What is The Awakening?

Welcome to your "Moment of Awakening"! We are so thrilled that you have taken a moment to visit with us. It is our hope that you will be encouraged, inspired, and challenged to pursue your destiny as a result of the time you spend perusing our site. There are many of us who know that we have purpose to fulfill, but just haven't been able to completely identify what it is. The greatest enemies of our destiny are the lack of identified purpose and lack of personal achievement. When we do not know what we are to do, defeat sets in, and we find ourselves throwing our hands up in disgust as life takes on monotony and routine. Well, that all changes today! You have just made an appointment with destiny, and it is time to WAKE UP, shake off the dust of despondency, and obtain what is rightfully yours! Don't allow purpose to find you unprepared...

To each there comes in their lifetime a special moment when they are figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique to them and fitted to their talents. What a tragedy if that moment finds them unprepared or unqualified for that which could have been their finest hour...Winston Churchill

(Ephesians 5:14) Wherefore, he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light!

The Awakening Women's Encounter

The Awakening Women's Encounter is an annual gathering of women from all walks of life focused on encouraging, empowering, and spiritually equipping all who attend. Women are given an opportunity to intimately bond in small group gatherings, in addition to enjoying times of corporate worship in large general sessions. Originating in 2009, each year this event gains momentum in attendance, power, and positive spiritual impact. Each year much prayer, fasting, and meditation is put into organizing this event in a manner that will set the atmosphere for God's dwelling. For this reason, we have identified it as an "encounter" versus a "conference". A conference has a beginning and an end, however, an encounter has a life-changing effect that impacts a lifetime.

Birthing of The Awakening

I graduated from high school in 1984, and proceeded to Washington, DC, where I began my college education at Howard University. Totally unaware and unconcerned with God's plans for my life, I started enjoying the freedom of being independent and away from home. Like many other young people, who leave home for the very first time, I was more focused on "spreading my wings" than gaining an education. It was during this time that God birthed the vision of The Awakening, totally unbeknownst to me. Let me tell you how...

One of my favorite hangouts in D.C. was Haines Point. Anyone who knows anything about Haines Point, is familiar with the huge sculpture of the giant that was located there (it has recently been moved to the National Harbor in Baltimore). It is called "The Awakening", and gives the illusion of a giant rising up out of the ground with his face and portions of his hands, arms, and legs protruded from the ground. I could be dishonest and say that I was a great art enthusiast, and I enjoyed the detail the artist used in its creation, but it wouldn't be the truth. The reality is that it was a great place to hang out and party with my friends. I spent many hours there sitting in "His" hands, and climbing on the different sections of the sculpture. I also would retreat to this spot on numerous occasions when I felt depressed and all alone. Little did I know, that at that point I was having an encounter with a part of my destiny.

Let's fast forward to 2009 (25 years later), as I lay prostrate on the floor of our guestroom. I began to cry out to God in desperation for more of Him. I felt as if I was wasting away, with not much personal direction or fulfillment. I felt empty inside, and knew that I had to have direction in order to obtain the life that I knew God had ordained for me. It is in this moment of pursuit that God flashed the image of the giant in my mind. As I dismissed the image as a distraction from the enemy, I pressed in harder to hear from God. Still again, the image of the giant scrolled across my mind. I had not thought about that "the giant" in years, and in this moment God would not let me shake the picture of him rising out of the ground in an effort to free himself from the bondage of the earth. Then I heard "Awakening", and the Lord began to show me how my purpose was tied to this huge metal construction that I had once used as a place of rebellion, depression, and expression of my independence.

He began to reveal to me my purpose in ministering to women who seemed to be stuck and buried in a place that would keep them from fulfilling purpose and destiny. He shared with me that I would be integral in women "rising" out of deep, dark places into the light of God's love that would empower and equip them to fulfill purpose. After receiving that revelation, I had to first rise up myself and begin a journey that was unfamiliar, and honestly, quite scary.

What I realized in that "Moment of Awakening" was I was asking Him to use me, but I was not taking any steps to position myself for it to happen. My excuses ranged from my dysfunctional upbringing, to my life of destructive relationships, and a myriad of awful decisions I had made throughout the years. God let me know that He was fully aware of my past; however He was more concerned with where He wanted to take me than where I had come from.

So, I had to now implement in my own life, what I had constantly encouraged other women around me to do. "Do it scared!" I must admit, I was intimidated by the whole process of organizing and spearheading a women's conference. However, the Lord had already equipped me to be able to handle the task at hand. The truth of the matter is……The Lord has pulled me up and out in order for me to be used by HIM to pull others up and out.
