What Members Say

The Women's Center is really a special place for women of all ages. We  have a place to grow and to increase our territory in life.

My daughter told me recently to pray that God would put everyone in my life that should be there. The Women's Center is an answer to that prayer. I have met so many wonderful women, who say things like 'You are so talented', 'Let me give you a hug', 'I have a gift for you.' This is a place where you know people are happy to see you.
