During the past year, the world experienced the collective trauma of a global pandemic, racial injustice, political tensions, and economic upset. Families and individuals are reeling, and often it is women who are asked to bear the additional burdens of comforting others, caregiving, and creating a “new normal” within their communities. We want this summit to be a source of holistic strength - a resource for the mind, body, heart, and soul of women that they can take forward with a renewed sense of hope.
2020 has challenged all of us in so many ways. Julia will use her experience as a licensed clinical professional counselor to offer insights into how we've been affected by the collective trauma of this past year as well as providing concrete authentic self-care strategies to help you and your loved ones thrive during this difficult time.
Do you LOVE making plans, but you struggle with not following them? Has time management consistently been a struggle for you? Are you a perfectionist who wants to stop procrastinating? Imagine having a weekly schedule that allows you to breathe and simply be. Just picture it: You have hobbies and fun activities lined up in your schedule (that you actually do). You’ve embraced working with the natural cycles of your body and not against them. You sleep soundly and without thoughts of work keeping you awake. You close your laptop at a decent hour and head to bed feeling proud of the work you've done for the day. In this talk, you'll learn the key elements you must have in your weekly schedule in order to prioritize rest and the mindset shifts you need to follow through on the plans you create.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

"Prayer is the breath of life to our soul" said St. Teresa of Calcutta. Prayer is usually used as a means of communication with our Lord, whether it is for praise, petition, or worship, but prayer can be so much more! In this talk, we will explore with Karianna Frey ways of resting in prayer, how prayer can help us remain resilient to the ever-changing world around us, and ways of starting and maintaining a prayer life with the goal of making prayer as natural as breathing.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We know callings mean work, whether personal or professional. But do they require rest, too? Scripture is clear on this question: absolutely. In this talk, we’ll explore rest and vocation: how God calls us to rest as part of our work and relationships in the world and how Sabbath practices help us build resilience for the long haul of vocation. Rest is not simply self-care for the privileged but a counter-cultural witness to our faith in God’s care. Learn how you (yes, busy you!) can find more time and space for rest amid all that God calls you to be and do. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
