Ignite Your Legacy Girls Conference

"Ignite Your Legacy Girls Conference" was launched by Shelbi (Carpenter) Korzeniewski in memory of her younger sister, 15 year old Skylar Carpenter who ran into Heaven
February 17, 2011.  Skylar had a heart for Jesus and wanted to share His love with others to help 'change the world.'

It is a conference for girls ages 10-18.  The event is to remind all young ladies to recognize their value, as special individuals who are created to have a unique and divine purpose.  We want young ladies to leave this conference motivated to leave a legacy that IGNITES & INSPIRES others to be a follower of Jesus and to help 'change the world
