    Has God called you to lead a small group of women from your neighborhood, church, workplace or in your community? 

    If you said yes, we would like to invite you to be a Local Lydia Volunteer and learn how to lead a Spiritual Formation Group.

    A Spiritual Formation group is a safe place where people of faith can encounter the love of Jesus together through quiet, prayerful contemplation and sharing. Our hearts long to become a reflection of the One we love. This gathering, focuses on the forming of our spirits and can help you help other women to reflect on the light and love of Christ.

A Local Lydia
Winchester, KY

My passion runs deep for helping you break down the barriers you have created within yourself. I know through my own life experiences, the pain we bear, the heartache we wear, mistakes we've made, and decisions we’ve chosen and how that sometimes distorts our view when we look in the mirror; therefore, I am called to empower women to see how God sees. 

I am called to encourages women to understand there is a calling on their life.  I organize and speak at women’s conferences, lead women’s Bible study and mentor Young Adults. ~ Vache'
