LYFE Women's Conference 2021

Incomplete...and That's Ok!

May 28–29, 2021

Sometimes we all feel like we fall short. We pretend to be something we’re not. We put our best faces on social media so the world will never know. But, what if we were never meant to be complete on our own? The truth is, God made us to need Him. When we acknowledge we are incomplete in ourselves, we will find our need met in Jesus. Then, we can truly live the full life God has promised us. 

At LYFE 2021, you’ll learn about this important theme through keynote sessions, worship times and breakout sessions. Join us!

Keynote Speaker: Sheila Walsh

She loves making the Bible practical and sharing her own story of how God met her when she was at her lowest point and lifted her up again. She has sold more than 5 million books including her 2018 release “It’s okay not to be ok, moving forward one day at a time.” She is also the co-host of the television program Life Today and loves to support missions through the Life Today ministry, working worldwide to feed the hungry, give water to the thirsty, provide medical help to the sick, and rescue boys and girls from sex slavery.

Special Guest: Ginny Owens

She’s appeared in films and television shows, co-authored “Transcending Mysteries: Who Is God and What Does He Want From Us,” blogs at ginnyowens.com, is the creator of the “How I See It” video series and has served as an adjunct professor in the songwriting department at Belmont University.

Olive Afeno LYFE Workshop speakerAsk a Question, Save a Life

Olive Aneno

Suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the United States. And yet such death is preventable. What would you do if a loved one disclosed they were suicidal? What would you say? How can you encourage them? Suicide is a very hard topic to talk about. This session will walk you through a step-by-step process on how to identify warning signs and encourage someone struggling with suicide.

Joanna Arp LYFE Breakout Session SpeakerHis Priceless Presence

Joanna Arp

Where is God in the midst of my pain? Where is God in the midst of my joy? Where is God when my family is in pain? Where is God when I feel lost and alone? Does He even care that I am not OK? Come study Psalm 139 and be instructed and comforted to know that God is with you in your pain, your joy, your family’s pain, and when you feel lost and alone. Come discover why this is true! 

Sherry Boykin LYFE Breakout Session SpeakerStrongholds, Weakholds, and 3 Things You Thought God Would Never, Ever Do

Sherry Boykin
sherryboykin.com

Just when you think your life is hard enough, you come to a bend in the road that complicates everything. You can’t imagine ever getting over it—until now. Let’s jump into Hagar’s riveting story and uncover three frightening ways God conquers strongholds and why you’ll be glad He does.

Lynelle Buchanan LYFE Breakout Session SpeakerHaving Better Relationships

Lynelle Buchanan

Relationships are a critical part of our faith and wellbeing, yet sometimes they are HARD. Have you ever wondered how to make it better? In this session, we will explore biblical truth and practical steps for creating connections, deepening bonds, resolving conflicts, and restoring broken relationships.  

Ken and Sharon Gardoski LYFE Breakout Session SpeakersIncomplete Means Room to Grow in My Marriage

Ken & Sharon Gardoski

We are all incomplete in our journey to be like Jesus. But that’s OK because incomplete means there is room to grow. God wants our marriage to flourish and His Word shows us the way. Come and search the Scriptures with us to find room to grow in your marriage!

Emily Gehman LYFE Breakout Session SpeakerYour Stories Matter

Emily Gehman
emilygehman.com

The Bible is full of stories of people being people and God being God. So is your life—and you’re called to tell those stories of God’s faithfulness so the next generation will know who God is and what He does. Your stories matter, so don’t stop telling them. (Hint: It’s easier—and more powerful—than you think.)

Julie Henning LYFE Breakout Session SpeakerA Rose in a Ditch

Julie Henning

When God sent me back to Korea to present the Pearl S. Buck Woman of the Year award (since I was raised as her daughter) to South Korean president‘s wife, God revealed so much of my past I did not know. God in His grace writes His story through each of us. As you hear my story you can reflect upon God‘s grace in your own life as you grow in Him.

Sherrie Holloway LYFE Breakout Session SpeakerLive it Out!

Sherrie Holloway
wellspringoverflow.com

Each of us has one thing in common: we are living! But how is it some seem to live above their hardships while others are driven by the feelings their circumstances create inside of them? Peter can help us know how to truly live no matter what our circumstances are screaming at us. Join me as we look at the three things we need to get right in order to live our faith out every day.

