In January 2013, a women’s networking group began in DeFuniak Springs.

Founded by Kim Wennerberg, with help from her steering committee, Mary Burns, Julie White and Kasey Cuchens, The Luminary Connection is a warm, inviting setting for professional women.

“Our desire is to network and learn what business opportunities like minded women can create with one another,” Wennerberg told The Sun. “To address through biblical teachings how to manage the daily struggles we women experience both in the workplace and at home.”

Meetings are held from 12-1 p.m. the third Thursday of the month at the Life Enrichment Senior Center on College Avenue.

“I just felt God leading me to do something more ... to show His love better, to use some of the gifts He has given me ... to bless others and be blessed at the same time,” Wennerberg said. “To learn from other women and in turn, do more business together as a result.”

Not knowing exactly which direction to take, Wennerberg considered how God could best use her. During this time, she met a man who had started a men’s Christian networking group in Georgia.

“I thought, ‘Hey, now that's something I can do!’”
