godly lament and healing

wisdom in seasons of sorrow

June 8, 2024 | Kearney, Nebraska

The 2024 Women’s Conference is a one-day event in Kearney, Nebraska, offering a space for reflection, healing, and connection with women of faith from all walks of life.

Through Biblical messages, music, and shared experiences, we’ll explore themes of godly lament, acknowledging and processing sorrows, and pursuing forgiveness, redemption, and healing.

This gathering is for any woman who:

  • Carries the weight of unaddressed sorrows;
  • Yearns for a deeper connection with God;
  • Has experienced loss or betrayal; or
  • Struggles to find joy in the everyday challenges of life.
