The WOMEN'S EMPOWERMENT HOURoffers Christian leaders a practical, interactive and scripturally based program designed to help exhort the gifts of power and love within women. God's daughters are equipped to bring life to a shattered world. However, we are so often overwhelmed by the pain of our past, responsibilities of the present and fears of our future that we never reach God's complete purpose for our existence.This Program establishes a forum to address most of the issues and concerns impacting a woman's personal and professional life. Through interactive sharing and the use of current resources, positive options and resolutions are uncovered. Participants experience a self-actualizing energy, which enables them to obtain desired changes. A major success of this program is the long-term establishment of a network of relationships, knowledge and resources that support and strengthen the women who have participated. Their families' communities and churches greatly benefit from the reclaimed power within these mothers, daughters, sisters, wives and leaders.Brenda Joyce Dawson, a forty-year merited educator, public servant and lay minister is recognized as an "unsung heroine."
