Women's conference set for weekend

CONYERS -- Women in the Rockdale and Newton communities are invited to attend a conference designed just for them this Friday and Saturday.

The Worship Until We Win Women's Conference 2012 will take place at The Life Church at 3130 Salem Road in Conyers. Registration begins at 6 p.m. Friday with worship and activities to start at 7 p.m. and registration on Saturday begins at 9:30 a.m. followed by activities at 10:30 a.m.

Pastor Tajana Kamin-Logan of Greater Faith Ministries in Conyers is hosting the event, which she said will teach women how to take care of themselves physically, mentally and spiritually.

Kamin-Logan came up with the idea after battling thyroid cancer for eight years. She delayed surgery because of fears about who would take care of her family but finally realized, "I can't take care of them if I'm not well."

"I know me, being a wife and mom, I always put everybody before me," she said.

It's Kamin-Logan's hope that the conference will teach women to be empowered to take care of themselves when they are feeling stressed, overworked and overwhelmed.

Medical doctors will be on hand to educate attendees on various types of cancer, diabetes, heart disease and other diseases, and the conference will also include a Zumba class, worship service, musical performances and giveaways.

Registration is $10 at the door. For more information, call 404-449-7505.
