Workshops

[A] Faith and Finances This workshop aims to teach Biblical principles for managing our finances, avoiding overspending and credit abuse, and provide biblical insight into fiscal responsibility and accountability. [B] Evangelism: It's Time to Tell In Matthew 28:18-20 Jesus gave a personal directive to share the Gospel. Do you long to carry out this "Great Commission", but aren't sure how? Have you ever reflected on missed opportunities to witness to others and wanted a "do-over"? Learn effective ways to evangelize and witness to others on a real and personal level. [C] Sex, Romance and the Glory of God Revolutionize your romantic relationship with your husband and experience the deep emotional, sexual, and spiritual connection that God created to be enjoyed in marriage. [D] If Only She Knew Sometimes a woman looks at the man she married and wonders Who is this man? What motivates him? Why isnt he more responsive to my needs? Has he changed or did I just not understand him in the first place? This workshop will explain a mans deepest needs, show women how to meet those needs and give simple steps to strengthen any marriage. [E] The Sacred Romance God has wooed us with a life filled with unparalleled beauty, intriguing relationships and wonderful adventures. But we often reject his advances in order to seek after any number of lovers who are far more tame. Be encouraged to return to the intimacy, beauty and adventure of life with God. [F] Fit for the Kingdom Change the way you think and feel about your body. Learn spiritual and physical principals to begin living a healthy lifestyle. Whether your goal is weight loss, to live a more healthful life, or to get a fresh perspective on your appearance - this workshop will discuss ideas and detailed plans to help you reach your objective. [G] Understanding Men from a Mans Perspective Whether single or married, we all have had questions about what men really think about life, love, relationships, intimacy, and commitment. Improve your understanding and communication with men by acknowledging mutual differences in our needs, desires, thoughts and behaviors - from a mans perspective. [H] God and Girlfriends Many women are asking God for encouragement, maybe the answer to that prayer is a friend. Understand why women might be intimidated by friendship and the benefits of walking through life with a friend. [I] Confessions of a Frazzled Mom Each day you promise yourself you wont yell at the kids. But once the whining, the complaining, the stress of getting everyone ready and to school on time raises stress levels it sends you over the edge. Go from being a frazzled mom to an uncommon calm in the midst of chaos in a world full of pressure. [J] Hurry Up and Wait You pray; you ask; you anticipate Gods answer and He tells you to Wait. Waiting for God to come through on a prayer request can be hard. However, in the wait God teaches us many lessons. Find hope in the difficulty of waiting, and see how waiting NOW can be beneficial to our FUTURE. [K] Connecting with God in a Distracting World Do you struggle with how to experience the reality of a living God in the midst of your everyday life? Knowing and praying Gods Word is the key to a rich, authentic, and powerful relationship with Him. Learn to build a foundation of prayer by looking inward toward your heart, upward toward God, and outward toward others.

Workshops

[L] Love Like Youve Never Been Hurt A healing, helping and hopeful workshop encouraging women who have experienced hurt in the past, to bravely take the risk to trust Gods good heart and love again. [M] Running Nowhere in Every Direction How does one balance family, careers, motherhood, marriage, ministry/service, as well as continuing to develop our relationship with God? No matter what responsibilities you carry, you can learn to reduce stress, find peace and enjoyment for becoming a well-balanced woman. [N] When It Pours, He Reigns When dealing with loss, relationships, finances, and personal instability we feel that life is about to push us over the edge. However, when feelings of hopelessness are strong, our desire for Gods power and strength must be stronger! [O] Travel Light: Find Peace Through Letting Go An unforgiving heart has the power to consume all aspects of our lives, distort our sense of purpose, and destroy our relationship with God. Only when we learn to forgive others and ourselves can we truly receive forgiveness from God. [P] When Children Make Poor Choices Learning to lovingly guide them back to God to experience His unconditional love, forgiveness and grace and to assure them that He still has a plan and a purpose for their lives. [Q] Living Single with Purpose This panel discussion will cover ways to make your single years a beautiful, exciting, fulfilling time with purpose and direction. The discussion will cover a wide range of topics, including those submitted by you. [R] Embracing the Life I Didnt Expect Celebrate Gods life-giving promises, even when life presents unexpected detours and stops. This workshop, designed for singles, will examine how the challenge of remaining optimistic in the face of doubt and disappointment can strengthen you, deepen faith and lead to more authentic relationships with God and others.

Hot topics are optional small group sessions, where honest discussions are held amongst group participants. They are not instructor-led, but facilitated, and designed to promote awareness, empathy and comfort by hearing the testimonies of women sharing the same special circumstances. They are in addition to the workshops, and will be scheduled at intervals that are designated as free time.
