Becoming conference 2017: Event review and Lessons
Becoming conference 2017 was a life changer for me. For one, I was able to relate to many of the stories told and was therefore able to put myself in that spot where I could easily, without stress, glean from the wonderful women who spoke. Funto Ibuoye is a rare gem; The Beautified Network is such a great initiative.
I am happy that we are not just having the customary women’s gathering that we see everywhere with all of the paparazzi and stuff. This one is one of impact and enlightenment, spiritual and necessary.
That I could not find my name on the Master list on arrival (this particular thing has made me leave an event I registered for, it got to me as I passed for someone begging for a free pass at their stand) and the event started an hour and fifteen minutes later than expected were all tactics of the devil to put me off. O my, I was put off. Lord help my meticulous nature in Jesus’ name, Amen.
The praise and worship kicked off and everything changed. All I needed to connect was available and I worshiped from everything within me. Actually, kudos to the worship team, they picked the right songs.
And then, the speakers began. #whew. I really can’t start a description of my experience on hearing and digesting each speaker so, I’ll just give a summary.
What I want to do now is give a roundup of the lessons I picked. I actually did a live tweet session at the event so all I have to do is compile them here and help you have a glimpse.
