In our world today, it can feel like everything is swirling out of control - all the news is negative, life is often confusing, and we are "hard pressed" at all times. We read our bibles, attend women's studies and church services, and we know what we are supposed to do to stay in God's will but, practically, how does that manifest itself in our daily lives when it seems we can hardly keep up with the pace of daily living?
A Time of Joy Women's Conference is a unique experience designed to revive and renew our minds and spirits, and provide applicable guidance for tapping into that overflowing spring of living water that comes from Jesus Christ, who produces wells of unending joy no matter our circumstances. Come join us for practical workshops, motivating speakers, music & worship, food, fellowship, and refreshment.
Now, may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing,
so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Pray! Pray! Pray! Oh, You Mean Me? - Emma Brummett
A WORKSHOP ON PRAYER & FAITH: How is your prayer life? When was the last time you looked at it - really examined the bones of it, so to speak? I can almost see the "Oh you mean me?" look in your eyes. Let me be frank. If you already Pray, Pray, Pray, then this probably isn't for you. But for those who are new to this thing called prayer, who have a burden to pray but feel like their prayers are hitting the ceiling, or who maybe have prayed for years and are tired and in need of a time of refreshment, then come join me. We'll do a diagnostic together of your prayer life. Let's look at what prayer is, what it should look like in real life and not just on paper, and finally, how our faith ties into it. Proverbs 27:17 says, "...as iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another." Yes, sparks will fly, but we will be better for it. What say you? Are you ready to delve deep and strengthen your prayer life?

Wise Women Are Clothed In Contentment - Laura Hadley
A WORKSHOP ON GRATITUDE AND CONTENTMENT: Have you ever wondered how, in Philippians 4:11, Paul could say that he had learned to be content regardless of circumstances? Have you ever wondered why me or why not me? With culture and the wants of this world vying for our devotion, can you truly say you are content? Life hands us many unexpected turns. The financial, relational, physical, emotional, or spiritual trials of this life make it difficult to walk consistently in joy when we have hearts struggling for contentment. We can often find ourselves discontented, dissatisfied, or complacent without even understanding why. In this workshop, I will be sharing how the Lord taught me that contentment is something we learn and that it is possible. We will discuss some applications of biblical truth and perspective that reveal how through the sovereignty of God and the love of Christ, we can develop a heart of gratitude which is the foundation of true contentment.
Breaking Free From Perfectionism - Sheila Pomeroy
A WORKSHOP ON HEALING EMOTIONALLY: Many of us struggle with perfectionist tendencies, including myself, which can rob us of our joy. We often formulate unreachable goals for ourselves and for others, leading to disappointment and stress. God wants us to strive for excellence, but our own underlying needs, motivations, priorities, and wrong thinking can derail us from God’s plan for perfection. In this workshop, we will look at some of our mental ambushes, then look more closely at the problems perfectionists tend to deal with, and then finish with some practical ways to change our thinking that will truly help us break free from the perfectionist trap.
