LINCOLN, Neb. -- August 25, 2016 -- Many conferences are simulcast for a fee. But on Friday, August 26, the BELONG Tour, a 12-city women’s event, will live stream a 45-minute sneak peek--rare, maybe unprecedented--to its two-day events for women across the demographic map.
Featuring favorite speakers and artists (Jen Hatmaker, Angela Davis, Patsy Clairmont, Sharon Irving, Shauna Niequist, Nichole Nordeman et al), BELONG uses laughter and candor to assure every woman she is not alone and that she matters.
And of course, a LIVE broadcast means anything can happen.
“Everyone signed up to watch is eligible to win two free tickets to a tour date of her choice,” Jen Hatmaker said. The HGTV celeb’s latest book, For the Love, recently topped the New York Times best seller list. “At the end of the broadcast, I stand onstage and call the winner right in front of God and everybody!”
Fan Laura C. sums up her BELONG experience on Facebook: “I am not someone who goes to ‘women’s events.’ I do not like super emotional, cheesy, ‘get in touch with your emotions’ types of gatherings. But this weekend . . . no cheese. It was one of the best events I’ve ever been to.
Women getting real with their pain, encouraging us to go beyond our comfort zones in non-traditional ways, helping us to think outside of the box. . . . I was changed, and in the midst of the weekend, laughed myself silly and cried many cleansing tears.”
BELONG fans eager to sample the tour may register in advance at www.belongtour.com/sneakpeek by 11:59 pm CDT tonight--Thursday, August 25--to receive an access link to watch.
The BELONG Tour is a 12-city movement drawing women from all camps, all stripes, into arenas and conversations that give meaning, connection and hope. With 30 books and leading blogs, television shows, national stages and awards to their credit, Jen Hatmaker, Shauna Niequist, Patsy Clairmont, Angela Davis, Sharon Irving, and Nichole Nordeman—an impressive circle of authors and artists—open themselves unconventionally to convention-sized crowds of women coming in twos, in groups, and by the bus load.
Throughout the two-day BELONG program women can reconnect with their dreams, form communities, and identify next steps in living out their purpose.
