"Between work, home, and relationships there is typically very little left for women to have for themselves. So much so that we forget about what we really want, how to trust ourselves, and how to hear what God is trying to tell us. God Said Go has become a movement to help women pour into themselves first as much as they pour into everybody else. It's all about healing and growth."
