Wounded Women of the Bible: Finding Hope When Life Hurts

By Dena Dyer & Tina Samples, Led by Susan Ohlms (available both in-person and virtually; Women only)

Begins September 3 - 11 weeks - Homework: 1 to 1.5 hour each week

When we have been wounded, we have two ways to run: towards God or away from Him. Though we may not understand our wound, rest assure God does. He wants us to come to Him so He can touch and restore us - God can, and does, use our wounds to raise up His daughters to reflect His honor and glory. With scripture, this book offers hope and examples of God’s love as it weaves stories of women in the bible together with modern day issues we as women face. Sometimes what looks overwhelming to us, God in His mercy, can make beneficial to raise us up and make us whole.

Do you long for a meaningful life? Are you seeking fulfillment? These inner urges often begin with the calling God gave when He created you. He longs for each of us to step in to that calling. The women in this book are not fictional. While the Bible doesn't give us their full story, we can learn the significance God had in their lives. Through their accounts we will learn how we, too, can have a richer, happier life with God and others.
