On behalf of and together with the Essential Lead Team, I wish to celebrate your choice to participate in Essential Conference 2016. I am confident the few days we have together will be filled with  life-giving insights from the Lord. These insights may come from a speaker, during worship, or in a breakout session. But, did you know that God also uses the moments in your hotel room with a few ladies sharing life together? Did you know that God might speak to you around a table with a few women sharing a meal or a cup of coffee? 

And, did you know God speaks to you when you respond?  We often miss the moment because we wonder if we should or should not respond. My motto is "walk don't run to the altar of the Lord." I encourage you to posture yourself in these days to respond to the nudge of the Holy Spirit. 

The ministry flow of our days together is truly designed by the Lord. The Lord gave us our focus, "Igniting the fire and power of your feminine soul." After confirming this was the direction of the Lord, a series of unexpected events occurred to confirm this direction. While these confirmations were helpful we also began to hear the Lord say that to ignite the feminine soul we must first heal her soul. As such, we have woven into the conference a healing thread. It is like a gold thread running through a beautiful piece of fabric. The healing of our souls will stand out and cause us to walk in the fire and power promised us as daughters of the King!

I speak life and grace and the goodness of God over your heart as you enter the days of Essential 2016!
