I am so thankful for the opportunity to attend Arise!
I am so thankful for such a great second night of Arise Conference where we got to hear from more amazing speakers. It was my first time hearing Pastor Lisa Bevere speak, though I love her books and audiobooks!
It was just so powerful to see how God uses other women in our lives to help us to grow and mature so that we can be complete in every way, and lacking in nothing. Generations really are a beautiful thing, as we are able to help sharpen and uplift one another.
I’m so grateful to all of the pioneering women leaders that have come before me, and for such an amazing spiritual experience. I feel so blessed to be living in a time like this where there are these empowering spaces and communities. Although I didn’t meet anyone at conference (I’m shy), I was really glad to just feel the energies of other women in the room. It’s funny that being in a room with other people is something to get excited about post-COVID, but I really believe that we are meant to have that human connection.
As Hawaii reopens, I’m glad that we have been able to hold on to the one thing that is real, that is steadfast, and that is good – God’s love. This last year, I have experienced and witnessed so much growth and I just know that God is so real and is so present. I hope that I can learn to be more present this year, to really sit with the challenges I face instead of running from them, and to stay disciplined in faith.
