When a woman receives an organ transplant, she will spend the rest of her life actively taking care of that organ she wants her body to accept, rather than reject. The long-term success of that organ depends on many things. She needs to take the correct dose of anti-rejection medications at the proper time and follow the recommended schedule for lab tests and clinic visits to make sure the new organ is working properly. She establishes new habits that will help her remain healthy.
God performed a heart transplant for us when we said “Yes” to following Jesus. We now have the power of the Holy Spirit to focus our hearts on God rather than self. However, the desires of our flesh (fear of man, insecurity, pride, comparison, envy, jealousy, feeling sorry for ourselves, to name a few) are strong. If we are not diligent and purposeful in fighting against these desires daily, the flesh will win. We need to establish new daily habits such as Bible reading and prayer to ensure our hearts become spiritually healthy and mature. This one-day conference is a tangible way God will help you fight against the desires of the flesh so you can have long-term success with a healthy heart.
I invite you to join us for one day as we seek God and focus on what He has to say through our guest speaker, Susie Larson, and our worship leader, Jamie Jamgochian. We are praying that God will touch your heart in a special way.
Invite someone to come with you! We hope to see you there!
Kathy Tyrrell, on behalf of the Capital District Women’s Conference
Awaken My Heart
How would you live differently if you knew that your identity was not up for grabs or dependent on popular opinion? Would you take more risks? Love more freely? Believe more boldly? How do you walk free when all you’ve known is captivity? Do you believe that God created you for a purpose? Does it seem that once you awaken to this idea, you hit one roadblock after another? How do you navigate the waters of opposition, face the reality of your fears, and lay hold of God’s best purposes for you? Join us as Susie helps us take a fresh look at being made brand new in Christ Jesus, contending for the freedom that Jesus obtained for us, as well as being challenged and motivated to become and accomplish everything God intended for us since the beginning of time!

Worship Leader - Jaime Jamgochian
Jaime, a Boston native, is a woman of deep faith whom God is using through her music and message. Jaime came to know the Lord at 21 years of age at Berklee College of Music, and God completely changed her life. It’s her greatest passion and desire to see teen girls really know who they are in Christ, know how much God loves them, and to avoid some of the hopeless roads she traveled. “The biggest thing God did when I got saved was restore hope in a lot of areas. I was searching for hope in all the wrong places, in temporary things: relationships, body image and success,” she confides. “When I met Christ, I experienced and continue to experience true hope. I pray that is what teen girls and women find when they listen to my music or attend an event.” In addition to concerts and events, Jaime leads worship at her local church in Nashville, where she also mentors girls. She is currently writing for a new album as well as writing her first book and curriculum, resources she hopes will equip the church to teach girls and women about God’s definition of beauty and purity.
