Fearfully & Wonderfully Made in His Image 

When women of Faith in Jesus come together to share life with authenticity and transparency something beautiful happens. When we allow the Holy Spirit to move in and through us, lives are forever changed.

Cherished Women's Gathering is a weekend event that "Gathers" women together with the sole purpose of getting to know Jesus in a way that leads to living life knowing You are "Fearfully & Wonderfully Made in His Image". You will experience Women, just like you and I, sharing their testimonies of a Heavenly Father who loved them, strengthened them and grew their faith in Him, through difficult and challenging times.  

You will hear Encouraging, Inspiring and Heartwarming Real Life Stories that will open your heart and mind to the Hope that lies only in Him.

You will laugh, you will cry, you will be challenged and encouraged! You will leave this time together with new hope and encouragement, strength and courage to navigate the trials and challenges that this life brings our way!


BONUS ALERT, You'll also leave this gathering with new connections to sisters that will pray with you and for you!  

We invite you to attend CHERISHED FEARFULLY & WONDERFULLY MADE IN HIS IMAGE, our 6th annual FREE Women's Gathering sponsored by His House Foundation and located at Lakeside Christian Church.

Carissa Kinman lives in Macomb, Illinois with her husband, Brian, and two children, Addison, age 6 and, Huxton, age 3. Carissa’s ambition drove her to succeed in many areas of life including education, career and health until she found herself laid off from her job in 2019 with her mental and physical health deteriorating. The things she had build her worth and identity on, were stripped away leaving her lost, broken, and seeking purpose and meaning. After years of seeking her worth and identity in the world and running from God since college, Carissa recommitted her life to Christ in 2020. Since then, God has walked Carissa through an incredible journey of healing through physical and emotional health struggles, helped her redefine her identity and worth in Christ and find meaning and purpose again. Carissa is active in her church, The Crossing, and sings on the worship team. She has recently launched a health coaching business combining her background in psychology with her passion for health and wellness to help others take charge of their own health and inspire others to do the same.
