WOW on Wednesday!

Empower yourself to learn some amazing ways to take care of yourself as a woman…..and it is free!!!

I don’t know if it is too late to register since it has already started but check try to check out anything you can about the FOR WOMEN ONLY CONFERENCE HERE!!!

I think St. Teresa had to know how important it was to take care of herself in order to do all she did for God.

I have found the better I take care of my physical body, the more I can do for God….and I like that!

So check it out….and also checkout
GIRLS GONE STRONG!  These ladies rock.

I know it’s short today…but I wanted to share some of the great stuff I have been checking out the last couple days and don’t want anyone to miss out on it!

And remember…

Women…you are wonderfully made….you ARE A WARRIOR!

Blessings and hugs!

September 13, 2014 Women’s Conference Sum Up!

I waited a bit longer than I had intended to share with everyone this amazing day of reflection, prayer, and personal growth that I experienced a month ago.  

(Read previous post here to learn about the lead up to this Women’s Conference I attended in September!)

My one huge thing for all women who didn’t get to go:  YOU MUST GO NEXT YEAR!

Now I am a huge Joyce Meyer fan.  I would love to go to one of her conferences one of these years….but let me tell you the speaker: ROSE SWEET, was top notch! Check out her website here! 

She provided a beautiful, hip, loving environment that blows all those old thoughts that a CATHOLIC conference is stuffy, too serious, or too outdated.  

I remember going to a learning session once years and years ago to learn some things about my faith.  The speaker was well intended, she had fantastic material and message to share but the stuff she used wasn’t catchy, wasn’t with the times, and she didn’t really engage her group.  Maybe I was naive, a newbie, and a little bit out of my league….but it just was dull for me.

BUT…this was nothing like that…..

This was empowering…

This was amazing….

THIS WAS RESTORATIVE!!!!

The first part of the day was learning about the 4 levels of happiness.  That basically we MUST strive to be in level four:  an amazing beautiful relationship with GOD!  

To understand just how much to TRULY LOVES US NO MATTER WHAT!!!  It is at this level that we will find true, full happiness.
Levels one, two, and three (things, self, others) are intended to point us to God, level 4!!!  Thus, we must reorder our lives and put GOD at the top of our pyramid, instead of any of the other levels.

How do we achieve this?

WE MUST FALL IN LOVE WITH GOD!

How?

Be quiet…listen to HIM!

Get away from everyone to BE with HIM.

Read HIS words….GROW in HIS word.



When you fall in love with God, you get to KNOW HIM on a level that is hard to explain and others may not understand.

 

Yet when you TRULY love HIM you are able to know HIM and SERVE HIM without feeling ME, ME, ME; without feeling like you must impress others, or worry about stuff, or all the other reasons that may hold you back from truly LOVING AND RECEIVING GOD AS YOUR FIRST MAN!!!!

The second half of the day was about the 7 stages of Romance.
Big take home: these stages lead us to THE TRUE ROMANCE WITH GOD.
Our goal is to know God so intimately that we become so full with HIM that we don’t desire other imitations.

Be willing to say to HIM: TAKE ME LORD!  
I AM HERE FOR YOU TO DO AS YOU WISH!!!

My summary doesn’t possibly give that day full justice….but I hope it gives many of you something to think about.  I pray you all mark your calendars for next fall to NOT miss this amazing conference.

St. Teresa challenged herself to continually learn, grow, and move in her faith….this is exactly what this conference with do for you!!!

Blessings and love always,

Wonderful Warrior Woman: Saint Teresa of Avila

Today is the Feast Day of St. Teresa of Avila (click on name). 

 I have always leaned more on 

Yet, the more I read about, Saint Teresa, I can see how we as women have much to learn from her.  She was an amazingly strong woman full of spunk, yet femininity.

What’s really cool is the Church will begin a year long celebration of her 500th birthday (click here), starting today!  Giving us as women an entire year to strengthen ourselves through a great woman of faith!
To start this adventure of learning even more about this saint, I am going to start a Novena to her….(Click Here).  During these 9 days I am going to post something prayerful for us to grow from and weaves my themes of each day. 
Hope you are able to grow and strengthen yourself: mind, body, and soul…right along with me.  
Sneak peek of what’s to come during these nine days:
