Main Speaker — Anita Renfroe
To celebrate 35 years of Reaching Women, we are excited to welcome Anita Renfroe as our main speaker for the 2013 Reaching Women Conference. Comedian and
author, Anita Renfroe became an overnight internet sensation when her YouTube
video of her singing everything a mother says to her children in a single day
to the tune of “The William Tell Overture” in just two minutes and fifty-five
seconds was viewed by millions. Renfroe was featured on morning and late night
entertainment and news programs and resulted in her becoming a comedy
contributor for Good Morning America.
her unique brand of estrogen flavored musical comedy and blend of sass and edge, Anita shares her slightly offbeat takes on All Things Female. Audiences at her comedy
concert tours, viewers of her TV appearances and those who have seen her countless videos on YouTube, would say
she just says what everyone is thinking, but won't say out loud.

DIDN’T WARN YOU: Kids, Carbs, and the Coming Hormonal Apocalypse. She has
been featured in The New York Times, Readers Digest, Women’s Day and The
Renfroe is wife to her hunka burnin’ love, John, and mother to three adult
children. When they are not standing at the luggage carousel in various
airports looking for their bags so she can put on clean clothes and get to the
next comedy concert, they reside in suburban Atlanta, where sweet tea is always
on the menu.

2013 Theme Verse
"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."

This conference is open to all women and teenage girls. You and your young children will benefit most if you can make other arrangements for them. Mothers with nursing infants are welcome to attend, but we do ask that they use the balcony seating as it is easier to slip out the back if necessary. The balcony offers excellent seating.
