LYFE draws strong attendance, sets plans for 2010
Over 750 women attended this year's LYFE conferences at BBC, two special weekends featuring a time of encouragement, refreshment, and learning.
Those who attended in late May enjoyed LYFE Hour speakers Peggy Walker and Christie Lothamer. Rebecca McDonald, president of Women at Risk International, was the featured workshop speaker. Also featured was Jeff Smith of Salt and Light Ministries as guest dramatist and musician.
LYFE stands for Live Your Faith Everyday. Main sessions and workshops centered on the theme: "Invitation to Adventure - What Happens When We Say 'Yes' to God." In addition to LYFE Hours and workshops, ladies enjoyed plenty of fellowship, free time, fitness sessions, and praise time in the Jackson Hall rotunda.
Big plans for 2010
LYFE 2010 will be held May 20-22 and June 3-5. The theme will be "Straight Talk for Real Life." LYFE Hour speakers will be Sherrie Holloway and Lynelle Buchanan.
Ministry leader Ruth Kempton will be a featured workshop speaker. Recording artists Damaris Carbaugh and Michael Faircloth will be featured musicians.

Challenges, opportunities to grow
LYFE is a chance for women to come together to grow and be challenged. In the process, they are able to reconnect with old friends and make new ones.
"I had a great time enjoying the company of my friends and other women here," said Sue Lovett, who attends Calvary Bible Church in Mount Laurel, NJ. It's a fun weekend to get together with the girls."
This year was Sue's eighth LYFE conference. BBC alumna Melanie Dilworth has attended LYFE for six years.
"I love reconnecting with alumnae," Melanie said. "I brought four new ladies this year, and it was exciting to share my past with their present."
LYFE09 extended an invitation for women to experience the adventure God has planned for their lives.
"We tell the ladies that our mission is 'to encourage and equip you to Live Your Faith Everyday (LYFE)'," said Diane Lytle, LYFE Director. "Our conference is unique because we not only encourage you in your Christian walk, but we give you the tools to do so - and those tools are based on the Word of God. LYFE is not a pep rally; it's a Bible conference for women."
