Grace + Grit Women’s Conference. We are women of all ages and backgrounds who are marked with unmerited favor and unyielding courage. Join us for a powerful weekend of encouragement, the presence of God, contagious laughter, and Instagram worthy photos! It won’t be the same without you.
We believe we can do more collectively than on our own, that is why this year we have chosen to partner together as churches to lead Grace + Grit. We are linking arms with churches all over Southern California and invite you to join us in this spirit of unity. We are better together.
Once upon a time, an LA Laker Girl fell in love with an NHL hockey player, and that was just the beginning. Originally from Tennessee, Chris now lives with her husband, John, and their five children in Costa Mesa, CA, where they lead Pacific Point Church. With toddlers and teens under the same roof, there is plenty of wild & wonderful to write about, and Chris shares their crazy adventures daily @chris_blue. A passionate believer in things being altogether lovely, the Blue house motto is “love hard & fight hard,” and their story tells of the sweetest growth coming from the most difficult moments. When she’s not cleaning house or running carpool, Chris can be found in a hip hop class, at the beach or vintage shopping.
Caitlin Zick is a truth teller, chronic oversharer & community creator. She’s obsessed with watching the Word of God bring people into life and freedom. At sixteen, she had a profound moment when God called her out of a crowd and her life was forever changed. From that day on, she began her journey of self-discovery as a daughter of God, lover of Jesus and a powerful partner of the Holy Spirit in her life. In a culture that is drowning in lies, Caitlin loves to turn up truth and see women set free, transformed and empowered by the love of God. She is the author of “Look at You, Girl”, a kickstart to seeing ourselves the way God does. Caitlin and her husband, Cole, are the directors of Moral Revolution—an organization that exists to start the conversation about healthy sexuality. They live in Northern California with their four children: Caleb, Connor, Cade and Chloe Rose, also known as #thezickzoo. You can follow their wild family on Instagram or find more from Cait at turnuptruth.com.
