Creating Women of God Event

Hello friends!

It has been a LONG time since I have posted anything on my blog ... but when I come back, I come back with a bang!  I am so excited to introduce a new event I will be hosting in May called "Creating Women of God".

I have been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for close to seven years now and from the very beginning of my "business", I have always felt that my stamping hobby is a ministry.  I am finally taking the next step to actually hold an event centered around being creating women of God ~ using creativity to make faith-based cards and gifts.  At the same time, I'm happy to present two amazing speakers who will help us grow in our faith journey.

Cynthia Davis, author of a dozen books, including 6 Biblical novels will present a talk titled "Gifted and Grace Filled"  How often do we not realize how gifted we really are? God has blessed each one of us with gifts and showered us with the grace to live into those gifts. Naomi in the Old Testament had a hard time understanding that her life was, in fact, full of God’s grace. Like Naomi, we sometimes think we don’t have anything to offer. Cynthia will introduce us to the heart of Naomi and help us discover God’s gifts and grace in each of our lives.  Several of Cynthia’s books will be for sale at the event.  Cynthia will also lead us in a creative activity called a Faith Tree at the end of her talk.

Anne Duran is the Director of All Angels Episcopal Day School.  Married to the love of her life, Frankie and blessed with a beautiful daughter, Ema, Anne is well qualified to speak to us about "Everyday Blessings".  At the end of Anne's talk, we will be working on a "Blessing Jar" for each participant to take home and further reflect on the everyday blessings in our lives.

In addition to the two creative projects tied to Cynthia and Anne's talks, we will also be making six faith-based cards using Stampin' Up! products.  You will need to bring your own adhesive, but everything else you need will be provided for you.  The cards will be the perfect tool for you to take home and use to minister to and bless the people in your life.  Sadly, in our age of digital media, receiving an actual card in the mail these days is a rarity.  And receiving a hand-stamped, faith-based card with hand-written words of encouragement on the inside?  Well ~ that's priceless!

I hope you will join us for what is sure to be a morning of joy, fellowship, friendship, faith-based teaching and creating.  Space is limited, so sign up soon!

When:   Saturday, May 19   9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
