Welcome to Royal Daughters 2017!

God has done so much in our lives; He has extravagantly and wonderfully exchanged our sorrows with His joy, clothed us with garments of praise in exchange for our heaviness, and given us His Beauty for our ashes.

Beauty for Ashes has been the story of our lives, a story we will never forget, a story of God’s grace. Reminding us always of where He has brought us from, to where we are today. It has been a magnificent royal journey where we discovered our worth, our value, the wonderment of being a woman and being a Daughter of the King.

God desires for us all to grow up into a place of liberty and maturity as He continues His work in us, transforming us into the image of His dear Son. Yes we belong to Him, we are His, we are His Daughters and we are Royal; Royal Daughters of God our Father and co-heirs with Jesus Christ his Son. This is the reason for renaming our conference from Beauty For Ashes to Royal Daughters. For God’s plans and purposes to be realised in our lives, one thing is for sure: we must make room for the Holy Spirit to direct and empower us to live the life He has called us to live.

This year is also the 10th Anniversary of hosting this conference for women. Women of all ages, from all walks of life who have the desire to find purpose, encouragement, truth, inspiration and freedom. We have helped build safe havens for women and young ladies so they can rise up from their ashes and lay hold of the promises of God for themselves. We have helped build platforms for women to take their God-designated places, anointing and mandates. We have helped them to run strong with the message of the Gospel; and a Christ-centred hope, not just for their benefit but also for the benefit of others who join us at this conference. We are excited to host you and anyone else you are bringing. We are greatly expectant and looking forward to seeing you in Wanganui.

Royal Daughters Conference will be on the 11th and 12th of August this year. Our Team are looking forward to hosting you at this heaven on earth conference. Let us together celebrate the faithfulness of God to us and let us give Him room to speak to us afresh and lead us into new territories and new assignments.
Thus the theme of Conference 2017 is Shift.

Come and join with us at this Royal Daughters Conference, let us rejoice together, feast together and hear what Father God has to say to us all.
