Esthers Rising
Live in Person & Virtually Online
Branson, MO

OCTOBER 27-29, 2022


“Don’t think for a moment that because you’re in the palace you will escape when all other Jews are killed. If you keep quiet at a time like this, deliverance and relief for the Jews will arise from some other place, but you and your relatives will die. Who knows if perhaps you were made queen for just such a time as this?” (Esther 4:13-14 NLT)


The warrior women of God have been preparing for this day for generations; the King of Kings chose them before time began. Esthers Rising Conference exists to teach, impart, and activate those who know they were created “For Such a Time as This.” Through worship, teaching, discussion, and prayer, each woman will leave filled with courage, strength, and excitement for their future. This event will provide Hope, Health, and Healing. Remember, perhaps you were brought into the Kingdom to bestow a Crown of Beauty instead of Ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair at “Such a Time as This.”

Esthers Hands

What does it mean to be prepared “For Such a Time as This”?

Just like Queen Esther, God has given each of us opportunities to influence our time – be it a job, position, resources, or education. God has put you where you are right now for a reason – and we need the courage and wisdom to see that reason and to walk in it.

 “For Such a Time as This” involves so much more than one pivotal moment – every valley, trial, and triumph has been preparing you to have the courage and wisdom you need for these days.

Learn from extraordinary women as they share how they recognized and said “yes” to God’s calling – and are now living their personal Esther stories as they fight on the frontlines of the battlefield.  

You will leave activated, prayed for, and given tools to step out and BE the Esther you were created to be…

Move from Victim to Victory

Being crowned

Experience Spirit-led worship, powerful impartation prayer, and inspired teaching.
Enjoy a time of rest to reflect on whom God created you to be.
Gain practical and in-depth insight from many experts from around the country.

Conference at The Mansion in Branson, MO


You – heads of homes, businesswomen, students, etc. – want to discover and rise up in the path God created for you.
You have walked through the valley and across the mountaintop and know that God has prepared you.
You have been prepared for this time and want to connect with others stepping out.
You long for direction from the Lord on what you are called to do.
You are ready to find the resources, connections, and friends you need.

busyness, and connect with God, Self, and Others.

Strength of the Queen

This can be rough territory – to be a woman, to be a Christian, to want to bring morality to the culture. Come together and realize the fear of God is all that matters and have other women there behind you who will hold you up instead of knock you down.
Find out who God made you be and what He has in store for you.
Hear speakers share their personal journey that brought them here for such a time as this – who have walked the journey and can be your guide. 
Leave empowered to change the world around you:
Discover or refine your path.
Create 1-year, 3-year, and 7-year goals.
Write down 3 connections. 
Receive a full recording of the event to view anytime at your leisure

Jill is a passionate advocate of mental health and wellness. She has years of experience in event planning and has decided to use her skills towards creating her own boutique company, Brave Hearts Workshops. As a clinician, I love doing workshops and retreats but do not enjoy doing the planning outside of the clinical content. This is where Jill’s skill set is so very valuable. Partnering will Brave Hearts allows me to do what I love to do best and allows Jill to do the same. If you have a strong following but need support with event site planning, food, etc. I recommend partnering with Brave Hearts.

Jill is an amazing leader and the HOPE.HEALTH. & HEALING virtual event I attended in March 2021 was so inspiring. Her own story is incredible as well as the other speakers that also shared their personal stories. Everyone that spoke was real, raw and from the heart. It is so awesome as well as heartwarming to be connected to so many faith-based thought leaders, to affirm that I am on the right path in sharing my own message. Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of your wonderful group!

I had the privilege to join the Hope, Health & Healing online webinar on Friday, March 12th. Wow! I was so touched by each of the speaker’s stories that they shared in the webinar. Hearing their stories of adversity in their lives and how they overcame these trials was just inspiring for me. I was ready to give in to the struggles that I have been dealing with in my life until I heard the wisdom of these wonderful women who shared how they overcame their obstacles in life. They talked about never giving up on your dreams because someday you will achieve them by pressing forward. Their words have helped me to press on in my own journey. Thank you, Jill Jacobs Reynolds, for putting this wonderful webinar together and for inviting me to join and listen to stories of hope and faith! I look forward to attending many more future events that you will offer.

