Give Yourself a Break: Discover the Secrets to God’s Rest

Written by Debbie Wilson

Do you dream of letting go of worry? What would it be like if you didn’t react when people pushed your buttons? Imagine not being shaken by an unexpected bill or an unwelcomed doctor’s report. Would you like a peace that isn’t tied to your circumstances or other people’s approval? Have you promised yourself when this passes then I’ll rest? If so, Give Yourself a Break is for you.

Give Yourself a Break is an interactive Bible study that shows you how to apply the secrets of God’s rest to ten areas of your life. Isn’t it time you gave yourself a break and enjoyed God’s rest?

Winter 2014 Study

the-great-divorceJoin our discussion on the C. S Lewis classic The Great Divorce.

C. S. Lewis describes a group on an imaginary bus ride from hell to the edge of heaven. In this book Lewis uses vignettes of different ghosts to help us understand the eternal truths about heaven and hell. The skewed values and perceptions of the ghosts help us identify our own blind spots and shed worldly views that rob our joy and anticipation of heaven.

For women: facilitated by Debbie Wilson

Date: January 22th-March 5

When: Wednesday evenings from 7-9 p.m

Cost: You must order your own book, The Great Divorce. You can check with Amazon, Christian Book Distributors, or Barnes and Noble.

Give Yourself a Break (At two locations on different days)

Written and facilitated by Debbie Wilson

The serene picture of a swan gliding across a pond belies the energetic paddling beneath the surface. Entering God’s rest also requires effort. Biblical rest is more than a day off; it’s a lifestyle of being yoked to Jesus.

Learn how to identify and capture ten thieves that creep into our thinking and rob rest. Give Yourself a Break from unreasonable expectations, difficult people, worry, regret, pressure to perform, and more. God’s rest awaits you.

Your Invitation to A Better Life – Lessons from Women Named in Jesus’ Genealogy by Debbie Wilson                  

About the Class: If you think Jesus came from a line of respectable, pedigreed, blue bloods, then you will be surprised. This study explores the lives of the five women listed in Jesus’ genealogy as recorded in Matthew.  One was a professional prostitute, two others were involved in sexual scandal, two came from pagan cultures and another was falsely accused of immoral behavior. Each of them faced incredible hardship.

Do you find yourself praying for smooth sailing or an easy life?  Then perhaps, like me, you will be challenged to change your prayer to one of becoming a stronger person. We will look at the challenge to forgive, to start fresh, to persevere, and to live bold faith. Do you want to be a woman God uses?  Join us as we walk with these imperfect women God used in extraordinary ways.
