‘Women in His Image’ to return next month
Shortly after attending a Christian women’s conference in Idaho three years ago, Jeannie Higgins decided to start one in Northwest Colorado.
“I thought, ‘this is something we need in Craig,'” Higgins said about the “Women in His Image” conference in Boise, Idaho.
When she got back to Craig, Higgins teamed with a group of local women from different churches to start an annual conference for Christian women in Northwest Colorado.
“It just blossomed from there with a really great bunch of women,” Higgins said.
The first “Women in His Image” conference was held in Craig in 2003.
The third annual conference is scheduled for Sept. 9 and 10 at First Christian Church.
Higgins said the only differences between this year’s conference and past conferences will be the workshops offered.
Organizers try to change the workshops every year, Higgins said.
This year’s workshops include Christ in the workplace, surviving cancer and taking charge of personal finances.
Higgins said the two-day conference leaves women feeling uplifted and enriched.
“It’s supposed to be just an uplifting weekend for women,” Higgins said. “You walk away feeling like your life has been enriched.”
The conference gives women a chance to come together without having to drive to the Front Range for similar conferences.
“It’s something that’s needed in Craig,” Higgins said.
Higgins said people from Denver and Grand Junction came to the conference last year, as well as women from across Northwest Colorado.
The conference had 138 people last year, up from 124 the year before.
Higgins said the goal this year is to continue growing and, hopefully, have 150 attendees.
Craig native and local real estate agent Sari Cobb will deliver the keynote address at this year’s conference.
Cobb has been speaking through Stonecroft Ministries for the past five years.
Higgins said she chose Cobb because she is a great speaker and has been involved in “Women in His Image” before.
“She did a workshop last year that everybody just loved,” Higgins said.
The conference costs $15 for Sept. 9 only, $30 for Sept. 10 only and $35 for both days if attendees register before Sat–urday. After Saturday, the cost for Sept. 9 is $20, Sept. 10 is $40, and the entire conference is $45.
For teens ages 13 to 17, Sept. 9 costs $10, Sept. 10 costs $15, and the entire conference costs $20.
Lunch will be served Sat–urday.
Higgins said people usually wait until the last minute to sign up, but organizers prefer that they sign up as soon as possible.
