In The Midst of the Storm

October 6, 2016

Today we are headed over to Apple Valley to set up the boutique for Sparkle! If you’re just tuning in and haven’t heard us gushing about it – Sparkle is a Christian Women’s Conference put on by River Valley Church. As Cate wrote about HERE, we are helping put on the boutique within the conference. This event will host over 50 handmade vendors – all excited to show you the love they’ve poured out just for you!

What exactly is the Sparkle Conference all about? Here’s a little explanation straight from their website. It says it best.


The world we live in is full of storms, trials and chaos. We have to weather the storms that come before us as mothers, sisters, daughters and wives, but we don’t have to do it alone.

In the midst of the storm, God is our anchor; we are anchored in Him. He is our safe place and our shelter. He keeps us grounded and secure, even when the waves are big and tumultuous.

Hebrews 6:19 says, We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.


Sparkle is a two-day conference designed for women of all ages! Becca Ketterling, the Women’s Ministry Director at River Valley Church, had a dream of starting this Conference to unite, encourage and empower women. Eight years later, it has flourished into a dynamic, life-giving, powerful conference with over 1,800 women in attendance!

The conference will be held at one location, our Apple Valley Campus, but will be offered twice back-to-back, to allow more women to come. Sparkle One will be October 6-7 and Sparkle Two will be October 7-8. We’re excited to bring in guest speakers Holly Wagner and Julie Mullins this year! We’ll also have outreach, vendors, food, worship, prayer, fun and photo-booths.


This year at Sparkle we are expecting God to download hope and strength into you. We believe He has a unique message for each of his beautiful daughters. We pray that you will be refreshed as you learn, laugh and invest in the most important relationship in your life.

We love you, believe in you and want to encourage you to join us for Sparkle 2016! God wants to impart strategy and wisdom into you and we want to bless you with joy, hugs, acceptance, gifts, and smiles.
