What prompted you to organize this women’s summit and what do you hope to achieve through it? While all of God’s creation has a special place in the heart of God, I believe women pull on his heart strings in a different way. Women are life givers, especially of the life of God, and when that life flow is hindered the entire human race suffers.
Additionally, for several years spiritual leaders across the globe have been sensing and sharing that the emergence of women – the energy of compassion, tenderness, empathy – is coming to the forefront. It is time for women to rise and take their place as co-creators in bringing restoration and transformation to those in our life circles.
