HEART TO HEART–
A Journey of Faith: God's Hopes and Dreams for Your Reality
This semester in Heart-to-Heart we will continue with relevant and practical teaching about the men and women remembered for their faith in Hebrews 11. Their stories have the potential to transform your fear in life into faith in God. The study promises to help you weave hope into your reality no matter how overwhelming or challenging that reality may be.
God who created your heart to dream, hope, and believe in a good future knows that life is more often marked by disappointment, anxiety and fear over the future. Therefore, he invites you on a journey of faith to believe him in spite of the hard things in your circumstances, and come to trust him for something even better than you could ask or imagine.
COMPANION BOOK: Unquenchable: Grow A Wildfire Faith that Will Endure Anything by Carol Kent
Carol Kent’s book is profound, authentic and hard to put down. She explains that God chose fire to represent his power, judgement, protection, and glory throughout history and “the challenge we all face is that life can dim our fire or even quench it, whether by the soggy mist of the mundane, or the quenching downpour of crisis.” Carol personally discovered that God’s Word contains secrets of nurturing his refining fire in our lives. She tells her story, and that of countless others, who have come to know God deeply through his fire at work in unimaginably good ways through unimaginably difficult circumstances.
The Storm Inside: Trade the Chaos of How You Feel for the Truth of Who You Are by Sheila Walsh
Do you realize that you are a daughter of the King? You need to live, hope, and dream as if this were true–because it is! You don’t need to be paralyzed with fear, frozen by the chaos you feel inside. Instead, you must choose to stand on the truth of who God says you are.
In The Storm Inside, popular teacher and author Sheila Walsh unpacks the stories of women from the Bible who faced seemingly insurmountable problems–regret, shame, insecurity, and heartbreak. And just like the women from the Bible, you can overcome the lies the enemy uses to torment you. You too can rely on the truth of God’s word so you can stand during the strongest storms of your life.
Join us as we learn from 8 women in the Bible how to move from:
- Heartbreak to Strength (Hannah)
- Disappointment to Hope (Women with Issue of Blood)
- Fear to Joy (Mary Magdalene)
- Shame to Love (Samaritan Woman)
- Regret to Rest (Rahab)
- Insecurity to Family (Ruth)
- Insignificance to Courage (Esther)
- Despair to Faith (Sarah)