Jenny Johnson LYFE Breakout Session SpeakerI’m so OVER this…OVER-worked, OVER-committed, and OVERwhelmed

Jenny Johnson

Jesus told Martha that Mary “has chosen the better thing” by sitting at His feet while Martha served her guests; but what would Jesus have said to Martha if she had screaming toddlers needing lunch or if it was her turn for carpool pickup? This breakout session is designed to help you look closely at your busy schedule, discern distractions from responsibilities, and find contentment in your busy season of life.

Anita Keagy LYFE Breakout Session SpeakerThe JOY of Seeking God First

Anita Keagy
www.joyshop.org

“But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord…” (1 Peter 3:15) How can we possibly set our hearts apart for Christ when we struggle to set apart 20 minutes a day to cultivate intimacy with Jesus? This session will motivate and equip you to overcome the daily obstacles we all encounter and send you home with a plan to put into action right away! A free workbook/journal is provided for this session.

Bonnie McCall LYFE Breakout Session SpeakerIncomplete BUT Completely IN! (for the pastor’s wife)

Bonnie McCall

We know we aren’t perfect. In fact, our struggles and failures are all too apparent to us as we walk through each day. As pastors’ wives we can feel that even more heavily because it seems like everyone is watching us, especially noticing our failures. In a world where comparison and judgment fuel discouragement, let’s spend some time focusing on how we can live life to the complete fullness that God wants for us. 

Don McCall LYFE Breakout Session SpeakerDon’t get Caught Napping with Generation Zzzzz

Don McCall

This generation (2001-2018) of young people are the most social, the most empowered, and also the most troubled youth in human history. Let me introduce you to the nine challenges we face in effectively connecting with them. We will be reviewing the book Generation Z Unfiltered.

Deb Montgomery LYFE Breakout Session SpeakerChristian Caregiving: The Journey—The Joys

Deb Montgomery

Over 43 million Americans provide unpaid care for a loved one who has a disability or chronic illness. Most of these caregivers are women, some caring for both a child and a parent! Join us as we consider the unique challenges and blessings of our Christian caregiving journey. Together we will renew our strength as we consider the purposes of our faithful and loving God. 

Terry Perrine LYFE Breakout Session SpeakerIdentity Theft—Are you Living in Light of Who you Are?

Terry Perrine

We claim a number of different titles—wife, mother, employee, and caretaker to name a few. But all too often we define ourselves by other titles too:  titles like broken, scared, shameful, and hurt. Don’t be a victim of identity theft! Together we will study Scripture and answer three questions: Who am I? Whose am I? How should I live in light of this truth? You will leave with practical tools to help make these truths a day-to-day reality in your life. Come grow together and learn how to avoid identity theft!

Candace Richards LYFE Breakout Session SpeakerIron Sharpens Iron—Yes, but How?

Candice Richards

Jesus left us a clear command: ”Go ye therefore and make disciples” (Matthew 28:19). Does that command intimidate you? Have you ever felt inadequate to the task of making disciples for Christ? Join us as we discuss how extra-ordinarily ordinary people like you and me can impact individuals, families, and even nations for Jesus by following a simple biblical pathway. Be the sharpest tool that you can be in the Master’s hands!

Jeannie Vogel LYFE Breakout Session SpeakerEngage: Learning From Jesus How to Impact Your World

Jeannie Vogel

Connecting with people who don’t share our worldview can be difficult, yet Jesus masterfully befriended diverse groups. His companions included immoral women, unclean outcasts, and social misfits. (You know, the ones that appear on our prayer list but not at our dinner table.) He reached out to them despite their moral, religious, or social standing. Join me in learning how Jesus engaged people in His world because we can’t have impact if we don’t have contact.   

Jennifer Wyman LYFE Breakout Session SpeakerSearching for JOY in the Seasons of Life: Hormones and Fatigue

Jennifer Wyman

How do I get past surviving the changes and stages of life with grace? How can I find trustworthy information on health? Do I suffer well? How can I support my sisters and find support in this journey? What blessings can I expect in these seasons?

You also need to use your group leader’s first and last name when registering so that your group can be housed together and seated together at the banquet. NOTE: You will need to contact your group leader once you have registered so that she knows you have joined her group.

Q: What is a Group Leader?

A Group Leader is the contact person for any group of ladies, no matter the size. The Group Leader’s name and Group/Church name and city/state  is used in the registration process to help identify members of a group that want to be housed together and to answer any questions that arise. Every GROUP needs a Group Leader.

LYFE attendees can register as an individual or as a member of a group/church. If you want to be housed with a friend, choose which one of you will be the leader, register, and give the Group Name and group city/state to your friend. Be sure to use your name as the group leader in order to be housed together and seated together at the banquet.

