Look at what the Lord has done!
In this session, I will share my personal testimony of God’s restoration in my life. I’m continually amazed at His compassionate grace, faithfulness, and patience which have led me to grow into a brave woman of faith. I want to encourage you to trust God’s plan for your life so that you too can live in a place of peace, confidence, boldness, and bravery!
Greetings! My name is Lori Anderson. The first thing that I would have you to know about me is that I treasure my relationship with the Lord! Second to that, I love spending time with my wonderful husband Jeff, and all of our awesome family which includes five fabulous grandchildren who know me as Grammi. As a retired public school administrator, I now fill my days with family care and activities, traveling with Jeff, reading, cooking, and enjoying a variety of physical fitness activities.
On their journey, learning what it looked like to follow Jesus, a group of men found themselves in a desperate situation. On the waters, far from land, a strong wind had risen. Are you in that position? Far from land? The strong winds have risen and you are doing everything in your power to fight back the heavy waves? Jesus says to you today, “Don’t be afraid, take courage, I am here.” Join me as we unpack the scriptures that will encourage our hearts to be brave…and Step out!
It is a privilege to share a word of encouragement with you in 2023. My husband Wayne and I have been married for almost 25 years and have three children together. Family is very important to us. At Rose Heights Church, we spend our time loving on the babies. When we aren’t in the nursery, you may find me sharing the love of Jesus with women and children here and in Uganda. With expectancy, it is our prayer that Refresh 2023 ignites our hearts.
Transformed by Pain

Being Brave through Grief
We have all experienced grief in some form and time in our lives. God is near to the brokenhearted and He wants us to be brave and trust Him through our loss and times of sorrow. In the midst of it all, He wants us to be free from sin, fear, and death. We will discuss what it means to be brave in and through grief and what that may look like in your life. I look forward to sharing my personal experiences in hopes they will help you through your experiences along the way.

Wavewalker: The courage to Trust God in the Difficult Seasons
After being born again as an adult, Krystle has felt called to share the hope found in trusting God, but for her life, this has meant allowing God to lead her through some difficult and painful trials. Yet, despite it all, she has come to see how God’s glory often shines brightest in the darkness and wants to encourage others that no matter the obstacle, it can always be viewed through the hopeful lens of faith.
Krystle and her husband of almost 13 years currently reside in Tyler Texas where they are raising their two beautiful children and rescue dogs. When Krystle isn’t spending time with her family, she can be found writing with a large cup of coffee at her side, building something in her workshop, or baking cookies for strangers.

Living Fearless in a Changing Culture

There are many opportunities for fear to paralyze and prevent us from living out God’s plan for our lives…BUT, God has called us to be fearless to live out our faith in a continuously changing world. In this breakout session, I want to share 3 things with you that will help us be all that God has called us to be.
