A Big Announcement!

You may have heard the saying, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step.”  What may seem daunting and far off will never come any closer to being a reality unless you do something to make it happen.  Just six months ago, Neshama was an idea, a maybe, a what if.  It seemed overwhelming.  To attempt to create an online community for Messianic women and also bring them together for a conference are things that I had never done, but when God calls you to do something, and makes you physically ill so that you are compelled to do it, you take that first step.

It has been so amazing to see how God has been weaving together the various pieces.  I know that so many of you have been blessed by the wonderful blog posts that we’ve had from women in our community.  It is awesome to read the different “voices” and hear from you all how these posts were just what you needed on that day.  This is just the beginning of the Neshama blog! We already have more amazing women lined up to share their hearts with you.  If you’d like to write for us, just send us an email!

While the blog, instagram, and facebook posts have been wonderful, Neshama was birthed out of a desire to bring women together physically.  I have personally benefited from the amazing women’s retreats and conferences that I have been a part of in my lifetime.  Most recently, was the Daughters of Righteousness Conference in the Southeast, and I know many of you were blessed to be a part of the Beth Zion Women’s Retreat in the Northeast.  In the spirit of bringing women in the Messianic community together to be challenged, learn, grow, and fellowship together, I am so excited to announce the details for NESHAMA 2018: Soul Stirring – October 19-21, 2018 in Savannah, GA!  The conference fee is $120.


Main Web Page

EVERYTHING about this conference has been directed by God, and orchestrated in such a way that I know He has a purpose and plan for every minute that we will be together!  The theme, the speakers, the topics, the praise and worship leaders, and the venue are all 100% God!  I know that we are in for a life-transforming weekend!

The Neshama Conference is open to women ages 16 and up.  It is targeted toward Messianic women, but we are by no means exclusive!  The Neshama Conference is not affiliated with a particular Messianic organization.  In keeping with Neshama’s vision, we hope to bring together women from congregations across the US and Canada, regardless of affiliation, or lack thereof.  We are all just women wanting to unite in the Spirit! So invite your church friend!  Invite your unsaved Jewish friend!  Make it a Girls’ Weekend Trip to Savannah!  (You’ll find information about sight-seeing around Savannah in a link on the conference information page.)

My only sadness is that the venue is limited in its capacity.  I know we like to sometimes wait until the last minute to register for an event, but this is sure to sell out, and I don’t want you to regret that you were unable to join us in beautiful Savannah, GA!  Run, don’t walk, to the Neshama 2018 Conference information pageYou’ll be able to find out all about the conference and complete your registration there.  See you October 19 – 21, 2018 in Savannah, GA!!!!
