GENERAL & Breakout SESSIONS
Descriptions coming soon!
Next-Level Writer: Take Your Writing from Private to Public Venues ~ Ann Kroeker
(NOTE: registration and an additional fee are required for this workshop; please see below.)
We live in a time when anyone with Internet access can reach people all around the world. Have you felt your pulse quicken with the thought of doing just that? Of sending your writing out into the world?
You may be hesitant, unsure where to begin. You want to know what steps will take your writing to the next level and raise your confidence.
We'll discuss the power of writing habits you may already be practicing--or can easily begin.
You'll learn how to explore new opportunities that best fit your personality. You'll see how creative storytelling is possible using online tools you may already use.
By the end of our session, you'll identify actions you can take to connect with readers waiting to hear the message you feel led to share.
And the experience doesn't end at Winsome. Those who join this session will be invited to join a four-week Facebook group just for Winsome Next-Level Writers--an opportunity for mutual encouragement as you move forward with your writing goals (co-hosted by Ann Kroeker and Kim Hyland).
FEE: $50 (limited availability)

Movement Workshop ~ Lisha Epperson
Are you in the wilderness? Consider movement as part of your wilder yes. Using contemplative applications of ritual and embodied prayer we'll explore the spiritual practice of movement within contemporary and classical techniques. No previous experience necessary. Wear comfortable clothing.
Holy Yoga ~ Doran Richards
Holy Yoga is the intentional practice of connecting our entire being, body, mind and spirit with God: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. With complete reliance on God's Word and prayer, Holy Yoga invites us to surrender and introduces us to Grace. When we breathe and move and have our being in Christ, we find ourselves in the flow of His magnificence. There is often a misunderstanding that yoga is a religion; it is not. Yoga is a spiritual discipline, much like prayer, fasting and meditation. Yoga has the capacity to enhance our personal beliefs and faith.
We practice with our minds set on whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent or praiseworthy (Phil 4:8), not with our minds emptied. We meditate on the wisdom of God's Word (Psalm 119:9-16, 26-27), not on man's wisdom. We seek the transcendence and glory of God, not our own.
Holy Yoga is an experiential worship created to deepen people's connection to Christ. Our sole purpose is to facilitate a Christ honoring experience that offers an opportunity to believers and non-believers alike to authentically connect to God through His Word, worship, and wellness. Holy Yoga exists to carry the gospel to the ends of the earth through the modality of yoga. (Taken from Holy Yoga website.)
Word Writers Workshop ~ Denise Hughes
Every season of life presents its own unique challenges. And it’s easy to think we’ll have more time to be in God’s Word when our work schedule slows down or the kids get a little older or life gets just a little less crazy. We’ve all been there! This session is devoted to giving women grace for when our quiet time doesn’t go exactly as planned, and it offers some real-life practical solutions for how to be in the Word—in every stage of life. Because our ultimate goal is to know God and love Him deeply through the study of His Word. The Word Writers Workshop will help you:
>> Overcome the six challenges to reading the Bible.
>> Identify the two lenses that demystify those really difficult passages.
>> Create some simple steps for daily study that’s both doable and enjoyable.
