Sue Trombino, who founded Women Impacting the Nation (W.I.N.) in the fall of 2005, said “Our objective is to get women to be encouraged and stand firm in their faith. You say you are a Christian, but can you tell me why?”
It is her passion to embolden every Christian and American to get involved in saving the moral compass of America.
“In Isaiah it talks about putting godly people into government,” said Trombino. “We’re supposed to be in the culture. We want to encourage you to do what God called you to do. We want to stir the pot and get you to think – to mentor the younger generation.”
This year’s conference has a number of youthful speakers as Trombino said, “We’re holding up these young women as an example, so they can see these women as their peers.”
Reaching out to youth groups in churches and college leaders, Trombino said, “We want to bridge build with the younger generation and maybe even be able to mentor them.” In keeping with this objective, some scholarships are available for college students.
Your dreams are God’s tool. Trombino said her goal is “to encourage women of all ages to occupy until I come. Be a light and stand true in our faith with confidence now.”
According to their website, Women Impacting the Nation is made up of women like you who want to impact our nation. We are women from every stage and age of life. We are women who love the United States of America, and who believe strongly in the principles upon which this great nation was founded. We are very concerned about where our country is headed and the legacy we will leave for our children and their children and future generations. We believe it is time to stand up and speak out for what we believe, and we believe as women we must be empowered with knowledge and truth – God’s truth.
The women’s conference is being held at the Palm Beach Atlantic University Weyenberg Center, 901 S. Flagler Center, West Palm Beach. To purchase tickets, visit womenimpactingthenation.org or call 1-844-946-8255.
