2018 Workshops

Who Needs to be Rescued?  With Jennifer Martin

As women we tend to care for others far more than we care for ourselves.  How can you overcome the guilt, comparison, and personal disappointment we put on ourselves when we fall short?  Come explore how we can show compassion to others and help rescue them when we know how to rescue ourselves first.

Jennifer Martin is married to Ryan and they have 4 daughters.  Her family currently attends Cross Church in AR where they live now but were former Wedgwood members.  Jennifer works for MOPS International as a Volunteer Manager.  She recruits, trains, and develops leaders to realize their potential as a woman, mother, and leader.  For fun Jennifer enjoys traveling, photography, fly fishing with her husband and cheering on her four girls in whatever activity they are involved.

Great Expectations!!??!! With Joni Hill

How do we know how much to expect?  Do we dare to expect great things? What happens when others- or events-or I, myself, don’t live up to my expectations?  We will look at the balance between expectations and grace in several areas of our lives, and how to bring those under the Lordship of the Savior that never disappoints.

Engaging Culture- Navigating our Changing World With Pam Cheek

Culture seems to have gone wild.  Even our public bathrooms seem to be places that are at risk.  Families and the Church are struggling to respond.  What would Jesus do?  How do we, as Christian women, engage our culture to make a difference for Christ.

Beauty along the Broken Road With Susie Henning

My road was my road.  God had a better road for me but I had a hard time reading the map.  His road has not always been easy or straight, but His road has been full of blessings.  My road did not include a layoff, breast cancer or a parent with dementia.  But His road did and I am learning to follow His road.  Join me as I tell you how I have learned to navigate life following His map (His Word) instead of my own map.
