For the second year in a row, Prescott will be home to the only Christian-based conference specifically for wives, moms, daughters of Military Personnel and First Responders. There are many Christian Women’s Conferences across the Nation, but this is the only one that is designed especially for and attended only by women who have a loved one who is serving or has served in the military (active, reserve, veteran) or as a First Responder. The event will take place Friday, July 16 – Saturday, July 17 at American Warehouse in Prescott.
“As the wife of a 24-year Marine and mom to a Marine Corps Aviator and Navy Seal Candidate, I felt called to create a conference that speaks to the unique needs of these women. I can tell you first hand that it’s not an easy role to hold! We need fellowship and support from other women who understand the challenges and joy of loving one with a warrior’s heart,” shares Cristi Silverberg-Rose, Founder/Executive Director of Bethany’s Gait Ranch & Lissa’s Legacy.
The conference will feature talks from Chris Blue, a former Laker Girl turned Pastor; Shirley Lindsay, a 34-year military wife and Christian speaker; and Rasha Gardner, Licensed Professional Counselor and sister of Delissa Blair for whom Lissa’s Legacy is named. There will also be a panel of military/first responder wives, a performance by Impact Dance Ministries, and “Battle Babe” activities to encourage the women to connect.
The registration fee is $50. For more information or to register, go HERE. The email is firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 928-499-9442. Scholarships are available.
The mission of Lissa’s Legacy, a program of Bethany’s Gait Ranch, is to provide wives of military and first responders (active, reserve, veteran) with fellowship, support, and tools to assist their husbands while ensuring the well-being of themselves and their children. The program is named in honor of Delissa Gardner Blair, who died at the hands of her combat veteran husband in 2016.
