Habakkuk 3:18-Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior.
This will be a day for ladies to learn to live “a joy filled life”. All women are welcome regardless of church affiliation. Nursing babies are welcome.
Coffee, snacks, and participation in 3 break-out sessions included in $25 cost of registration. Lunch is available for an extra $7. We have a wonderful selection of tables of vendors with books, pottery, jewelry, hand sewn and hand knit goods, SEED ministries (Fair Trade items brought to us from the far corners of the world), handmade cards, and an assortment of many other interesting, creative things.
Scholarships available. Please call Northgate FMC office at 343-4011, or ask at the information table in the church lobby.
“On the adventure of my life, God has challenged me to step out of my comfort zone over and over. My motto has to say yes and “Just Start” and let God take care of the rest. I have fallen several times, been knocked over and and had to start again but it has been worth the risk every time. I have had the best company along the way with my husband of 22 years and my four amazing kids. For those I am privileged to cross paths with, it is my desire to leave them better off for having known me.”
In the endless pursuit of Happiness, we can drown out the true source of JOY. In the midst of the trials and challenges of life, we can lose our JOY. In the everyday, we can forget that JOY is a choice – our choice! Join us as we DISCOVER our Joy, learn to DEFEND it and DECLARE it regardless of what life throws at us. #choosejoy
