I'm passionate about encouraging, equipping, and praying for women to live out God's purposes and best plan for their lives.
The vision for the first Exhale Weekend came from personal focused weeks of prayer in early 2016 in a season where I felt a particular burden for women. So many around me were asking the same questions about calling, purpose, meaning, connection. And so many felt so alone. It broke my heart because I remembered a season when I felt incredibly isolated, and it was in that season where the enemy wreaked havoc on my family. But GOD won. He always wins and I have a strong desire to see everyone live in the freedom, power, and authority that Jesus gives us as Believers.
Exhale 2016 was a weekend in Leipers Fork, TN in a story book hillside barn. The space was intentionally created to provide a place for women to come rest and receive. A place to gather, worship, laugh, pray, and talk about what it looks like to lean into the unforced rhythms of Jesus's grace focusing on Matthew 11:28-30. It was an unforgettable two days filled with encouragement, connecting, scripture focused teachings, worship, and amazing food. Community doesn't just happen. It flourishes in a safe place of engagement. We experienced community in a way only God could have orchestrated. Women who attended wanted to stay connected and left with a strong desire to invite others in.
Exhale Women was birthed.
