WHAT IS WOMEN OF INFLUENCE?
In 2012 a group of fantastic women gathered together and asked God the big question. “How can You use me to touch lives and influence others for the Kingdom?” That honest question began to grow in the hearts and lives of so many more women. In a matter of just a few years God has done more than any of us could ever imagine.
From our Evening Empowerment Meetings, Appreciation Luncheons, Annual Women’s Conferences, and International Partnerships Women of Influence is touching lives around the globe. Our personal and corporate influence has grown outside the four walls of our initial meeting place. Today women from all over have joined the movement and together we say, “We are Women of Influence”.
WHO ARE WOMEN OF INFLUENCE?
We are women just like you—passionate, real, raw, and at times in need of a friend. We are here to encourage, equip, and educate women to become all God created them to be. I hope you feel encouraged and inspired by the truth. You are special. You my friends are … Women of Influence.
WHY WOMEN OF INFLUENCE?
I’ll never forget the day my life took a radical change upward. I was having coffee with a good friend when she looked me square in the eyes and said, “Do you know what you are?” A little afraid to answer the question I responded, “No, but I think you’re going to tell me.” Her answer forever changed my life.
“A LIFE COACH…that’s what you are.” Being unfamiliar with the term I asked her what that even meant. She replied, “A champion of others, a trainer, leader and guide.” I wasn’t 100% convinced that I agreed with her but I wanted to give it a try. The next week I enrolled in a three-year process of becoming a Life Coach. I have come a long way since that conversation in the early 90’s, but my passion has not changed. My desire to empower, equip, and educate women has become my greatest goal. We all have spheres of influence and helping women discover, define, and develop their purpose is what has led me to starting the movement called Women of Influence.
Women of Influence was birthed in 2012 with a handful of amazing ladies in Southern California. The movement grew as more and more women gathered together and began to understand their personal worth and identity in Christ. Now hundreds of others are part of WOI and the ministry is changing lives around the world.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
