What's our Worry?"  The Bible invites us to, "Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you."  How do we do that? While women have plenty of things to worry about, come discover what it takes to live a worry free life.

Where's Our Joy?" Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” But where’s our joy? Women often battle worry, anxiety, and unhappiness instead of living a life of joy. In this seminar discover the steps to take toward an abundant life.
