Do you remember what it felt like to play as a girl for hours on end completely carefree?  Maybe you were like me and played “Mommy,” pretending to do all the laundry, cooking and caring for children.  Oh, the lengths I would go to look like, talk like, dress like and even smell like my mother.  This was the definition of woman.

The modeling of womanhood is no simple endeavor, nor is this current chapter in our time of history. Women are fighting relentlessly, and justifiably to find and make known their voice, their rightful place, and their worth and equality. However, there’s so much more to shaping and modeling womanhood than caring for house and home or protesting in the streets. Each has its necessary roles, but there’s more to womanhood that Heaven beckons us to explore.  There’s keys to longevity in the thriving and the flourishing that we should lean into.  Our womanhood must find its redemption and empowerment so that we can dare to live in the beautiful Eden that Christ restored for us all to enjoy in abundance, regardless of the rights or roles this world bestows on us as women.

The 2019 Eden Conference, hosted right here at StoryHeights, will be amazing! Wrapped in the language of “Wear your mother’s teaching like a floral garland around your head – the virtue, the boldness, the salvation,” consider this invitation both personal and for your friends. Even if you don’t have a good role model in your biological mother, the most amazing thing about the family of God is these role models await and welcome you.  We all need to learn how to model to the world and the next generation of girls what God’s original design was when He knitted woman together.

In the promotions of Sisterhood conferences all over the globe, you’ll see the language of “experience the room” often used because there is something tangibly felt as women gather, under one roof, and become a living, breathing and dynamic canvas of age, diversity, culture, passion and unity.

For this year’s conference, I have invited long-time friends and women who serve as models of longevity to me in their careers, families, virtue and faith: Stephanie Musso, Ann Morrow and Susan Williams. I invited them not because they’re famous and you’ve heard them, but because they’re faithful mothers in the House of God.  They can all light up a room in a unique and stunning way. And as always, our own much loved and dynamic StoryHeights Worship, Pastoral and Teaching Team will bring their most excellent worship and service.

The Global Sisterhood craves for you to join us, as does our good God. He beams with pride for you and can’t wait to shower you with an unending supply of hope, redemption, confidence, identity, truth and kindness – all He planned for you when He created us in Eden’s Garden. With that in mind, my prayers go before you, and I look forward to gathering soon.

With all my heart,

Crystal Tullos

Host and Founder of Eden

Stephanie spent 30 years in middle school! Actually, she is a retired middle school band director who totally embraced every aspect of the “tween” phase.  She was voted Teacher of the Year four times during her career; but one of her proudest accomplishments is the formation of a Fellowship of Christian Students club with over 250 members. She is a native of Louisiana, has been married to her high school sweetheart, Danny, also known as “Poppa Moose,” for 38 years.  Together they have 4 children and 7 grandchildren. Stephanie didn’t come to know Jesus until she was 42 years old…and according to the statistics, only had a 6% chance of doing so!  She is a member of Healing Place Church where she and her husband lead a married couples small group. Stephanie also leads a middle/high school girls small group, and they are both leaders of HPC’s youth group, Devoted, of which their youngest son, Paul, is the pastor.

Stephanie is hilarious, keeps it real, and has contagious joy.

Ann Morrow has been on the pastoral staff of Healing Place Church in Baton Rouge, for 14 years.  She serves  by leading and directing ministries, leadership classes, marriage classes, and women’s Bible studies.

Ann is passionate about helping people connect to God by empowering them through God’s Word and His promises. She delivers the Word with much boldness and authority.

Ann is seasoned and trained in prophetic ministry.  She has a true passion for intercessory prayer, and is a sharp warrior for Christ with much Biblical literacy.    

Ann and her husband Perry have been married for 43 years.   They have 3 children who are married and all together they have 12 grandchildren. You will love the fire she brings.

Susan recently retired after working 34 years with Dow Chemical Company. Over her career she held a wide variety of manufacturing, supply chain and customer service leadership roles in Plastics, Elastomers, Building and AgroSciences businesses.  During the last 10 years, Susan was the Director of Operations over numerous global manufacturing facilities,  learning the cultures, values and “way to get things done” in North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia Pacific. Over the last 35 years, Susan and her husband Eric have had the privilege of participating and serving in many churches all over the US from church plants to fully established churches with major building projects.  They are now developing a “Blessing Exchange” to help those in need with household furnishings and goods. Susan has a passion for sharing how to be strong and courageous people of God at every opportunity. Susan loves spending time with her grandchildren and 2 grown daughters and their husbands.

Susan serves as one of StoryHeight’s overseers. You’ll love her polished and corporate demeanor.

Verna Del Turco is a woman of vision and excellence. Her heart for God’s people and her ability to motivate others has made her a popular speaker throughout New England and the nations. God has blessed Verna with practical insights about marriage, family life and victorious Christian living. Pastor Jonathan and Verna Del Turco founded International Family Church (IFC) in 1981 with a vision and heart to see people walk in the fullness of who they are in Christ and to fulfill their God-given destiny. Their vision continues to become a reality as they see people connecting with Christ, their local church and the call of God upon their lives. Over 60 countries, nationals who have immigrated to the United States, are represented in the congregation of IFC. The Del Turco’s spirit of excellence and heart for God’s people have led them into a world-wide arena of ministry.

Verna has been married to Jonathan and served in the ministry since 1976. She is the mother of two children Jonathan and Lori Ann and grandmother of five beautiful grandchildren, Isabella, Mia and Jonathan, III, Benjamin and James!
