TEXARKANA, Ark. -- "Broken But I'm On My Way," an annual local women's ministry conference organized and hosted by Lady Kyra Hatton, is scheduled for Oct. 1 at New Birth Spirit Filled Ministries.

The conference will feature guests Prophetess Trica Butcher of Kingdom Worship Connection Church in Dallas; mistress of ceremonies Prophetess Sandra Warren; exhorters Apostle Jerrie Harvey and Lady Ashley Hatton; and special testimony by Taiwana Nailon. Minister Jessika Titus-Ogden will serve as intercessor, and minister Rickela Williams and Adrienne Brown will lead the ministry of dance.

"It is basically people coming together who have been abandoned, broken or abused," Hatton said of the conference. "It's for people who just need a fresh start in life. It's for somebody who has been seeking God but doesn't know how to find him. Somebody who wants to give their life to God, but doesn't know how. This is the perfect setting for it."

The conference is geared toward women, but men are also welcome. Attendance is free, and guests will receive a complimentary gift bag and raffle ticket to win prizes for attending.

"Everyone will get a coupon from On the Border and El Chico, a daily journal that says 'I Got This,' a pen, a mirror and a bracelet," Hatton said. "Even if they don't win something, they are going to leave with something. You still get a token of my love for showing up."

Businesses such as Walmart, Longhorn Steakhouse, Chicken Express, Golden Corral, Cracker Barrel, Mighty Crab, Red Lobster, Courtyard by Marriott and Hilton Garden Inn also donated to this year's conference.

"People that I know locally that have started businesses have donated too," Hatton said. "It's major for me."

This is the fourth year Hatton has put the conference. She began in 2017 with the intention of helping other women who have been struggling in life.

"I am an encourager," Hatton said. "I have a women's ministry, and basically I just encourage them, embrace them, empower them and enlighten them."

The conference theme is "It Had to Happen."

"Everything that you've gone through in your life, you had to go through because it helped build you into who you are today," she said. "It equips you for your next level. It helps strengthen you . Never look at it like a mistake, look at it like a lesson."

Hatton was raised by her grandmother, Lady Alvina Preethe, who is owner and pastor of New Birth Spirit Filled Ministries.

"She started this ministry from the ground up," Hatton said.

Preethe opened the church in 2004, and for the last 18 years Hatton has been an active member. She currently is a worship leader.

"There's so many great things I could say about Kyra," Preethe said. "She's smart, gifted, intelligent and she brings so much joy to my life."

In addition to her ministry through the church, Hatton also runs a Facebook page, where she makes motivational and uplifting posts, extending her message and support to others.

"If I can reach one soul a day, I think God is pleased," Hatton said.

The conference starts at 11:30 a.m.

(New Birth Spirit Filled Ministries is at 622 Ferguson St., Texarkana, Arkansas. Kyra Hatton can be contacted through her Facebook page -- Broken But I'm On My Way.)
