About The Joy Conference

The Joy Conference is designed to spark spiritual renewal, infuse you with hope, and help you rediscover joy anew. Joy is a far more dynamic force than most of us realize. It has the power to reignite your passion for life and faith. It can free you to rise above endless demands as you become more content and thankful. It can change unchangeable circumstances and bring a peace rooted in the remarkable love of God.

Her books, including  Fight Back With Joy, and Taste and See: Discovering God Among Butchers, Bakers and Fresh Food Makersand their corresponding Bible studies, have sold over one million copies. Margaret lives in Utah with her husband, Leif, who pastors a local campus. She believes some of the best days are spent around a table with amazing food and friends. 

Lori Wilhite is the founder of Leading and Loving It — a ministry dedicated to equipping, connecting and impacting pastors’ wives and women in leadership. She is the author of Rise Up: Lessons from Ezra on Walking with Your Head Held High and My Name is Victorious: Find Strength, Freedom and Joy in Who You are Created to Be. Lori serves alongside her husband, Jud Wilhite, at Central Church in Las Vegas, NV. Together they love watching God change Sin City into Grace City. They have two hilarious and amazing kids, Emma and Ethan. She loves time with friends, reading, and crying during episodes of Antiques Roadshow.


Shannon Scott is a writer, speaker, and pastor to women and children at Church Of The City in Franklin, Tennessee. She’s written critically acclaimed curriculum for the children’s ministry divisions of Integrity Publishing and Lifeway Christian Resources. An avid baseball and college football fan, she  clings to the hope that her favorite baseball team, the Atlanta Braves, will repeat as World Series champions in her lifetime. When at home, she can be found with coffee (always topped with whip) candles, blankets, and a good book or Netflix marathon. Shannon and her husband Jeffrey have three children, Maggie (17), Jack (14), and Ali (12). Not to be forgotten are the Scott family pups, Nash and Loretta.
