Before I attended WWC I was not as active in my faith as I had wished to be. I rarely prayed, I worked on Sundays, and I didn’t even know where to find my bible. It’s in my experience at WWC and the months that have followed that I have realized that exposure to something that will in no doubt change your life forever is not always something that you realize immediately, especially if God is writing the script.
As a gift to my mother for her birthday this past March, I attended the WWC here in Mooresville. Not only a gift to my mother, attending turned out to be one of the most contributing factors in the growth of my relationship with Christ. I got to spend time with familiar faces and I was given the opportunity to meet and connect with so many different women in my community. The combination of testimonies, music, the overall message overwhelmed my heart with love from Jesus that I had never been able to acknowledge before.
I prayed harder than I have ever prayed in my 21 years of life in the months after I attended the Whole Women’s Conference. I prayed to God to use me, I prayed to him that I was his and that I wanted to serve him in anyways he deemed necessary because I wished to be able to touch other hearts with his love the way mine was touched at WWC.
It has been roughly 7 months since attending WWC and I am amazed every day when I think about the changes God has made in my life. Over the summer I was given the opportunity to be a part of worship at Rocky Mount UMC. I have conversations with God multiple times every day, he is one of my best friends. Church is one of my favorite places to be and the bible is my direct line to Jesus. As often as I can, I read the word of god and pray that he continues use me to spread his word and show others how great he truly is.
The Whole Women’s Conference opened my heart in ways that I didn’t know were possible and gave me the strength to trust and have faith in our amazing God.
