Join us for our First Annual Spring Women’s Gathering!

Our theme this year will be “Bringing Hope” and is based on Psalm 3:3 – “You, O Lord, are a shield about me… the lifter of my head.” Whether your days are filled with joy or you find yourself struggling to cope with all that life seems to throw your way, this event is for you. Come be refreshed and revived and leave with a new sense of peace, joy, and HOPE!
 
Our time together will include inspiring speakers, uplifting music, good food (can you say CHOCOLATE??), lots of amazing door prizes, and fun fellowship! Don’t miss it!
 

Meet the Speakers

 
Paula Rasmussen was born and raised in Montana. She is the wife of Ed and mother of two biological daughters, Angie and Sadie. She has four step-children, nine grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.
 
Paula’s personal testimony is a testament to the grace and mercy found only in Jesus. Currently, she is the Executive Director for the Montana Southern Baptist Women and the leader of both Children’s Ministry and Missions in her local church. Paula loves Jesus, people, and missions. She especially loves connecting to the hearts of the broken and tired.
 
 
 
 
 
Tammy Aten was born into a Baptist minister’s family in west Texas and began singing at 2 years old. She grew to love music and later pursued a double performance degree in piano & voice at Wayland University, where she met her future husband, Sherman. After graduation, they were married and began serving in ministry at churches in West Texas and New Mexico.
 
In 1990, God called them out of what was a dream situation for them to a life of faith and ministry on the road. That step of obedience has now taken them literally all over the world where Tammy has worn many hats, from worship leader to teaching her own son & daughter on the road to her own special women’s ministry. That journey began 28 years ago and has forged a story of incredible blessings, which include her walk through breast cancer, prodigals, and the loss of a parent through Alzheimer’s.
Tammy and Sherman presently live in Granbury, Texas, where they continue to travel & share the Gospel through worship and host their Three2One Marriage Conferences world-wide.
Juliana Wilson, a middle Tennessee native, recently joined the Tennessee WMU team following five exciting years of working in public relations and communications. She currently serves as Tennessee WMU Communications / Childhood Missions Specialist at the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board. She and her husband have been involved in student ministry and served as full time Fuge Camp staffers the first three summers of their marriage.
 
Juliana is passionate about encouraging and equipping others to share their faith and loves seeing young people grow in the Lord. When she isn’t writing or reading you will probably find her making any excuse to go wake surfing at the lake.
