ALAMOSA — “Perfect Love” is theme of the 33rd Annual Southern Colorado Women’s Conference scheduled for Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 at Calvary Bible Chapel, 7160 Brush Lane. The featured speaker will be international speaker and best-selling author Janet Perez-Settles (formerly Eckles) from Orlando, Fla. The theme text for this year’s conference is I John 4:18 : “Perfect Love Casts Out Fear.”
Perez-Settles was born in Bolivia and came to the United States when she was 12. She has been called “a powerhouse of motivation” as she empowers 1,000’s to rise above any setbacks.
Her key-note messages are drawn from her four inspirational books, including her Amazon best-selling No. 1 “Simply Salsa” where she teaches the simplicity of finding joy even in the midst of chaos.
Her insights were published in the Los Angeles Times and New York Daily News. Her writings appear in 32 “Chicken Soup for the Soul” best-selling titles, Guidepost Magazine and dozens of anthologies and hundreds of magazine articles. Her profound experiences continue to capture the media.
In addition to being featured on the cover of Hispanic Woman magazine, she was interviewed on Fox 35 News, affiliate “Despierta America”, 700 Club, Focus on the Family and on dozens of radio and TV networks. Her most valued reward is God’s grace. It is His grace that brings her before audiences like you so you can witness proof of God’s victorious triumph in the darkest times.
The music will be by singer-songwriter Denise Chaney, who was raised in Monte Vista, where she met and married her husband, Jarrett. Her parents are Jerry and Betty Cochran. Denise and Jarrett now reside in Pagosa Springs with their son Jackson.
She studied Interior Design and Music at Olivet Nazarene University in Illinois and came back to the San Juan Mountains after graduation. You will truly be blessed by her music. You can learn more about her work at DeniseChaneyMusic.com.
