Kingdom Women Arise Conference
On May 6th, 2023, I attended a remarkable event called “Kingdom Women Arise Conference, The Trailblazers” event at the beautiful American Royal Palace in Phoenix. Elizabeth Bland and Jeannette Mendez hosted the conference to inspire and empower women.
Our podcast panel of experts from Fotaleciendo a la Mujer (Strengthening Women) Aracelli Silva-Duarte, Jeannette, and myself explored the idea that money and faith are connected. We were each given 15 minutes to share our stories.
The conference was well-attended, with about one hundred people in the audience. There was a mixture of members of the congregation and residents interested in listening and learning from our experiences.
One memorable moment that stood out to me was when, after coming down from the stage, I was approached by a woman who reached out her arms to hug me. She told me she was in the process of returning to an abusive relationship with her husband, but changed her mind after hearing my story. She’s a mother of two, living in her sister’s house, trying to survive independently.
Many other women approached me as well, finding comfort and strength in my story. Their courage and determination prove the importance of events like the “Kingdom Women’s Arise Conference.” These gatherings inspire women of all backgrounds to stand tall, share their experiences, and pave the way for a brighter, more empowered future.
