Speaker: Cara Croft

Cara Croft is the Women's Ministry Director for Practical Shepherding.

"As a wife to a senior pastor (who has also been an associate pastor, youth pastor and music pastor) for over 20 years, I understand some of the pressure and challenges that accompany ministry work. In speaking at conferences, I am finding women connecting with my own struggles that I share and needing someone with whom to talk. My desire is to give an opportunity for you to share and have someone hear you.

"I am currently working on my master’s degree also in counseling. I enjoy being a student. I am also a mom to 4 children (1 son and 3 daughters) who are quickly becoming adults and on the verge of leaving the nest. I enjoy teaching, speaking, learning and walking beside others who are struggling. I love photography, being outside, music, drinking coffee, and reading (both fiction and nonfiction). I look forward to serving you and walking with you as we strive to be faithful servants of God."

Join this conference to learn the cycle of conflict. We will study how it begins, develops, and how it has the potential to become a lifelong way of life. Many of us either avoid conflict completely or we choose to become angry and combatant. Neither of these behaviors are healthy. As Barney used to say:  We will learn how to “nip it in the bud”.  Conflict exists in all our lives and we can learn healthy and God honoring way of moving through it.  Join me.

Shelley Robinson, Retired

Each of us has experienced rejection. At times, the feelings which result hold us hostage and cause us to feel unable to move forward. Join us as we realized Biblical truths about these powerful responses and find ways of escaping their holds on our thoughts and emotions.

Come and see how you can be a smart, savvy, scriptural social media user!
