A gifted and anointed woman of God, Sister Dew is blessed with the unique ability to connect to women from all walks of life.  She uses her God-given spiritual gifts of exhortation, teaching, and wisdom to bless women through personal mentoring, local church workshops, seminars, retreats, and conventions.   A woman of few words and a quiet spirit, she believes that (1) love is an action word and (2) the power of Christianity is demonstrated best through the walk and not the talk.  Her desire is to see Christian women exemplify the Titus 2 woman (Titus 2:3-5) by pouring the good things of God into the lives of one another.  

Sister Dew is passionate about the bond, strength, and power of united Christian sisterhood. She is Founder and Executive Director of Sisters For Sisters (www.sistersforsisters.net), a national women’s ministry established in 2001.  Through this conference Sister Dew has inspired and encouraged hundreds of women to embrace spiritual change and live more fulfilling lives with and through Christ.  Her vision for the conference is to ensure that, "Every sister will be a sister and every sister will have a sister, so that no sister will stand alone."  Her life verse and philosophy is Proverbs 27:17, "As iron sharpeneth iron, so one man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend."