Q: What if I don’t have an email address?

If you do not have an email address, you may register by using this email address: lyfe@ClarksSummitU.edu. However, we do communicate important information to our LYFE attendees, so it is beneficial if you have an email address so that you can receive added information.

You will be housed with another woman in a dorm room with two twin beds per room. Each suite of three rooms shares a bathroom. 

Q: May I have a private room on campus?

All rooms are double occupancy.

Dress is casual for most of the conference, but many women decide to dress up for the Friday night dinner. Wear comfortable shoes since you will be walking between buildings to attend breakout sessions, meals and other sessions.

All of our delicious meals are served in the campus Dining Hall.

1. Receive a refund of the registration fee less a $50.00 cancellation fee.
2. Send a substitute in your place. (Please provide the substitute’s first and last name, mailing address, e-mail address and phone number.)
3. Transfer your registration fee to LYFE 2021.

If your registration is cancelled after the deadline, no refund will be given.

Q: How do we register for LYFE Women’s Conference?

Registration is handled completely online to provide faster service and better accuracy. Just click on the registration link on the LYFE page and follow the directions.

Q: Can I register my whole group at once?

Yes, we have streamlined online registration to make group registration easier. Just follow the directions for Group Leaders by registering yourself; then keep adding more registrations until you have registered everyone in your group. You will only need to enter the information about your group once.

Q: Can I add more to my group later?

Yes, you can return to our website at another time to register someone else by using your Group Leader name and Group/Church name, city and state.

Q: Can my ladies register online themselves?

Yes, the ladies in your group can register themselves, but you MUST register yourself first so that you can give them your Group Leader name and Group/Church name, city and state. That is how we will know that they are part of your group, and we can house you together and seat you together at the banquet.

Q: What is the advantage of my ladies registering themselves?

Each woman can make her own full payment (check or credit card) without giving out her personal financial information.

Q: What are the disadvantages of registering everyone myself?

You will need to gather everyone’s personal information (including their email address) and collect all the registration fees, paying for everyone at once with your check or credit/debit card.

Q: How will I know which ladies have registered for my group?

You will need to communicate to the ladies in your church/group. Each lady will be responsible to notify you when they have registered. They can forward their confirmation email that they receive upon their registration submission or reach out to you in another manner that you set up. Please be sure to provide your ladies with your Group Leader name and your Group/Church name, city and state that they will need to use when they register. This helps us so that we can be sure to keep your group together when arranging housing and banquet seating.

Q: What if some of my ladies don’t have an email address?

If someone does not have an email address, you may register by using this email address for her: (LYFE@ClarksSummitU.edu). Please note: if possible, we request that each individual use her own email address so that she will receive the LYFE Conference email updates that are sent out to conference attendees.

Q: How do we pay for the LYFE Conference?

During the registration process, you may select check or credit card (MasterCard, Visa, American Express or Discover). Once the full payment is processed and approved, your registration will be complete.

Q: When will our places be reserved?

If you pay with a credit card, your place will usually be reserved immediately. If you pay by check, we will wait until your check has been received and cleared before reserving your place, so please send checks immediately after you register.

Q: Can you guarantee space for all of us at the LYFE Conference?

Space is limited, so please encourage your ladies to register as soon as possible. Due to the high volume of registrations, we are unable to offer a waiting list for on-campus housing. Convenient area hotels are available and some offer a CSU/LYFE discount. Refer to our LYFE web page for information.

Q: Do we have to stay on campus?

No, you are not required to stay on campus. We have divided the fee on the registration site so that you may choose to stay on campus or not. A list of area hotels that are offering a LYFE discount is available on the LYFE web page.

Q: If we stay on campus, what are the rooms like?

You will be housed in our residence halls. Each room has two twin beds per room. Each suite of three rooms shares a bathroom. If you have an odd number of ladies, one will be housed with a member of another odd-numbered group. If you would rather have that person housed with the rest of your group, please notify the LYFE Registrar (LYFE@ClarksSummitU.edu), and we may be able to place an extra mattress in one of your rooms.

Q: When do I need to let you know if we would like three in a room?

Please let the LYFE Registrar (LYFE@ClarksSummitU.edu) know at least one month in advance if you would like three in a room. 

Q: What is the best way to contact the LYFE Registrar if I have questions?

The fastest way to contact the LYFE Registrar is through email (LYFE@ClarksSummitU.edu). If you do not have email access or prefer phone calls, you can contact her at 570.585.9198.

