05/07/22: Lisa Harper at GT Church in West Lawn!

If you’ve seen Lisa Harper speak at some of our past Women’s Conferences, you’re gonna love this! Lisa will be at GT Church in West Lawn on May 7th! And even better, tickets are $20 each. Bonus!!!!

You can check out GT’s Facebook Event for all the info, or just go get yourself a ticket! Tickets seem to be first come, first served, so don’t waitt too long to purchase. And since there’s already a few ladies going, be sure to visit the Inspired Sisters Facebook page and let everyone know that you’re going… maybe we can make it dinner and a show. 🙂

See you there!

What’s In the Works For Inspired Sisters?

The connections that we make during the retreat are very important. When we are able to bond with other women, we feel a sense of “belonging” to that group or place where we normally gather. We can know God and make the choice to attend church regularly to grow in our faith, but when we find our “family” there, it can also change our perspective because we belong. And that helps us grow closer in our relationship to Christ as we are able to find commonalities and share our burdens with, and to find strength and connection in our sisters-in-Christ.

What can Inspired Sisters do to help facilitate that in the coming months?


Spring Retreat (most likely in April 2022). Certainly don’t want to ruin a good thing, but maybe just get more of it! Camp Swatara has availability in April of 2022. Prices would be the same as the November weekend.

Monthly Ladies Breakfast: We can meet at a different place each time or the same place on a monthly basis. And if someone wants to host in their home, that’s an option too! We can do a Saturday morning breakfast gathering, or maybe even a Sunday brunch would work better? Let me know what you think!

Marriage Study: “Becoming Mrs. Betterhalf” in January (women only!). You might have heard about this study…it was run as an online Facebook group study by Holly Furtick (wife of Pastor Steven Furtick of Elevation Church) last year. I was able to participate, and I thought it was a really strong and challenging study. It’s not your usual open-the-book-and-share-your-thoughts study. While there is a video session for each, women are encouraged to memorize scripture and share requests and questions with their spouses as homework. During each meeting, women study the Word and process our husbands’ responses. It’s an interactive study that will challenge you to learn how to be “Mrs. Betterhalf” through God’s Word and your husbands’ feedback.

Please take a moment to reply to this email or comment on Facebook for what you would like to participate in. And if there’s nothing listed that works for you, please feel free to suggest something else! <3


P.S. – If you think other ladies would benefit from a study or activity that you also feel you would participate in, remember that YOU are welcome to suggest it and lead it too! I will be glad to support you with encouragement and resources!

2021 Women’s Retreat Re-Cap

Every year has it’s memories and things that made it special, and this year is no different – just take a look at some of the shenanigans below!

You might have thought Women’s Retreats were stuffy and boring, but you’ve never been to one like this. From laughing together until our bellies hurt, to laying hands on a sister with a burden and asking Jesus for healing and breakthrough over her, this retreat is really one of a kind.

This year we opted to view four powerful sermons instead of a session-oriented bible study. Busy moms have sports and other responsibilities, so we thought it would be helpful to make the sessions independent of each other to make it easy for those arriving late or needing to leave early.

After introductions and a one-unique-thing icebreaker, we watched a sermon by Tim Ross, formerly of Gateway Church, from the 2015 Pink Impact conference. It was the perfect sermon to kick-off a weekend – Tim is engaging and quite funny. Check out this clip for yourself…

Anytime you don’t have to cook and clean for yourself is a bonus! And sometimes it even seemed like we just finished eating and it was time for our next meal!

Our next inspiration came from Pastor Shannon Nieman from Abundant Faith Center church in Texas. Her entire sermon on the Proverbs 31 woman went verse by verse and creatively contrasted each between the English Standard Version and the Passion Translation. It’s hard to imagine that any of us can measure up to the standard of the Proverbs 31 woman, but we learned to look at her knowing that we are all equipped to be her already. And how good is our God that he gives us a guideline to work with!

We introduced a new song and style to our worship in “Promises” by Maverick City before taking in a sermon by Sarah Jakes Roberts called “Get Up Girl” – she is a powerhouse! And if you liked “Promises”, check out “Man Of Your Word” and “I Shall Not Want.” Other worshipped songs we were blessed by were “Highlands (Song of Ascent)” by Hillsong, “Goodness of God” by Bethel Music, and “Make Room” by Community Church.

We closed out the weekend with Louie Giglios’ sermon titled, “Don’t Give The Enemy A Seat At Your Table.” And God is so good that even in four independent sermons, he could speak continuity and give each of us what we needed to find in the teachings.

Another big hit this year was the ‘craft’ – and not only because it was fun to do, but because each guest was able to make the craft their own. There were three pre-designed images, yet every shirt created is a variation all it’s own.

Special thanks to the Inspired Sisters team (Amy and Kaitlin), and to Jess who graciously provided her Cricut machine and heat-press for the shirts. (Can anyone say, “guess what’s going on MY christmas list!).
