The Mom Conference 

The Mom Conference is presented by The Mom Connection in partnership with Moms in Prayer International.  How did the previous generations impact us as mothers? How can our daily walk today affect our children in the future? Are we taking advantage of the unprecedented gift of prayer that God has given us to go before the next generation? No matter what our past and present circumstances, God can work in and through every joy, trial and choice we make. Featured speaker, Sally Burke,  is a dynamic presenter and teacher. As the president of Moms in Prayer International, she leads a worldwide ministry and oversees staff and directors who are equipping and encouraging women in the transforming power of prayer. Sally and her husband, Ed, have four adult children, one son-in-law, two daughters-in-law, and two grandchildren. northcoastwomen.com