The event was outstanding and majestical. The music interludes helped integrated experience. Breakout rooms were flash communities: professional, at the same time personal. I was able to heal a memory that happened when I was 9 years old. Very uplifting to forgive forward, backward, and inside. Really good job, Jill.

Brave Heart Workshops. Jill kept encouraging me to attend a weekend retreat. I had some trepidation, not fully knowing what it was about. In addition, I was not in a place where I had enough money to go. Jill provided me a partial scholarship that allowed me to go. The weekend was such a breakthrough - truly Life Changing! For all ages - I am in my 50’s, and my healing journey catapulted onto an entirely new & powerful path. Colleen O

Last July, I had the pleasure of attending one of the Brave Heart Workshop retreats held in Nashville, Tennessee. The organizer was Jill Reynolds. The facilitator was Dr. Laura Wood. It was a great experience. I got to experience Drama Therapy. It was an unforgettable experience, truly. Not only did I get a chance to visit Nashville, the city of music, but also, and more importantly, I got to experience Drama Therapy and heal my childhood traumas. Jill was super responsible and caring. She helped to arrange hotels, flights, transportation, meals and took us to concerts. She had an eye to discover talents. Because Dr. Wood was one of the most intuitive and skilled therapists as I discovered over the course of the weekend. The healing work was transformative and fun at the same time. The combination of performance and healing really made it much less intimidating and more spontaneous. I truly enjoyed the workshop and recommends it to anyone who has an interest in personal healing or psychology in general.

Freeing…..I have attended two Brave Heart Workshops — an incredible experience both times. Jill has so much experience with different modalities of personal wellness, which makes her retreats so successful. I have personally enjoyed the drama therapy workshop weekends- which have brought much clarity and freedom to my own journey. Jill has a heart and a passion for wellness in body, mind, and spirit, coupled with the skills to make these workshops run efficiently. She balances therapeutic story and bodywork with time and space for effective rest, reflection, and rejuvenation.

Both Brave Heart Workshops I attended were great experiences for me, opening a door to some issues from my past I was unaware of before. It was challenging, but one of the most enlightening opportunities of my life! I discovered the root of my trauma and was able to take home what I learned in the workshop and fully heal, conquer my fears, and confront major obstacles in my life. I learned about my strength, my desires, my needs, and my true authentic self. I am now a social worker and therapist practicing from a place of solidarity, clarity, and a grounded foundation. I found my voice and my freedom. I feel so blessed, grateful, inspired, and hopeful that others can do the same through Jill’s workshops.

When Jill first encouraged me to attend a Brave Heart retreat my automatic response was that of anxiety and the belief this concept was not in the parameters of my comfort zone. As I witnessed Jill‘s passion and anticipation of the upcoming retreat and more information was presented I reconsidered. Maybe that is what I must do- step outside the parameters of my comfort zone. I began to feel that was exactly what I needed to do in order to pursue a different avenue of healing trauma - one I hadn’t explored before- drama therapy. The idea of getting up in front of a group of people and working through my issues was frightening at first. Immediately there was a camaraderie with the other women. I felt completely safe and comfortable sharing parts of my story. I was so moved by the kindness, compassion, and support that my inhibition dissipated being in such an accepting environment. I had a sense of belonging and felt the freedom to open up in ways I have never imagined before. The atmosphere was so comfortable relaxed and welcoming. I felt such a privilege to have Dr. Laura Wood as a facilitator. Both Dr. Wood and Jill are gifted communicators with an extraordinary level of compassion and intuitive caring that provided me a process to move toward healing while also feeling safe. That experience was profound for me. The next year there was no hesitation to sign up. I was excited about continuing to unravel the layers of trauma. Being at the retreat enabled me to take my health and wellness to a higher level and equip me to empower myself to make some powerful changes in my life. I totally endorse the professionalism and integrity of Jill Reynolds. With her depth of concern and care for others' wellness, she brings a high level of experience to succeed in the event she plans.
