Gosh, it’s now about two to three years ago I began to follow this little online community called Pursuit. Birthed by an Oregon mother of three (two at the time) with a full-time photography business, she ached to commune with other Christian entrepreneurial women and build authentic community. So she and her husband started an annual conference for women called Pursuit. For the past five years, 250 women have been meeting at a retreat centre in Rome, Georgia for a few days to hold workshops, worship, get refreshed and challenged in the Lord and in creativity and business. They encourage ladies who come, to start Pursuit Community groups in their area that can meet to connect and encourage one another in their walk with the Lord and in their businesses.
Like a magnet, I’ve felt drawn to go, and so wishing we had something like this in Canada! Creatives ‘get’ creatives, and when you add in the hearts of a love for the Lord and a desire to serve Him, you get all sorts of connectivity going on. I’d literally watch the videos from previous conferences online and read the testimonials and cry. I need this!
So last October, Troy and I signed me up to go; it sold out within six hours! Little did we know then that I would be 16 weeks pregnant and still working contract jobs from home. But God knew, and He still knows. I feel like there is something ever so special at this conference for myself and every lady going, and I would so love it if you would pray for us as we’re at the conference next week!
Pray that God speaks to each of us just what we need to hear. Pray for safety in travel, God-sent conversations and friendships, and for something to ignite afresh in all of us both spiritually and creatively.
Thank you all! xo
