You will not want to miss this event! If you are hurting, disconnected or unfulfilled, join other sisters who feel the same way. If you desire to make a difference in your community, come and connect with us. This conference is for all abused women and those who want to help them.
The primary focus of the Tri County Women’s Conference is emotional healing. Discover your true value and worth; join in establishing a sisterhood where women stand alongside other women for encouragement and acceptance; help yourself and others grow prosperously, develop confidence and set goals for the future.
“In this first event, we want to set the pace and start a chain reaction that will ignite the world,” says conference developer, Gloria Miller. The inspiration for the event primarily came from Miller’s own experience in volunteering at Another Way’s shelter for women. She saw women leave the shelter and return to their abusers, repeating the cycle of abuse again and again. This experience, coupled with the knowledge gained through her own personal struggles with emotional trauma, sparked her desire to help. Then a friend shared the belief that “soul ties” with the abuser must be broken in order for the abused to be truly free. This fired Miller’s inspiration to be the missing link to those in need.
“In time to come, we want to become a connecting hub for churches and other organizations that help with the practical, emotional and spiritual needs of women,” she says. “Many organizations already exist, but because they are not readily known to the churches and the public as a whole, the help they offer is not being utilized.”
Miller’s philosophy is that one group cannot fix the problem of widespread emotional hurt among women. By connecting organizations together through the Conference, individuals can be a resource in helping others. “As we do this, we can become who we are and boldly go where no woman has gone before,“ Miller says. This, in turn, will light a torch that can be passed to the next generation of women who then will pass it along to others.
