words continue to inspire me to this day!
Word quickly spread about these amazing speakers and how attending a Women of Faith Conference could change your life. By year two, so many women hungered to hear the Women Of Faith speak, logistics necessitated a move from large churches to large arenas to accommodate the growing demand!
I also had the privilege of attending one of the larger conferences. It was a blessing to be part of a stadium filled with women thirsting to hear God speak through other women. I was thrilled to see my favorite speakers return as well as hear God speak through new women like Sheila Walsh on the tour!
However, I’ll never forget the intimacy of the first event – the opportunity to meet with each of the speakers personally – and how special and loved each and every speaker made me feel.
Now, I’m excited to share that on February 18th and 20th and on March 3rd and 5th, you can experience the excitement of this phenomenon as the Women Of Faith – An Amazing Joyful Journey movie plays for a limited engagement in select cinemas across the country!
If you have never had the opportunity to attend a Women Of Faith Conference, be sure to mark your calendar as this is your last opportunity to experience the magic!
If you have had the opportunity to attend a Women Of Faith Conference, you won’t want to miss the chance to relive your favorite moments – and make new memories!
What Can You Expect From The Women Of Faith – An Amazing Joyful Journey Movie?
For the last 20 years, as Women of Faith grew to become the largest non-denominational Christian women’s conference in the world, some of the most influential women in the Christian world have made it their mission to spread God’s love by sharing personal stories filled with laughter and tears to over 5 million women across the nation.
Now, the cinema event relives the magic by taking viewers on a journey of Women of Faith throughout the years.
You’ll have the chance to share the experiences of the speakers on stage and off, on their travels with World Vision, their impact on audiences – in short, you’ll see firsthand how they’ve changed the world.
Partly historical, and frequently hysterical, this unique cinematic experience will be packed with some of the most popular pieces from the beloved speaking team, which includes:
- Anna Trent
- Thelma Wells
- Mary Graham
- Luci Swindoll
- Sheila Walsh
- Jen Hatmaker
- Sandi Patty
- Patsy Clairmont

You’ll also enjoy music and performances from the Christian contemporary artists who appeared on the tour, as well as never-before-seen interviews, outtakes, and behind the scenes footage.
This event presentation will bring back memories for all those who have attended a Women of Faith weekend as well as create new memories for those experiencing it for the first time.
I can’t wait to attend this movie – and I’d love to hear your thoughts as well!
