Growing a Mother’s Heart Bible Study, spring 2022

Let’s come together to laugh as we study God’s Word. As moms, we want the best for our children and desire to be wonderful moms. In the messiness of life, sometimes we are thankful we get food on the table and some clean clothes folded. We treasure the hugs, happy faces, and darling comments from our little ones and rejoice when our children grow and succeed in life. We discover that once a mom, always a mom, whether our children have graduated to heaven or simply left home. With a study guide we can engage in small group studies for busy moms that are mnageable, easy to do, and equip us with practical tips that coordinate with scriptures.

 

Growing a Peaceful Heart, Fall 2022

Come alongside women who have overcome strife to be at peace and help foster peace.
