Join us in beautiful Ruidoso, New Mexico on October 12-14 for Awaken 2017. Our theme for this year is
“But the time is coming–it has, in fact, come–when what you’re called will not matter and where you go to worship will not matter. ‘It’s who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth. That’s the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship…'”

I Have No Idea What I’m Doing!
Don’t get caught up in the craziness around you, and lose sight of who you are and where you’re going. Let me show you how to tune out the world’s voices and focus on your unique, God-designed calling and purpose.
Happily Ever After
As single women, we imagined the perfect man and the fairytale marriage. As married women, we’re wondering what happened to our happily ever after. Come and learn how to blend the dreams of our hearts with the realities of marriage, to recapture the magic.
Raising Up Leaders
The Lord puts women in leadership positions in their careers, families and communities. We must equip ourselves and understand Godly leadership principles to enlarge our spheres of influence. Let’s learn how to lead and empower others here and now.
The Parent(hood) Trap
Parenthood can be the most rewarding and the most frustrating thing we do in our lives. We will learn the different ways to parent our children in every season of their lives, while relying on God’s grace to do it successfully.
Freedom in Healing
Hurt can come in many forms, such as grief/loss, divorce, abuse and abandonment. But God’s love can restore us when we let go of these hurts. Join me as we take the necessary steps to find redemption, healing and freedom from our painful past.
Experiencing the Holy Spirit
From our greatest battles to our daily struggles the Holy Spirit is our compassionate and mighty Counselor. He leads and enables us to walk in His Truth. Join me as we look into the empowering work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
