What a beautiful weekend! Our #UnfadingRoyalty conference in North Carolina was breathtaking. We watched in wonderment as the vision unfolded, and God revealed the glorious splendor of His Majesty!
He brought every girl, woman, and teen to a deeper revelation and understanding of who they are as His Royal daughters!
Check out some of the pics and videos below!
IMAGINE a weekend where girls ages 8+, teens, and women all join together to rediscover their royal identity in Christ!
Friday night was filled with wide eyes of wonderment. Little girls twirled around the altar and waved colorful flags while they worshiped and danced with their Heavenly Daddy.
Teens attended a "Girl Talk" session with Becoming Esther Ministries from California, and discussed things like "Boys, Beauty and Ball Gowns!"
Women of all ages were greatly blessed by the message and ministry of Brenda Esteves, when she talked about being "Crushed for Recreation."
Our founder and editor, Livy Lynn, sang several of her original "Princess Songs", before a special guest appearance from Cinderella.
Even though the little girls were especially thrilled with Cinderella's special appearance, everyone could relate to the story she told. "The girl by the ashes" talked about feeling unbeautiful, unworthy and unloved, thanks to her evil step mom and step sisters...and others on our team had similar stories. Natalie S talked about an abusive situation that made her feel like a girl in the ashes, Melody shared the struggles she used to have when she looked into the mirror, Ashley Rae talked about a dark time in her life when she used to hurt herself, and Julia W shared truths about waiting for your true prince charming.
On Saturday morning, Anna and Elsa made a surprise appearance, and little ones loved learning several "Princess Principles" from them. One little girl was especially excited about a principle she learned:
"Mirror Mirror on the wall, you don't know what you're talking about at all!"
They gasped and "oohhhh"-ed and "ahhh"-ed in the Princess Tea Party Room, as they dined with Anna and Elsa themselves!
The girls fully responded to the truth of who they are in Christ. For them, the concept of being royalty is not foreign and far-fetched. The King is their Daddy, and they are princesses. They simply believed. No doubt. No questions. Just pure, childlike faith.
"Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it." - Mark 10:15
The women were greatly blessed by Danielle R's powerful message about being a Princess Warrior, and their hearts were awakened to the horrors of human trafficking, shared by Alli M, and were motivated to take royal actions of justice!
Ashley Rae led the group in worship, and everyone experienced many breakthroughs in their hearts.
Deanna Bridges shared the importance of remaining in the Word, and letting His Seed go deep into our hearts.
The teens were blessed by the messages shared from Becoming Esther Ministries. Both Kenya and Melody had powerful words of hope to bring. Kenya talked about Cinderella, and how she still had a glass slipper of hope. Melody shared what the Lord has shown her about the miracle of watching wastelands and deserts in our hearts turn into a glorious garden of glory for the King!
Needless to say, we had a spectacularly royal weekend in the King's presence!
