We chat about Colour Conference.
When was your first Colour Conference?
‘I went to the very first ever one.’ [The first Colour Conference was in Sydney in1997.]
What impression did it make on you?
‘I can still tell you exactly what Pastor Holly Wagner spoke about. She spoke a message on friendship and the power of great friends in your life. It was very impacting. And I remember thinking, “Wow, this is really awesome.” And there were about 600-and-something women, and it was in this warehouse-type church building we’d hired down the road. And Christine Caine spoke too. And I remember coming away from it going, “Okay, that was seriously amazing.” Seeing the girls there, and so much passion and excitement, and everything was done so beautifully. Even though it was very early days, it still had the spirit of excellence. And I think girls were enlarged, strengthened, inspired and challenged. I thought this is just going to be an awesome conference in the future.’
How has Colour impacted your life over the years?
‘I think, through the teaching and the Word, it has helped me to be a better woman, a better leader, a better mother, a better wife, a better person in every single way. I think it has been profound. I can’t actually define it – I think about it often – but I think God is really happy with it. He loves it when you empower the women, and He smiles upon it. When you make women feel valued and empowered, it gets His heart, and He just seems to bless it. And out of that, I’ve been so blessed. You know, it’s really empowered women to rise up. Every woman can make a difference on the earth. I believe in women so much because of what I’ve been part of. I want every woman to realise that she is amazing.’
