Ladies! Join us for a gorgeous fall Weekend Getaway at Word of Life Lodge and Conference Center!


In Christ we have all we need: all the direction, protection and power. On our own we’ve got nothing but confusion, vulnerability and weakness. After the death of Moses, God appointed Joshua to lead the people of Israel into the Promise Land, which was no simple pursuit. Through obstacles of rivers, walls, worriers and warriors, Joshua was greatly successful because of two things: obedience and God-courage. We will be equipped for every battle as we implement the same strategies. Our speaker and worship leader, Gwen Smith, will unpack Scripture and will challenge listeners to be strong and courageous as they obey God.

Speaker: Gwen Smith

Gwen Smith is an author, speaker, worship leader, podcaster, songwriter and volleyball enthusiast who lives in sunny North Carolina and has been married to her hunky college honey, Brad, for 25 years. They are tired parents to three tall, competitive-sport-playing young people, ages 17-21, who keep them on their toes and on their knees. Her online friends meet at GwenSmith.net to connect and be encouraged, and her goal is to help women know and trust God more. Gwen is the host of the popular GRACEOLOGY with Gwen Smith podcast, and her latest book, I Want It ALL, encourages readers to “press on to take possession of God’s promises,” and comes complete with a Bible study guide and questions for reflection. Gwen speaks, leads worship, and eats potato chips at women’s events everywhere, and she is a co-founder of the conference and devotional ministry Girlfriends in God.

Gwen Smith

She has written and co-produced 6 full-length CDs and 2 EPs (both worship and Christian contemporary songs).
