Speakers 2019

“Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul.                                                                                                       I cried unto him with my mouth, and he was extolled with my tongue.”                                                             Psalm 66:16,17

Our speakers this year are from right here in the Valley. God has been doing such amazing and wonderful things all around us for the past few years, we know that He is asking us to share our own stories with all of you. Come praise God with us as you hear all that He has done for our souls right here at home… in all our mundane and routine lives as wives & mothers. He truly has tested and tried us, afflicted us, and keeps bringing us out to a place of abundance, as Psalm 66 proclaims. We have chosen this chapter of the Bible as our theme chapter and are praying that you all meditate on it before, during, and after the conference. Our hope is that you catch the vision that God has for you through the proclaiming of God’s grace in each of the speaker’s lives.


Speakers 2019 1

Nikita Rio

You will be awed as you listen to our newest dear friend share her testimony of God’s grace in her life. Now a sister in Christ, Nikita is excited to tell us all about her Saviour opening her eyes to her desperate need and how she found the cure in the pages of Scripture. We are so excited for you to meet this lady and hear another unique story of God pursuing us in love!






Speakers 2019 2

Tanya Baltzer

Tanya knows what it is to experience the ongoing transformation of Christ over many years. She has an amazing story of grace that continually encourages us and we can’t wait for you to hear all God has done and is doing in her life. It’s a big deal, folks! As always, Scripture is at the heart of God doing those big things.






Speakers 2019 4

Nova Lake

We love Nova’s approach to Scripture and how she always sees the positive side in the Word of God. God has given her a unique story and we know she will be an encouragement to all who listen in! Her love for Scripture has transformed how she sees each day and has brought new growth and freshness to her walk with God.







Speakers 2019 3


Jenn Slauenwhite

Through the highs and lows of life Jenn has been learning to live out all that she draws from her Bible. Consumed by ‘all the things’ that Christ has accomplished in and around her, she is excited to share from her experience and encourage you all to get to know the Saviour more. The Bible has changed her life and we will hear a bit about all that God has done for her soul.

Lois Dorey


Last year my mom was a huge encouragement as she spoke of her home as a child, her conversion as an adult and how it transformed her own heart, and then her home. I’ve asked her to come back and chat with you all about her observations in the later years of child-rearing. We know it is so important to listen and glean from older women and all they have learned and I know you will be further encouraged by her insight into real life through Scripture.

Stephanie Haayer

As young wife and mother this woman had no idea what God had in store for her just a couple of years ago. We have watched Stephanie’s story unfold and can you just lift your hands in praise for ‘all the things’ that God keeps doing around us??!! You’ll hear her story of redemption and grace that will grow your trust in an Almighty God that draws us to Himself. We can’t wait for you to meet this beautiful young woman!






Charmin Meadows

Scripture has challenged and rocked her world. The deeper in the Word she gets the more amazed she is at what she finds (and what she doesn’t find!). Everything is different now and Charmin will share how her life and biblical view has been changed over the past few years through her new approach to the Bible. We will also hear all about many ‘host favourites’ again in separate sessions from Charmin, including many of the prizes we will be drawing for during the weekend.




Shannon Elson

Often over the years I have told the Lord that if He doesn’t find a way for me to share all the things that He has done and my love for Scripture, I’ll burst! The VWEC has been a desire given by Him years ago and I and my friends who jumped on board are seeing so many ways God is using it to bring women to a saving knowledge of Him as well as teaching them to love their Bibles to turn their worlds upside down. This year will be full of real-life examples of what is possible when we immerse ourselves in life-giving words, and I’m so excited to introduce it all to you soon!


And if you’d like to shop…


Cheryl James

Our favourite bookstore lady is back again this year! Cheryl is so kind to bring much of her store and set up shop for the weekend so you have a place to shop in between sessions. She has a wide range of books from Christian living, parenting, fiction, and homeschool supplies. Come ready to enjoy HomeGrown!
