Women of faith to ‘shine’ at conference

Published: Thursday, February 7, 2013 at 10:58 AM.

The Teen Conference for ages 13 and up will be led by Faith Ellisor, a pastor’s wife and mother who has been in Christian Radio for more than 20 years. She will focus her talk on who God sees us to be and why, based on her new Bible study, “God’s Girl by Design.”

“I have been a youth minister and cannot imagine any life but serving God,” she told The Log. “I love teens and I cannot wait to meet each of them in March.”  

Teens, especially girls, face an excessive amount of pressure and lies to fit into “industry” standards of beauty and worth, according to Ellisor.

“I feel very strongly that young women today need to hear what the truth is about who they are, and that beauty stems from within them rather than upon them,” she said.

Her message to the teens will be that they matter and are of great worth.

“They have been formed by the very Hand of God Himself and that makes them priceless.”
