Whenever you can gather hundreds of faithful women together in one room, it’s bound to be incredible, right? The Women Ignited in Faith event is just that! The day not only provides fellowship, laughter, and some shopping but encourages you in your walk with the Lord. Melanie and the other speakers are immensely passionate, real women who share raw and honest experiences rooted in biblical truths, leaving you inspired. During one of the speakers at the 2019 event, I was personally stuck with a nudge from the Lord on something that I had been suppressing for over a year. Following the session, for accountability, I leaned over across the table to vocally tell someone of my notion: to offer free, reduced fee or insurance accepted eating disorder treatment in Sioux Falls. In high school, I struggled with anorexia severely, and looking back, I see there was a purpose in the pain. I believe my courage to actually begin something for this population in our community came from seeing these wise, resilient women sharing their stories and hearing their underlying messages, and theme of the conference: “I CAN do all things through Christ who strengthens me”.

FaithSoul is an event that showcases women that have gone above and beyond to anchor their life to God's Purpose and have the FaithSoul to Let GO and Let GOD!
I can plan an event based on the scripture of your choice. We will spend the day discovering how that scripture can relate to our every day lives.
“The first time meeting Melanie in our office I was drawn to her spirit and energy. She is a beautiful person inside and out, and her purpose to help others seeps out of her with her energy to help guide people on their spiritual path. Being asked to be a speaker at Women Ignited by Faith was truly a “God” moment. Melanie had never met me before and asked if I would be apart as a speaker. She had not known that myself and family had been through some recent life changing events and that me sharing my story could help me heal as well as helping other women to heal. She is a woman you’d want in your “tribe” and by your side.
