Breakout Session:


How God Can Use the Worst Part of Your Story in Your Writing and Speaking

All of us have experienced hard times, even trauma. We’ve done terrible things, or we’ve had terrible things done to us. But we’re not defined by the worst thing we’ve ever done, or that’s been done to us. God is a God of redemption. Literally making beauty from ashes. In this workshop, we’ll talk about how the worst parts of our story can bring blessing and healing to others!
