Who is God? Why am I here? How should I live? These are just a few of the pressing questions that must be answered in every person's life. Thankfully, God has provided the answers---in Scripture! Today, our guest will outline the essentials of the Christian faith, laying the groundwork for discussion and understanding. Join us to know not only WHAT you believe but WHY you believe it.
If you have been hurt, neglected, rejected, or abandoned by your father, it may feel like every aspect of life is affected by that broken trust. Even your relationship with God can feel tenuous, but there is hope. Today our guest will share her own story of father wounds, along with eye-opening examples from wounded women in Scripture who were transformed by the love of God. With great compassion, she will help you identify your father wounds and offers practical tools to help you overcome insecurity, low self-esteem, perfectionism, and trouble connecting with God as your loving heavenly father.
