The Birth of REALmoms
The REALmoms Conference was formed in the hearts of moms just like you who are passionate about the high calling of motherhood. In March of 2013, three moms from Crestwood Baptist Church in Crestwood, Kentucky (Angela, Kelly and Lora) traveled 5 hours from their families to attend a conference for moms. Although they tried to gather many more moms, they were the only ones who could actually make the trip.
Upon arriving at the conference these three moms were excited about how much information they were receiving. They felt like they would be better equipped to handle the challenges of motherhood. Their hearts were broken that so many women at home were missing this opportunity.
Slowly throughout the weekend God separately laid it on their hearts to bring a moms conference to their area. It wasn’t until they openly shared this calling with each other that they realized The Lord was truly at work. From that moment on they were students of the conference and tried to soak it all in so they could share a similar experience with their friends and family in Kentucky.
After returning home they got straight to work and asked God to guide them all the way. From creating the name of the conference to finding the speakers, REALmoms has been saturated in prayer!
Their desire is to let moms be:
Renewed – through a little time away,
Equipped – by informative speakers and sessions,
Authentic – in an atmosphere where moms can open up
Loved – by other moms and most importantly by God!
The Lord has done things that could never have been expected through this conference for moms, just like His Word says, “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,” (Ephesians 3:20 NKJV).
The REALmoms team truly learned that if God calls you to it, He will lead you through it! God is so good and the three moms He chose to call are humbled and honored to follow His lead.
Since then, the REALmoms has transitioned to be REAL ladies – check out the events at CrestwoodBaptist.org/ministries/women. The 2017 event, Closer, is September 9.
