Session 1.“The Firestorm: Making Hope-filled Choices” -- I address the inevitable challenges our faith goes through and that at some point in our lives, our faith is often tested by a faith-shaking experience. (I weave in part of my own testimony of our journey with our son, a US Naval Academy graduate who is now in prison with a life sentence.) The scripture is from Daniel...and I emphasize that sometimes God delivers us from the heat of the storm, but "even if he does not," we can still choose unwavering faith.
Saturday, June 1 at 8:30 am (Breakfast & Lunch included)
Session 2. “Burning Bushes” -- This session addresses those "marker moments" in our lives when we are confronted with the voice and/or the power of God when we most need it and when we least expect it. The challenge is this--when life is confusing, look back on the "burning bush experiences" in your life and remember what God did. I will also discuss the importance of embers. They do their work of igniting new wood when new fuel is thrown on the fire, but in between those times they will bury themselves under the gray ashes and allow the fire to slowly burn itself deeper and deeper into their core. We see our frailties and limitations, but we also know that God loves, enjoys, delights in, and even celebrates our fellowship, as we develop enduring faith.
Session 3. “Unquenchable Faith” -- This session will deal with what happens when the flame of adversity comes face to face with the God of the Flame. I’ll discuss how to overcome fear, pierce the darkness, and reveal what happens when the light of the Shekinah glory of God illuminates, transforms, and changes the landscape of our lives, our families, and our churches into an unstoppable faith.
Session 4. “Growing a Faith that Impacts Others” -- This session is based on the seven ways Jesus impacted His disciples that reveal to us how we can pass unquenchable faith on to the next generation. It is a practical message that encourages women to live for something that will outlast their lives.
