Speak Truth in Your Heart Conference at the Ark Encounter

Join us at the ark encounter!

Many girls try to change their wrong actions, but never learn to discern the wrong thinking behind the actions. As girls replace lies with the truth, they will see how God’s Word will transform each area of their lives as the truth sets them free!

Sarah will include many stories, illustrations and practical tips as she discusses topics such as a girl’s emotions, purity, who God is, and a proper view of who we are in light of the truths of Scripture.

Bright Lights continues to train leaders, host mother / daughter conferences, and provide discipleship materials for young ladies.
