For its fourth Inspirational Weekend event, the Olympic Peninsula Women’s Fellowship expands and moves west.
Organizers set “Remember His Faithfulness,” based on the book of “Joshua” chapter 4, for Friday-Saturday, March 6-7 at Port Angeles High School, 304 E. Park Ave. Seminars run from 7-8:45 p.m. Friday; and 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Saturday, and 12:30-3 p.m. with an optional lunch.
Michele Cushatt, a three-time head and neck cancer survivor and parent of “children from hard places,” speaks during three seminars over the weekend relating her experiences of trauma and pain and a “deep human need for authentic connection.” She is the author of three books including last November’s release “Relentless: The Unshakeable Presence of a God Who Never Leaves.”
Tickets cost $30, with an additional lunch/seminar costing $12, before Feb. 14. Cost goes up $10 afterward and at the door. Lunch must be purchased by Feb. 28. Children 18 and under receive $10 off tickets.
Organizers held their first event at Dungeness Community Church and the following years at Sequim High School where they maxed out capacity at 600 in attendance each year.
They started the Olympic Peninsula Women’s Fellowship in 2016 with “the vision to be a catalyst for unifying and encouraging women in Christ across the Olympic Peninsula through Biblically-based annual events.”
Dedicated seating is available in the front two rows for those with mobility issues, those who prefer to sit throughout the worship time, and/or those who require American Sign Language interpretation.
Sequim native Julienne Marie Fry and her group Of Dust lead worship music for the weekend.
Cushatt has spoken internationally to a variety of audiences at numerous corporate and ministry events and various podcast, radio, video and audio recording mediums. She can be found weekly with her friend Kathi Lipp on their Communicator Academy podcast. Cushatt also works with the SCORRE Conference coaching leaders and speakers to discover, develop, and deliver powerful presentations.
She released her first book, the memoir “Undone: A Story of Making Peace With An Unexpected Life,” with Zondervan Publishers in 2015, followed by the devotional written after her third round of cancer, titled “I Am: A 60-Day Journey To Knowing Who You Are Because of Who He Is,” in Jan. 2017.
Cushat lives in Colorado with her husband Troy and their six children. For more information on her, visit michelecushatt.com/.
