Saying YES to God's Word

None of us would choose to eat a piece of steak that has already been chewed by someone else. But when it comes to our interaction with God's Word we settle for

what others have said, what they have

already "re-chewed" rather than

discovering for ourselves what God's

Spirit is saying through the Scriptures.

In this workshop we will explore some

basic ways to "chew" the Word for

ourselves. If the flavour of steak is

better if someone else hasn't already

chewed it, then the "flavour" of the

Word of God is that much spicier and

sweeter when we chew it ourselves.

What does God want

me to do?

This is a question that task-oriented, purpose driven women who love Jesus Christ often ask. The good news is that, no matter what our gifting or where we find ourselves in life, God’s Word has given us the answer - “Encourage one another daily as long as it is called today.” Hebrews 3:13. Before we can learn how to practically encourage one another, we must first understand the heart behind our actions and character of a Godly encourager. Join me as we look into the life of one of the Bible’s greatest examples (apart from Jesus himself) and be encouraged to encourage others for His glory. 

Is Jesus Christ Lord & Master of your life?
