This past weekend, 100 women from the community of Fowlerville, MI gathered together to worship, grow and connect! Women of all ages and stages came together to hear messages on what kills our impact as LeadHers and how God calls us to be a “light” in our communities and our world.
Leadher Local Fowlerville, has been meeting since February of last year and this weekend gave the women in this chapter a chance to pour into the women of their own community. LeadHer Live events serve a variety of purposes- they are designed so the LeadHer team is able to personally visit and connect with local chapters, for chapters within the region to come together once a year, and to bring LeadHer to the community. Many women voiced a desire to connect with the chapter on a monthly level and at least one amazing young lady gave her life to Jesus.
The most amazing parts of these nights are not about the production but about the women. After the first message, the entire group of ladies divided into groups surrounding the auditorium. They shared with the group the things in their life that often kill their impact and were able pour into each other individually. We were able to hear stories of how God has brought moms and daughters back together through LeadHer, how responding with prayer has dramatically changed the relationships in families and at work, and how God is using the gifts and talents in Fowlerville to serve Him even when it does not always make sense.
Women walked away from the event challenged to live as light in every area of their lives. We are excited to visit this area again in 2016 and hear how God is working in this community and in the lives of the women all over the area. We are praying for more chapters to start in Michigan and looking forward to the launch of LeadHer Local Detroit later this year!
