2020 GIVEN Forum Speakers
“I left feeling not only incredibly empowered and ready to take on my entrepreneurial action plan, but ready to enter into the vocation of marriage, as well! GIVEN was hands down the most transformative, empowering, and inspiring Christian women’s conference I have ever been to.”
“God used GIVEN to really form my identity as a woman and to show me His will in my life.”
“GIVEN provided role models, testimonies, and tangible tools to navigate the world as a Catholic woman of this generation.”
“Women have a place of leadership in the Church, and the Lord has given each of us a unique gift and call in order to serve and love him. The GIVEN Forum gave me permission to dream with the Lord, to open my heart, and to hear his call for my life in prayer.”
