Make personal discoveries such as: what plays into the choices you make (or don’t make) for your health and the way different types of foods uniquely affect you and how you feel (both negatively and positively). The Wellness Revelation will change the way you perceive yourself and the way that you live your life. This time the change will occur from the inside out.

APPS 4 iMoms – ‘The Shelter of God’s Promises’ by Sheila Walsh: Where do you turn for shelter in the worst storms of life? You know God’s promises, but are they for you, are they for now, are they for this? If you look to your circumstances alone, it may seem that God has forgotten you. But He hasn’t. He can’t. And He wouldn’t even if He could. God is the only promise maker who is always a promise keeper. And God’s promises will never fail you!

Is something missing in your life?  Are you going through the motions, but feeling empty? Join us this fall for a fulfilling and fun fellowship with other moms and mentor grandmas.  Learn new mothering and marriage skills, develop a closer relationship with Christ, and be showered with prayer!

‘Stuck’ by Jennie Allen: Do you feel stuck? So many of us live stuck. Stuck in trying to seem perfect. Stuck in sadness. Stuck feeling numb. Stuck pursuing more stuff to make us happy. Stuck in something we can’t even name. These stuck places often go unattended inside of us and they are shaping our lives more than we would like to think. We’ve been trying to fix this feeling with everything but… God. He has a plan for these spaces inside of us, the places we feel broken, but we have to go to Him. Stuck is a journey to take an honest look at the fight going on inside, leading us to the God who has a plan to restore it, to restore us.
