Sorry, for the late notice on this...my church, Grace Evangelical Free, in Jefferson City, is doing a bible study (for women) on 1000 Gifts every Monday evening at 6:30 for the next 5 weeks (from 2/17 thru 3/24). We would love to have any woman join us for this study. The following information is taken directly from the website...
“How,” bestselling author Ann Voskamp wondered, “do we find joy in the midst of deadlines, debt, drama, and daily duties?” When your days are filled with the mundane, disappointment, or even darkness, how can you break the bondage of self-hatred and fear that has white-knuckle control on your life and instead embrace the everyday blessings that will immerse you in Christ’s fullness? How can you live your life with a heart overflowing with delight?
In this five-session, video-based study, Ann encourages participants to take on the life-changing discipline of journaling God’s gifts—to really look at life and find the good in it. It’s only in this expressing of gratitude for the life we already have, that we discover the life we’ve always wanted … a life we can take, give thanks for, and break for others. And only then can we come to feel and know the impossible right down in our bones: we are wildly loved—by God.
Embark on this personal, honest and fresh exploration of what it means to be deeply fulfilled, wholly happy, and finally fully alive.
You can go to the website http://onethousandgifts.com/get-the-group-study to see a trailer from the author, or even to see the entire first session. Please RSVP as soon as possible so we have an idea of how many books we'll need. If you need to reach me, call me at[masked] (no texts please) or you can send me an email through the meetup site. I'm not sure what the cost of the book/study guide will be, but please don't let the cost factor prevent you from joining us.
