Upcoming Conferences:


truefeelings3Emotions are a daily reality and yet they can be quite unpredictable.  We can careen from joy to anxiety and anger in a matter of moments.

Why has God created us with so much emotion?  What is the divine purpose of our emotions?  What does the gospel have to do with our emotions? Our upcoming “True Feelings” Women’s Conference aims to provide biblical answers to these complex questions and help us live out God’s good design for our emotions.   It is November 10-11, 2017 at Cornerstone Church of Knoxville.  

Our speakers are Jani Ortlund and Julie Lowe. Jani, the wife of Immanuel Church pastor Ray Ortlund, is an author and speaker who loves to connect women with the Word of God. She is also a mother, grandmother, and former elementary school teacher. When she is not speaking, writing, or visiting family, you’ll find her in her garden, enjoying tea with a friend, or taking a long walk with her beloved husband.

Julie is a faculty member and counselor with Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation (CCEF) in Philadelphia, PA. While she is a licensed professional counselor with other 15 years of counseling experience, she is a gifted speaker and regularly speaks on topics like women’s issues, body image, sexual abuse, and others. She and her husband Greg have six children and serve as foster and adoptive parents.
