Safe, Healthy, Empowered
In the world of Christian events and conferences, you can
ﬁ nd just about anything and everything for youth… and
women… separately. But rarely will you ﬁ nd an event
created for the purpose of bringing together mothers and
daughters to celebrate their identity in Christ as women
together. SHE is such an event. This cross-generational
gathering celebrates womanhood in every season.
Founded by Rebecca St. James out of her own journey as a
woman and her desire to help others celebrate the beauty
of being a daughter of Christ, SHE is now one of the most
recognized and life-changing events going. First a book
and now an event for all ages, Rebecca shares more about
the concept and purpose behind SHE.
CCM: How did the concept for SHE come about?
ST. JAMES: The concept of the book happened through my
struggle as a woman in the areas of beauty and purity. I
was longing for a mentor and I thought that because I’ve
struggled, others probably do too. When the book came
out I was in my early 20s and felt very alone. Being in the
spotlight the comparison game and feeling of inadequacy
is intensiﬁ ed.
CCM: So when did the book become an event?
ST. JAMES: About seven years ago, Evie asked me to sing
with her. She had been my mentor for a while and there
was a click that happened. My dad saw this profound
moment when we sang together and he had the concept
of uniting the book and a live show.
CCM: SHE stands for Safe, Healthy, Empowered. What
does safety mean?
ST. JAMES: I know that every woman struggles with
insecurities to a certain level. Safety is the opposite of
insecurity. When we know who we are in God… when we
have that love relationship with God and it’s not based on
our performance, that’s the foundation of everything.
