I Am NOT Ashamed: Finding Freedom from Shame and Guilt
We all make mistakes. But, what happens when we believe that we ARE a mistake? Too many women suffer the heavy weight of condemnation because of where they’ve come from, what they’ve been through or something that they’ve done. We’ll use God’s Word to diagnose and to demolish four different kinds of shame. As women, we’ll follow God’s heart and scripture’s footprint toward practical steps so that we can walk in the freedom of forgiveness in Christ. (Theme: Identity in Christ/Freedom from Shame/Guilt)
Hungry No More: Surrendering ourselves to the only ONE that satisfies!
Our culture over-consumes everything but God! We over-eat, over-spend, over-worry and most of us probably over-do social media. Yet, we’re starved for peace, hope and joy. What could happen if God’s daughters truly hungered for the gifts only God can provide? We’ll talk about how surrender weans us of the things that junk up our hearts, minds, bodies and souls. Barb will fill your spiritual plate with three daily opportunities to satisfy your soul in Christ! (Theme: Spiritual Discipline/Discipleship)
Becoming a Woman that C.A.R.E.S.
Are you the kind of woman who puts everyone else first? If so, you’re not alone! Are you tired of carrying around all of the guilt that comes with being a woman? In this talk, we’ll look at the five areas of caring for ourselves in a way that glorifies God, honors us and blesses our lives. (Theme: Spiritual Growth & Personal Development)
Overcoming Labels to Live Our Legacy
How many of us carry baggage from the past that keeps us from having hope for the future? We’ll look at the story of Rahab and discover how God transformed her destiny. There are three keys from her story that will help us escape the labels that lie to us and unlock God’s legacy for our lives. (Theme: Identity in Christ & Forgiveness)
Mirror, Mirror: Seeing Yourself as God Sees You
Does God care if you look in the mirror and hate what you see? Yes! Poor body image is the #1 driver of shame in women, including Christian women. We’ll use God’s Word to discover God’s beautiful truth about us – both inside and out! There are three biblical keys to help us win our ugly struggle with beauty once and for all! (Theme: Identity in Christ)
