2014 Workshop

Women's Ministry: Is Fear An Emotion?


Through a life-changing experience I discovered a stronghold. FEAR! There are others who have experienced challenges that made them afraid. I wanted to share my journey and encourage women to empower themselves and to persevere through the fear and stay focused on God. Persevere Through the Fear – Why do we struggle with fear so much? “Fear not, be not afraid!” is the most repeated command in the Bible, one for every day of the year! And yet, we are still fearful. Is fear an emotion, an illness, or a weapon formed against us? Come to this workshop to explore: Reasons for fear, Ways to conquer fear, Tools to help change your thinking. Gain insights on increasing faith, decreasing fear, gaining freedom. Live a life that is richer, fuller and peaceful. Dare to not only dream, but to follow that dream without fear!
