17 Jul The Layers of a Praying Woman: Tips for Unrestful Times – Week THREE
This week was the third and final week of our conference, The Layers of a Praying Woman: Tips for Unrestful Times. The Layers of a Praying Woman: Tips for Unrestful Times is a virtual mini-conference specifically for women – but all kinds, from stay-at-home mamas to college students to women in the workplace! The two things that unite us in this community is our love for Christ and the fact that we are human!
On last Friday and Day SIX of the conference, we heard from the author, Kelly Needham, Management Consultant, Victoria Cooper, author, Atoya Follins, blogger, Ashtin Anio and realtor, Karen Clark about Friendish: Sustaining Friendship in a Pandemic. This panel of women, along with the author of the book ‘Friendish: Reclaiming Real Friendship in a Culture of Confusion’ discussed what friendships might look like in a pandemic. We also discussed communicating in friendships and sustaining friendships through multiple seasons of life. You can rewatch it here and get access to her notes here.
On Monday of this week and Day SEVEN of the conference, we heard from the couple, Minister Lisa Lazard, on How to stay Spiritually Grounded During a Pandemic. Minister Lisa talked about keeping prayer conversational and straightforward during this time and remembering God’s goodness.
