Be brave, courageous and fearless!



Date: January 26 – 28, 2024

A women’s spiritual boutique event held on the water in Siesta Key, Florida!

“Deborah heard from God that this Advance is for women who have or are going through TRANSITIONS.”

Transitions from the death of a loved one, a career, relationship, financial or health change. If this is YOU then this ADVANCE is FOR YOU! If God is FOR us who can be against us?

This ADVANCE is for you if:

  • You are stuck, but ready to ARISE from the ashes!
  • Feel dull, worn out, and overwhelmed yet ready to SHINE for His glory!
  • Are tired of retreating and isolating, and ready to ADVANCE in your purpose!
  • If you want to sharpen your skills, talents, gifts, and faith-this is the conference for you!
You will be heard, known, and loved!


Friday Evening

Our ADVANCE will start at 4:00 pm at the designated cottage on the water. (Address sent to you after registration and waivers are signed.)
Space is limited, making this boutique event very special. Think about tall palm trees blowing gently in the wind, the sounds of turquoise ocean waves rolling in, feeling the sand between your toes, watching orange and yellow sunrises, pink and purple sunsets, with some coconuts and pineapples melting in your mouth! Oh, God is so good to us!
You are not a number to us! You will be heard and known!
You will meet new and old friends!
Friday evening will be our meet and greet with one session and dinner.



9 am – 5 pm

More sessions, with prayer times,  and discussion times. A very light breakfast, and lunch from the famous Anna’s Deli! Vegan and gluten free options will be available. Saturday evening we suggest you relax, have dinner with your new friends, and experience the Siesta Key village and sunset! We will make sure everyone is paired up with someone to go with.

Fun at Advance 2023!

Deborah provides a safe space for women to connect with each other, be vulnerable, and have a deeper level of self-reflection around who they are called to be.  It is obvious she is called to do this work and cares deeply about all who attend.  I felt the Holy Spirit in that space and within me, and I gained more clarity on the legacy He’s calling me to leave.  Deborah’s guest speakers shared their beautiful talents and helped us to realize ours.  Her Advance was well worth it in all ways and I’m thankful for the experience and more to come.

Wendy Roop

Executive Leadership Coach,

The safe and loving atmosphere at the Sunset Legacy Advance in 2023 was felt the minute we all arrived. Deborah knows how to set an agenda and flow that meets everyone where they are and guides them closer to God, to reveal His next steps. If you come, you will leave knowing Who you are in Christ as well as being a part of a brand new sisterhood, with life long friends.
