Do you ever feel like you’re not good enough, smart enough, or valuable enough? Do words you say to yourself, or hear from others, make you question your worth and purpose? Best-selling author, Renee Swope understands. Even with a great family, a successful career, and a thriving ministry, she still sometimes struggled with paralyzing self-doubt.


Author and speaker, Renee Swope, joins us for this year's Women's Conference: A Radiant Heart, a Friday night/Saturday morning event.  Based on her best-selling book A Confident Heart,  Renee offers the voice of a friend who candidly and humorously shares her struggles and victories in overcoming self-doubt.

At the 2017 women's conference, Renee will help us identify what triggers feelings of insecurity, and show us how to replace any lack of self-confidence with lasting God-confidence so that we can be women with radiant hearts: hearts that walk in truth and shine His light!

Saturday morning features 2 breakout sessions: 11am & noon.
Each breakout is offered at each session.


*Alberta's message ;will be interpreted for the deaf and hard of hearing at the first session (11am).

Although she accepted Christ at age 11, Alberta grew up in a broken, non-Christian home. In adulthood, she’s experienced major health problems, the death of their third child, and the challenges of raising a child with autism.

Through the many twists and turns of her life, she’s learned truths that have not only carried her, but given her a resounding message of hope and encouragement. She adds sign language and song to her powerful testimony to remind listeners that God sees, God knows, and God loves his children.

Married for 29 years to a godly husband with whom she's had the pleasure of raising 4 children, Alberta Stewart also sings in the choir and teaches kindergarten at a small private school.
