ENGAGE STUDIES AT BRANDON

Truthfilled – The Practice of Preaching to Yourself Through Every Season

Women | Amy Cannon
Tuesday, January 17-February 28 | 9:30-11:30 AM | Adult Min Bldg Rm 6
Many of us want God’s Word to dwell richly in us, but life can get in the way. We’d never intentionally write chapters of confusion, failure, loss, or conflict into our stories. No one plans to wrestle with her identity in Christ or the loneliness of seasons we find ourselves in as women. Through studying Paul’s example in Colossians, this study will practically lead us through preaching gospel truth to ourselves rather than believing the lies of the culture we find ourselves living in today. In every changing season of life, we can rest in God’s character, rehearse our identity in Christ, respond in faith, and remember God’s provision for us.
Workbook fee: $17
