Join our Live online conference
May 2-4, 2018
You can join us LIVE, follow along with the community, and interact with the speakers! You will also get lifetime access to the sessions so you can watch them anytime, anywhere, and on any device...even if you can't participate live!
Fully Online
A one-of-a-kind community
Are you longing to dive deeper into God's Word, but are also longing for a little community? This is a one of a kind opportunity to do both with our fully online Bible conference! It's a fully online conference where Gospel-Centered theology meets everyday practical living. 

And the best part? You don't have to find a babysitter, pay for a plane ticket, arrange a hotel, etc. It's all online so you can participate and watch from the comfort of your living room - in your pajamas! 
Watch anytime
Everything is recorded! 
One really fun aspect of this conference is getting to participate live with all the other attendees and speakers. 

But as a busy mom with five young kids myself, I know that it's not always realistic to watch along live. So whether you miss one session - or all of them - you can watch later. 

We record all the sessions (at NO extra charge) and you get them to watch anytime you need - even if that's in six months or in a year! I really want to make this conference as flexible as possible for you. 
Join the Community
Including a pajama kick off party! 
The 20 conference sessions this year are obviously amazing, but the really FUN part of the conference is the private Facebook group community! 

A great part about learning to study the Bible is doing so in community! So if you are looking for like-minded women who want to grow in their knowledge of God - this is the place to be! You will get the chance to interact with all the other attendees, chat directly with each speaker after their session, and get to participate in some really fun parties and giveaways during the week. The private Facebook community might just be my very favorite part of the whole conference!

"I loved it! I was so uplifted and felt so motivated. God really showed me so many things through these beautiful women! It was so encouraging to hear that others have the same questions and struggles, and so awesome to learn how to glorify God while we do it all!"
When you struggle to connect with God on a deeper level...
As a busy wife and mom to five young kids - my spiritual life can sometimes feel like a roller coaster! Some days I feel connected to God, I remember to pray, and I even fit in my Bible reading! 

Other days feel as dry as the Sahara Desert! I wonder why I don't feel close to God, I struggle to make consistent habits of Bible reading and prayer, and sometimes I just don't know where to start with it all! 

Do you ever struggle with this?

No matter your season or stage of life, no matter if you are a brand new Christian, or have been one for decades - one thing is true: it can be tough to dig deeper into God's Word. And then sometimes, even when we do form consistent habits and discipline ourselves to be in the Word, it can be hard to learn to actually enjoy being IN God's Word! 
So how do we change this? 

How do we learn how to dig in deeper to God's Word AND learn to enjoy it (and Him) more fully in the process?

Whether you want to know how the Old Testament fits into God's larger plan better, or you want to know how to study the different genres of the Bible, or you want to do a solid study through the book of Jonah...

...this online Bible conference is for you! 

Like I said - I'm a busy mom of 5 young kids! See that picture over there -->
That's me and my family! We had five kids in four years, including two sets of twin boys. 

While they have been the biggest blessing in my life - it has also taught me more than anything, the importance of being disciplined and consistent with my time with the Lord. 

One of the people that have impacted me the most when it comes to learning these disciplines and gaining practical, hands-on tools for deeper Bible study, is Katie Orr. 

<--- (Pssst: That's her beautiful family right there!)

She is the author or 6 Bible studies, she is married to a senior pastor, and together they host a Bible podcast that you can't miss. 

When she approached me about co-hosting an online Bible conference, my immediate answer was YES!! 

Katie and her husband will be leading us through 6 keynote sessions all about the book of Jonah. We are going to deep dive into that book (which I am really looking forward to!) and then we have a bunch of breakout sessions covering a ton of other practical topics. 

I know this conference is going to be life changing and habit forming as it has already had a huge impact on me and my ability to learn to enjoy God's Word more and more! 
Will you join us for the conference this year? 
Join us for the live portion of the conference May 2-4, 2018, and you will also get access to rewatch the sessions forever as they are yours to keep! 
The conference starts in just a few days!! 
The Schedule, Sessions, & Speakers
We have 20 incredible speakers who will be teaching through keynote sessions, breakout sessions, and giving us a ton of wonderful information so we can all walk away from the week enjoying God and His Word just a little bit more!

A study through Jonah
Throughout the conference, Chris and Katie are going to be teaching a series through the book of Jonah. While the breakout sessions will give us the opportunity to dip our toes into a bunch of different topics, this keynote series will allow us to go deep into one book of God's Word. 

When was the last time you did an in-depth study on Jonah? Do you know what God is trying to teach us through this Old Testament book? 

Through their 6 keynote sessions, they will explore the patience, presence, and provisions of an Almighty God. 

Experience God's Patience. Embrace His Presence. Enjoy Divine Provision.

How to Study the More Challenging Parts of the Bible with Confidence
Let’s face it: some parts of the Bible are just plain hard to understand. So we tend to spend our time in the easier-to-understand parts of the Bible—like the narratives and the psalms.

This session demystifies the six primary challenges to reading the Bible and equips you with the practical tools you need to engage every biblical text with confidence.
