Speaker: Tamara Conway 

“Tamara Conway is a lover of writing, a wife of over 21 years, a mother to 4 amazing children, a speaker, and content creator with Stamena4life, LLC, serving as a Life Coach for over 15 years, and Grief Recovery specialist. She has worked alongside her husband, Steven, in pastoral ministry for over 20 years, and has had the privilege of sharing her testimony and tests with women, men, couples, boys and girls all over the world.

With God’s help, tools, and amazing support, she was able to break generational cycles of dysfunction, negative thought patterns & beliefs, and recognize that she didn’t have to just live life coping. She could in fact HEAL and rebuild what was once broken. Her mission is to help people utilize tools that will educate and inspire them to do some of the most important, life altering work, in the areas of healing from loss, change, rejection, abuse, trauma and so much more.”


“In today’s world, we are witnessing a desperate need for us to address and break generational cycles, as well as discuss those things what were once tabu, so that we can finally move from a place simply coping, to real healing. However, it won’t happen without prayer, intentional effort and a bold fight to be whole. Come and join me in March 2023, as we dive into God’s word, and take a look at some practical ways we can go from simply living this life, coping until Jesus comes, to a place of healing, while awaiting the great HEALER! – “Beloved, I pray that in every way you may succeed and prosper and be in good health (mentally, emotionally, physical and spiritually.” – 3 John 2

Tammy Cranston 

Author of Why Not Me

In three short years, Tammy’s life was flipped upside down-she went from planning a wedding to planning a funeral. Tammy admits that if God had told her what would happen after marrying Larry, she may have hesitated, questioning God’s plan and her ability to walk through the hard times ahead. However, God knew what He was doing, as He always does. “Why Not Me?” is the story of Larry and Tammy Smestad’s quest to live life to the fullest and enjoy the time God gave them while living with cancer. It is a story of loyalty, love, and loss, but ultimately it is a story of faith in a loving God who comforts us and gives us hope when we earnestly seek Him.


Looking forward to meeting you at the future Wisconsin Women’s Retreats!

May God continue to abundantly bless you and your families and keep you safe and healthy.
