Westwood Church to host ladies’ conference May 18-19

Westwood Church is hosting ‘The King’s Daughters Conference’ on May 18-19 to celebrate women and their value and importance in God’s kingdom.

“We’re just interested in inviting the women of the community to come join us,” Kim Shaw said. Shaw and her husband, Steve, are executive pastors of Westwood Church.

Shaw said the women who will be speaking understand that women have busy schedules, so the Friday night services will begin with a mixer at 7 p.m. and a service at 7:30 p.m. On Saturday, the conference will begin at 9 a.m. and culminate with a catered lunch at noon.

The conference will feature special praise and worship. A $20 fee will include a syllabus, gift bag, lunch and two lectures.

Shaw, along with three other church members, will speak.

The conference in Lubbock was inspired by a conference the women attended in Dallas, as well as the book, ‘The King’s Daughters: Becoming the Woman God Created You to Be’ by Diana Hagee.

Krista Jones said she will speak about how to achieve the dreams that God has put on each woman’s heart by using talents and setting goals.

Cindy Clark said she will speak about the Holy Spirit within.

“I’m just going to talk about the Holy Spirit and what it means to you as a King’s Daughter,” Clark said. Women can be advocates, she said, and often don’t realize how awesome the Holy Spirit is.

Another speaker, Karel Pittman, said she will be speaking on not being ashamed of the Gospel. Some people, she said, are ashamed of Christianity.

“Jesus can be shared anywhere and everywhere, whether it’s a taboo or not,” Pittman said. People see Jesus through Christians, she said, and each Christian woman needs to be “a walking Jesus.”
