Speak Truth in Your Heart Conference at the Ark Encounter

February 24-25, 2023

For: Mothers and Daughters (ages 11-22+)

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.


  • Biblical, practical sessions
  • Humorous skits to help girls apply truth in every-day life
  • A chalk drawing presentation
  • Harp music and singing
  • Testimonies from Bright Lights staff
  • Time to enjoy the Ark Encounter
  • Godly examples of young women who are living for Christ
