This six-week study, by Melissa Spoelstra, examines God’s words of instruction to His wayward people through the prophet Jeremiah, and provides women six guidelines for intentional living to overcome fear, worry, and doubt as they surrender their will to God’s and put their hope in Him alone, to inspire all women to dare to hope, remembering that God is rich in mercy and love and has good plans for us.
Have you wondered what it is that God wants from you? Does He want obedience to a set of rules, sacrificial giving, service through good works? What God really wants is a relationship with you. Using Jesus’ description of the Good Shepherd in John Chapter 10 we will explore the relationship God is calling us to and what it means to respond to His call.
The short book of Colossians is a perfect place to explore various ways of studying Scripture for ourselves. As a result we will discover more about the Christ who is over all creation – visible and invisible – which will inspire us to participate in His death, resurrection and fullness.
When we choose vulnerability we are inevitably going to stumble and fall. Rising Strong is about people who whole-heartedly get back up and go another round in big and small ways. When our intentions and actions are guided by our belief in our interconnectedness and love our everyday experiences can be spiritual practices, because they cultivate awareness. It’s the daily awareness of dissonance between the story actually happening in the story we are telling ourselves.

For seven months Jen Hatmaker and her family identified seven areas of excess, and made seven simple choices to fight back against the modern-day diseases of greed, materialism, and overindulgence. This study will explore the discovery of a greatly increased God, a call toward Christ-like simplicity and generosity that transcends social experiment to become a radically better existence.
