Conference graphic

Through personal anecdotes, biblical truths, and thought-provoking discussion questions, this event equips moms and daughters to cultivate the depth of relationship their hearts crave. The relationship God Himself wants them to experience.

Session One: Loving With Grace

Grace provides the emotional cushion we need to heal and thrive individually and Conference image 2relationally. In Christ, we’re accepted despite our greatest weakness and worst failures. The more we understand and learn to live in this truth, the better we’re able to give and receive God’s perfect love. In this brief presentation, author and speaker Jennifer Slattery shares how her failings deeply wounded her daughter and how God’s grace brought increased healing to them individually and relationally.

Session Two: Loving From a Christ-Centered Identity

We are not rejected, insufficient, or what others think or expect of us. We are deeply loved, empowered, and grace-covered daughters of Christ. Living in this reality helps us lower our defenses, kills our desire for competition or comparisons, and enables us to live and love as the women God created us to be. When we live in our Christ-centered identity, we speak freedom to our moms and daughters as well.

Session Three: Loving Through Active Listening

What if we could actively build relational trust and reach the heart before disagreements become walls between us? Experts say most of us equate feeling heard to being loved, yet many of us struggle to truly listen well. In our rushed, opinionated, and disconnected world, many of us feel unheard, unvalued, and unseen. This is so contrary to God’s desire. Our God “searches and knows” each of us and invites us to love one another as He loves. In this presentation, counselor Stefanie Rowe guides moms and daughters to listen with empathy and patience.

Session Four: Next Steps

God Himself built into us women the need for connection. While sometimes challenging and confusing, the mother-daughter relationship can lead to great fulfillment and emotional intimacy. In this presentation, author and speaker Shellie Arnold helps women find strength, hope, and guidance in Christ as they learn to love one another well.
