She is Free 2017 finished on the strongest note possible, bringing to a close one of the best weekends of the year.
Day 3 opened up with more free coffee (thanks Joe!) and fellowship in the lobby before everyone settled in for a meaningful word from Liberty Church's own Nicole Reyes. Nicole spoke about shifting our perspectives in a world where it's so easy to "despise the decrease" as we seek to increase God's presence in our lives.
Nicole was followed by Havilah Cunnington, who brought yet another strong message. She talked us through what she calls the four "prophetic personalities" - the ways people hear from God. There are knowers, seers, hearers and feelers, and Havilah made sure every woman in the room knew which type they are - and the strengths and weaknesses of each. After her message, Havilah and her sister prayed and prophesied over everybody.
The first part of the day also included powerful worship and a message from Children's Cup, after which many women took advantage of the opportunity to sponsor children in Swaziland.
The evening session brought it all home, featuring a word from Heather Lindsey. Heather preached a message called "Hustling Ahead of God," a perfect word for the women of New York City. Heather also prayed over the women of She is Free and there was - you guessed it - powerful worship.
But all good things must come to an end, and this year's conference closed with beautiful gifts, prayer, and a brilliant benediction. We're sad it's over, but we'll see you all at church on Sunday - and back at She is Free in 2018.
