Women’s Bible Study
Kendra Lamb leads this group that is enjoying a study called, Present Over Perfect, by Shauna Niequist. Busyness drains our souls and harms our bodies. When you don’t have a moment to be still, how can the still, small voice of God’s wisdom and love speak into your life? Shauna Niequist was in a season of extreme busyness that finally broke her enough to become desperate for change. In Present Over Perfect, Shauna shares what she’s learned in her journey toward slower living, which has become more abundant, fruitful living. Come alongside to rest, play, and recreate. What you’ll find there satisfies more than you can imagine.
