When & Where
Pearls and Grace
Sibi Riffer is the founder of Pearls and Grace Ministries and the creative heart behind The Pearl Event Christian Women's Conference. She is the author of the inspirational blog entitled 'Pearls and Grace', where she has used her platform to encourage women and share God's word over the last five years. She is a bible study teacher turned Christian conference speaker and has been sharing God's word since 2004. During the outreach of hosting Pearl Events, Sibi communicates her own personal testimony of hope and couples it with using biblically sound scripture. She weaves the two together while also including the metaphor of how a pearl is formed in the natural, in an attempt to offer HOPE to women of all ages and backgrounds.
Sibi's two favorite words in the bible are "But God." These life changing words are found over and over again in God's amazing word. Sibi's testimony is a "But God" testimony that she uses to bring encouragement to the broken hearted, as well as to point others to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, the ultimate pearl of great price.
Sibi is the Mother of six pearls and has been parenting for more than 23 years. She has been married for almost 13 years to her sweet man, Eric and considers her roles as mother and wife her greatest gifts in life.
Charity (“Cha Cha”) Jones, is drawn to all things pretty and sparkly, drinker of (too) much coffee, lover and student of God, redeemed rebel, hair stylist, encouraging friend, comfort food maker, reluctant cleaner, homeschool teacher, Bible curriculum developer, DIYer, thrifty shopper, BIG dreamer, prayer warrior and a recovering control freak, just to name a few. Above all, she is most passionate about pursuing God. Jesus is the love of her life and her Great Sustainer.

Michaela McLaird is a gifted songwriter and singer and will be open the event by leading us in worship in the morning session.
Michaela grew up in a family that placed a high value on worship. Though formally trained on the piano, she absorbed much by osmosis as she grew up surrounded by influential worship leaders and songwriters. In 2008, she enrolled in the school of ministry at Bethel Church in Redding, California, and after a year leading worship under the guidance of Brian and Jenn Johnson, Michaela returned to her home church in Tennessee to serve on the worship team. She is a passionate and anointed worship leader having spent years in the secret place - alone with God and the piano. She has recently released her first album, The Morning Sun on Itunes.
