Stories of beauty in the brokenness and hope in the hard. Chapters when mountains were moved and God was found in the dirt. Through it all we’ve learned to trust in Jesus. We’ve grown from what we have gone through. Whether you consider your self young or old, God wants you to tell your story for His glory!
On October 7th, be ready to get into the dirt to see how the pain in your past can affect how you are living today. While this is a heavy topic, we know women will feel empowered and leave with a sense of hope. You'll also see how God has played a role in your story.
We will be hearing from Amy Sherman as she shares her story of healing from trauma after years of depression. Amy now guides others to sift through the broken pieces of their lives and reclaim their voices, their bodies and their stories so they may truly live.
Delicious food with a surprise dessert, videos, worship, and a panel will be included in the day. We are also bringing in Barnstorm Coffee Company’s Traveling Barista for a fun new addition to the day! Your first drink is included with registration and additional drinks may be purchased.
Our boutique is back with a variety of new items to purchase along with some of our staple items. Conference T-Shirts are available to purchase with your registration. We encourage you to pre-order these as limited sizes and quantity will be available day of.
Join us for this year’s conference and dive into your story.
We all have a story.
Keynote Part 1
Keynote Part 2
For the last 14 years, Amy Sherman has attended and served at LIFEchurch alongside Steve, her husband of 29 years, and her 4 children (who now range in age from high school to young adult). She’s “Mama Sherm” to those who know her well, a nickname given because of the caring and attentive ear she gives to the stories and people who cross her path–whether they are youth, adults, or colleagues on staff.
Amy has a BA in Psychology from the University of Iowa and Two Narrative-Focused Trauma Care Certifications from the Seattle School of Theology and Psychology. She is an Allender-Center Story and Trauma Coach and is a certified Mental Health Coach.
Having experienced her own healing from trauma after years of depression, Amy now guides others to sift through the broken pieces of their lives and reclaim their voices, their bodies, and their stories so that they may truly live. She wants those in the church who are bound by pain to have a safe space to tell their stories and receive care in a deep and contained way. This transformational and redemptive process, known as "Storywork", is dependent on the Holy Spirit who gives us the courage to turn our faces towards the pain and beauty, connection and betrayal, and the shame and the glory of our lives.
