She will present a program entitled, Listening to Life: Learning to hear the words oflove God whispers into our lives.Sally explains, “There are many voices which speak to us in our lives. Most of them seem to come with some sort of expectation about who we should be as Christian women. Many of us can be burdened by these expectations, never feeling as though we ever quite meet the demands of our varying roles. But there is one Voice who whispers to us about who we truly are. His voice does not demand, but brings life and love, forgiveness, and gratitude. Once we begin to hear His voice beyond the cacophony of all the others, we discover that God’s grace is all around us . . . His life and ours woven together in an intricate, exquisite tapestry . . . our life, shimmering with His radiant threads of grace.”
