Women’s Bible Study – Laura Daniel & Dana Harrelson

Laura Daniel will begin a new women's Bible study call "Breathe: Making Room for Sabbath" by Priscilla Shirer.  It is a 5-week study starting April 8th at 4:00 pm in the Parlor.  Books are $10.

One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to cease from all the activities and just breathe.  We are in bondage to busyness.  We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us.  By neglecting time for tranquility, serenity, and repose, we limit our Christlikeness and miss out on some of God’s greatest gifts.  In the Old Testament, Sabbath was given to the Israelites as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today.  If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted, then the concept of Sabbath will change your life.

God is the path to living boldly, bravely, and beautifully and we are challenged to let go of our weaknesses and trade them for God's strengths.  The book is filled with biblical depth, relatable stories, and practical strategies.  It is a declaration of truth and freedom for every battle-worn believer. Each chapter has a Bible Study Guide intended to take you deeper into God's Word to discover more about how to take hold of the faith you long for.
