2015 - 1st Conference

The Refining Life was launched on September 26. 2015 with the first Refining the Mind: Women's Conference. There were 33 attendees and 10 speakers. There were several vendors and we had an amazing time. Over the years we have served hundreds of women through this event and we are hoping to add to that number at our 10th Annual conference this September.

Let the refining and improving of your own life keep you so busy that you have little time to criticize others. ​-H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Women of Refinement

We believe that it is important to give people their flowers while they can smell them. Starting in 2016, we honored amazing women who are making a positive impact on their villages and communities through their life, leadership, and love. We are excited to have honored 3 cohorts of Women of Refinement and look forward to honoring a new cohort this year...can't wait to announce who!
