“Now then, stand still and see this great thing the LORD is about to do before your eyes!”
1 Samuel 12:16 NIV
March 29-30, 2019
Most women are busy, very busy! Our minds as well as our schedules are full. We are naturally impatient because we’re efficient, action oriented and focused on finishing without delay. Join us as we look at evidence, current and timeless, on the need for and value of “pressing pause” and discuss methods to do so.
Halifax County Middle School Cafeteria
1011 Middle School Cir, South Boston, VA 24592
We invite ALL WOMEN to come aside in a safe, comfortable and welcoming environment. We believe that if/as we ‘come aside’, God will speak in ways we can hear. And speak to the places in our lives that most need the ‘life changing love of Christ!’ We invite you to save Friday evening, March 29th and Saturday, March 30th to ‘come aside’!
Friday March 29, 2019, THRIVE, A Celebration For Women is a free event

Ann Vail Dalton
Ann is a Real Estate Title Examiner and the Owner of Dalton Land & Title. She is a 2 x Ironman and endurance athlete that always competes for a “why”.
Ann loves to share her horses and the lessons they’ve taught her. In 2008, she and her family started a small “saddle club” for a few riding students to have a farm experience one summer. Although she thought that was a once and done commitment, the Lord had other plans. After 10 years “Ranch RoundUp” as it became known, grew to over 80 kids with double that in volunteers. Ann’s heart beats the loudest when she can combine horse time with devotions for others. By the 10th year, she wasn’t sure if the camp was for the kids or the volunteers.
Ann and her husband Mark live on a farm in Evington VA with their son, Landon, who is a Junior at Liberty University. Ann gives her son credit for reminding her to be strong & courageous.
After graduating from Radford University, Ann received her paralegal certification in Atlanta, GA. In addition, she holds a license in title underwriting; and, is a certified title examiner. She is very grateful for a career that allows her to travel with her husband for his job in the automotive industry. Ann doesn’t strive for balance at work or play. Harmony is her goal.
She considers herself “failing forward” and is thankful for a God that loves her where she is.
When she isn’t working, training or farming, Ann loves to hunt waterfowl and upland birds. Her favorite places to worship are: in the duck blind on their property along the Bannister River; on the back of a horse; or on a long run. She is proof God never gives up on his flock.
