Meet Aileen…
AGE: 31

WHY SHE KEEPS ATTENDING: I attend the SheRises Conference because every year I hear the messages and speakers, somethings speak to my current state however much more of it I don’t understand at that moment in time and I have realized that its words and messages that prepare me for what’s ahead and it’s not until the following year that I see why that word was needed to be in me so that I could overcome and get through what was ahead.

HER FAVORITE CONFERENCE MOMENT: My favorite moment has to be the dance pieces, they are just so beautiful and remind me that God gives us the gifts and that its ok to worship Him through them.

WHAT SHE WOULD SAY TO SOMEONE CONSIDERING ATTENDING CONFERENCE: Come, have an open heart, it’s going to transform your views and perspective. There’s nothing better than seeing women rise together and lifting others as we push to rise.

HER STORY: God spoke a word into my ear 4 years ago at my very 1st GodChicks event only a year after I had accepted Jesus into my life. Isaiah 54:2 “Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes.” I had no idea what it meant, but I felt it in my heart that God would do amazing things if I did not hold back, if only i would allow Him to stretch me. Today 4 years later OMGoodness has he stretched and enlarged. Out of that has come 3 annual Friendsgiving women dinner, increased the number of ladies in attendance as a group to the annual GodChicks (70 this year). And this year our very first Women’s Conference which completely blew our minds! We prayed for 300, and asking God if only He would bring 500, well He showed up and showed off, He packed the house at capacity at 1,000! This is only a bit of what he has done and continues to do through She Rises inspiring us that we can reach His women here at home.
