Gifts of Imperfection - September 14th

gifts of imperfectino

Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we’d no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, “What if I can’t keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn’t everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself?”

In her ten guideposts, Brown engages our minds, hearts, and spirits as she explores how we can cultivate the courage, compassion, and connection to wake up in the morning and think, “No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough,” and to go to bed at night thinking, “Yes, I am sometimes afraid, but I am also brave. And, yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable, but that doesn’t change the truth that I am worthy of love and belonging.”

Christ Was Born For This: An Advent Bible Study - November 30th

advent bible study


Join us this Advent season as we celebrate the nearness of our God, who stepped out of eternity and into time to bring us salvation. God sent a baby, His Son, to be our perfect Prophet, Priest, and King. In Jesus Christ, our Prophet became the message, our Priest became the sacrifice, and our King became the servant of all. The baby in the manger was Immanuel, God with us. Christ was born for this! We will follow She Reads Truth’s daily online study and meet weekly.

Thursdays, November 30th 9:00-10am [4 Weeks]

The Ultimate Journey - Launching August & September

What if you’re not really the way you’ve come to see yourself? As you travel the first phase of The Ultimate Journey, you’ll unpack the lies that have held you back, tripped you up, and even derailed you at times. Phase I is a safe harbor where you’ll unload excess cargo and baggage that have weighed you down for years. As you do this, you’ll be freed up to chart a new course that will lead you into an incredible love relationship with your Creator. This class is a personal journey where you will process through your life. Each group includes 3 participants and 2 facilitators, creating a safe, intimate environment to do the work of restoration and healing. Due to the personal nature of this class, attendance is mandatory for all sessions, and we encourage thoughtful consideration whether this is the right time to go through this process.

10 weeks

$225: $175 for the class; $50 for materials (ordered separately)

Important Note: Phase 1 has been a deeply transformative experience for hundreds of women and men. Because of this, Phase 1 consistently has a waiting list, and sessions often fill up in advance. If you are interested in taking Phase 1 at any time in the future, we strongly encourage you to complete and return the registration form. You will not be put on the waiting list until we have your completed registration form. Once you are on the waiting list, we will place you in a class as we have facilitators available. You would have the option to defer to the next session if openings do not match your availability.

The Ultimate Journey: Phase II

The world tells us we need to be self-reliant and in control. But what if you were created to be dependent upon someone far greater than yourself? What if the Living God, Creator of the universe, wants to be your source for everything? In this class, you will come to trust God with your life because you will know Him for who He is. As you live out this intimate, bonded relationship with your Creator, you will learn to draw everything you need from Him.

*Prior completion of Phase I is mandatory.

Monday nights starting June 12th Length: 11 Weeks

Time: 6:00 – 7:30 PM
Cost: $100 ($50 class fee; $50 for book)

The Ultimate Journey: Phase III

This is the third, and final, phase in the Ultimate Journey series.  In this class you will be provided with the practical tools that enable you to take the power of God beyond head knowledge and apply it to your everyday life. You will learn to draw from the life of Christ living in you for everything you need and for every situation you face. As you learn to live from the reality of His indwelling presence in you, you will experience His peace, joy, love and freedom.

*Prior completion of Phases I & II is mandatory.
