Prayer: The most powerful weapon in our arsenal that we aren’t using.
If you feel defeated in life’s battles, you’re not alone. Spiritual warfare is real, but we have a weapon to fight back that really works—PRAYER. When we recognize the enemy’s attacks, we know how to pray intentionally, strategically and specifically using Scripture. Want to ignite a passion for prayer that is life changing? The victory has already been won, so commit to start today—on your knees!
Kindness Toward our Children
God commands us to be kind, yet even Christian families struggle with showing kindness in the home! In this session, we will find grace for our journey – plus discover strategies to be more gentle and patient with the ones we love most. We can work to create a true culture of kindness in our home!
You’ve Got the Power: The art of using your words wisely.
“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me!” Is that REALLY true? In an age when technology disseminates words instantly and globally, it behooves us now more than ever to acknowledge the far-reaching and powerful impact of our words! In this workshop, we will delve into Scripture and explore why words are so powerful, what God says our words have the power to do, what God says our words ought to be, and how we can become women who use our words more wisely.
Between a Rock and a Hard Place: Ministering to people right where they are.
In the Psalms we are comforted by the inspired words of writers who were often found at the end of their ropes or “between a rock and a hard place”. The Psalms remind us that everyone experiences hardships and everyone is tempted by their questions to doubt God. These Psalmists give us examples of Paul’s instructions in 2 Corinthians 1:4. These Psalms of lament are models of how to journey from doubt to faith. From heartbreak to hope. This breakout looks at how Scripture gives us a different perspective of our “rocks and hard places”.
Technology: Friend or Foe? Is technology destroying our lives?
Imagine a hammer. This is a tool that can build up or tear down: it depends on who is using it and for what purpose. During this breakout, we are going to look at how technology is a tool just like the hammer. So now, we have the choice to use it for good or to use it for evil.
These Are My People: Becoming Eternity Sisters with a Heart for Discipleship.
In this session, we will see what Jesus requires of us as disciples & disciple-makers. We will discuss true spiritual friendships and how meeting with a group of women as co-laborers in Christ empowers us through the Holy Spirit in the Word! Whenever we meet together in the name of Christ, we watch over one another in love, fully aware that the Spirit of God is present to empower us for our walk with Christ.

Crushing Comfort: Knowing the God of all comfort keeps us from comfortable idols.
Have you ever found yourself getting stuck in the same struggles? Do you seek comfort in other things rather than God? Join us as we engage in a discussion about comfortable idols and how God is the better answer.
Being Real: Destroying the myth of the masks we wear.
Do you realize that we often hide the parts of us that God can use? If Satan can get us focused on ourselves by magnifying our imperfections, pointing out our failures and our weaknesses, he can make us ineffective in our relationships, in our homes, in our jobs, in the church and ultimately our witness. We need to be real with each other. We need to show others how God works through our weaknesses and our imperfections.
