  • Kristin Ungerecht - Love this! The conference has been an AMAZING encouragement to me! Each year I’ve left feeling challenged, renewed and blessed with new friendships! I love how you explained the higher standard of experience and excellence! I really do believe that the Pursuit 31 Conference not only seeks top level on both of those traits, it achieves the top level. 🙂 So thrilled and honored to be apart of it! xoxo

  • Ashley Barnett Mitchell - Love you so much Karen! I literally get teary eyed every time I think about how much I know my life is going to change after P31…ahhhhh!!! 🙂

  • Suzy VanDyke - Yayyyyy! You worded it so perfectly to describe what makes this conference unique. I love it soooo much!!

  • Wendy Willis Cunningham - I seriously can’t wait for this conference! It will be my second year attending and it is so life changing!

As I sit here trying to sum up what the Pursuit 31 Conference is about, I find myself not being able to find the words.   Even though I spend countless hours dreaming, and planning, and shopping for the conference each year, when the time comes that we are actually all in Georgia, I find […]

Good morning lovies!  I woke up this morning and could NOT shake this so I had to reach out through the internet with a video selfie!   Hope that’s okay! And really hoping this is for someone so I didn’t just talk to myself for no reason! LOL!   Along with a Mini Making Things […]

  • Christy Hendrick - I can’t say enough about the P31 Conference – I left with not only great new photography knowledge (my whole point in going originally), but also with a vast group of friends and colleagues who are fantastic, Godly, passionate women photographers. I can’t say enough WONDERFUL things about this conference, it was exactly the calm, rejuvinating, envigorating, educating, and LOVING experience that I needed – in this industry it’s so easy to get caught up in the ‘cut-throat’ attitude and to see and hear from some really TRULY amazingly talented women – leaders in the industry – who also love God and just wanted to share their story and help others, I couldn’t ask for more! If you are on the fence, I would encourage you – DO WHATEVER IT TAKES (that’s what I had to do last year – scrape everything together, call in every favor, and feel all sorts of mommy guilt) but the rewards have been endless and far- reaching and worth the cost ten-fold. The group of women that I now call friends are worth even more than that!

  • Kristin Ungerecht - I am SO excited about this year’s conference! I know it’s going to be absolutely amazing! Last year was a much needed time for me to get away and hear from God. I can look back over last year and see all the ways He was preparing my heart for what He wanted to tell me at WinShape. It was pretty incredible. And then of course I LOVED being with so many amazing women! Everything we did- from worship to sessions that were layered in so much truth to meals shared with new friends- was so inclusive and full of an open hearted vulnerability. I had never experienced that much camaraderie and acceptance from people who were on day one practically strangers. It was my first real conference and it’s one I’ll be hoping to go to for years to come. 🙂

    Here’s my recap from last October… if you’re on the fence, read this and then SIGN UP. You won’t regret it! 🙂

  • Rita Brock - I didn’t find out about last year’s conference until it was to late to go. I knew that I would do whatever it took to go this year. When I saw the video and read all the posts about the last one it convinced me even more. I signed up as soon as possible for this year’s. years The knowledge that I’m going this year, anticipation for all I know I’ll learn.

  • Joni James - I cant imagine what my life would be like If I never went to the P31 Conference. I have made so many true friends and learned from so many fabulous people! I cant WAIT until next October!

I have always been a lover of the 1940’s.  When other ten year olds were reading Nancy Drew and Ramona the Pest I was immersed in the Diary of Anne Frank and Amelia Earhart Autobiographies.  For years it was the only thing that my Mom could get me to read and every free report I […]

I’m coming to you today with extreme excitement and slight disbelief. I’ve always had a slight obsession with the WW2 Era. Coming from a long line of veterans spanning WW2, Vietnam and the gulf war, I have a special place in my heart for all things military. However anything from the 1940’s has my heart. […]

As many of you know we’ve had to keep our lips quite sealed for the past few months.  But alas… It. Is. Time!  The thing is, I hate surprises.  I always have.   So having to keep all of this from you has been horrible.  I can just feel the anticipation from everyone and I […]

  • DAWN DAVIS - I’m so excited to be part of this adventure with you all…!!!! It’s an incredibly wonderful feeling to give yourself completely and wholeheartedly to our dear Lord. He has not steered me wrong once since I stopped thinking that my life was in my control. I’m so blessed by his presence in my life.

If you know me much at all you know that I just LOVE to laugh.  I love to talk.  I love to listen.  I love to tell stories until the wee hours of the morning.  But to sit.  To be quiet.  To be still.  Now that’s a completely different story. This last week I spent […]
