Heart to Heart: God's Hopes and Dreams for Your Reality; A Journey of Faith
The same God who created a woman’s heart to dream, hope, and believe in coming good for herself and those she loves, knows that life can be marked by disappointment, anxiety and fear. Therefore, he invites her on a journey of faith to believe him in spite of the hard things and come to trust him for something even better than she could ask or imagine.
Faith: the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.
This semester in Heart-to-Heart we will study Hebrews 11 and let it transform our fear into faith. The relevant and practical teaching about men and women remembered for their faith in Hebrews 11, promises to help us weave faith into our reality no matter how overwhelming or challenging that reality may be. We will incorporate a bi-weekly teaching segment using Kay Arthur’s “How to Study Your Bible” which will equip you to study God’s word with more confidence.

Discerning the Voice of God: How to Recognize When God Speaks by Priscilla Shirer (Video Study)
Do you feel that the ability to hear God's voice is for other people and not for or you? Is it only for people who lived in Biblical times? Not at all!
The God who loved you enough to die for you loves you enough to talk to you. And wherever you are in your spiritual walk, God will find a way to speak to you in a way you will understand. This study will teach you how to become acquainted with the Voice that has spoken from a fire and a cloud, with visible signs and an invisible Spirit, through a burning bush and burning hearts.
Come and discover the root to clear and daily communication with God—humble obedience. Learn how surrender unlocks His many blessings intended for us, centers us in His will, and helps us discern His voice in everyday life.
Through her weekly teaching videos and accompanying workbook, Pricilla will:
- Challenge us in the discipline of daily Bible study.
- Give us practical advice for knowing and understanding God’s voice through His Word.
- Teach us to recognize the Holy Spirit’s character, language, and tone of voice.
- Equip us to experience a deeper relationship with God, and strengthen our daily walk with Him.
