Gather

We believe in the power of community to build us up, spur us on, and hold us accountable. We believe that where two or more are gathered in His name, there He is also. We believe that we are better together, that we need each other.

That is why we come together like this every year. To celebrate all the Lord is doing in and through our community, to bear one another’s burdens, to spur one another on to love and good works, and to speak truth where lies may be hindering intimacy and trust in the Lord.

Seek

Like Mary of Bethany, we have come to know and love spending time in the Lord’s presence above all else. He is our source of rest, strength, guidance, and so much more.

Part of our time together will be spent not only seeking His presence but pracitcally teaching and discussing how to seek Him, and identifying things that help and hurt our ability to seek Him and find Him.

Rest

His presence is where we find true rest. God promises that if we seek Him we will find Him when we seek Him with all of our hearts (Jeremiah 29:13). So when we gather and seek Him, we are also able to enter into true rest with Him.

We have experienced first hand how the weights of fear, anxiety, anger, etc. can stifle spiritual growth and intimacy with the Lord. That is why we are passionate about teaching women how to enter into His rest. We know that He alone holds everything we need to overcome all these things and more. Through surrendering it all to Him, choosing to leave it at his feet and entering into His rest, we have seen Him bring freedom to places where we believed we were still slaves. This will be a big part of our time together this year, and we simply can’t wait to meet with the Lord and see all he wants to unlock in us as we seek true rest in Him.

2019 Speakers

Speakers

Meredith is wife to Josh and mother of four fun and active children- two teenage girls, and twin twelve year-old boys. They have called Aggieland home for the last fourteen years, moving from Houston when their girls were little.

Despite growing up in the church, it wasn’t until her late-twenties that Meredith surrendered her whole heart and life to Jesus, after a long road of brokenness. With a new hunger, she began to study the Bible for herself, moving beyond the stories of Sunday School and understanding for the first time the deep and personal significance of the living word of God. This discovery changed her life. Since then, she has dedicated herself to the study of the Bible and has a passion for teaching women God’s Word and discipling them in how to study and discover truth for themselves.

When she’s not chauffeuring her kids or packing lunches, Meredith serves as the Teaching Director for the BCS Community Bible Study Women’s Day Class- a local inter-denominational Bible Study.

Joan Quintana is a wife, mother and Gigi to her sweet grand babies. She’s been writing, speaking and consulting for 25 years, and is passionate about helping others discover and walk in their true identity in all aspects of their lives. 

 
Raised Jewish, it wasn’t until Joan was in her thirties, after many years of wondering and brokenness, that she began seeking truth. Inspired by what she now recognizes as a great cloud of witnesses, Joan began to see a better way and dug deep into the Word until one day she could no longer deny who she is. She submitted to her Lord and savior Jesus Christ.
 
Today, Joan is happy to spend hours on end studying, reflecting, and praying about the Word. Add a friend and coffee to the mix and she’s in her happy place. Joan contributes to the Modern Day Mary blog, shares microblogs, and teaches at every opportunity. She hopes to encourage others to trust in the truth of God’s Word, rise into their place in His Kingdom, and delight in the love of the Lord.

Chelsea is wife to Kevin and mama to three littles ages 3.5, 2, and 8mo. Life is crazy, loud, and beautiful- and she wouldn’t have it any other way!

In 2017 she founded Modern Day Mary, a ministry birthed out of her own struggle and ultimate victory over dryness in her relationship with the Lord. One of her greatest passions is loving on and encouraging women- seeing them set free from the lies of the enemy to walk in the fullness of life available in Jesus. 

When she’s not serving as a human jungle gym, Chelsea loves to create- from floral arrangements and cakes, to decorating her family home, and planning every thoughtful detail of AOS. She enjoys reading, writing, a good cup of tea, and will never pass up an opportunity to spend quality time with her loved ones! She lives with her family in Houston, TX.
