Session 1: Freedom
Session 2: Glory
Session 3: Transformed
Session 4: Image
Session 5: Unveiling
Single Women, join us for a virtual ladies' night. Grab dinner, chocolate, and paper then dive in with us as we explore, encourage, and express the challenges and blessings of living as a single Christian woman. You'll hear from a variety of voices and backgrounds, but all are voices that live out the Way in daily life. You won't want to miss this.
This evening is designed to offer nuggets instead of fluff. Each session, as you can see, is short. That's intentional. We are working hard to deliver solid Truths in short time intervals so that you have clear takeaways and engagement. We will make sure you have access to the speakers for deeper dives if you'd like to explore more after. We know this won't be comprehensive, but we do pray it provides sustenance and leads to application.
"And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed
into the same image from one degree of glory to another.6 For this comes from the Lord
who is the Spirit."

[in LXX chiefly for H1540 ni., pi.;]
to unveil: metaph. of removing hindrance to perception of spiritual things
Living life as a Christian Single Woman can be isolating, difficult, shameful, and hard. It can also be an incredible blessing and joy. We wanted to take some time to acknowledge the struggle and encourage your faith to keep fighting the good fight. We want to remind you that you are not alone and that there is great purpose to your being. We want to remind you that we are not defined by our status, but by who He says we are.

From her time at Wheaton College onward, Christen spent over 15 years in the service industry…in one form or another. Everything from waiting tables to teaching 4th grade in the inner city to working in non-profit and church ministry to speaking at conferences to spending the summer serving in Kolkata, India, Christen has devoted her life to helping, serving, and caring for others in a variety of settings.
What she kept under wraps for much of that time, however, was a strong business acumen and an affinity for sales and negotiation. In 2018–after a decade of her mother suggesting that she ought to go into real estate—Christen made the transition to the RE industry. She served as the Assistant Team Leader of Keller Williams Urban Dallas for two years, during which she worked hard to obtain her real estate license, spending entire weekends in class. In her role as ATL, she helped to grow the KW Urban office from 150 to 300 agents resulting in the office receiving the award for highest growth and retention in the region in 2019. She trained, coached, and developed new agents and overhauled the productivity coaching program at KWUD, contributing to the rapid success of a number of highly productive DFW agents.

Julianna is one-half of Two Ladies and a Lad. She is a creative wizard and loves bringing joy to the world around her. She spends her days working as a freelance sign language interpreter and serving at her church.
