Cultivating Contentment in an Instant Gratification World
Led by Vicki Lassiter
“I have learned to be content” implies a natural, unintentional state of discontentment. Isn’t that the state of us women? When we are young, kids, careers, or insecurities keep us awake at night. But then, when we are older, we reflect with fondness on the days we think we slept! When we are busy, we long for a break; when we get that desired break, we feel bored. Who can save us from this cycle of discontentment? Jesus, friends. Only Jesus.

Experiencing God in Crisis
Led by Sarah Nelson and Shelley Reeves

Sarah Nelson and Shelley Reeves share two personal testimonies that illustrate how they experienced God while enduring hardship and devastating loss. Their heartwarming testimonies depict real-life examples of how Scripture comes to life through the Holy Spirit to speak to us in our darkest circumstances. Their stories of love, prayer, healing, grief, and loss are intertwined and demonstrate how God cares and ministers to the brokenhearted. Their stories also bring to light how God can use our own difficulty to help others who may be navigating their own crisis.
