Purpose-Filled Women or Effective Women: Unlocking our Power and Potential
Not only are women who have given their lives to the Lord intended to be incredibly purposeful and powerful, they are also gifted, beautiful, and free to be who God made them!! However, insecurity, comparison, filters through which we see life, effects of wounds, difficult circumstances, and doubt causes us to believe we are anything but effective!! This talk passionately engages every woman right where she is through concepts of freedom, prayer, power, the Bible, increasing faith, and how to stay in the truths of Christ and who He says we are.
Identifying and Healing the Effects of Emotional Wounds
Because God is glorified most in relationships, they are often targets for discontent, false expectation, and self-protection. Our present styles of relating to others are often shaped from past wounds. In addition, they way we view life, circumstances, and others can be deeply impaired because of damage done through lies. This seminar very specifically and practically discusses ways in which anyone can become skilled at identifying and correcting (through the truth of Christ) lies from past wounds. The concept of deep healing and proper perspective of victory is also addressed.
This compelling talk for a young generation is on living life passionately for God and how our “self” trips us up in the process of trying. Relevant examples, gripping stories, cultural references, and pertinent Scripture all draw the listener in to question whether he or she falls in one of two categories: those looking to get or those looking to give. Ultimately the talk addresses the question, “How am I spending my life?”
Why We Do What We Do: Our Search for Significance
Every person has a desire for meaning, purpose, and value. This talk explores our motivations, our patterns of relating to others, and common stumbling blocks in the pursuit of significance. Wounds, approval issues, performance traps, numbing ourselves, sources of idols, discontent, what it looks like to be satisfied in Him alone are some of the items discussed. It is highly practical and personal; with a goal for each woman to leave feeling more aware and further equipped to live out God’s special purpose for her.
