Brenda Pace, Terri Barnes Lead Workshops at Gather Conference Sept. 28-30, 2017
September 28, 2017 at 4:00 pm - September 30, 2017 at 5:00 pm MDT
Brenda Pace and Terri Barnes, coauthors of Stories Around the Table: Laughter, Wisdom, and Strength in Military Life, will each lead workshops at Gather, a Christian conference for military-connected women, Sept. 28-30, 2017, at Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Brenda’s workshop, “The Call Forward,” will encourage women to meet every new challenge with confidence, even when it means stepping out of a comfort zone.
“Each step on life’s journey holds a new awareness of God and yourself,” Brenda says.
Her interactive workshop will give participants opportunities to explore together the challenges, methods, and opportunities of moving forward in the call of God.
In addition to her essay “The Perfect Move,” a story about her family’s experience with military moves, in Stories Around the Table, Brenda is the author of a four-book series called Journey of a Military Wife. Her other books include Medals Above My Heart, and One Year Yellow Ribbon Devotional.
Terri’s workshop, “Write From the Heart,” is about writing as a spiritual exercise for growth and outreach. She will discuss journaling as a devotional tool, and letter writing as a means of sharing faith.
“Writing is often overlooked as a form of worship and ministry,” Terri says, “but it has been both throughout history, and it still is today.”
As well as editing and contributing to Stories Around the Table, Terri is the author of Spouse Calls: Messages from a Military Life, a compilation of her long-running column in Stars and Stripes.
