The second annual Joy Comes in the Morning Women’s Conference will be held in Owensboro on March 15th and 16th at Rivertree Church. Jessica Willis Fisher, formerly of the Willis Clan, will be the keynote speaker Friday night.

“The Willis Family,” a reality show about their family of fourteen, ran on TLC for two seasons.

Growing up the eldest daughter in a controlling and abusive household, she performed with her family band until her departure in 2016 at the age of 23. 

Today, Fisher is a singer/songwriter, performing artist, speaker, and author who believes sharing one’s story with others will change the world.

Event organizer Laura Murphy says she is excited to bring Willis, the author of the book Unspeakable, to this conference. 

“I read her gripping story this past summer. What she endured was unthinkable. The hope and healing she shares is something I believe many women need to hear, so I reached out to her manager, hoping we could bring her to Owensboro.”

Murphy said Fisher’s first solo album, Brand New Day, and her first book, Unspeakable, both narrate her harrowing struggle to both articulate her childhood experience and find her authentic voice on the other side of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. She is described as a “passionate advocate for survivors.”

“When they called me and said she was available to speak at our conference, I was so excited,” Murphy said. “I believe this is exactly what the women who join us this weekend need to hear—by using your voice to share your testimony, others can find freedom, too.”

While the entire conference weekend is sold out, Friday-only tickets can be purchased here. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and Fisher will speak and perform at 7:00 p.m.
