Together, we will allow God's Word in this 10 month Beth Moore study to help us learn how to face crises, afflictions, relationships, doubts, concerns, and fears.

Optional: 1st and 3rd Wednesdays, we will informally connect at a local coffee shop.

Best-selling author, Jen Hatmaker, is convinced life can be lovely and fun and courageous and kind. She knows how the squeeze of this life can make us competitive and judgmental, how we can lose love for others and then for ourselves. In 'For the Love,' she reveals how to: break free of guilt and shame by dismantling the unattainable Pinterest life, learn to engage our culture's controversial issues with a grace-first approach, be liberated to love and release the burden of always being right, identify the tools you already have to develop real-life, all-in, know-my-junk-but-love-me-anyway friendships, escape our impossible standards for parenting and marriage by accepting the standard of "mostly good," and laugh your butt off. In this raucous ride to freedom for modern women, Jen bares the refreshing wisdom, wry humor, no-nonsense faith, liberating insight, and fearless honesty that have made her beloved by women worldwide. Treats and fellowship at 7p, followed by the live book club with Jen Hatmaker. Books are available at the Oak Hills Church Resource Center for $13 or you can download from Amazon.com for your iPad. Please read through chapter 6 prior to our first gathering on September 15.
