Kellie Macy, widow of professional world champion bull rider Lane Frost, used horse tiedowns Saturday to illustrate the bondage women can suffer.
"God can release the tiedowns in your life," she said, speaking after an hour of praise and worship in the sanctuary of Highland Baptist Church for Lubbock's first Western Women's Conference.
"We're going to learn how to lay some stuff down today," Macy told the 42 women participating in the conference.
The horsewoman from Post lives on a ranch with her husband Mike and their two young children, Aaron and Brogan.
She spoke about her life with Frost and said they got married for the wrong reasons: because they were in rodeos together and because their relationship wasn't pure.
She told about how the couple was unequally yoked as newlyweds, but after a series of affairs and separations, Frost became a Christian.
"All the goals he had set he had accomplished by the time he was 23," she said. "But he still didn't feel fulfilled."
Macy said that a third of the movie "8 Seconds," which chronicles Frost's short career, was true.
"His mom and I really wanted to have his getting saved in there," Macy said, disappointed Frost's conversion wasn't documented.
Afternoon breakout sessions led by six women included one titled "The God Who is Enough" by Cooper High School teacher Tobi McMillan and "It Starts in the Heart" by Aimee Fisher, a Lubbock Senior Independent Beauty Consultant for Mary Kay Cosmetics.
"I am here because my goal is to enrich other women's lives," Fisher said.
Sharon Rowley, who said she had an abusive father, spoke about freedom.
Country gospel's four-time International Female Vocalist of the Year Suzy Gayle performed.
The conference, only the second hosted by Western Essential Ministries, was sponsored by Lowe's and St. Clair Orthodontics.
Missionary and organizer Melissa Lamb of Portales, N.M, said Western Essential focuses on essential faith among the things vital to a western way of life: spurs, a good horse and land.
Two additional women's conferences will be held this summer; one in Moriarty, N.M., and one in Midland. In addition, a teenage girls' conference is planned for the fall.
"A lot of people don't know what we are or what to expect," Lamb said. "We wanted an event for women that would have a cozy atmosphere, instead of a coliseum with 3,000 women."
Thanks for posting this article. It's really funny because when I used to junior rodeo there was a cute little girl in the 8 and under that was so tiny named Brogan Macy. I never knew her Mom was Kellie Kyle!
