Kat Silverglate

 Kat Silverglate — Was made by GOD to creatively communicate truth.  She is a frequent conference speaker, retreat coordinator and dramatist.  God transformed her life when she finally realized that the world is filled with a brand of hope that will never deliver what it promises.  No amount of fame, money, food, wine, sex, travel, pedicures, talent, awards, family, good deeds, community service or paying-it-forward will ever satisfy a woman.  Ever!  After years of trying to prove that statement wrong, Kat finally asked the uncomfortable question — why is this so exhausting, depressing, and unsatisfying?  What am I doing wrong?  Is there some truth out there about what we are designed to chase?  Why we were made?  What’s the point?  In the church, Kat found many women who were asking the same questions but often  in secrecy with fear that someone may see behind their pretty Christian I-have-it-all-together facade.  Sadly, many of them felt like they had to pretend right inside the Church.  Eventually, God gathered a group of broken women — the B.A.D. Girls of ECC — and made it safe for them to take off their veils, stop pretending and get real about their lives and their hard questions.  Kat’s life has never been the same, never will be the same, and she will go to her grave talking about the power Jesus has in the life of a hurting woman.  If she could summarize the lesson of the last 10 years in women’s ministry, it would be this — when women get real, women get healed.  Don’t wait until your veil smothers you.  Until your pretend world comes crashing down around you.  Come in the middle of your story and watch GOD speak into your life right where you are.  We are...

Kris Rivera

Kris Rivera — also known as “Girl Friday”, as we love to refer to her, has been the administrative “genius” behind our retreats. She has been involved in everything from finding the retreat center to handling the money to sending reminders to coordianting the food to making a million small deetails happen that only GOD can separate from the beauty that you experience this weekend. Kris keeps the trains moving on time, is one of the best boundary setters we’ve ever met and is not afraid to speak truth in love to her sisters who don’t have the same administrative gifts. We adore you, Kris! You can reach Kris at...

Laura K. Dahne

Laura K. Dahne loves being a part of women’s ministry that promotes Jesus, Inner-healing and Teaching!  She believes these three essential ingredients are best when blended with laughter and worship.  Her passion for inner-healing was the impetus for her first book, “The Master Gardener,” a book that ministers to women in the deepest places of their garden-hearts and confronts them with a dose of humorous truth. Laura feels free to get into women’s ’emotional and spiritual junk’ because she knows that ‘it takes one to know one’ and because she knows that truth sets women free!  Her motto is, “When women get real, women get healed!” To contact Laura, vist her at www.LauraDahne.com....

Ana Adler

“I have to turn to these truths every day. I have victory and then I find myself needing to repent again.  I am growing, just like you, in my walk of sanctification.” Ana Adler has been teaching a women’s small group at Everglades Community Church for more than ten years. She loves on each woman personally. Through laughter, being real and sharing her own personal journey with Jesus Christ, many women have experienced real healing.  You’ll be amazed how Ana can tell a story that will engage you, teach you, and take you to the feet of Jesus Christ. Visit Ana’s Bible Study Group at www.AnaBibleStudy.Jimdo.com. Ana’s love for women and for their marriages is a gift from God that she delights in sharing with other women.  Her favorite Bible verse is 1 Corinthians 10:31— “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” She has learned through her journey with God that in all things we do, think, say, eat, drink, and such, we need to honor and glorify God. Ana’s first speaking engagement was at last year’s retreat. She spoke about “cutting it out” — or cutting away our sins — Confess. Submit. Trust. Expect God to answer. We look forward to what God is giving Ana this year. You can reach Ana at...
