1:38 Women’s Conference (St. Jude the Apostle – Erie PA)

March 25, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 12:30 pm

1:38 Women’s Conference Featuring Fr. Larry Richards and Laura Phelps — Laura Phelps is a national speaker, author, and Patreon creator with big ideas for Jesus. Laura joined Walking with Purpose (a women’s Catholic Bible Ministry) in 2016 after having a deep, personal encounter with Christ. She then received an undeniable call on her heart to share her story with others. Laura began her journey as a pastoral parish coordinator, and has served the women of Walking With Purpose as a regional area coordinator, blogger, and content creator.

In 2019, Laura took to the main stage at the Walking With Purpose Leader’s Gathering and has spoken to countless women in parishes and at women’s conferences across the country ever since. She loves co-hosting the Walking With Purpose YouTube series Truth With Handles: The Conversation and is the author of two insightful books about suffering and hope.

Relatable, honest, and often hilarious, Laura generously shares the pain of her life, offering you the hope and healing she has found through Jesus and Mary. You will undoubtedly walk away feeling lighter, stronger, and not so alone. Author of Victorious Secret: Everyday Battles And How To Win Them, and Sweet Cross: A Marian Guide To Suffering, Laura is on a personal mission to encourage women to hold fast to the truth we try so hard to ignore: that there is no way around your cross, so you might as well embrace it.

We are so excited to have Laura as our featured speaker this year and we encourage all of you to register and join us IN PERSON for the 8th Annual 1:38 ​Women’s Conference on Sat. March 25th!
