2017 WLI National Conference Topics:
Bible Journeys: Teaching Scripture Like a Tour Guide
7 Things I Wish I Had Known When I Started Speaking
Soul Spa: Is your spirit weary? Your heart worn? Come to the Soul Spa! In this presentation, you will explore Spiritual disciplines that help you connect with the Savior—the One who promises to restore our souls (Psalm 23:3). It’s all wrapped in a fun spa theme that will leave you refreshed!
What Not to Wear: Based on God’s “What Not to Wear” instructions in Colossians 3:9-10, this talk will help you weed out unattractive attitudes like the Worry Handbag, the Field Marshal Uniform of Control, and the Prom Dress of Pride. You will discover how God’s Word can help you become a spiritual fashionista!
Make Over Your Mouth: Want luscious lips? The answer is not found in a $50 lipstick, but in a total mouth makeover. The world may value what we put on our lips, but God values what comes out of them. Learn how to become a positive influence through the words you speak.
Joyfully Ever After: “Joyfully Ever After” retells the much-loved story of Cinderella as a picture of our relationship with the true Prince—King Jesus—and weaves in a similar story from the Song of Solomon. As these stories intertwine, you will rediscover God’s unfailing love and how you can live “joyfully ever after.”
Christ-Connected Women—Elizabeth and Mary: The lives of Elizabeth and Mary the mother of Jesus illustrate how we can be connected to God and to His people. This presentation explores how each of these courageous and godly women grew closer to God and how God put them together to strengthen each other.
