Finding Time for Our Hair & Skin

Physical Health is not only about our calorie intake. It is the care of our whole body!
Beautifully and wonderfully made – you are the perfect creation. Let’s be the best stewards of our entire body as we walk this journey with Jesus.

Hair Health Focus:
◼️ Invest in healthy and rewarding products for your hair || Your shampoo & conditioner can make or break your hair but don’t have to break the bank. Small trick to finding the best : stay away from lots of chemicals and fragrances and stick to the ingredients you can pronounce.
◼️ Take a supplement that encourages hair health || We recommend Vitamin B or Biotin which can also be consumed through eating whole grains, seafood and dark leafy greens.
◼️ Dress it up & Dress it down || Find a new hairstyle that you can do. Don’t get us started on how this boosts your mental health too! On the flipside – Choose a day of the week or an evening to let the conditioner soak for a few hours then go natural.

Skin Health Focus:
◼️ Find a routine that works for you || There are so many facials and products – how could you ever find the right one?! Start with washing your face daily and applying a small dab of sunscreen – then go from there. Your skin will let you know what it needs!
◼️ What we put in – will show it’s face || If your skin is on the struggle bus – check your diet. We once had to make a food journal to realize what was causing inflammation and breakouts!
◼️ Appreciate the journey || Every season of life presents a new story. Our skin breaks out during our teen years or even our mid-thirties (40s, 50s…) and then there are days when we have “princess skin” (or it’s the best we have ever seen it). We have aging signs and full on aging. We have sun spots and scars. All of us have skin stories. Take time to glance in the mirror at your fearfully and wonderfully created journey and appreciate the creation

January Health Focus

This month we are excited for a health reset.
We welcome 2021 and want to begin by concentrating our focus on the Physical, Mental, Spiritual and Emotional Health of our bodies. Our pursuit is to see MO Ladies and beyond recognize our minds and bodies as living temples belonging and devoted to the Lord.

Ladies Conference 2019 Report

The annual Missouri District Ladies Conference was held at the Springfield Expo Center in Springfield, Missouri on April 25-27, 2019.   The theme was Journey – Looking for a City.   

Kathy Hernandez was our evening speaker.   She shared her heart, worshipped in song as she played the saxophone, and prayed with people in the altar to receive their healing, and receive the Holy Ghost.  Melinda Poitras was our day speaker.   She had a beautiful way of sharing her message with humor and wit.   Although it was her first time to speak to a Missouri Ladies Conference, she made an immediate connection with the ladies that made them anxious to listen to what she had to say.

Shauna Hord, and a group of ladies from across the state, led us into worship in each service.  Her choice of songs made it easy to join in and sing.  Her anointed leading ushered us into the presence of the Lord.

On Friday night we celebrated the churches who had given to Mothers Memorial last year and challenged the ladies to help us to reach our 2019 goal of $119,000.00.   We raised $9,852.09 in the offering that night.    

Saturday’s brunch was a change in our usual format, but it was a wonderful time of fellowship.   Michelle Hopper and her team had it beautifully decorated and the ladies enjoyed the elegant atmosphere as they savored their breakfast meal.  An abundance of prizes with the journey theme were given away including watches, purses, and home décor.  

A fun touch to this year’s event was the golf cart shuttle service with their “Taxi Cab” signs.   Several men volunteered their time to be the drivers of the two rented golf carts that shuttled the ladies from the hotel and parking areas to the Expo entrance.    

Next year’s Ladies Conference “In His Image” will be held on April 23-25, 2020.  The special speakers will be Janet Trout and Lisa Doughty.
