LYFE women's conferences offer fellowship, growth
Two special weekend conferences for women this summer at BBC are set to offer fellowship, encouragement, and opportunities for personal growth.
"Simply Living: It's More" is the theme for the 2013 LYFE Women's Conference. The event returns this year to the format of two available weekends, with the first set for May 30 - June 1 and the second running June 6-8.
The conference, held every summer, inspires women through focused workshops, moving worship times, and powerful speakers.

Other aspects of the weekends include:
-An elegant Friday evening banquet.
-The sale of unique LYFE t-shirts, clothing, and other gifts.
-A special time of singing with Sherrie Holloway in the Jackson Hall Rotunda.
"We come to LYFE because the fellowship is wonderful and we love the speakers," said Sharman Frisino of Albany, NY. "Everything is very uplifting and it is very well organized."
Proceeds from the sale of LYFE merchandise benefits the LYFE Scholarship fund and builds into the lives of BBC students.
The LYFE Scholarship began at the request of attendees who wanted to show their appreciation to BBC. Scholarships are awarded each April. The funds assist female BBC students with a commitment to full-time career ministry.
"This means the world to me - it means that I can continue to be here at BBC," said junior Counseling major Kira Chambers. "I can continue to stretch myself, continue to hear from God and what He wants from me, and mature spiritually, mentally, and emotionally."
