The Best Yes

For: Women

Just because you have the opportunity, does this really mean that is God’s will for you? Are you living with the stress of an overwhelmed schedule and aching with the sadness of an underwhelmed soul? There is a big difference between saying yes to everyone and saying yes to God. In this study we will discuss a) how to cure the disease to please with a biblical understanding of the command to love; b) how to escape the shame and guilt of disappointing others by learning the secret of the small no; c) how to overcome the agony of hard choices by embracing a wisdom-based decision-making process and d) how to rise above the rush of endless demands and discover your Best Yes today.

Details: This is a 10-week course with an average of 1-2 hours of homework per week.

When: Mondays 7-9pm, beginning September 12