LYFE Scholarship

The LYFE Scholarship helps many of CSU’s women students who work very hard to finance their education at Clarks Summit University by themselves. It can be a great “load lifter” to award them a scholarship.

Several years ago the LYFE Scholarship began at the request of LYFE attendees who wanted to show their appreciation to Clarks Summit University. Thus, a scholarship fund was set up to be used in assisting students to be Christ-centered, career-ready CSU graduates.

Most of the money is raised through product sales at the LYFE Store, but some women also give extra gifts towards the fund.

Watch the video testimonies of four of the students who received the 2019 LYFE scholarship and see how the dollars raised are affecting lives.

Important News about LYFE 2020

Because of our love for you LYFE ladies and our greater community, we want to do our part to limit the spread of COVID-19. This means we will not be inviting you to campus as planned for the LYFE Women’s Conference 2020. However, we’re now excited to offer you two things!

First, the entire LYFE conference will be moved to 2021, including keynote speaker Sheila Walsh and award-winning artist Ginny Owens! Those of you who had registered for this year’s conference are now already registered for 2021, and you don’t have to do a thing (this includes any housing reservations!)!

Secondly, On May 30, 2020, we’re planning to launch the first-ever LYFE live simulcast! Find more details about this free digital event below.

We love you LYFE ladies! We love getting together with you and spending an entire weekend in fellowship and encouragement on the beautiful CSU campus. Today, that same love for you motivates a decision we have been wrestling with for weeks. Because of the global pandemic of COVID-19, we are not able to invite you to come to campus for a full, in-person conference in May 2020 as we had originally planned. Our desire for your health and safety takes precedence over our wish to see you in person at this unique time.
 
We understand how the LYFE Women’s Conference is the highlight of the year for so many of you. The solid teaching from God’s Word. The uninterrupted girl time with close friends and sisters in Christ. The chance to take a breath, relax and learn, so you get the boost you need to live passionately for Christ in your everyday life. The laughter and unity created through a powerful event like this. We get it—there is so much at LYFE to love! 
 
That’s why we have some exciting news for you! We aren’t simply cancelling. We are thrilled to announce that we are rolling over the entire LYFE conference to May 28–29, 2021. You won’t miss out on hearing from author and global speaker Sheila Walsh! You’ll still get to worship with Dove-award-winning performer Ginny Owens! Over a dozen breakout sessions (that we are so excited about!) will be offered. It’s all just happening a year later than we had originally anticipated.
 
The best part is, you’re all set to attend! You don’t need to do a thing. Everyone who has already registered for LYFE 2020 will now enjoy that same registration for 2021. No re-registration required, no hoping you’ll get on-campus housing. If you were one of the ladies who had reserved the limited, on-campus housing already, that space is still reserved for you. The waiting list for housing is still intact, too. Plus, you’re getting into the 2021 conference at the 2020 rate, which is a savings for you! 
 
The second announcement we’re thrilled to share is something you won’t have to wait a whole year for. Since you had made plans to join us on May 30 anyway, we’d love to give you some spiritual encouragement from God’s Word—even if we can’t meet in person. As a gift to you and to any guests you wish to invite, you’ll get to join the first-ever live simulcast of LYFE 2020! In this livestream event, you can join us digitally to hear three sessions from some of our all-time-favorite LYFE speakers: Sherrie Holloway, Joanna Arp and Sherry Boykin. LYFE group leaders, you will also get tools to help facilitate discussion and growth with your own ladies. For LYFE, this mini-conference simulcast is something that we have never done before, and we’re praying God will use it as a blessing to you and your friends! 
 
The theme for this free simulcast version of LYFE will be “I AM.” At a time when circumstances feel more uncertain than ever, we will direct our focus on the One who is constant and caring. When we choose to look on the character of Christ, we can be confident in our great I AM. When God refers to Himself as I AM, He reminds the heroes of faith that only He is eternal, not bound by time and circumstance, unchanging. That same I AM is ever present right now, exactly where you are, and the great I AM is already the God of our future and our hope.
 
LYFE 2020 will not be the gathering of 1,000 ladies together in one place like we had planned. Instead, God is allowing LYFE 2020 to reach tens of thousands of ladies around the globe through this virtual, live simulcast format with the message of the great I AM. It’s not what we had envisioned a few short weeks ago, but it is something to praise God for and to ask that He bless it in spreading His love far and wide to our sisters in Christ around the world.
 
We look forward to learning with you in this brand-new format for LYFE 2020. And when we see you in person for LYFE 2021—what a celebration that will be!
 
Yours for LYFE,
 
Diane Lytle
LYFE Women’s Conference Director
