🌿 March - Undaunted

Zinc Cafe and Market

Author - Christine Caine Title - Undaunted: Daring To Do What God Calls You To Do Christine Caine awakens the reader to how God works in us in order to work through us.

🌿 May - Men Are Like Waffles - Women Are Like Spaghetti

Zinc Cafe and Market

Authors - Bill and Pam Farrel Title - Men Are Like Waffles Women Are Like Spaghetti Despite the frustration, the vast majority of us have an undeniable desire to have great relationships with the opposite sex. We want both male and female friends, we want successful business relationships with both men and women, and we want marriages that are happy and harmonious. That is why so many of our decisions are affected by how the opposite sex will respond. It is possible to make too much out of the differences between men and women, but it is also possible to make the opposite mistake. If you want to have relationships that add to your life rather than make you exhausted, it seems to us that the place to start is with an understanding of the uniqueness each gender brings to the relationship. • What we'll do 😃 Join us for brunch and an engaging discussion • Important to know ✅ Space is limited.

🌿She Rises 2019 Conference

Saban Theatre

• What we'll do 😃 Ladies, join us for a weekend of empowerment She Rises Conference gathers women of all ages and backgrounds and from all over the world. The gathering started as GodChicks and has grown from a mere handful to thousands who come together to be inspired, to learn, to worship, to laugh, throw confetti…eat chocolate and drink coffee She Rises is more than a conference, it is a gathering and community of everyday women walking tall and free, loving God, their communities and each other. At the center is the knowledge that we are loved and valued by God, that we are entrusted with this moment in history, and that we are stronger together Hosted by Holly Wagner. Holly is passionate about seeing women live out their God-designed life, and loves hosting She Rises!
