A two-day experience designed to help you overcome yourself, share your story, and discover freedom in a new kind of confession.
NEXT EVENT: AUGUST 2 – 3, 2019 in SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS
Do you ever feel like you have to pretend to be someone you're not?
Do you feel like you have to have it all together?
You hide behind a mask, afraid to show what’s really going on in your life. Because people will judge you if they know, right?
Do you feel like you have to have it all together?
So you hide behind a mask, afraid to show what’s really going on in your life, because people will judge you if they knew?
Do you ever feel consumed by hopelessness?
All the while, you keep a smile plastered on your face because you don’t think anyone else can understand what you’re going through.
But… you are not alone.
You don’t have to carry your burdens on your own.
It’s time to free yourself from the situations and experiences that keep you stuck and silent. Together, let’s find purpose in our pain and live up to our full potential as women.

Hosted at the Historic Menger Hotel in Downtown San Antonio.
Rooted in the rich history of San Antonio, the Historic Menger Hotel reigns as the oldest continuously operating hotel west of the Mississippi. An elegant anchor just steps from the Alamo, the storied hotel has played host to generations of guests who delight in its architectural grandeur, glamorous public spaces, and thoughtful modern-day services and amenities. The Menger is located within walking distance of the famous San Antonio Riverwalk, a mecca of shops and dining along an urban waterway.
Transformation In Other Women
“I have learned to meet people where they are. When you hear someone’s story it is impossible to be judgmental towards them because you understand them better.”Val
“I’ve learned how to replace feelings of anxiety, worry, and depression with feelings of peace, joy, and hope. The sweet taste of freedom and victory is so much better than the bitter dregs of bondage and defeat!”Kate
“Telling my story in a safe environment has been the most freeing thing I’ve ever done. I have learned that my story defines who I am & I’m proud of who I am.”Kim

Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I Invest in this event?
We know it’s a big investment, but we’re confident the transformation is worth it. We spend so much time and effort trying to pretend and look good on the outside that we often forget to put the effort into our internal health. This event provides an opportunity for you to experience a safe space to be real, honest, and transparent. It allows you to create lifetime connections with other women and will help you leave equipped to continue walking out your transformation. The level of personal freedom you get to experience after attending will help you live to your fullest potential.
