WOMEN, WINE, AND THE WORD FAQ’s
WHAT IS WOMEN, WINE, AND THE WORD?
We are a welcoming community for all women. Regardless of your faith, or if you have uncertain faith, we invite you to experience the Word of God through teaching, sharing, and conversation.

HOW IS WOMEN, WINE, AND THE WORD DIFFERENT?
We strive to always be like a girls’ night out with a purpose. Regardless if you are looking around our website or social media sites, or if you are at one of our events, Women, Wine, and The Word is fun and relaxing as well as inspiring and real. Laugh and maybe even shed a tear as God’s truth flows into your life in a modern, accepting, and refreshing way.
BUT WHY AT A WINERY?
Wineries and other like-venues offer a beautiful, non-intimidating, open surrounding where you don’t have to bump elbows with your neighbor, and our goal is to be open and welcoming to all. At most of our 3-hour events, we offer 2 drink tickets as part of a ticket purchase that a guest can use for wine or any non-alcohol beverage always offered. We never encourage over-drinking, as we believe the Bible is clear that drunkenness is a sin, and we share this message before the start of every event with our guests. We want you to enjoy the atmosphere, relax, and just be you.
Mandy can also speak at your next private event, women’s conference, and so on. Contact us for any speaking requests you may have!
WHO IS MANDY SULLIVAN?
Mandy is a mother, 2nd-time wife, singer, and speaker who has a passionate love for Jesus. With almost 20 years in various ministries and a life full of stories, Mandy is eager to share a lot of laughter, some sadness, and real Biblical teachings in a beautiful atmosphere with you.
WHAT ARE THESE EVENTS ABOUT?
Our events are about you and your girlfriends having a night away from chaos and coming to enjoy a glass of wine, appetizers, often live contemporary Christian music, and conversation with a focus on Biblical teachings in the perspective of today’s busy woman.
WHAT IF I CAN’T GET TO AN EVENT?
Having events is just a part of what we do and plan to do with our goals in the future. As we continue to grow, we have more opportunities to reach out in different ways and to further locations. Please like and follow our Facebook page where we frequently share a prayer, thought, or inspiration where you are welcome to share your own thoughts.
Join us, almost every Monday night on ‘Facebook Live’ at 9:00PM CST, where Mandy might talk about a Bible verse, an inspiration, do an interview, or even provide some live music. Occasionally we will present a ‘Facebook Live’ from a fun or inspiring location as well! These events are typically only a half hour long, as we know you’re busy!
WHAT CHURCH ARE YOU AFFILIATED WITH?
While Mandy is very involved with the church she works at, Women, Wine, and The Word is not associated with any church or other religious organization. Women, Wine, and The Word is our own entity and we simply welcome all women!
DO YOU HAVE A BELIEF OR FAITH STATEMENT?
Absolutely! Women, Wine, and The Word believes in God the Father, God The Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We believe that all people are welcome into the family of our Lord, and when someone confesses their sin and accepts Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, that one receives salvation out of God’s unbelievable grace. This love and acceptance is open to all people, and Women, Wine, and The Word accepts all women of faith or even uncertain faith who are curious and want to learn. God never stops running after all people to know Him and accept Him as their savior.
DO I HAVE TO SHARE?
That is totally up to you! We will have social time, breaks, often live entertainment, and especially talks by Mandy. And we will likely have table conversations and activities as well where you are welcome to share your thoughts and feelings, or you are welcome to just listen.
WHAT’S IN THE FUTURE?
With your help, our goal is to grow our social media communities, and to have a women’s event at minimum once a month at a winery or other relaxing, beautiful, and fun location. Each event will be on a new subject, so check back often via our website, our Facebook page, or joining our newsletter. If there is a subject that you are struggling with or is close to your heart, please let us know and we will consider it for a future event!
DARN IT, WHY ARE THE EVENTS FAR FROM WHERE I LIVE?
We will come to where women are. As our community grows, so will our opportunities to come to a venue near you. Where do you want our next event to be?
Thank you for your support!
