Being a wife, mother, business owner, and just simply being a woman in today’s society is no easy task. The pressures, struggles, and constant on-the-go lifestyle can be exhausting. As wives and mothers, we rarely take time out for ourselves to replenish our bodies and souls because we are too busy taking care of everyone else. I have had the joy of attending Women of Faith in 2010, 2011, and now 2012 in various capacities – church group leadership team member, volunteer, and this year as media.
Its an amazing feeling to look around around a sold-out crowd in a stadium or arena and see the faces of thousands of women, from all walks of life and backgrounds, who have chosen to come together to learn, laugh, cry, connect, and grow in their faith and spiritual walk. Its a time designated for fun, learning, friendship (girl’s night out), and more importantly, its an investment in one’s self to be the woman you want to achieve to become for yourself, family, and those around you.
Women of Faith, the nation’s largest live event for women, will unveil its most transformational tour yet: “Celebrate What Matters.” The cross-country tour will highlight some never-before-seen elements including a live worship band, a new state-of-the art stage and live ballet, among others. This revitalized experience features a 4-month, 23-city North American tour with a diverse line up of 27 well-known speakers, authors, musicians and performers spread throughout.
“I’m honored to return to Women of Faith and the ‘Celebrate What Matters’ tour,” said Max Lucado, pastor and international best-selling author. “This tour endeavors to remind women of their value to their Father God. I can’t think of a worthier goal. That’s something to celebrate!”
“It doesn’t matter how old or young you are, your life is broadened or diminished by the company you keep,” said Amy Grant, multi-award-winning Christian music pioneer.
“Being part of the Women of Faith community has given me new tools of laughter, hope, anticipation and courage for this chapter of life.”“We want (the women attending) to see the power of the living God, His awesomeness and His holiness,” said CeCe Winans, Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter and author. “Nothing is more powerful than when you are face to face with God.”
Women of Faith, reaching 4.6 million over the last 16 years, is reaching out to women across the nation to say: this is a never-been-done-before tour that you don’t want to miss. “Celebrate What Matters” will give attendees hope and reason to celebrate, knowing that God loves them. It will feature, new to Women of Faith, inspirational speakers including Ann Voskamp, Jennie Allen, Pat Smith and Liz Curtis Higgs. Multi-award winning CeCe Winans returns to Women of Faith along with Mandisa, Amy Grant and Selah. Women of Faith favorites such as Sheila Walsh, Patsy Clairmont, Sandi Patty, Brenda Warner, Marilyn Meberg, Andy Andrews, Ken Davis and Lisa Harper are back to deliver personal stories that share a fresh, deep and honest message of God’s love. Other well-known speakers will join to create a unique line-up for each city.
Enhancing this live experience is Ballet Magnificat!, the world’s premier, professional Christian ballet company. Ballet Magnificat! will bring Scripture and songs to life through visual and artistic witness. The new stage design will also allow the audience to engage on a more personal level, with speakers and performers positioned in the aisles and on satellite stages. This year Women of Faith will be coming to Orlando Friady, October 12 and Saturday. October 13 at The Amway Center.
