If you feel like the most popular book ever is too confusing, too long, or too irrelevant – then it’s past time for a proper introduction! Unless you already have too much hope, freedom, guidance, inner strength, and love in your life, it’s time to get the most out of this life-changing word of God!

Growing Through Life

It’s common to dwell on something that’s bothering us or replay it over and over in our mind. Or, we may try to push it out of our thoughts completely and ignore it. But there’s more we can learn from these events! We’ll share two proven tools to help us understand and cope with the significant things that happen to us on a daily and weekly basis. However, these tools are more than just coping strategies. They are also a way to grow in faith and learn what God is telling and teaching us along the way!

Resilience – Using Your Pain As A Chisel To Free Your Authentic Self.

We use a mix of video speakers, motivation, and other sources to present a compelling view of Resilience! How do we frame each challenge? How do we talk about it, feel about it – and what do we do about it? How can pain and adversity “free our authentic self” and become a valuable part of our faith and recovery walks?

What forgiveness is and is not, what scripture says about it, why it’s important, learning from it, and practicing it regularly – including in this workshop!

We’ll share a mix of video, teaching, scripture, tips, and practice, to help anyone immediately change to a more positive and peaceful perspective – and keep it that way!
